Bottling date 11/15/2019. Season 19/20. ABV is 6%.

L: Poured into a stemless wine glass. Color is like a deep rosé wine. Thin white head that fades to a soft blanket.

S: Raspberry dominates. A bit of barnyard funk and oak.

T: Follows the nose— main flavor is raspberry. Hint of lemon and barnyard funk.

F: Light, a bit acidic and dry

O: The nicest fruit lambic I’ve tried.

Aroma has very generous raspberry hints
The taste follows the nose with a pleasantly tart raspberry flavor
A light bodied well carbonated beer
A great very well balanced Lambic

Rose-copper body is quite nice, hazy, forming essentially no head even with an aggressive pour.
Mild, sharply tart, red fruit aromas of raspberry, cherry; light funk, light lemon juice.
At first the near absence of carbonation is a put off, but there is a very fine, prickly feel, and it ends up doing the job; flavour is appropriately sour, pleasantly puckering, balanced by a light fruity sweetness - like red currants more than anything; have to use your imagination to get a clear sense of raspberry, it's very subtle; there is a faint mustiness and oakiness; long, very dry finish, enticing, lightly sticky.

Give this a chance past the first few sips and you'll be rewarded. Bright and tart, with a refined and subtle effervescence and fruit character - the latter a disappointment for me, as I love raspberries.

Looks kind of strawberry light red. Smells like raspberries, and hops. Taste like Raspberries with some tart. Overall goes down nicely.

375 ml bottle, drank 10.10.21. Bottling date 18 Dec. 2019. Blend n14 Season 19/20.

Really enjoyed this, murky red raspberry color. Not the most attractive beer on the planet but the look underlies the fruit inside. I wouldn't call it overly acidic, more tart and chock full of fruit with lasting tarty raspberries. It's not as "in your face" as some raspberry wilds can be, but it's not as delicate as others are - this one is all about the thick fruit look, feel and taste. Cheers!

Shared 750 ml corked & caged bottle at local tasting. Red colour, very little carbonation, no head. Intense aroma of ripe and over-ripe raspberries. Sour and intense flavour, ripe and over-ripe raspberries again, some tart and lemony notes too.

I had the 14 (no carb) but still a wonderful beer to try. Still very delicate and fruity even if the stillness of the beer can be a bit distracting if you're looking for something more effervescent.

Season 18/19. Blend no. 29. Poured at 54 degrees. Deep gold with excellent clarity; thick, rocky white bubbles; initially poor cap retention, but as the bottle warmed, much better retention and moderately heavy lacing. Earthy raspberry aroma, with light barnyard funk; some aged cheese; fresh baled hay. Taste is raspberry, sour fruit, tart green apples and some funky hay. Light carbonation; light body, but not watery; dry, light acidic feel; minor pucker. Overall very pleasant to drink but no “wow” factors; fairly mild sour raspberry nose/taste; funk factor is low; minor ding to aroma score for cheesy notes; very good, but expensive...I’d drink again if at a lower price point.
