2014. Pour is lightly hazed dark ruby red with no head. Nose is light mineral, bright fleshy raspberry, very jammy, and moderate acidity. Flavor is super strong raspberry, very fleshy and ripe, not as much acidity, light mineral, hint of bitterness, a touch of sourness, full bodied, no carb.

2014 bottle. Red pour. Sweet raspberry nose with hints of barnyard funk. Quite still, very little carbonation. Lots of raspberry, dry and tart. Not overwhelmingly sour. Very nicely done.

Benzai (11338) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 3, 2015
Sampled from bottle @ RBBSG 2015. Huge thanks to Martinus for sharing this!! Red color, virtually no head. Aroma is red fruit, raspberry. Taste is sour, raspberry. Hmm basically that’s it. Pretty to very sour and raspberry, red fruit sourness. I’m quite disappointed actually. Very happy to taste it though.

tmoreau (3144) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 24, 2015
Shared 750 ml. bottle poured to snifters showing a cloudy, copper color, with a modest, bubbly, soft white layer of foam that quickly reduced to a very light film, and little to no lacing. The nose was raspberry, with a touch of woodiness, some bretty funk. and a faint hint of cookie. The taste was dry, and ultra tart raspberry, retained a bit of the earthiness, showed low effervescence, but seemed fuller than light bodied due to the intensity of the flavor notes. Very flavorful, with amped pucker power! Rare but pricey investment.

ctipping (539) - Florida, USA - JUL 22, 2015
Originally reviewed 5/18/2014. 750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. 2011 bottle. Hazy, kinda dull red. White head. A little leggy. Funky. Strong raspberry, but it doesn’t smell jammy or sweet like Hommage. Low acidity. Taste is legitimately jammy. Still not a sweet raspberry. Lemony sourness, more than the nose implies. Funk lingers in the back end. Tart raspberry also lingers. Medium light body. Well carbonated. Significantly more sour than Hommage. Totally different representation of raspberries.

4/VII/15 - 75cl bottle @ RBBSG IV - BB: n/a, bottled: 18/VI/14 (2015-856) Thanks to Tinus for sharing the bottle!

Bit hazy amber to rust brown beer, small head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: lots and lots of raspberries, some chlorine (as in most fruit sours), funky, lambic, sourish. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: very tart, sourish, fruity, raspberries, hint of vinegar, bit funky. Aftertaste: mouth puckering tartness, lemony, some chlorine, vinegar, raspberries.

Prufrockstar (1642) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 14, 2015
Yet another amazing bottle shared by the ever-generous Diceman. Every time I add another beer to the "I will never get to drink that" list, Dice seems to show up and prove me wrong. I owe you, dude! Anyway ... Ruby red pour, reasonably clear with no head and almost completely still. Sexy fruity, funky, feety aroma. Tastes like condensed fruit puree + funk -- sweet and tart in all kinds of nice ways. Palate is the only weakness -- syrupy texture, medium body, and dead flat. Overall: great aroma, taste, and overall, would never turn down a glass of this.

Dégustée au RBBSG 2015. Cheers all! Il est encore très tôt dans la journée et nous avons déjà beaucoup dégusté. Quoi de mieux qu’une Framboos pour se rincer le mange-patates! Couleur pourpre, liquide trouble aucune effervescence, on pourrait croire à un verre de punch tant les bulles sont absentes. Peu attirante en terme de bière à mon avis. Nez de framboises délicates où je ne décèle presque aucune acidité, que le parfum du fruit. C’est réellement un nez de framboises bien mûres sans une pointe de sucre ni ce côté sûrette. Il est difficile d’isoler l’arôme pur de la framboise de la sorte! Magnifique! Bien sûr, la framboise est ce qui ressort en bouche et avec la même délicatesse qu’au nez, mais une irritation se fait rapidement sentir au fond de ma gorge. Cet aspect est loin d’être plaisant. Ceci dit, tout le reste est si magnifique qu’il est difficile de se plaindre! Très courte en bouche, parfaite par temps chauds, cette bière est parfaite sur la terrasse. À peine la bouteille terminée, ça suffit, on ouvre un BarleyWine BA!

Hazy dark red. Nose is very jammy, raspberries, herbal. Taste is jammy raspberries, very tart, yogurt. Full mouthfeel, especially for the style.

Bule (1399) - California, USA - JUL 4, 2015
2014 vintage. 750ml bottle pours a pale red color with very low carbonation. Flavors developed as it had had se time to breathe. Mild raspberry flavor and nice sour balance. Last pour from the bottle was more hazy and complex in flavor.
