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

Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell, London during the Birthday Celebration of Jack & Leighton - big thanks to Jack for making my Cantillon dreams come true. Vintage 2008 bottle. Pours murky ruby with a light, pink cream head. Alright, from here out the review will be brief; this is the best beer of the day for me and I’m just going to sit back and enjoy it. Bottom line: great beer. Big tang, loads of tart raspberry. Quenching. Delicious.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This beer has a gorgeous appearance - a reddish-purple hue, with a pink foam head that sticks around longer than expected, and leaves no lacing, as is expected. Wonderful aromas of raspberries, hay, barnyard funk. Classic Cantillon scents - simply wonderful. I could sniff this beer for several minutes without taking a drink. The aroma alone is worthy of praise and attention. This beer is truly excellent. While definitely tart, I would not say that it is incredibly sour. Lou Pepe Framboise is extremely drinkable, and has a much milder acetic finish than the Rosé de Gambrinus. Very pleasant lingering tart raspberry aftertaste. Delicious!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2008 bottle at the birthday tasting. The pour’s deep red with a small off-white head. Really bright, jammy nose. Loads of tart raspberry. A bit of nose-tingling barnyard. Mild acid. The taste is similarly jammy. Nicely clean, sharp raspberry fruit profile. Pillowy sweetness. There’s a building green apple skin acidity in the finish. Otherwise, light refreshing stuff. Light body, medium carbonation. Overall, a great fruit lambic. Highly drinkable.

Bottle 75 cl, 2006 vintage. Pours hazy reddish orange in color with a small whitish head. Raspberries and light wooden notes in aroma, some raspberry jam as well, which makes it feel quite like a summer meadow filled with raspberries. Tart mouthfeel. Is a bit acidic, but yet it feels quite soft and smooth. Sour raspberries in taste but some lemony fruityness as well.
