My first time to experience a Lambic, and I will definitely be returning to this style.

Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass. Pinkish red body with a slightly fluffy pink head that quickly decays.

Nose was raspberry with some funk, and the flavor followed the nose. I'm not sure what to make of this as I enjoy it, but have trouble thinking of it as a beer. I think the yeast funk helped to distinguish it from just a fruit drink.

Mouth was nice and fizzy, which seemed appropriate.

All in all, an interesting and drinkable beer. Not something I want regularly, but on special occasions, it is refreshing and even my wife will drink it.

Virtually transparent brew, beautiful garnet in color, with a surprisingly enduring and firm pink/purple head - anywhere from one to two fingers depending on the pour. Leaves a lot of nice scattered lacing on the glass.

Raspberry aroma; surprised? Beyond that, there's some mild funk and earthy yeast.

Raspberry dominates the flavor, as well, more so than any of the other Lindeman's lambics. Still, there's a nice background of straw, light funk, and chewy yeast flavors. Very sweet.

Too much sweet, sugary retention in the mouth. Nice but not overpowering pucker factor from the sourness. Very smooth, no sting, but still lively.

Balanced and approachable beer. A little too heavy on the raspberry, which isn't my favorite flavor, but other than that, a very drinkable and tasty beer.
