4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2012 Brought this to our mini Sunday whale tasting. Sampled side by side with the newest vintage of Framboos. Pours a murky purple, brownish red with little head formation on the pours. It’s rather "dirty" looking in comparison to Framboos. Nose is surprisingly full of raspberry still, some very light vinegar, and slightly phenolic. Raspberries are prominent in the flavor as well, with a little bit of plastic peaking through as well. There is less funk than usual 3F of this vintage, but I am actually ok with it considering how much fruit is still showing. Moderate mouthfeel, heavy acidity, light carbonation, and a long finish. I think a lot of the slack this beer gets is unwarranted. It holds up very well to Framboos and despite having some plastic character to it, it doesn’t detract much from the beer. It’s an incredibly good lambic and one I look forward to having again.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Edmund Edmunds. Pours a nice, light, hazy red/pink/cherry. Aroma is sour cherry, funk, really impressive nose. Taste is equally impressive, absolutely delectable. Nice tartness, not too much, fucking awsome. Wish I knew more beer words for beers like this.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle cracked by my nuggah Barry...been wanting to try this one for awhile now, thanks for sharing dude. New batch pours pinkish-red with red tinted white head and lacing. Smells like cherry, old strawberry and veggies, medicinals, wet wood, funk and some bandaid like chemcials. This is insanely disappointing and from what others have told me nowhere near as good as the original batch. Medium bodied with lots of carbonation. This Hommage was surprisingly not good for 3 font or any real lambic.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours murky ruby, clamato color, finger light pink head.
Smell funky bretty, cherry up front, raspberry tail
Taste smooth vanilla, fruit, big cherry tail
Well balanced, light
Solid beer, but I think I like their regular line better (or as much)

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep, reddish purple like the color of cherries. An inch of pink infused cream colored head that holds pretty well. Head remains at the surface and a thick collar. Fair legs, and poor lacing. Aroma is a ton of cherry and an odd funk. Smells almost like cherry cough medicine. Taste is lightly tart, rich raspberry more than cherry flavor, and an oakiness. Medium body and high carbonation, with a fruit-like stickiness to the mouthfeel. Great beer, but the slight cough syrup-like quality is off putting in the aroma and flavor.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Slammed like a half bottle of this at Woodshop a few years back. Pours a hazy dark pink color with pink head. The nose is sour lemon-lime, raspberry yogurt, cherry skin, baked red fruits, and acid. Bright, dry palate with crazy raspberry flavors layered with oak, citric acid, fruit seed/skin tannin, quenching like a good summer drink.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Very disappointed here. Decent aroma, nice color. They flavor was so unbearable. So much band aid, burnt rubber, medicinal... I couldn’t finish more than a few ounces

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at Grote Dorst. 2007 vintage. Light hazy deep red liquid with small to medium off-white head. Aroma of lemon, cherries, raspberries, some light acetic acid, apple skin and classic 3F funk. Taste is very dry and medium to high sour with notes of cherries, almonds, lemon, raspberries and apple skin. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Really good and quite different from Framboos.
