This is a beautiful beer to look at. Bubbles rise from the bottom of this rudy red colored brew. From here everything went down hill. The beer was a 2013 bought yesterday, but I am not sure if aging is a good thing. Smell is not that great, not a lot of fruit, a lot of oak. Dry taste that was lacking fruit taste. I generally like Lambics, but this one was not one of my favorites.

Decent framboise, nice juicy raspberry aroma but the fruit is a bit less present in the flavor. Mildly sour, soft lambic flavors.

750ml bottle dated 3/4/16 poured into a wine glass
A: Opaque raspberry red with a one-finger head
S: Lots of raspberry, some yeast/wheat, a touch sweet
T: Dry, bready/raspberry, a touch sour but not much complexity
M: Light-bodied, a little sour/ a little sweet
O: This needs to pick a direction and go with it. Either fruity or sour. Instead the lack of direction leaves it rather average
