Bright red color and nice sour balance with the sweet raspberry but lack of carbonation absolutely kills the feel of the beer and acidity takes over. I was hoping with more time and stored on it's side it would carb up over time, doesn't seem to be the case. 2014 vintage.

Thanks for sharing Aaron!
Dark crimson, light haze. Decanted from a pitcher.
Minimal lace and foam in the glass, some bubbles in the pitcher.

Raspberry aroma, seedy wild ones. Fruit forward.
Tart and tannic, puckering and bone dry in the finish. Plentiful raspberry, minimal wood or funk. Low carbonation, very juicy. Overall very delicious and full of raspberry juice. Very nice, though at the premium price it's a one and done.

2014 bottle
L: Deep shades of currant, garnet, Merlot and jam with an exceedingly thin white head; this was insanely thick and opaque - like a raspberry colored version of tomato juice
S: Requisite raspberries with cherries, earthy tones, mustiness, and a slight funk
T: Tart raspberries, cherries, and cranberries with a hint of jammy sweetness
F: Thick and moderately carbonated despite the relatively minimal head
O: Delicious raspberry jam and bursting with juicy flavors! The funk on this one wasn't overpowering, but delicately balanced and well integrated as most lambics are. Absolutely delicious.
