Tap at Lager Lager, Berlin. Since i love their geuze i was expecting a proper lambic but that was pretty disappointing. Nice looking beer as usual for the style; smell is fresh raspberries but no lambic identity in it; taste is a mix of raspberries and some fizzy sugary random drink; feels like a cocacola company drink and totally lacks of complexity, good for a lambic newbie but avoid if you had proper stuff already.

Off white head. Raspberry ruby color.

A rather light flavored framboise. Raspberries are there, but it is not a very strong presence. Not too sour, tart, or funky, either. Kind of has a fruit juice flavor to it.

Easy drinking, but kind of boring for a lambic beer.

From the bottle, it pours a ruby amber with a small head, quickly dissipating to a ring and island. Some raspberry in the nose. The mouth enjoys the slightly tart flavor with some raspberry. Enjoyable.

Bright magenta with pink froth that trails. 4
Black raspberries, cherry stone, slight cheese rind, wood, and touch of Balsamic. 4.25
Touch of saltine, lemon rind, aged white vinegar, raspberry seed, slight chalk, and gentle farmyard. 4
Crisp, softly fizzy, round. 4.25

Somehow, the gentle mouthfeel is the first thing to catch about this - low carb lets the flavor lie on the tongue. The lambic underneath is not hugely funky, but neither is the fruit sweet or even notably fruity - this one is all nuance, or maybe just simple. Whether that means it fails as a limbic I can't say, but it is exceedingly pleasant and rewards repeated visits. I want to pair this with soft cheese, not chocolate fondant. 4
