UPDATED: MAR 19, 2015 75cl, Vintage 2014, at 6%Vol, exclusive brew, with raspberries, from De Hopduvel Gent, very complex sour fruit brew, fruity/sour and slightly woody, balanced, cloudy, small head, very good brew, yet expensive!, ’Awesome smelling beer, yet sadly doesn’t have the very delicate taste of Hommage...’

Bottle 2011 version. Side-by-side with 2007 Hommage. Dark murky red, almost purple highlights and no head. Not necessarily inviting. Aroma is old rotten raspberry, some rubber, very earthy. Taste is better with tart raspberry. The acidity is still quite tamed which makes it drinkable. Light and flat palate. I prefered Hommage as their was less rotten raspberries and cherries added a nice twist. I really had a hard time drinking my pour because of the funky raspberries in the aroma, something I don’t really appreciate.

Bottle at private tasting. This is way more sour than it was 2 years ago at the Sour & Bitter Festival. Aroma is raspberry and candy. Taste is raspberry, some balsamic vinegar, candy.

@ The Lets do a Chris O tasting. Pours pink and cloudy/hazy. Big (huge) raspberry nose with cherry coming through as well, it smells as it should sour but fresh. Funk sour (fruity sourness) straight away then you get a dry citrus finish, excellent beer thanks to Jan (Fonefan)

McNeillR (2168) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 18, 2014
Murky but vibrant melted plastic bucket red, soft lasting off white head. Nose is a bit disconnected for me - absolutely mesmerising lambic funk consistently whirling from many feet away but a little too much cheese corrupts this for me. Manifested Drei Font-age though, and zinging sticky Raspberry jam, but not enough to bury my face in.
Silky, predatory mouthfeel circling softly with before a massive tart pounce strung with out with steamed Balsamic Vingear. The sourness is incredible, expressive and cast iron without but there’s a rumbling sweetness like those foaming fizzy cherry cola bottles you ONLY get in Pick ’N Mix - unique and invigourating. Finish is slightly dry and dogged sheer clean linger whilst maintaining a resonating tartness - incredible balance. A memorable beer at any cost.

Bottle, Jan "That’s Why I’m #1 Craig" Fonefan via Craig "Master Wizard" Garvie"

allmyvinyl (9243) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 16, 2014
Bottle at Craig’s, thanks to fonefan. Pours hazy pink with a white head. Big sour raspberry nose, funky and jammy. Similar taste, lip-puckering sour, balancing out to a cleansing finish. Lovely.

BenH (3438) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 15, 2014
Bottle thanks to Jan the man fonefan. Pours cloudy pink with white head. Aroma is big and funky, 3f house character with a nice wack of raspberry jam. Similar taste, funky with raspberry jam. Dry and sour, tart, puckering. Delish

Martinus (4365) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - FEB 15, 2014
Slightly hazy reddish brown colour, white head. Aroma of raspberries, syrup, almond, earth, over-ripe raspberries, pips, horse blanket. Very sour flavour, fruity, citric acid, acetic, barnyard funk. Bone dry, no residual sugars. Sour finish, raspberry, malt vinegar. Great beer, very funky.
