SlackerMads (2019) - DENMARK - JAN 27, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2015 2011 bottle. Lively hazy/unclear red with a quickly diminishing pink head. Raspberries can be smelled at a distance. Flavour has lots of raspberries too, but also a whole gosh darn lot of other things going on. Sour cherries, light almonds, barnyard, light leather, oak. Medium body, medium sweet and sour, light dry. Long sour finish with raspberries. Lord have mercy!

maekchu (2632) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JAN 25, 2015
2001 vintage bottle. Big thanks to KL. Funky, dusty nose, very earthy, with berries, shoe polish, and a good modicum of horse blanket. Bright clear medium copper color. Very sharp initial, fermenting vegetables, fish flakes, and a persistent green olive strain from mid onwards. Very astringent, tongue-scraping mouthfeel. Varnish and vinegar, sour and powerful aroma and flavors. Takes a few sips for the palate to adjust to this one, but then wow! This vintage has held up so well.

neongolden (729) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 20, 2015
(On tap @ Akkurat, Jan 4 2015) Pours deep reddish pink with a small pale pink head. Nice fresh raspberry forward, lactic, big wet hay for a fruit lambic, slight fresh cheese, bit herbal, nice. Flavour is tart raspberry juice, lactic with tart lemon and even orange peel, and a little dried grass in the bitter, softly acidic finish. The funk is more restrained in the mouth. Light with active carb. Really nice framboise! I almost wonder if this one is even better in bottle with more funk coming through on the palate. Either way it’s a good deal better than Gambrinus, just as one would expect.

Bouteille 750mL. Vintage 2011. Rouge-rose trouble, collet de mousse blanche. Nez tout en subtilité: framboise et vinaigre de vin rouge. Bouche légèrement tartrique, légèrement vinaigrée; framboises et un peu de bois. Un certain côté crémeux en bouche. Bonne.

Franckg (396) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 31, 2014
Vintage 2013, dégusté après 1 an.

Odeur de framboise et de lambics. Le goût est légèrement acidulé avec une belle grosse poche de framboises. L’amertume est longue et fruitée. Dans les meilleures bières de Cantillon

andrew_drinks (233) - Luxembourg, LUXEMBOURG - DEC 25, 2014
Bottle from Beermoth, 2011 Vintage, thanks Emma! Ruby red, gentle carbonation, bright as a button. Pure raspberry jam aroma, fresh fruit purée, some acidity in evidence. Tart jammy raspberry, fruit seeds, lemon, intense sourness, then finishes like grinding raspberry pips between your teeth. Fantastic.

czar (5388) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 22, 2014
pours unclear bright red-pink with a very nice reviving pinkish head leaving nice lacing. tons of fresh raspberries, their seeds and leaves, red grapes and their astringency, zinfandel vinousness, raspberry vinaigrette - ponctuated by assertive and almost puckering acetic notes, appreciable level of funk although the fruit takes most of the place, shy but present oakiness, grass. bright carbonation,light body, grassy-spicy and sour citric-acetic finish. very nice raspberry but unfortunately almost crazy sour.

Bottle, thanks guys for sharing! Ruby red pour with a discreet pinkish head. Nose has raspberry jam with some light funk. Taste is jammy with raspberries, vanilla and some discreet funk. Tasty stuff!
