4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear and effervescent reddish copper color, briefly topped by a quarter inch of white foam. This reduces to a ring in short order. Tart fruity and slightly cheesey aroma.
Light fresh raspberry and strawberry flavor sits on top of a tart and slightly funky brew. The finish is quite tart a lemony, with a very mild herbal hop presence. Tart acidic raspberry lingers in the aftertaste. Medium body and gentle carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2007 Palatable enjoyable but no where as good as their kriek and nowhere close to the best Framboise that I have had from Drie Fountaine. Page 65 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide and only 199 Classic brews to go.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark red-brown, not very nice to look at. Raspberry aroma; some sweetness there. Taste is a curious woody mixture of sweetness, sourness and bitterness with a faint aftertaste of raspberry jam. Like eating unripe fruit. Would have liked a little more sourness to be honest.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 24, 2006 This Framboise is based on the oude gueuze. Much to my surprise, it turned out less sour than expected. The beer shows a nice pearly head which disappears rather fast. When I tasted it, it showed some sourness with a dry aftertaste. A good beer, but not exceptional.

2004 bottle. This red/brown lambic ale poured with a pinkish head. The flavor was initially sweet with a bit of carbonation, but turned to a tart finish. The raspberry flavor is well integrated.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle dated 01-09-2008 served in a Lindemans glass. Rose-tea in color with a tiny amount of lace that quickly disseminates. Nose of sweet raspberries and a smidge of sour funk. Starts sharply tart, then sour effervescent horsiness envelops the tongue, followed by a surprisingly dry, lingering sour finish with a touch of astringency.
