wickedpete (634) - Lexington Park, Maryland, USA - MAY 25, 2009
2005 vintage, bottled 2007. Dark ruby red body with a short pink creamy head that slowly fades to a mist. The aroma is strongly tart and funky, some hay, dust, vinegar, and rhubarb. A mellow sweet raspberry aroma comes through middle to end. Heavily sour and acidic. Very vinegar like with only slight fruit noticeable in the middle. Finishes with a strong funky sour. I was hoping for a bit more fruit along with the tartness, but this is by far the sourest beer I’ve ever tasted and I love it.

Pours a stunning ruby red. Pink head. Aromas are fresh raspberries. Sugared raspberries. A touch of oak and funk. Flavours are very fresh and sour raspberries. Some sweetness. I almost taste the vine and soil from the raspberries. Exquisite.

Dégustée chez Cantillon en compagnie de Joey. Cheers buddy! Rouge, flamboyante, mousseuse, semi translucide, cette bière c’est l’été dans une bouteille! La mousse est interminable, sans être collante évidemment. Nez de framboises fraîches des champs sans le côté trop sûr ou trop sucré. Un bois léger, une acidité modérée, lambic adouci (vintage 2012) le tout dans un ensemble des mieux balancés et subtils. La bières est harmonieuse tout en étant franchement définie du côté framboise. Je ne suis habituellement pas amoureux des bières fruitées mais celle-ci m’a tout simplement renversé. Merci Cantillon et Jean Van Roy!

Bottle. Cloudy pinkish-purple pour with a thin off white head. Aroma of raspberries, barnyard funk and white grapes. Thin velvety mouthfeel with a nice puckering sour finish.

Tart & sour. Great aroma of raspberry. Popped the Cantillon cherry. Lambic are different, and a bit of an acquired taste, but I could get used to them, if they're all gonna be as good as this.

Awesome raspberries awesome dry dark cherries along with the predominate raspberries. The dry tartness over came flavor after the initial fruity presence. Exactly how it should be. Somewhat flat. Wonderful beer.

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.
