Lovely, hazy amber bronze color. Excellent lace retention.

Gorgeous raspberry, vinegar, oak and yeast aroma. Simple, elegant and sophisticated.

Assertive acidity without the burn. Balanced with fresh raspberry flavor adding a moderate sweetness. Smooth oak, rich malt. Extremely well balanced.

Perfect dryness from the acid. Well carbonated. I get the occasional large yeast flake which adds an odd texture for a bit.

Close to perfect example of fruit lambic.

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a tulip glass. 2013 vintage.

With three years on it still has an incredibly fruity aroma that is present as soon as you pop the cap.

Look is a muddy red brown with pink highlights. Tan head that dissipates quickly.

Definite notes of raspberry on the nose. Malty sweet syrupy note.

Taste is a perfect blend of sweet and sour. Not as much tart berry in the taste (that might be the age) but a definite thick fruit juice quality.

Probably a very different beer from when it was first bottled but still really an incredible beer. A nice blend of sweet and sour and an easy but complex drinker.
