4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2006 VINTAGE 1986, Bouteille, 75 cL. Couleur rouge lumineuse sous une adéquate mousse rose. Parfums absolument incroyable piquant notre intérêt pour les voyages à travers le temps. Pleinement madérisé, le fruit est toujours présent mais confère davantage l’impression de noyau plutôt que de chaire. Pur nectar en bouche, mielleux, douceur sucrée sous une acidité adoucie à travers des années de garde. Les saveurs de ce divins nectars restent en nous pour l’éternité. Délirium Café, Voyage Europe Avril 2005. Merci Joël pécheur!

Dark reddish brown with a light violet bubbly foam. Fresh natural aroma of raspberries, lingonberries and wet grass. Well-balanced flavour of rasåberries, linginberries and wood. Fruity and a bit tart aftertaste of lingonberries and grass. Quite good "framboise".

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Aroma is mostly of tart raspberries with just a touch of sweetness. Slight vinegar presence is also in the aroma. Pours a slightly hazy orangish-red with a minimal white head that is pretty much just a ring with a few bubble in the middle. Flavor is moslty sweet raspberry. Only a hint of tartness in the finish and aftertaste. A very light watery vinegar flavor hides in the background. A lambic that falls in line with soda-like lambics rather than the funky sour lambics. It is good and I like it, but not what your looking for if you want a hardcore lambic.

4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 18/20
Definitely smell the rasberries. Reddish color. Taste is tart, sweet rasberry. Not too sweet like most framboise made from syrups, this is made with real fruit and aged in oak. Can get it at Redlight Redlight in Winter Park.

Ruby amber red with a decent, short lived head. Aroma is funky raspberries with some eartiness. Taste is dry to start and picks up a bit with the tart berries. Finish is clean and this stuff is very drinkable. Thanks Brad for sharing this bottle.
