I had this at the Steelgaarden at the Bethlehem Brew Works earlier this week. Their beer selection is amazing and I always make it a point to try something special like this when I get out that way. Lambic's aren't normally my thing, but it's a style that I enjoy and respect well, because it's so out of the ordinary and representative of the range of flavors that beer can take on. This brew is no exception to that!
This had a good pour to it - the head and carbonation were low, but the color was a beautiful crimson red and the taste matched it. Nicely tart, sour, and yogurt-like, but not overly medicinal or band-aid like. It finished clean but the lambic taste lingered, and there wasn't any aspect of this that was too sharp. I loved the sentiment on the bottom too! It was plum-colored and very heavy, and complimented the top portion of the beer well. It took me quite a while to down this bottle, but it was nearly a dessert unto itself and the aftertaste and mouthfeel was nearly as a good as each sip.
I could hardly feel the alcohol in this, and for someone unaccustomed to this style of beer, it grew on me pretty quickly. It's not for everyone, but for those who like fruity beers with taste, substance, and durability, this will fit nicely. A shame that we don't have a place like the Steelgaarden here in Jersey!

This pours a clear red persimmon color. There’s a slight funk, and a green apple note (a positive one) atop a raspberry aroma. On the palate I get raspberry raspberry raspberry… Lots of flavored raspberries with a touch of the green apple. Decent enough.
Serving type: on-tap
