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

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.

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.

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.

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!

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2012
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.

hopscotch (9158) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 7, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2013 Update: Bottle... A bit more funk and sourness; a little less fruit. I’ll take that trade-off every time. Sample courtesy of GT2 at RBWGJAX2013! March 3, 2013

Bottle… Cajun Café on the Bayou Sour Festival 2012This beer rocks!… Murky dark brown ale with red highlights and a small, creamy, pink head. Excellent retention. The aroma offers big-time horseblanket funk and loads of raspberry jam. Medium-bodied and creamy with especially soft carbonation. The flavor is funky and sour, but not quite as sour as I would have liked coming from an unblended lambic – the aged hops provide both flavor and moderate bitterness. Finishes tart, a touch astringent, mildly bitter and dry. As with most 3 Fonteinen beers, the yeasty bitterness and subsequent balance turns me off just a touch. From the geuezes, I expect this; but not from an unblended fruit lambic. Still, another world class effort from Armand! Original score = 4.0 on July 7, 2012.
