look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Appearance: A beautiful bright dark red color, almost like a red wine. It has a nice white head when first poured but it almost disappears after a few sips. Also, it does leave a nice lacing on the glass.

Aroma: The loveliest raspberry aroma one could hope for in a beer (to those who enjoy fruity beers that is). It also reminded me a bit of hibiscus flower water (Agua de jamaica), a typical Mexican non-alcoholic beverage.

Flavor: A perfect balance of sweet and sour, it's almost like a raspberry soda, reminded me of a very intense and aromatic Italian soda. It also tastes a bit like hibiscus flower water, specially after the second sip. I did pucker up a bit on the last sip

Mouthfeel: It feels like an extremely carbonated fizzy drink (yet it doesn't look like it is, there are almost no bubbles formed in the glass).

Aftertaste: Very tangy and acidic aftertaste, so naturally, I loved it. Tartness factor: High

Overall: This was my very first Lambic, I had no idea fruity beers existed. Now that I do, I'm curious to try some more. I enjoyed this brew and would love to pair it with a thick piece of sweet dark chocolate cake.
