Was listed as Raspberry Lambic, but I guess this is the same thing. Pours out a rich reddish colour, with touches of mahogany here and there. Topped by a pinkish-reddish foam. The nose is very prominent, with nothing too noticeable save for thick, fresh raspberries. A touch sweet, but still noticeably natural. The taste is tartn, almost a slight sourness. The raspberries come through prominently, as the beer seems to be very lightly hopped and even more lightly malted. It is a fruit beer, and intends to be a fruit beer. Not much more to the flavour profile. Tasty, but a bit one-sided. It's more full-bodied and more drinkable than a lot of traditional fruit lambics.

From EBF.
Poured a cloudy pink purplish color. Short pink-tinged white rocky head, with streams of carbonation.
Can almost taste raspberry pulp in the aroma, a musty hayfield.
Very tart and sweet, full of raspberries, wet wheat, mushrooms, a bit of lemon. The tartness pushes the other tastes over the top to greatness.
Medium body, but a very full taste.
