Pink berry juice pour with quick white cap; no retention or lace; no real clarity, just verging on opaque. Nose is sour berries, funky barnyard straw and wt horse blanket. Sour raspberries, funky hay up front; semi sweet base middle; dry tart finish. Light body with medium light carbonation; puckering with some acidity. Complex mix of fruit notes that blend well with a horsey nose; the fruit is vibrant and the tart raspberries shine.

Bright reddish-copper with a thick fuzzy white collar of bubbles.

This is far more sour than the Framboos I had before it, instigating some coughing for a second as it caught me off guard. It's also a bit more complex, but the nearly acetic harshness is a ding against it for me. Oaky tannins and seedy raspberry come with peppery sesame and sweet bing cherry.

The medium body has a crisp fizz and a chewy dry finish.

This is a great Lambic, one of the best I've ever had. It lives up to the hype.

Look: semi-clear dark red with a pink hue with a thin white head

Aroma: strong fruity and very nice aroma dominated by raspberry and cherry

Flavor: The flavor is tart raspberry and tart cherry and maybe strawberry. It is very fruity, it is tart but not too tart, there's subtle tannins, a little bit sweet then and some woody funk. It is really delicious and fruity.

Feel: light to medium

This beers greatest strength is also its greatest weakness: the bursting ripe fruit. It is great in the smell with a bouquet of raspberry, apple, lime, strawberry and peach. The taste it drive the other flavors of hay, mushroom, soil, and wood, but the weakness come in how it continues to dominate into the aftertaste where it promptly turn to vinegar, which is a shame because 3 fonteinen almost never does this. However, you can taste that this was well crafted with a love of good beer, and it shows everywhere else.

Color and complexity on the nose are great, however to Rustic and earthy and not enough part lactic acid for me to really enjoy it. Honestly not worth the hype in my opinion
