Bottle to wine glass. Share with DC.

Muted red orange color, clear, small white head, fades quickly soda-like to lacing. Reforms easily, but is still miniscule.

Aroma: raspberry, funky yeast and grains, very smooth mix.

Taste: tart raspberry. Lemon, sour patch kids. Tasty, but can only take so much of it at one time.

Feel: excellent carbonation, light body. A touch sticky.

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.

Blend no. 74 season 18/19 poured on dec 19, 2020 from cellar temp.

Pours a pale ruby red with orange tint
Nose is jammy raspberry, mild funk and barnyard, oak. Minimal lemon round out

Taste follows with a nice raspberry flavor, finishing with a nice funk and barnyard, green apple, lemon, and oak

Light on the pallet initially but lingers. good carb

Overall, great raspberry lambic that checks all the boxes without being too acidic

Poured from a bottle (bottled 12Sep2019 - #109, 18/19) into an apple wine glass

L: pours a light and clear ruby orange with a moderate very slightly pink-tinted white head that fades after a minute or two. Very minimal visible carbonation,

S: great raspberry-forward nose, on a slightly funky and tart lambic foundation. Raspberry flavor is fairly sweet, makes me think of raspberry sorbet. Lambic funk has a bit of that barnyard/cheese thing going on, second fiddle to the raspberry (as is the tart aroma for that matter). Cheese funk and acidity ramp up now that it’s hit room temperature, raspberry still there but secondary

T: flips here a bit, would say I get that lambic funk first followed quickly by the raspberry - or at least they’re neck and neck. More tart to open with a bit of cheesy funk at first, followed closely by that sweeter raspberry character from the nose. Medium finish that ends nicely tart and acidic, moderately drying. Once it’s hit room temperature the base beer shines through much more, leaving a yeasty note in the finish I wasn’t getting before. Great balanced oak character

F: medium carbonation, medium- body, medium+ acidity a bit elevated as it hits room temp

O: a delicious fruited lambic, captures the fruit well while staying true to the funky/wild parts of the brew. A pinch on the sweet side at first, as it warms up that mellows with the base lambic shining through more. Overall great, as I expected a delicious Belgian beer
