Aethien (28) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 29, 2013
Gorgeous bright red colour, brighter than any other beer I’ve seen. Sour funk, flowers and raspberries in the nose, very fresh. Smell goes along the same lines but much more impressive and complex with a big burst of raspberry at the front and more flavours coming through as it warms up with a subtle wine like complexity. Absolutely brilliant.

I was able to enjoy this one at Redlight Redlight. Vintage was 2010 and bottled in 2013. This pours out a bright red with a light pink head. It has a nice sour funk in the nose. The flavor is tart and not overwhelming syrupy from the raspberries like you see with most framboise beers.

Damico (2553) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Sticker says 2010 and cork says 13. Pours bright cranberry red with a bit grayish pink head. Aroma brings subtle but pleasant tart and big fresh berry fruit. Flavor is on a whole different level, super fresh raspberries with subtle puckering being so fresh. Carbonation is right on, full body, and enhances the delicious fresh fruit raspberries. It is so smooth and fresh.

Habanero (2543) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - DEC 21, 2013
Pours hazy orange with a small pink head. Aroma of raspberry and wood notes. Dry, tart flavor that ends up solid sour and with bitter notes. Medium bodied, watery text. and soft carb. An excellen, crispt fruit lambic.

vintage 2009 (per sticker, doesn’t have the label, per Jean’s personal attention to the bottle), bottled 2012 per cork. Thanks to Brandon and Emily for bringing this out from Paris! Pours a simply gorgeous razzy red. Really lovely cherry blossom caps this one. Nose carries more funk than I’d anticipated, really the earthy aspect of Cantillon’s arsenal. The raspberries come through acidic and sharp with hints of vinous shreds. Flavor carries surprising balance. The tartness and buxelles funk are soo well balanced with generous bounties of raspberries. The whole thing comes together and reminds me of a freshly picked raspberry during the high sun of an August day mixed with the grit of a solid days hike. A little full bodied with reserved carbonation accentuated the generous fruit endowment for the beer. Finish made me want another sip of the beer, and a gulp of ice cold water. Really a step up from the Rose, and I appreciate the attention to detail here. Serving type: bottle 06-12-2012

Notes from backlog. A great acidity, more sour than Rose de Gambrinus but less raspberry flavors..

Smurf2055 (1399) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 15, 2013
2010 Pours clear ruby, lighter than kriek, large pink, quickly dissipating head. Smell puckering sour raspberry. Fruity. Mouth watering raspberry. Funky and slightly musty. Bit sweet. Taste huge tartness up front, less fruit than Rose de Gambrinus but more complex, more oak, dryer. Lighter bodied, refreshing. Gorgeous beer.

Vestergaard (300) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - NOV 15, 2013
Bought at the brewery this summer. Pours red with a pink head. Smell is all about raspberries. Sour though. Taste is almost just like raspberry juice. Extremely fresh and fizzy. Really a successful framboise! This in a hot summerday would be incredible!
