hackobock (2009) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 14, 2014
August 3, 2014. Bottle, vintage 2011 at Grote Dorst. Pours hazy amber/red with a small pink head. Aroma is lots of tart wild raspberries, olive pits, oak, grass. Taste is medium tart and light sweet raspberries up front, finish is very dry with lasting tart fruitiness and woody note. Oily texture, light/medium bodied, soft carbonation.

ClubGonzo (4497) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 5, 2014
Bottle. No. 4000, hurray! :-) Pours a deep pink body with medium white head. Nose is intense raspberry tones, mild basement funk, vanilla, sweet strawberry-like jam tones, lemon, hints of apple vinegar, cinnamon and grass, tart raspberries, lemon, citric peel, floral grassy hints. Taste is extreme lemony funky raspberry tones, mellow red fruits, rosehips, hints of citric peel and wet leaves. Complex and utterly awesome. Hard to put into words, worthy of a "round" rating. :-) Cheers to all the Ratebeer people who have made my journey into beer so worthwhile. :-)

bottle shared by tom10101, many thanks bro! pours cloudy, almost murky purple-red with a small slightly creamy off-white-reddish head showing some retention and lacing. obvious raspberries - their seeds and leaves, berry jam, currants, melons, pepper, light and soft acidity - complexity is at its summum - funk-plenty, cheese, citric acid from unripened raspberries. moderately low carbonation, light body, very dry, woodsy astringent and grassy finish. excellent!

Huge thanks to tom10101 for sharing this 2011 gem! Pours an unclear reddish brown with a small white head that leaves nice lacing patterns. Nose is of raspberry preserve and funky blue cheese. Taste is pretty acidic, citric and fruity. Just like if you mixed framboises with lemon juice. Body is light, carbonation low to medium and lacking some brightness maybe, vinous. Overall a really nice framboise, glad to have been able to try it!

Alengrin (2885) - BELGIUM - AUG 13, 2014
Young lambic with actual raspberries cultivated in Belgium. Tasted as old beer at 5 years of age. Soft, sweetish but entirely genuine fruitiness nicely draped over a very complex, funky, woody, vinous, acid lambic character; the fruit still tasted relatively fresh, though I should definitely re-rate this as a young beer when it still has a more vivid, ’living’ raspberry fruitiness.

Enjoyit (3523) - Vadum, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2014
Gazy red of color with a weak white head. An aroma of red berries, barn, farm, horseback, raspberries and sour. A flavor of red berries, raspberries, sour and dry.

wedgie9 (2501) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 29, 2014
2011 Vintage Tasted on 2/8/14 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle at the RBWG Grand Tasting, big thanks to jackl for allowing me to finally taste this white whale. Pours cloudy dark red with an average off-white head that leaves a thin collar of lace. The nose is super intense sour raspberry with tons of signature 3F funk, and an intensity that almost reminds me of briny black olive. The flavor is not quite as sour as I expected with most of the sourness coming from the raspberry, but very funky and complex with some barrel treatment, and just a light hint of that olive up front. The body is medium with some light tannin, lively, nearly sparkling, carbonation, and a long complex raspberry, sour, and barrel treatment finish.
