2008 bottle, enjoyed 10/18/15. This is the absolute best lambic I have had to date. Appearance is bright ruby red, bottle gushed for about 5 seconds after opening but was caught in the glass as it was expected. 1" pinkish head stayed around for quite some time. Nose is straight Cantillon funk with massive raspberries. Taste is better than I could have ever expected, definitely the funkiest, sourest, and most well balanced Loon I have had. The raspberry and funk just do not stop. Mouthfeel is bubbly heaven. So glad I traded for this older bottle and it knocked '14 Framboos out of the water in side by side tasting.

Cotton candy froth that fades over deep magenta. 4.25
Barnyard in a big way; plus rose petals somehow, and deep sweetness underneath. 4.25
Jammy fruit, slight cheese, big raspberry and more raspberry. 4.25
Deep vinaigrette end and clean acid linger.
Dry, light, crisp. 4

300g of fruit per litre - and fruit buries all that funk that's on the nose. Not sure I’m getting the benefit of it being a 2012, either. Bright and easy, but not all it could be. 4

2011 sticker - 2014 cork
Poured a very nice burgundy color with minimal amount of head.
Nose was that typical Cantillion funk with a ton of fresh tart raspberries.
Flavor followed the nose.
Prickly, tart mouthfeel, but not mouth puckering.
Enjoyed the LPF a lot more than the LPK. Although the 100% Bio Kriek is equally as good and much easier to obtain.
