HUGE thanks to xpimptastikx for bringing this beer to our impromptu/epic tasting last night. 750ml corked & caged bottle into a Ranger Creek tulip. Hommage pours with a rosy, violet-amber hue studded with a fine yeasty haze. A pink, Valentine’s day head retains surprisingly well. Gorgeous beer! Sadly, the aroma has not held up to age as well as the appearance. Big phenolic notes greet the nose alongside a leathery, cheesy, funky armpit presence. Cooked asparagus and green olives were suggested, and I agree. However, sniff past the pickled funkiness and there are some nice acetic berry tones lurking beneath. All is forgiven upon the first sip. This Lambic is heavenly in flavor, with a super tart lactic punch to the sides of the tongue offset by a decadent, funky raspberry jam note in the middle. Mouthfeel is dry, tart, and refreshing with a perfect carbonation level. Overall, an amazing beer; I am grateful that I got the opportunity to try Hommage. It’s a shame the nose hadn’t held up, but the deliciousness more than makes up for that fact. Thanks again Michael!

New batch 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)

mverity (263) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 3, 2014
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.

ChinoSkillzian (152) - The Hills, California, USA - JUL 3, 2014
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.

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

VsXsV (2143) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JUN 29, 2014
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.

vyvvy (3876) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Pours purple-ish with a pink head. The aroma has tart cherries, lush raspberries, oak, sourness, wild buggines and light vinegar. It has a smooth crisp body that has soft gentle carbonation. The flavor starts out with rounded fruit and sourness. There is a bit of creaminess to the taste that isn’t in most lambics. The fruit has a big lushness to it and has aspects of raspberries, cherries and other berries. The finis has some vinegar notes and lactic sourness. Nice lambic.

Shared at the SARA anniversary party. A- nice cloudy red with light rusty and rosy head. No lacing S- musty and dirty funk with raspberries and bing cherries offer up a pleasant base that is oddly joined by nylon, bell pepper, urinal cake, more muddled berries, white pepper, wood and Chessmen shortbread cookies. M- light to medium sticky body with a medium acetic palate with good carbonation. T- good, but not exactly living up to the hype. Sour cherries, salt and lemons are strong up front. Mid palate is raspberries, grass, and vinegar. End is long and tart with lemon juice, grapefruit, sour cream and extra sharp cheddar funk wrapping it up.

Ibrew2or3 (6767) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Pours murky with a deep amber colored body that is nuanced by rosy red hues and supports a thin white to slightly pinkish head. The aroma offers up berry notes mixed with soured fruit, slight vinegar and yeastiness along with an inviting undercurrent of earthy basement funk. The taste has thick berry richness that intercedes amid a river of sourness and slight yet slippery soft vinegar notes. Behind the big flavors lurks an all too subtle funky basement earthiness that does a good job pulling this together. In there as well is a flash of spicy wood every now and then. Cool brew with a nice balance and depth and I just love funky messed up yummy earthy barnyard goodness and this has some.

Pours a reddish pink with no lacing. The aroma is predominantly bright cherry notes followed by raspberry and vinegar. Opens up to more and more raspberry.Moderate tartness and acidity.

Drunk from 75cl bottle bought at Malting Pot, Brussels. A fantastic tart, sharp, raspberry lambic beer. A real classic. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
