750ml corked and caged bottle. Shared with family.

Pours clear Ruby pink with small head and lots of carbonation. Smell is light, tart, and fruity raspberry-ness.

Taste is super tart. Almost overwhelming at first. Raspberry comes across gradually, increases. Moderate to mild woodiness.

Mouthfeel is light, dry. Overall, quite good.

A lot of fresh raspberries, small amount of tart cherries keeps the tartness to manageable levels. A classic blend of lambics and fruit from one of the world's most revered brewers. A must-have!

The beer pours ruby red with a medium pink head that recedes quickly. It has medium carbonation. The beer smells of raspberries, cherries, funk, and cheese. It tastes tart, with raspberries, cherries, cheese, funk, and minerals. Fuller body than most lambic, and on the sweet side. A great fruited Lambic here.

An amazingly brewed raspberry red lambic with smells of musty raspberries and cherries and brett. Tastes of raspberry sweetness hit the palate first followed by sour cherries and brett with subtle oakiness. This particular beer was aged Mar. 22 2018 and drinking it exactly 1 year later on Mar. 22 2019. Very very good but not giving a 5 only because I find Cantillon to be slightly better.

Love this blend. The cherry adds just enough tartness to balance out the sweet raspberries.

Almost as enjoyable to look at as it is to drink. Smells of ripe fruit, feels light and clean. Just wonderful.

Tasted from bottle. Pours a nice dark ruby red with faint pink head. Lots of berries on the aroma. Very crushable. Huge raspberries on the flavor. You do get just a hint of sour cherries. Nice light and effervescent on the mouthfeel. Delicious.

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.
