4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
0,75 l bottle kindly shared by Ole Anders on our train ride to Gvarv. Clear warm red body with a white rim. Nose most invitingly conveys the essence of freshly picked raspberries with a faint hint of vanilla. Fruit acids, grapefruit, raspberries and tannins in the mouth. Light to medium bodied. Well balanced and elegant. Perfection!

Bright pink translucent pour, pinkish white head. Nose is fresh raspberries and funk. Taste is fresh raspberries, tart berries, light funk but really all about the fruit. Body is very light.

@ Akkurat. A funky tart journey into flavors of cherries, raspberries and blackberries. Darker flavors from raspberries with the perfect funky touch and sourness.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle 2013 vintage. Beautiful red pour with pinkish head. Aroma is barnyard, must and cheese along with raspberries, blackberries and flowers. Highly fruity and aromatic with a decent amount of funk. Taste is an intense multilayered fieldberry bomb: intense raspberries, cherries, blackberries and strawberries. Rich and consistent palate with med-lively carbonation. I tend to appreciate more and more the Lou Pepe Framboise and Kriek I found at first too funky and sour.

Pours deep ruby into a tulip with moderate head retention and noticeable lacing. Huge aromas of our raspberry jam and cheese dominate the nose. This shows huge almost undrinkable acidity in older renditions (2003) and a more modest approach in later batches up to current release, which as of last sampling in late 2013 was showing a musty barnyard note and very little of the acidity the early 2000s batches exhibit. A solid offering from the LP series, perhaps right in the middle for me..

Super bitter and fruity. Like grapefruit juice. Pine needles and tart. Not a bad one for the style

Great framboise. Lots going on with the sour rich base and compliments and wrestles with the raspberry in a good way! Very balanced in the big richness of fruit and funk. I loved this brew

Bottle. Pours red, lots if head. Aroma if sour, fruits, sweetness, yum. Taste is the same. Fruity, tart, makes my nose hairs tingle, it makes me feel good. Want moar.
