Bottle shared with GT2 at RBWG, thanks! Pours a hazy reddish brown with bubbly red head and light lacing. Aroma of tart raspberries, but not too crazy or overpowering. Taste is definitely sour, but not off-putting. Great stuff.

2/23/13. 750mL bottle thanks to GT2 during RBWG! Nice red pour with a frothy pink head. Really awesome tart aroma with raspberry, fruitness, acidity, and maybe a touch of wood. Tart but balanced flavor with plenty of raspberry, sour, and a hint of wood to balance it out. This stuff was awesome and also my wife’s favorite of the entire weekend.

Fruit is obvious, but not really dominant. Strongly sour, but pleasant. Less sugary than some.

rbwg shared by GT2. AROMA IS I DONT KNOW WHY THIS IS ALL CAPS I CANT TURN IT OFF. STUPID BOOST MOBILE PHONE. ITS LIKE RASPBERRY JAM WITH A BIG SOUR KICK IN THE JUNK AT THE END. THE JAM ASPECT IS COOL. FLAVOR IS LESS JAM AND LESS SOUR, NOT AS COOL. MORE DRY SOUR THAT NOSE MAKES ME THINK. COOL STUFF BUT NO NUT BUSTER.

Bottle, 2011 release, 02/17/2013. Thanks to Jeffo. Pours reddish brown, opaque, almost no head but instead a hazy off-white foam on the surface and ringing the glass, light lacing. Soft aroma of raspberry yogurt, jam, a peculiar dusty mustiness, rich barnyard funk, light leather. Taste is incredibly well-balanced and round, fruity raspberry jam. seedy offset and cut with nice layers of funk, dry finish with a touch of oak. Medium light body, supremely drinkable. Tasted after de Cam Framboise and Lou Pepe Framboise, this was the clear standout, avoiding the excesses of both with elegant balance. A pleasure.

thome50 (1233) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Bottle from the 2011 release. Tasted at Matty and Marks pub in NE Minneapolis last Fall. (Pretty good bottle list) Pours a clear, deep red with no head. Flat as a female teen gymnast. Aroma was raspberry, cranberry sweetness, slight lactic sour aroma and some very, very mild cheese. Taste was raspberry forward but the funk was not that apparent which could have done a lot for this beer. The lack of carbonation was also disappointing. Would give this a try again in a few years but the price is probably not worth it.

KickInChalice (860) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 29, 2013
Poured from a 750 mL caged and corked bottle into a tulip. 2011 vintage. From notes. Moderately bright, the raspberry brown color has a wispy, off-white cap. This is not heavily carbonated. The nose is full of juicy ripe raspberries, with a very sour aroma overall. The fruit is just explosive; it smells mostly lactic in nature, and there is not much funk in the nose, probably due to the young age of the beer. With the first sip my tongue is greeted with the soft, sweetness of ripe summer raspberries. With each passing millisecond, though, the flavor becomes more and more sour, peaking right at the end of the sip. The fruit clearly dominates the flavor, ahead of the funky lambic notes. The sour notes are mostly lactic tartness, although there is some acetic vinegar to it as well. The early sweetness creates a slightly fuller than medium body, but the light bubbly carbonation and the sour acidity as the sip progresses drag the body to the middle of the spectrum in terms of lambics. The lactic acidity and light tannins create a dry sensation as well. This is simply an incredible raspberry sour, which I have soft spot for anyway. With more time in the bottle, I am sure some of the fruit will give way to more of the trademark Drie Fonteinen funk. It will be tough for it to improve on how much I like it now, but it should mellow out for sure.
