Bottle shared at a tasting at MrHirschybar's place.

2010 vintage.

Pours a clear cranberry juice color with a fizzy reddish-white head that fizzles to nothing. No lace on this one. Smell is of sour berry/cherry and funky earthy aromas. Taste is of extremely sour berry/cherry and a nice set of funky earth flavors. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good lambic with lots of nice sour and funky flavors.

750ml dated 29 September 2010.

Clear and pink with a tiny head while pouring that dissipates into a film around the edges of the glass. A very pretty and delicate looking beer to say the least. One of the better looking ones of recent memory.

Tart with a heavy dose of raspberries on your nose. Horsey underotnes with notes of earthy goat cheese, a touch of hay as well. More raspberries too with a touch of oak and nuttiness.

Opens with sharp acidic flavors that quickly move into fresh raspberry juice. Lots of oak with plenty of other vinous qualities on the tongue.

Medium bodied with bright carbonation. A bit dry on the finish and a little sticky on the lips.

Awesome raspberry fruit flavor with a sour bite and plenty of vinous notes. An outstanding fruit lambic, one I will have to remember to stock up on when I can. This was highly enjoyable.

375 mL 2011 vintage

A - crystal clear ruby with a pastel pink two finger head. Very little lacing

S - Raspberry, dirt, hay and a bit of peach or some other stonefruit.

T - Nice oak, tons of tart raspberries. Not quite one note, but those raspberries are fantastic. A bit of a dry sour finish, but not overpowering. Still some vanilla sweetness as well. A little more funk as it warms

M - sharp carb, but it definitely works. A bit fuller bodied than expected.

O - No surprise, awesome fruit lambic from Cantillon. Definitely one of my favs by them.

Enjoyed on 8/14/11. Reviewed from notes

A: Pours a ruby red w/ a finger of pink head that leave a trace amount at the top

S: raspberry funk! Sweet raspberry gives way to a nice funky/tart smell.

T: Much more sour tasting than the nose indicated. Sweet up front that gives into a tartness. Both the sweet and tart are raspberry flavors.

M: Light fizzy feel. Tongue and cheeks both feel the sourness.

O: A great beer to branch out into the sour world. Not super sour but sour enough to get started.

Bottled on 3/21/11

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Deschutes tulip.

A: Pours a very nice clear ruby red color. 1.5 fingers of frothy pink head that dissapates quickly but never fully leaves. No lacing.

S: Yeasty funkiness mixed with tart raspberry. Some oak in there as well.

T: The yeasty funkiness comes out up front. Tart raspberries and a good amount of oak tannins on the back end. Finishes bone dry.

M: Moderate body with moderate to high carbonation. Slightly fizzy and soft.

Overall this beer is very enjoyable! All the flavors work well together here. Nice blend of funk, tart and oak.

Deep red colour, collar of white head sits on top, no lace of any kind to speak of. Smell is full of barnyard notes at first, tart raspberry, wild yeast, balsamic/acidy notes, as it warmed the fruit was more obvious and lightly jammy smelling. Taste is of tart berry, musty barn flavours, moderately sour, puckering finish, light sweetness followed by dry cider like flavours. Fairly high carbonation, medium body, nice dry feel. This was quite nice, enjoyed the kriek more but this was quite drinkable, great flavours and solid throughout.
