Slightly hazy, pinkish red beer with a small pink head. Sour and fruity raspberry aroma with a little hint of yeast/dairy. Horseblanket and regular geuze- aroma’s. Taste is actually the same: sharp sour, fruity, dry. One of the most overhyped beers if you ask me, not worth the high prices they ask for it.

Sampled a 2010 bottle @ Zeebra 2014. After several people highly recommended it, I shared a sample with Thijs (cause the beer was very expensive). Since I don’t like sours this beer was a disappointment. It was the sourest beer I ever drank (more sour than for example hommage and ypres). The fluid yoghurt taste is very dominating, really grabs you. Disliked it.

Abijen (1394) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - MAY 3, 2014
Pours an orange red slightly unclear beer with a good white head. Smells lots of framboise, medium sour, limonade. Tastes framboise, medium sour, bit tarted with a nice little sweet finish. Average carbo, thin body and a watery texture.

Bosbouw (1124) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - MAY 3, 2014
Heldere oranje rode kleur met een goede iets paarse kraag. Ruikt fruitig, zuur,ccassis. Smaakt zurig, fris. Goede fruitige smaak.

BoBoChamp (5358) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAY 1, 2014
75cl, Vintage 2011, at 6%Vol, exclusive brew, with raspberries, thx alot to René!, very complex sour fruit brew, fruity/sour and slightly woody, balanced, cloudy, small head, very good brew, ’Awesome smelling beer, yet sadly doesn’t have the very delicate taste of Hommage...’

Luk_ (91) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 27, 2014
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.

750ml bottle. Pours a nice pinkish color. Aroma is raspberries, funk and spice. Flavor is funky raspberry, slight oxidation, dry and sour.

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.

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 10, 2014
@ 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 (1093) - 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"
