4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2014 Thanks to Bonke for selling me this! Pours hazy redish with no head. Aroma of nice deep fresh raspberries from the bush along with balsamic, lots of funk, cherries, vinegar, wild strawberries, a very weak note of lacto acid, brett, marzipan sweetness, a touch of candy, tart and alot of rural notes overall. Taste is very tart with those fresh wild raspberries straight from the bush, cherries, brett, weak acidic, balsamic, sour deep grapes, barnyard, red currants and overall extremely fresh! A nice reminder about why I love beer so much!
Had the Pleasure of tasting batch 2 as well. As I remembered this had an extremely nice balance between the extreme fruitiness and the funky rural notes. Itís just so pleasing and very complex! Yet this was not a complete stunner as the first time I got it. Donít know if itís because of batch 2 or because my taste buds changed or whatever. This time My rating would have been around 4,4/4,5 . But because my memory of this was so good (and rating 4,7) I am going to only bumb this down to a 4,6 .
Amazing beer that is just top notch and which I could drink all day long!

Bags of succulent raspberries, huge amounts of funk, good acidic notes, straight up awesome drinkability. Super clean. Easily the best fruit beer I have ever had. Amazingly complex. Savior every sip. Thanks!

So happy to have this beer. Drank alongside some other awesome beers, including a Framboos. Brownish-orange pour with a white head. The aroma has some nice raspberry notes as well as some barnyard funk and caramel malt. The flavor is full of raspberry and cherry notes with a medium level of sourness, some caramel and toffee. There is also some funk, but the flavor starts to get a bit medicinal with some bandaid notes as I drink more of it. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Bottle shared by Tony at RBAG, thanks man! Appearance is a hazy pink with lots of frothy head. Aroma is plenty of hose shit, with hints of raspberries and other tart fruit. Taste is acidic up front, followed by funk and tart fruit, finishes slight sour and somewhat crisp. Wow, this was great, lots of fruit character mixed in with plenty of funk, tons of complexity, just great stuff.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle of 75 cl at In De Verzekering Tegen De Grote Dorst. Traditional framboise with sour cherries added, reminding conceptually of Cantillonís Rosť de Gambrinus, but with more emphasis on the raspberries. Thin, loose, off-white bubbly head, murky pinkish deep fuchsia colour with brownish hue. Aroma has a ton of fresh fruit, red raspberries of course, but the sour cherries are equally noticeable; lemon, celery, tomato juice almost like in a Bloody Mary, blue grape peel, old sherry, raspberry vinegar, wet wood. Very rich sour fruit flavour, a lot of red raspberry with a beautiful aromatic quality, very lightly sweet, paired with a deeper, more tangy sour cherry tartness and a ton of esters, tomato juice again, fruit yoghurt without the sugar, crisp and astringently acid, soapy wheat, complex sherryish wood finish with ongoing acidity and finely tingling carbo, cherry stone astringency, leather, extremely dry in the end. Expensive, but very recommended if you are into uncompromizing fruit lambics, a worthy tribute to the late Gaston Debelder indeed.

Bottle, shared at RBAG 2015, received in trade from JulienHuxley-- thanks! Pinkish orange, fresh clean aroma and palate of raspberries and funk, medicinal undertones, bandaid and hints of wintergreen. Wow. Unexpectedly complex. Very very compelling.

Red brown again, like framboos. Smells like a jar of Vaseline, others say band aid, dry wood. Cherry outshines raspberry in the flavor, tart and dry. Flavor great, smell not so much.

Sticks on the nose. The 5% cherry really comes through. Sweet, sour, hay, perfume. Nice!

Part of a stellar tasting lineup at K&L Wines in Redwood City. Another one to thank Jim for opening. Perhaps it would score slightly better if it was not the encore to a taster of Framboos. Very good in all respects as it shows as a nice blend of deep red fruit with sour accents that blend nicely.
