A-Cloudy pink, two finger pink head.

S-Wonderful raspberries, oak, grapes, some funk, not artificial at all.

T-Wow. Fresh raspberries, very sweet, mixed perfectly with tart notes that turn mildly sour. Oak in the finish.

M-Medium bodied, well carbonated and a crisp dry finish.

O-Also had at Zwanze Day. An amazing beer, how raspberries are suppose to be in a sour.

Poured from a 375 ml bottle into teku glass. Bottled February 2013. Relatively fresh and good thing it's that way.

Pours a beautiful dark pink converging on violet. Nice big fluffy pink head that dissipates quickly.

Aroma is heavy of raspberry jam, cotton candy, rose water and just a hint of earthy/funky lambic notes.

On the palate you get that big raspberry jam character from the nose along with huge floral components. Strawberry, faint cranberry,a little wet earth, and a speck of musty basement. The illusion of sweetness is present at the front of the tongue but then is demolished by a potent dryness on the finish. As I burp up I get a marvelous raspberry bubblegum taste. Yum!

Overall this is the best raspberry based sour I've had. Very much enjoyed Oude Beersels and I found Framboise De Amarosa fantastic. Also Bells Raspberry Wild One comes close but Cantillon just knows how to do fruit lambics.

Poured from a 75 cl bottle , bottled 2013.

Appearance: Poured a thin, light pinkinh head that disappears fairly quickly as the beer selles in the glass - light carbo.

Smell: Sweet n sour as raspberry. Solid - expected tartness

Taste: Obviously raspberry & sweet berry flavors take over the funk. Almost dry on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Lightly carbonated, not overpowering.

Overall: A defintely solid raz lambic that i am lucky enough to have a few bottles of and let age for quite a while.
