375 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 2/20/2015. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy ruby red/orange color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky light pink head with amazing retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Dense soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big lightly tart/tangy raspberry jam, fruit skin/seeds, peach, plum, strawberry, lemon, red apple, hay, straw, grass, oak, candi sugar, lightly toasted bread, light musty funk, and yeast/oak earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of raspberries, fruity/light funk yeast, oak, candi sugar, and pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tart/tangy raspberry jam, fruit skin/seeds, peach, plum, strawberry, lemon, red apple, hay, straw, grass, oak, candi sugar, lightly toasted bread, light musty funk, and yeast/oak earthiness. Light fruity/lactic tartness, fruit tang, and yeast/oak spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of tart/tangy raspberry jam, fruit skin/seeds, peach, plum, strawberry, lemon, red apple, hay, straw, grass, oak, candi sugar, lightly toasted bread, light musty funk, and yeast/oak earthiness on the finish for a while. Awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of raspberries, fruity/light funk yeast, oak, candi sugar, and pale malt flavors; with a great malt/tartness balance, and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Slightly increasing dryness from fruit tang/tartness. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, and lightly slick/syrupy/acidic/tangy/tannic balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.5%. Overall this is an awesome sweetened fruit lambic! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of raspberries, fruity/light funk yeast, oak, candi sugar, and pale malt flavors; very smooth and refreshing to drink with the mellowly tart/tangy/drying finish. Super jammy fruit with great yeast complexity; balanced sweetness with nice oak presence. A really enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.

It pours dark red with a brown hue. Huge head, which is very in-lambic-like. Great retention and lacing too. The aroma is of pure and intense raspberry preserve. The taste is very sweet at first but it eventually balances out with the tartness and bitterness that come through at the end. A very enjoyable beer.

Apparently the Affligem glass comes close to what Mort Subite uses in their advertising, so that's what I poured it into. I thought it funny that it poured a light, peach colour but was much darker in the glass with a dark cherry hue. I could just barely see my finger on the other side of the glass. The one finger head was a dusty rose colour with some beige. Initially some incessant bubbling coming from the centre-bottom of the glass, side glass carbonation not so fizzy. Very nice lacing indeed.

I can smell fresh berries, a bit of watermelon. It sure tastes like raspberries alright, semi-sweet but inoffensive; crisp on the finish. The mouthfeel and taste have just the right balance of tartness, again a hint of watermelon. The taste and mouthfeel were closer to 3.75 in my estimation. I was looking for a hint of rotting fruit or sourness but there wasn't any. On the other hand, the refreshing acidity took away from a better finish and I kept thinking it was so much like a fruit punch or a soda pop. I expected more complexity and didn't get it.

I'm not all that familiar with lambics but I could easily substitute one of these for a dessert wine anyday: it was pleasant and fun to sip on and just might be a great conversation piece for your guests after dinner if they're game to broaden their beer horizons.

Pours a nice slightly hazy reddish color with pink head. Raspberries, a light funk, some oak, and sweetness on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with lingering raspberry fruity notes.
