4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Provided by Matt for my impromptu birthday tasting. Thanks a bunch for helping me knock out the Loons I haven’t ticked yet. Pours a deep red almost brown in color with a fingers worth of tight light pink head. Very good head retention. Really nice bright jammy raspberry in the nose, it smells absolutely incredible. Reminds me of a young Hommage. Flavor is tart raspberry, with a little lemon, but it’s still mostly all raspberry. Light mouthfeel, good carbonation, moderate acidity, and a long tart finish. I like this beer more and more everytime I have it. I still think I prefer Lou Pepe Kriek in terms of Lou Pepe’s, but this is light years ahead of Rose.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle: 2010 sticker. Bloody red body with crimson & copper tints; slightly lavender tinted head on top, pretty foamy but quick to settle to a lazy collar. Aroma of juicy raspberry, lacto lemon notes, funky wood, signature Cantillon critters, mild barnyard, lightly floral perfume, & a huge raspberry jam punch towards the finish. Juicy, jammy raspberry explosion on the palate. Fruity, tart, sour, & funky with a good bit of wood, lacto yeast, horsey funk, & mild sweat. Light acidity, some lemon flesh, & a sharp, finishing sourness. Puckering. A touch of yogurt in the back-end, finishing dry with lingering raspberry skins & soured wood. Insanely delicious beer.

2010 sticker. Ruby red pour. Sour. Sour and raspberry. Slight acidic. Nice and balanced. Good stuff. I think this was my favorite of the cantillon tasting.

"As I’d hoped, does for Framboise what the same year Lou Pepe did for Kriek. In short, one of the best, if not the best raspberry beer I’ve had (though it costs several times as much as New Glarus, it’s main rival). beautiful ruby red pour w pink head. quite the gusher (the beer level actually lowered as the head rose for several minutes after a gentle pour). wonderful full raspberry farm aroma. flavor equal measures sour and fruit. near perfect. too steep to get often, but i will revisit if i can."

Smell was raspberries and maybe a tad bit of plastic. Sour raspberry taste that struck a great balance between the fruit and the sourness.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Traditionally made framboise with fresh red raspberries; intended for export. Has all the barnyard funkiness and complexity of any of Cantillon’s best products; very sec, if not acid, but extremely clever balance between this ’neige’ lambic sourness and a ton of fresh, soft, gentle fruits; very long and dry finish, yet light on the tongue. Clearly one of the great masterpieces in lambic world, though I liked the kriek and the geuze in this series even better.
