An aged version. I love how the fruit holds up on this. And the beer has a superb clarity - at first. Then all the sediment starts getting in on the game and things change up. Consistency of flavor is the most interesting thing here. Brewing mastery that keeps the drinking experience interesting, even after so long. A real pleasure to be able to drink.

(Reviewed 06-07-11 - from notes)

Thanks for sharing Todd!

A - Prune-to-blood red in color with a light haze and loose, poorly retained pink head. Great color!

S - Wow. This mells like a fresh, just rinsed-off bushel of ripe raspberries. So real! Barely sugary at all, the nose is intoxicating; slightly earthy, funky notes behind but it's pretty one-dimensional towards the fruit.

T - Big bold raspberry flavor isn't as fresh-like as the aroma but there's much better balance with the earthy, funky yeast undertones.

M - Dusty dry with a mellow sweetness and light funk finish this light-bodied fruit beer with incredibly drinkability.

O - So drinkable and tasty, this fruit beer is great for a raspberry beer but not that great as far as lambics go.

Expiry date 08DEC15. Beer is from 2011

poured it into a flute glass

ruby red body, pink foam that reduces to nothing after a while, big bubbles

smell of raspberries and red fruits in general. also a typical smell Lambic tartness

tastes fruity, clearly raspberries. very moderate sourness for a lambic and also balanced with fruity sweetness. I do not get the artificial sweeteners. Aside from the tartness this reminds me of a soda drink I had many times as a kid in Austria. It was called Himbeerkracherl.

lots of carbonation makes this really refreshing. feels velvety on the tongue.

Served ice-cold this is a perfect thirst quencher on a warm summer day. Drinking this on a freezing december night it brings back memories of summer, which is not the worst thing.
