Thanks to an uber generous trading partner for this one! Shared @ Woodshed 2.0! Vibrant almost luminescent plum flesh color with a small ivory cap that quickly dissipates into a wisp and a ring. Bright, pungent aroma of unripened and ripened raspberries, lemon zest, and earthy funk. The fruit is incredibly forward in the nose, significantly more so than the flavor. Musty, dusty, green fruit, berry, and barnyard. Tart, sour, and puckering but not eye-crossingly so. A real treat I never thought Iíd experience!

First, a huge huge thanks to the folks that shared this with me, you guys really are fucking awesome. Iíve been going back and forth on whether I should rate this. I sampled several sips from the glasses of more than one friend. But in total, I definitely had enough to give it a fair shake. Pours deep reddish amber, with an off white head. Big and raspberry jammy, especially in the nose. Light cheesy funky notes, hint of oak, and relatively now acidity. Damn good.

Bottle @ S&B#2. Pours cloudy red with a frothy pink minimal head. Aroma is complex and at the same time very fresh and forward fruity with raspberry and some barnyard, acetic/vinegar, wheat, straw. Taste is light+ sweet, bitter and medium tart. Body is light+, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. Finish is fruity, initially sweet but ends dry. Not nearly as fruity as at S&B a year ago. Canít wait to see how this ages.

UPDATED: MAY 3, 2013 2011. Jammy fruit galore! A touch of cheese and yeast amidst the berries. Taste is more sour than my last bottle was in August, but still needs time to develop. Mildly bittered yeast as it descends; finishes dry. Damn tasty, should age like a champ.

very sour. the raspberries are not there some much as in other framboos lambics (donít mean the sweetened ones). hoped for more but it didnít hit all the marks i was hoping for... the color looked a bit faded so it wasnít superbly looking.. over all a very nice beer, but as i said was hoping for more..

Bottle at Sour & Bitter #2, pours a pinkish ruby red with a small pink-tinged head. Aroma is very barnyardy for a fruit lambic, fragrant raspberries that are further back than the barnyard, and a little horse blanket. Extremely complex aromatics, unlike any other fruit lambic Iíve had. Aroma matches accordingly, bringing out barnyard notes upfront, followed immediately by the pungent raspberries which linger on and on. While the barnyard notes come out first, the raspberries take front and centre stage. Extremely flavourful and elegant, with a very dry and fruity mouthfeel. No acidity or really much tartness. Supreme stuff - worthy of its reputation. Absolutely phenomenal. A masterwork of lambic.

Nose was funky raspberry jam. Tastes similar to hommage only less funk, nose was funkier than the taste, flavor is incredibly smooth and well balanced. Slight sour blended well with the sweetness of fresh ripe berry

Bottle at a nameless place that shall remain nameless with Max, Ramy, GT & Whitney, Podey, Andy, Pearl, James, J-Dad, and maybe some others later. Pours a hazed and faintly murky ruby garnet amber with a medium sized white head that deflates quickly. Smells like straight up raspberry jam with some funk behind it. So many raspberry seeds! Medium bodied, tart and jammy, rather funky with lingering light acid. Not overly complex, just simple and well defined. Cheesy raspberry jam. Pretty impressive stuff.

hopdog (8796) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2013
750ml bottle. Poured a reddish tinted color with a smaller sized pinkish head. Raspberries, berries, some woodiness, and some funkiness. Some tartness in the finish ... just all around nice and drinkable.

Boltz with the share! Pours a hazy purple bred with a small white head. Aroma is acidic lemon raspberry seeds and fruit. Flavor is tart raspberry seeds lemons funk. Amazing.
