UPDATED: MAR 14, 2016 Potentielt eneste seriøse rating. Batch #2 Fantatisk hindbær og kirsebær i næsen, latterligt skarpt! Røde bær og velvære til væsken rammer helt bagerst i oropharynx. Aldrig har mine smagsløg været så overrasket og efterfølgende komatøse!

Het Aroma en de geur van dit bier geeft mij altijd een enorm hoge verwachting, de smaak kan dit helaas niet waarmaken. Ik vind de smaak niet uitgesproken genoeg.

Transparent red colour. Pinkish head. Rich and wonderful aroma of raspberries. Raspberries also dominate in first taste. Sourness, hints of vinegar in the middle. Deep raspberry taste. Hints of cherries. Sour finish. Berries in the aftertaste. Really well balanced, light and very enjoyable lambic. Masterclass.

2015 Vintage. Consumed JAN/2016. AROMA: As with most there is a very citric sharp smell along with fresh berries and obvious Brett. APPEARANCE: Lovely deep pink. Light pinkish head which dissapates into a them ring. Carbonation looks fairly flat. TASTE: Wild berries, jam, Bretty funk. PALATE: Syrupy, long lasting, moreish, very low carbonation. OVERALL: As with Framboos, I think these beers are good to try and I know with thanks to these beers what my limits are. Basically a Lou Pepe Framboise for half the price is a better beer IMO. It’s too much for my taste. Yes it is extreme and lovely but just too much.

750ml Bottle at Moeder Lambic Fontainas, 23rd February 16, shared with myself :) pours a beautiful deep pink, red, like a pink champagne. Aroma is very complex, lots of barnyard funk, raspberry bushes, cherry, soaked wood, damp cellar. Taste is raspberry, funk, oak, tart cherry on the finish. Sweet and sour, a joy and so easy to drink. Mouth feel has just the right amount of tickle to agitate the aroma and flavours. Very elegant and complex lambic, excellent.

750 mL bottle shared with Gus and ebone1988. This baby has been on the list for a while and we finally pulled the trigger. The pour is a beautiful ruby color, foggy, with a nice white head that falls to a thick collar with no lace. The aroma is great. There is a nice sour raspberry and a tart sour cherry. It's tart and crisp and everything I want it to be. The flavor is unbelievable. The cherry and raspberry meld together so well. It's all kinds of sexual. The tart sourness and crispness of both fruits is amazing. The mouth feel is fantastic. Light and crisp with a beautiful bubbly carbonation and a lingering raspberry cherry. It's magnificent. Oh man. This is making a charge for best sour I've ever had. Damn. Amazing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

#800. Bottle shared with koleminer20 and Gus because they’re fucking awesome. Aroma is cherry and raspberry, sour, skins, funk, so funky. Appearance is red, hazy, off white head. Taste is wonderful. Raspberry and cherry, sour, skins from both, funk, really really good. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, crisp carbonation, wonderful raspberry and cherry skin aftertaste. Overall, this is one of the best sours I’ve ever had.

Like Framboos, looks like freshly poured sangria; somewhere between dark pink and plum, with some frothy pink head at first. Medium body, nicely carbonated. On the nose, the funky barnyard smells alternate with jammy fruit. Cherry sits at the front of the taste, followed by raspberry and wine vinegar. Then, white wine fruits - citrus, light peach, gooseberry and so on. Dry finish. Possibly my favourite beer of this type, but these really occupy a strange place between beer, wine and fruit juice. Crazy stuff.
