Ruby with pink head. Amazing raspberry smell. Really nice raspberry flavor. Tart and lemony. One of the better lambic I have ever tried.

Lou Pepe Framboise ’11 Vintage Pours a very saturated, burgundy red color, with a soon disappating, fizzy head. Exhibit a fantastic smelling nose, with a very pronounced raspberry presence, blending perfectly into the tart acidity of the beer, establishing a reminiscence of young berries and young, fermented wine. Barnyard funk mingles together with prickly raspberry stones, tied together by a sweet, fruity undertone, exhibiting a gentle depth to the aromas. Has a medium carbonation and a very soft mouthfeel, with raspberry at every stage of drinking. Tastes of unripe raspberries right from the beginning, wrapped up in leaves, moldy earth and tart funk - wild berries on an abandoned road during rain. This changes, as an earthy sweetness adds to the raspberries spending them a ripe note, including prickly, still sour stones. This fruity sweetness then stays on par with the bitterness on the palate till the finish, with the berries exhibiting a dusty earth note anong ripened, slightly fermented raspberry pulp, leaving behind a slick sourness. The balance between ripe and young, sour raspberries, finding their quintessence in between, makes this beer noteworthy, featuring a lot of subtle Barnyard nuances.

Tasting with comparing LP against rose de Gambrinus. Loads of raspberry on the nose. Taste is excellent! Sweeter than the Gambrinus and absolutely more raspberry flavour.

Shared at a tasting hosted by Steebo on February 13. 2011 stickered 750 mL bottle. Oh man, been waiting for this one! The pour is a slightly haxy ruby color with a big light pink head that leaves some excellent lace and falls down to a small pile of foam in the middle of the beer. The aroma is beautifully raspberry with a nice great funk to it. Lots of hay and a great dankness to it. The flavor is great. Lots of bright raspberry and an excellent funk to go with the sharp crispness of the sour. The mouth feel is amazing. Light, but carbonated fully, lingering aftertaste, hugely bitter and then sweet on the back end. I love this beer!

2011 750ml Bottle at Nuetnigenough, Brussels, 12th May 15. Pours an impressive ruby red, pretty clear. Aroma is raspberries, fresh and captured at their prime. Taste is intense raspberries, well balanced not too sour, but traslt refreshing, slight funk, but the raspberries dominate. Great lambic

Bottle at Nuetnigenough in Brussels. Pours a beautiful clear ruby rose color with a whitish-pinkish head. Aroma is deliciously tart, sweet, raspberries, light funk. Similar flavor, good balance of sweet and tart. Definitely one of my favorite offerings from Cantillon.

Bottle at home for my birthday, 2011 label/2013 cork. Slight hazy pink/orange with big off white to pink head that leaves some nice island of bubbles. Lots of visible carbonation too. Musty raspberry, red berries, hay, straw. This has the most barnyard smell I have ever gotten in a beer, pure straw, earth, wood and some diesel fumes. Taste is medium strong sour, not really vinegary but fruity or red wine that is on it’s way too become vinegar. Medium bodied with very crisp feel and full prickly carbonation. Very good.

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.
