4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A bottle from a different time. Those white whale beers. One of two bottles, shared with friends. But other friends were missed when it was opened.
Dry, tart, fading fruit, brisk nose, great fine mouse. Raspberry was, well, mature. I think this was the best demonstration of brett on Raspberry action, I have ever seen.
Thank you Amand.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle, huge thanks to Sam. Fresh raspberry, solid tartness, woody, hint of vanilla, a great beer. Thanks Sam.

Shared with Hoprider, a huge thanks to mr. Enjoyit for getting us this badboy.
Pour deep ruby red, with a small slightly pink head.
Aroma of rasberries, slight funk, tart, vinegar, sour sweets. Pretty darn delicious. The taste is rater sour, with a nice amount of fruity sweetness. Medium bodied, with an average carbonation. - sure as hell is delicious, and this truly is a huge lambic.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2011 bottle. Pours a beautiful clear dark red. Big fresh, seedy raspberry aroma, with a hint of white vinegar. Flavor is sweet and tart raspberry, raspberry seeds and more white vinegar. Almost no funk. Medium body with and little carbonation. Tasty beer, but not amazing. Maybe some time in the cellar will help this out.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. From the latest batch. Pours a cloudy red with a very minimal head that collars around the glass rim. Raspberry nose to be expected but the raspberry is a little more muted than I anticipated. Some wood notes as well and funk. Tart and sweet raspberry, caramel, with a nice building level of sourness. Very nice. Medium mouthfeel. A little under carbed and I think more carbonation would benefit this beer. Overall, very good. 3F please make more.

Bottle shared by mattyb83! (Big thanks, never thought I’d see this one!) Dark raspberry colored pour, very little carbonation and an aroma of vibrant fresh raspberries. Flavor is also fresh light raspberries, slightly thin body, a little lingering tart sweetness. A really nice beer? Yes. However I wouldn’t trade away by first born to get a bottle.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle shared in NH. Pours rich purple with a creamy, light pink head. Heavy tart raspberry nose. Flavor is well and tart, with deep raspberry, faint funk, light dryness, hints of wood and grass, a few earthy touches. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Good, biting sour finish, a bit of funk, rich raspberry notes. Superb, delicious beer. Extremely refreshing.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
2011 split three ways with friends. Framboos pours a dark maroon solid red with thin frothy white heading on a soft pour. A huge raspberry bouquet in the nose including seedy and tart raspberry with some stems, funk, and sulfur. Whole, hearty raspberries on the bush. The taste lives up to the nose showcasing some serious raspberry pulp, slightly tart juice, and a finish of yogurt and funk, especially as it warms. Great finish overall with no harsh notes to be found making it incredibly drinkable and enjoyable. Cheers to world class fruit lambics and to Armand for [re-]making this!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle of the 2011. Cloudy ruby red with a white head that leaves a small lacing. Aroma is barnyard funk, raspberries, strawberry jam, hints of musk and mushroom. Very good balance between sweet fruitiness and sour tartness, long sweet and sour finish with a touch of dryness. Very complex. Flavours are raspberry, sour plums, cider vinegar, hint of citrus. Truly delicious and worthy of the hype.
