750ml bottle dated 3/4/16 poured into a wine glass
A: Opaque raspberry red with a one-finger head
S: Lots of raspberry, some yeast/wheat, a touch sweet
T: Dry, bready/raspberry, a touch sour but not much complexity
M: Light-bodied, a little sour/ a little sweet
O: This needs to pick a direction and go with it. Either fruity or sour. Instead the lack of direction leaves it rather average

750 ml. bottle.

Getting down to the dirty Belgian Lambics. This brew looks great, nice shade of red body with golden hues nice slightly pink head. Some raspberry seeds in the mix too. The aroma is pretty good. Dense raspberry tartness with some faint pepper spice. Some wood and earthen funk. Time for a taste.. Just like the aroma nice berry notes upfront which then turns to a nice sourness. Some wood dryness and some faint funk toward the finish. This finishes sweet and dry. The feel is light body with par carbonation.

Overall: This brew is pretty enjoyable, considering the ABV. It's a very good lambic that is open to all crowds in the Lambic field. It's not too adventurous and yet it's drinkable beyond repair. I guess what people are looking for nowadays is acidity that will burn both your tastes buds and enamel off your teeth. All in all, this brew is worthy.

An odd beast for a raspberry lambic, with notes of apple and rhubarb throughout in addition to tinned raspberries, but really let down by lack of carbonation and a very thin and watery body, which applies to taste and feel. Not real sour, either.
