kryon (1842) - SWEDEN - JUL 4, 2015
Pours hazy burgundy with low head Aromas of raspberry lemonade, caramel, citrus, sour fruits, hints of garden branch Taste perfectly well balanced with raspberries, red currant, sour green apples. Lovely!

Prufrockstar (1444) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 27, 2015
Bottle thanks to Dice. Loads of funk, oak, and rubber. Not particularly fruit-forward to me on the nose, but makes up for it in the taste. Jammy (like raspberry purée) and assertively, borderline aggressively tart. Medium body, lively carbonation.

beastiefan2k (2808) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - JUN 27, 2015
750mL shared by diceman. Pops hard. Pours with some head that fades into nothing. Thick dirty pink color. Dry raspberry aroma, some light fecal, tart smelling but not sour and no acetic. Flavor is smooth, lactic unsweet raspberry. Tart dry end. Low acetic, lower acid, tart and dry with fruit essence.

rosenbergh (8434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 20, 2015
750 ml bottle. At the Tuulensuu, Tampere, Finland. 2012 vintage.
Pours hazy orange brown colour with lots of floaters and tiny head. Sour... I mean sour... aroma with vinegar and mild raspberry sweetness. Vinegar, tartness, rowanberry and hell of a lot sourness in the flavour. A bit messy and unbalanced.

baraciisch (2290) - California, USA - JUN 14, 2015
Hazy magenta... Aroma is vinegar... Tastes like balsamic... Really acetic... Weird beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a bottle acquired in early 2015 so I presume it is a 2014 vintage. Aroma is moderately fruity with medium raspberry notes, light citrus and tropical fruit. Moderate barnyard funk and some light herbal phenolics. Light oak notes. Pours a very hazy, red with some copper hues and a small, pink head that recedes to the edges where it is replenished by effervescent carbonation. Light lacing and small legs. Flavor is moderately sour with some nice lactic notes and some light citrus and tropical fruit. Moderate raspberry notes, but not jammy at all. Nice moderate barnyard character that I like about De Cam and some light herbal phenolic notes. Definitely the most lambic forward of the framboises that I have opened in the past couple days. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, an ugly beer - the carbonation kicked all the fruit bits up into the beer when I released the cork. But aroma and flavor wise this beer is great. So much nice funk that is supported by the fruit without being overwhelmed by it.

rxeight (1856) - Illinois, USA - JUN 6, 2015
750 from Belgium in a box, 9/2012 bottle. Glowing fusha pink color. Aroma is funk and fresh raspberry. Taste is raspberry purée. Medium sour and medium acidity. Usually raspy sours come off rather acidic, but this doesn’t.

Jow (2669) - New York, USA - JUN 2, 2015
At WTWBA. Very murky red pour. Funky nose with red fruit. Tastes of raspberry, cherry, wood, some wine residue, and floral. Semi tart and relatively understated flavor but lovely in subdued way.

From the 750 bottle and poured out of a basket! Funky aroma. Pinkish red in color. Musty and light tart of fruit. Really great.

A: Funky raspberry! Liqourice?! T: Raspberry of course. O: Very tart! Actually to tart for my taste. The raspberry is nice though.
