Interesting blend. Long finish, nice color (once everything settles), funk on the nose. Haven't had many beers to be this funky on the tongue. Perhaps my first foray into a non-sweetened lambic but certainly worth the price of admission. Will probably get another bottle for fun

Nice raspberry sour. Had in tulip from tap at local watering hole. Poured a slightly muddy reddish color w slight head. Good tart aroma with hint of raspberry. Flavor followed aroma, with more rasp on finish. Not overly tart. Lighter on tongue than ABV suggests.

Gorgeous ruby/magenta with a thin white head and perfect uniform lacing around the glass.

Nose is raspberry jam and malt vinegar. The latter is strong and off-putting.

Taste is very jam-like. Lots of raspberries and sugar. Not overly tart but it's up there. The vinegar from the nose is present but far subdued compared to the nose. A good amount of funk.

Medium/full bodied. Lower carbonation.

Not the raspberry bomb that I was expecting/hoping for, but it's a solid brew aside from the nose that I didn't care for.

One of the most jammy raspberry aromas I've ever experienced. As far as raspberry jam goes, only Jester King Atrial Rubicite beats it. Quite sour and not as round as a flavor as I expected, because the nose was much sweeter.

Strong clear red color. Pours with a champagne-like pinkish foam that is slow to fade. Throughout it maintains a effervescent carbonation that never stops.
Smells of funky raspberries
Tastes follows the smell, funky raspberries but with a light peppery finish.
Seems very much an accessible classic fruit lambic style, just a little less refined than the popular Cantillon and 3F versions.
