(750ml bottles) Pours a hazy pinkish red body with a small pinkish off-white head. Aroma of raspberries, yogurt, barnyard, wood, and wet leather. Flavor of raspberries, lacto, lemon, brett, and leather with a dry finish. A tasty lambic!

Bottle of most recent batch. Pours a nice ruby red color with a pinkish head. Aroma is filled with tart raspberries, with lots of funk. I get nice oak character, some vinegar, almost balsamic vinegar, some barnyard, horse blanket, light cheese aroma, light like cherry notes and quite tart aroma too. Flavor follows the nose with lots of tart raspberries, with vinous notes kind of like a Rose, some oak, vinegar, cherry like notes, and funk of, musty old flavors, barnyard, cheese, horse blanket, with a nice fruit and sourness balance. The body is medium with a dry mouth feel. Overall an amazing Fruit Lambic, the best raspberry Lambic and probably also the best Fruit Lambic I have ever had!

Uno de los grandes Hypes de la temporada pero que al menos para mi cumple todas las expectativas que puedo tener en una lambic de Frambuesa fabricada por el maestro Armand.

Bottle shared at Tkrjukoff’s CCB-day in Sätila. Pours hazy red with a small pink head. Pure aroma of raspberry. Pretty sour to the taste, raspberry and citrus. Very nice!

Thanks Leighton for sharing. Enjoyed in a HIll Farmstead Glass.

A - Murky and dark ruby red appearance. Minor level of haze and1 finger head that faded fast. Surprised at the lack of carbonation in this. The tight bubbles stuck around for a while.

S - Wow. Up front huge raspberry jam scent. Naturally, it’s funky but not over the top.

T - Nice level of lacto and solid raspberry like a jam or more like raspberry yogurt. Not very sweet though, more acetic than sweet. Funky, dry and mellow at the finish.

M - 25% carbonation. Medium body. Earthy and dry finish. Grape skin tannins sort of puckering finish.

O - This beer reminds me so closely of Hommage. Naturally, it’s more raspberry than the hommage. Still, it’s an exceptional beer and happily shared among a group of friends. Delicious.

Bottle shared at Blue Palms during RBSG 2012. Thanks to Dak for letting me have a sip off his glass after I got snubbed on a pour of my own (not cool enough I guess). Pours a hazy deep berry purple color. Striking fresh raspberry aroma, lactic yogurty, lemon, currant. Vibrant raspberry flavor, as potent as any raspberry beer I’ve had, while maintaining a great balance between lactic and acetic sourness, also melding the fruity sweetness with the firm sourness brilliantly. A lovely beer.

Mjames, 3fourths, acrococker, whatever the fuck his stupid ass name is brought this over and cracked it open at my house tonight. Vibrant aroma with some familar and strange things going on..salty, brininess over raspberry sting, solvent possibly, very piercing nose. Flavors were a lot tamer, more concentrated on the fruit and a lot less of the strange...seems underwhelming right now flavorwise, missing funk and sharpness and seems young and muddled and too early. That’s me. Still tasty though...but I want more piercing acid to come out that I’m personally not finding.

Rating # 1000. Bottle @ Sour & Bitter. Cloudy red body with a small pinkish head. Aroma is raspberries, tart, fruity, fresh. Flavor is raspberry, sourish, sweet, light basement notes. Well balanced. Drinks great now, maybe it´ll get even better.

Thanks, Chris! Pours a cloudy reddish color with a light pink head. Smells of raspberry, leather, red wine vinegar, and oak. A touch salty too, which is a bit strange. Lemon and straw, a touch of earthy funk. The flavor is quite sour, though it leans toward the acetic side. Still, some nice lactic notes and lemon zest. Raspberry is there, as is a bit of oak, leather, and must. Not anywhere near as funky as most 3 Fonteinen beers. Enjoyable, but not amazing.

UPDATED: JUN 30, 2014 750 ml bottle shared at the Woodshop 7 tasting. Nice red liquid. Lots of raspberry in the aroma but sadly some vinegar as well. Less funk than expected and also a bit of wood. Raspberry jam! Well balanced taste with medium lemony sourness, maybe some lacto and a good amount of raspberries. Nice stuff, but I miss some of the trademark 3F funk. 9/4/9/4/17=>4.3

Re-rating 2014-06-22. Bottle at Grote Dorst. 2011 vintage. Almost clear deep red liquid with small light pink head. Aroma of raspberries (an extreme amount!), lemon, light apple skin, deep barnyard and even more raspberries. Great aroma. Taste is really dry and medium sour with notes of raspberries, lemon and light sweat/barnyard. Medium bodied with low to medium carbonation. Really good beer. In good shape, none of the vinegar I found last time was left. 4/10/9/4/18 => 4.5
