Not sure how my description could possibly add anything to this beer. Pure raspberry; pure lambic goodness; a perfect beer in every possible way. Much as we aspire to the angelic order, so raspberries aspire to become one with the transcendent berry perfection that is Lou Pepe Framboise.

Bottiglia comprata su ilbeershop.it; dolcezza e morbidezza esagerate, acido moderatissimo, una bevanda fantastica, di un’eleganza superba.

Poured red, smells like the wonderful winery characteristics . Dark fruit aromas and flavor, with breads yeast popping up. Great wet oak in background. Some barnyard but mostly great crisp tartness.

Had many times, brewery and bottle. Pour a burgundy color with a quickly fading white head. Oak and funk and some rose character in aroma. Prickle tart initially and then some molasses sweetness. Continued tart and some sour raspberry. So complex.

From notes on 9/10/15. Was able to buy a 2012 Lou Pepe Framboise for on premise consumption only at Cantillon. Heck of a deal at 14 euro. Must say wow, this is easily the best Lambic/sour beer I’ve had. Big sweet berry smell. Had a huge barnyard aroma that I like too. Tons of tart delicious raspberry flavor. Just one freakin awesome beer.

A beer to celebrate Belgium’s national day. 75 cl bottle, labelled 2003 (though the cork states 2005!) . Beautiful orange -pink colour with an initially huge fine head that even has some pink tones in it. Aroma: intense raspberry and lemony lambik, wood, even a slight hint of cheese. When it comes to taste, wood and lemony lambik is far more pronounced, though raspberries start the ball. Wood takes over more and more towards the dry finish. Dry mouthfeel, medium to light body, foamy feel. Incredibly complex and refreshing beer. Fruit and wood, raspberry and lemony lambik, all in perfect harmony. I have a hard time deducting any points here.

Bottle from capones. Dark redish pour with almost not head but lots of carbondaltion on the glass. Aroma is of tart raspberriess and cherries. Taste is perfect sour raspberry with some oak or wook mixed in. I will def be making the trip back to capones to get the kriek. I wish this beer would never end.

2006 vintage - opened last night Wow, they aren’t kidding when they say the color is onion skin! The nose on this one was straight up raspberries and barnyard funk! The sourness was impressive but not overly vinegar, and just plain delicious!!! So glad I saved this as long as I did and so happy to have finally had the opportunity to savor it!

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
