2011 vintage

a - poured a 1/2 finger thick grayish head that was gone so quickly i barely saw it. the body was a dark reddish-purple color.
s - juicy and sweet raspberries, smells like fruit juice.
t - raspberries dominate with a hint of red wine grapes coming through. a hint of tartness at the front but more sweet than sour.
m - slick and medium with a dryness to it.
o - i wasn't expecting much and didn't get it. reminded me of a manishevitz wine. i won't go back to this one.

This one pours a swampy-looking brown color with some lavender and faint, ruby hints around the edges. Not quite as vibrant or colorful as I was expecting, especially compared to many other raspberry lambics. The head is soapy and gray-tinted, leaving nothing behind as it quickly dissolves to nothing but a ring.

Lots of juicy raspberries infiltrate my nostrils as I first bring the glass to my face. Some lighter, faintly vinous notes play in the background, somewhat wine-like with a mild tannic character. Aside from a developing touch of mild acidity, there really isn't much else to the aroma. No yeast, funk, or anything else - pretty basic and just full of raspberries with a little bit of grape to it. Not complex, but still refreshing.

The taste is a bit tart up front, but far from what I'd call "sour". It's more just like a quick jolt of tartness from the raspberries and then it fades into a residual, sugary sweetness. Again, the lightly vinous flavors come out; grape skins, tannins, light wine, but the raspberries are still the most prominent thing in the profile. The sweetness that bellows in about halfway through lingers long into the raspberry and fruit-filled aftertaste. The mouth feel is light and watery with heavy carbonation.

Wasn't expecting too much from this, thankfully so. Almost more of a juice than a lambic, as it was pretty one-track minded and not very complex at all. An easy drink, no doubt, and something that may be nice to open with someone who doesn't care much for beer. But don't purchase this expecting Cantillon or Drie Fonteinen quality and you won't be too upset.
