Let me preface my review with a little disclaimer: I'm young, developing my palate, and hadn't tried a Lambic until I visited Cantillon in Brussels (good way to start I guess!). Anyways, I ordered a bottle of LPF at the Public Brewing Session. 2012 bottle. Served in a Lambic basket into their stemmed taster glasses. LPF pours a deeper red than Rose de Gambrinus, but lighter than Kriek (I don't know about LPK). It's a deeper pink, compared to a deeper red of Kriek. There was about half an inch of head on my pour, but my buddy got even more on his. Smelled like a wonderful raspberry bomb with the sourness/funk classic of Lambics, so I hear. The taste is wonderful. At the time, I described it as more of everything than Rose de Gambrinus. More raspberry, more carbonation, more enjoyable (not to discredit Rose). The mouthfeel of this is definitely more bubbly, which I loved. Glad I have three of these to take home and enjoy with my family and throw in the cellar. A must taste at some point in one's beer drinking career.
