4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: APR 27, 2015 Bottle: 2011 vintage. Murky, crimson tinted copper with a brown & ruby tinted collar. Almost muddy. The lavender-khaki foam fades in seconds. Huge lemon & raspberry aroma, both incredibly jammy & acidic; full of sharp, seedy raspberry fruit skin, lemon rind, mild corky barnyard funk, earthy undertones, woody hay, & a touch of sweaty funk. Gushing & incredibly juicy rasperry flavor, sour as hell, backed with acidic lemon, wet barnyard hay, moldy cork, stone fruit, berry, faint vinegar, a touch of white wine, a wonderful finish of oak tannins, perfect sourness. Acidic without the burn, juicy & jammy without being to sweet. Dry. Incredible stuff.
Bottle: 2014 vintage. Surprisingly enough, even though this bottle was much fresher than the last, the raspberry character was actually lighter. Lots more yogurt, lacto, & straight up lemon flesh acidity right out of the gate. Body was a bit flat & oily, too, so many some time would help to develop a bit more carbonation which was much needed.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
15 cl pour from a 2011/2012 (donít remember when it is from) 75cl bottle thanks to a couple of nice guys from Drikkeriet at Fermentoren. Pours a deep, dark, semi-clear red with a small pink head. Aroma has lots of both tart raspberries and riper sweet, frozen, dirty raspberries. Deep vinous notes, almost like rosť or lambrusco.. well, not in a particularly bad way. Taste shows some more funky and leatherish fruits, and thus showing the aging. Very sour and dry, but with ripe raspberry sweetness. Got some of the almost metallic sourness that frozen strawberries sometimes have. Havenít had this fresh, but damn, the aging seems to suit this beer well! Crisp and fresh body, yet deep and tasty. Thrilled to have this!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2011 bottle. Deep raspberry nose, some unsweetened jam, green olives, leather. Very funky. Great level of sourness, a touch of yogurt, good fruit, leather, lemon. Unexpectedly deep orange-red and cloudy. Lovely balance, lots of barnyard feel, dusty. wildly complex and sourness is in check. Extremely savory, meaty, nor sweet or sour. Very drinkable. Great, and very interesting.

Aroma of raspberry, cranberry, wood dankness, and Flavor is so sour and puckery but never acidic, ultra tart raspberry, horse blanket, oak, jam and lemon rind. Medium to fuller body. Mouth watering and salivating with each sip. One of the best 3 Fonts Iíve tried. Ultra dry and insanely good lambic.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 75cl corked. 2011 vintage, 6% ABV. A pinkish reddish pale brownish beer with a small, white head. The aroma has lots of raspberry, some earthy notes, barnyard and leather and a lemony touch. Itís very dry on the palate, puckering, with a pleasant carbonation level.Medium to full body. Lemon juice, earthy notes and loads of raspberries in the flavor, with a lasting finish. Loads of raspberries in this one, in a matured way. Wonderfully palate cleansing. Was actually expecting more complexity, but itís sure nice, and the raspberry and cellar and funk are lovely. Would definitely like to repeat this in the future. 141024
