(375 ml green bottle, 23.02.2014; purchased dusty single off shelf at Mr. Liquor... decanted into a teku)

L: somewhat clear, pale vinous red colored liquid; half inch high foam pad on pour, drops in short time, leaving a thick, bubbly collar and even a couple thick rings off lace... not much pop when the cork was removed

S: barrel funk, sherry, berry jam skin; definitely doesn't smell fresh, despite the powerful intensity of the aromas coming off it

T: a little more of that sherry note up front, with a swell of raspberry and tart in the finish; by the second sip, the raspberry is more expressive... a few sips in and it gets curiously malty; extra points for intensity, despite its fuzzy clarity

F: marginally rounded light body, bit of a swell and drag start to finish; not amply carbonated, some subtle sizzle around the sides of the tongue up front... its tartness does keep the palate a little lit up... would love for a little more snap and simmer, but it's so easy drinking

O: turned out a lot better than its inauspicuous introduction hinted at... at this point, it's a crap shoot; I could see getting this again, however, of course I'd aim to get a more recent bottling; who knows in what shape the remaining bottles are at the ol' Mr. Liquor (1931)

Bought at Liquor Shed in Casper. 2016, best before August 31st 2019.

It pours a clear red with a substantial long lasting head of foam.

I smell raspberries, both tart and semi sweet, a little bit of oak.

The taste is raspberries, maybe it is a bit past its prime, sweet and tart notes, some oak to it. Kind of dry on my palate.

Good mouthfeel despite the carbonation being on the lower side.

I would grab some fresher, no doubt aboot it.

Bottle, at Plan B, Copenhagen. Fizzy, clear red colour, initially large head. Aroma is ripe raspberries (no surprise), "over-ripe" perhaps. Fruit garden notes, smells like an "Indian summer" day. Also notes of blackberries. Flavour is again raspberries, not too sour, well balanced, vinous qualities. A supreme fruit lambic.

Dull ruby body, hazy, briefly forming a high head the colour of himalayan sea salt, but swirl the glass and a full layer returns.
Super fresh and real raspberry aroma, like you just took a berry and smashed it in your hand. Nothing artificial about it. Focused.
Flavour is like raspberry mousse, being full of raspberries (though blindfolded I might also guess strawberries or cherries) and accompanied with a sense of vanilla and cream; champagne like in feel and taste, with fine carbonation and notes of white grape; only lightly tart, this is all fruity sweetness - not sugary sweetness; medium body; off-dry finish with a whisper of hop bitters.

A focused ode to the raspberry that won't wow with complexity, but makes a great accompaniment to chocolate cake.

2016 vintage as labelled on a neck sticker. 12.7oz/375ml bottled poured into Duvel tulip. Gave my mom some in a Lindeman's flute to celebrate New Years. The end of 2020. On the bottom of the back label it's printed "Best before 31/09/2019 Batch# 73709". So apparently I had this a 1 year and 3 months after it's suggested best by date. Picked it up recently from the liquor store for around $10 I think? Maybe even a couple less.

Appearance - Small 1 finger or smaller white head. Deeply hazy raspberry colored body, maybe slightly more on the brown or orange side. On a subsequent pour I accidentally poured out the sediment. Very thick dull reddish-grey chunks. Luckily they sank to the bottom of the glass after a couple minutes. Mostly. 4.75

Smell - Enticing raspberry without any artificialness to it. Which I think is the key aspect of any fruity beer. 4.75

Taste - Fairly dry with just enough 'sweetness' to cut out any harshness. Great raspberry flavor. Tart. Isn't overbearing or artificial. Tastes very natural, very balanced, very delicious. 5

Mouthfeel - Delicious soft head gives great texture. Good effervescence. Great body. Very clean, and refreshing. 5

Drinkability - Delicious. Very drinkable. Drank it a year late, but can't imagine it could have been better than what I had. One of the better lambics I've had. 5

Warning: I don't like lambic beer at all, but this was part of a set.
Here we go.
Pours lovely red with nice lacing. The nose takes me back to my childhood's raspberry syrup and soda drinks. Lovely. The taste is not as sour as I expected, which is good. Then again, I just had a few sips of this brewery's Geuze (which was an eventual drain pour) and it left all my teeth, tongue and the roof of my mouth sour and miserable. I might finish this one, but again it's not the best.
These two lambic bottles were the negative cost of the other four non-lambic Belgians I will have later this week.
