3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pouring out a beautiful glimmering pinkish colour evidence of raspberries. A nice tuft of pink foam on top with a solid bubble density caps off a glorious appearance. The aroma a beautiful sourness blended with fresh picked raspberries and a crisp clean wheat malt. The nose is rather sublime although the sourness is unlike most other sour/wild beers Ive encountered. Sweet raspberries and fruity flavors in the mid palate show like in the aroma with a mild crisp finish. Not until my second or third sip does the sourness creep up and linger into the finish and aftertaste. A beautiful balance and a crisp sourness blend well together in creating a refreshing sour brew.

Bottle - Thanks Hoser. Nice tart raspberry, like a good jam. Clear candy red with no head. Tart raspberry, no bitterness but a pleasant sourness. A great outdoor drink, but as my sister said ’doesn’t even taste like beer’.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
To the eye, a very dark pink, viscous pour followed by a light, airy and pink head that dissipates quickly. A strong odor of tart raspberries. Sparkly feel in mouth and presence of raspberries that does not disappoint, along with a pleasant mouth-puckering sourness. An extremely well crafted Berliner, very enjoyable and refreshing on those hot, humid days!

2013 bottle brewed with raspberry’s. Thanks to Seb for the bottle. Bright ruby clear red pour with very little head, looks like cream soda. Smell is tart, with loads of raspberry and wine like notes. Wow, really sour up front, it will make you pucker for sure, dry but not bone dry like a lambic, highly carbonated, one dimensional but in a good way.

Huge ruby red
Insane framboise nose with tart strawberries
Lots of sour cherry. Lovely acetic notes. No vinegar. Clean body lovely all around. This is a great berliner

Tap at BarHop. Pink-red pour with a thin white head. Intensely tart and raspberry seed bitterness. Sour and tart but quite nice. Light bodied and acidic. Okay - but I’d actually prefer some more body in this. Very refreshing though.

Bottle shared @ Craft. Light amber with a small head. The nose is light tart fruits, a bit of bread, citrus. Taste is nicely accented by red berries. Earthy sweetness. Light body, moderately tart. Overall, refreshing stuff.

HUGE thanks to mathieuc for this!
So, I’ve had fruit lambics in the past, but never anything that smells or looks like this. This is... surreal.
Pours a clear red with a small head that fades quickly. Aroma of pure, fresh raspberries. Like, you just picked a pint of raspberries and stick your nose in it, and thats exactly what this beer smells like. Unreal. Taste is sour, tangy raspberies with a healthy lactic sourness. Good carbonation, finishes dry with a slight pucker. Pretty fucking outstanding.
This beer is just about perfect.
