Poured from the bottle into a Tulip. I wish I could have used my flute but it had a rather unfortunate encounter with gravity.

Hey friends, I am back. Yay!

To start with this beer I feel like we must begin at the label itself. The picture above is of an older label (I assume) and a much more "pg" version at that. The current label has two people totally boning on it. That's called attention getting. I don't know if Draper would approve. The art leads my immature mind to many many cheap childish jokes which I I'll try my best to refrain from using.

I had a little problem drilling into the cork, I created such a mess that I felt like I was BP. Luckily for me none of the cork fell into my beer. The pour of this beer is ridiculously pretty. The head swelled up quickly in a rush of red juices, it quickly rose to a climax then sadly resided, ruining the moment for everyone involved. A thin layer of head stayed around my glass the entire time, but there wasn't any lacing. The look of the beer itself is a bright, gorgeous rosemary; it looks very wine like. The scent is rather faint, but once you really stick your nose in it you get this flowery, raspberry scent that's quite lovely. I also get some sort of 'muskiness' in the scent, a slightly earthy note of contrast. The taste is good, but to be honest I was expecting more, considering this is a real lambic, unlike what I've previously had. I like it, this raspberry, citrusy, tart flavor, but for the ten dollars - I dunno. It drinks easily, however the alcohol is noticeable, so I'm drinking it in gulps. I appreciate the presence of the alcohol in this as it adds another flavor to accompany the raspberry and keep it from being overwhelming. I enjoyed the beer, but for ten dollars I don't know if I'd pick it up again. If you like lambics, buy it drink it, maybe call it again.
