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.

DalzAle (2003) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - OCT 6, 2012
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.

Leighton (13640) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2012
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.

sarro (125) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - SEP 9, 2012
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!

GothGargoyle (1605) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 8, 2012
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.

deyholla (7741) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 8, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2013 Don’t know how to start, but thanks to Kyle. Pours a clear dark raspberry with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is full of nice fresh raspberry note that is slightly tart with a nice funkiness. Flavor has a beautiful note of sweet raspberries that have a good amount of tartness with a light acidic note and a bit of funk.

callmemickey (3511) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2013 Hazy blood red. Faintest skim of pinkish foam. A few stray streaks of lacing. Musty raspberries complement a subtle oaky earthiness. A distinctive tartness punctuates a complex and layered fruitiness (jam, candy and fresh berries). Medium bodied, gentle carbonation, nice tartness despite an otherwise gentle acidity. We opened this immediately after cracking open an Hommage--it’s amazing the difference the addition of cherries bring to Hommage--providing more sweetness there. That said, I’d take fhe Framboos right now.

jethrodium (366) - Berkeley, California, USA - AUG 30, 2012
750 ml bottle shared by cpferris. 2011 version. Big thanks to Chad. Pours a dark reddish amber with a small white head that settles pretty quickly and leaves close to no lacing on the glass. The aroma is tons of raspberry. It’s bursting with fruit. There is also a bit of funk and a mushroom note as well as a faint, slightly unpleasant medicinal note, and some strawberry jam. The taste is tart and dry. Lots of raspberry, just like the nose. There is also a light funky earthiness, a bit of strawberry jam, and a little cherry. The finish is dry and tart with a bit of funk and lots of lingering raspberry. Medium body. Low-medium carbonation. This is great right now. I’ll be curious to see how it ages if I get the opportunity to try it again.
