Vestergaard (1577) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - FEB 4, 2015
15 cl pour from a 2011/2012 (donít remember when it is from) 75cl bottle thanks to a couple of nice guys from Drikkeriet at Fermentoren. Pours a deep, dark, semi-clear red with a small pink head. Aroma has lots of both tart raspberries and riper sweet, frozen, dirty raspberries. Deep vinous notes, almost like rosť or lambrusco.. well, not in a particularly bad way. Taste shows some more funky and leatherish fruits, and thus showing the aging. Very sour and dry, but with ripe raspberry sweetness. Got some of the almost metallic sourness that frozen strawberries sometimes have. Havenít had this fresh, but damn, the aging seems to suit this beer well! Crisp and fresh body, yet deep and tasty. Thrilled to have this!

KyotoLefty (9033) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 23, 2015
2011 bottle. Deep raspberry nose, some unsweetened jam, green olives, leather. Very funky. Great level of sourness, a touch of yogurt, good fruit, leather, lemon. Unexpectedly deep orange-red and cloudy. Lovely balance, lots of barnyard feel, dusty. wildly complex and sourness is in check. Extremely savory, meaty, nor sweet or sour. Very drinkable. Great, and very interesting.

PhillyCraft (5486) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 28, 2014
2011 Bottle generously shared by Al at awesome session. Paired with some trans-Himalayan. Pours light murky cranberry color. Aroma of raspberry, cranberry, wood dankness, and Flavor is so sour and puckery but never acidic, ultra tart raspberry, horse blanket, oak, jam and lemon rind. Medium to fuller body. Mouth watering and salivating with each sip. One of the best 3 Fonts Iíve tried. Ultra dry and insanely good lambic.

Bottle, 75cl corked. 2011 vintage, 6% ABV. A pinkish reddish pale brownish beer with a small, white head. The aroma has lots of raspberry, some earthy notes, barnyard and leather and a lemony touch. Itís very dry on the palate, puckering, with a pleasant carbonation level.Medium to full body. Lemon juice, earthy notes and loads of raspberries in the flavor, with a lasting finish. Loads of raspberries in this one, in a matured way. Wonderfully palate cleansing. Was actually expecting more complexity, but itís sure nice, and the raspberry and cellar and funk are lovely. Would definitely like to repeat this in the future. 141024
