Nice cherry flavor up front, with a pretty good amount of sediment - I got more raspberry as I sipped on. Another very nice 3F lambic, but I think I enjoyed Framboos more overall.

2013 Vintage. One of the first beers that I've had that surpassed the hype surrounding it. First pours were clear and dark pink while the sediment clouded up the last couple of pours. Only detraction was the nose which reminded me of cough syrup. This did not carry over into the taste which was an incredible balance of sour and juicy fruit. Immensely drinkable. Refreshing and slightly dry finish. Near perfect.

Sampled at a tasting. Dark ruby pour with no head. Smells sour, of vinegar, raspberries, cherries and barnyard funk. Tastes like vinegar, cherries, almonds and apple cider. Dry and refreshing.
