Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - MAY 24, 2004
1986 Vintage, sampled May 2004
Orangey-amber colour. Funky aroma - stinky cheese, raspberry and earth. So well-integrated you can’t help nosing the beer over and over again. Slight acetic hint to the big acid body. Hugely complex - raspberries, nuts, leather and oak. Extremely well-balanced. Some sips you’re drinking a collection of great flavours, other sips you’re drinking just one great flavour. Drinking this is like peeling back layers of time as the beer slowly reveals itself. Outstanding.

Enjoyit (3447) - 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 (1824) - 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.

MichaelAwesome (3572) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - MAY 29, 2014
Sehr interessantes Lambic, das ebenso speziell ist. Sauer ist es natuerlich, aber auch mit leichten suessen Momenten. Vom Aroma her himbeerig, aber Kohl spielt ebenfalls eine grosse Rolle. Klasse Bier, das jedoch wirklich sehr heftig daherkommt und sichelich nicht jedermanns Geschmack trifft.

McTapps (3574) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAY 29, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a deep ruby-brown colour with smooth body and low head. Wonderful aroma of fresh but green raspberries and leaves. Taste of raspberries, strawberries, freshness, acid, raspberry vinegar and wine. Sour finish with a big raspberry field in mind. Wonderful lambic.

Lothore (542) - California, USA - MAY 23, 2014
A- pours raspberry red with little to no head S- huge raspberry notes, wheat, strawberry. This beer is incredibly strong smelling upon opening and you don’t even have to put your nose in the glass to get a bouquet of raspberry. T- wheat, raspberry, slightly grassy, very muted. Huge let down from the nose. M- medium bodied with light carbonation. D- a decent beer with an amazing nose. I enjoyed it.

Bottles - pours a murky red. Lots of raspberries in the nose with some barnyard funk. Very tart, nice sour raspberry taste plus some good old funk. Awesome beer!!!

TheJvd (786) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 6, 2014
Sample from bottle @ Zeebra II. Pous hazy reddish with a ring white head. Aroma has quite some barnyard and funk, quite typical 3F aroma, with some faint raspberry sweetness and fruitiness. Taste has a nice balance between the sourness and the fruitiness, although the raspberry is not very prominent. Over medium sour with a dry finish. Medium body and carbo. Quite nice, but probably better when it was fresh.

caesar (4897) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 4, 2014
Bottled @ Zeebra #2, tick. Hazy pink color, short head. Aroma of very fruity raspberry, tart. Quite sour in taste, quite fruity. Lovely framboos, but the difference with some other Frambozenlambics, like for example de Cam, is not as big as the difference in rating does expect. Very nice stuff, but a bit overrated imo.
