Pros: Deep fresh red fruit aroma. Raspberry, cherry, strawberry. Very nice. The flavor is very dry, sour, shows nice fruit. Very nicely balance.

Cons: Not the best appearance. The head could show more color.

Its a very nice beer.

Bottle shared by BrianK, thanks dude. Pours a murky orange amber body with a toff white head. Some sour raspberries, hints of cherry and citric belgian style fruit. Tart and lightly woody, not to acidic some acetic acid to finish. I enjoyed this quite a bit.

Bottle at chris os teabag for 2009 tasting, thanks to Phil. Alround rating: Raspberry, nutty, thin, bit over carbonated, not overly sour, but still quite tasty stuff.

A Mes rate. Bottle at Chris Os pre NYE tasting. Well done to Phil for pulling this random nutter out. Hazy brown with a slight red hue and a faint off white collar. Massive seedy raspberries on the nose with some good wooden notes backing it up. Slight petrol and chlorine are holding it back a little but its no showstopper. The flavour is excellent. This does not drink anything like a lambic, more like a raspberry brown. This is backed up by the caramel notes that are starting to show due to age. Excellent tarty behaviour (and you know, I like a bit of that) with a really clean mouthfeel. Nice bug count all round. The fruit is quite excellent actually and gives it a lovely tarty finish. Quite unique really and jolly tasty.

Bottle at Chris o New Year tasting 08/09. Thanks to Phil l for bringing this one back. Cloudy red amber colour. Odd raspberry slightly aged aroma. Good wild fruit. Lots of raspberry. It does have some very decent fruit.

masonjer (609) - Holt, Michigan, USA - JAN 2, 2009
FOBAB 08’. Poured orange with a pinkish head. Aroma was of sweet and sour raspberries and farmhouse funk. Taste was nice and tart, raspberries soaked in vinegar and a big wood character. Interesting and tasty.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2009 Short-lived pinkish head over red-amber beer. Very sourish nose, especially initially, with both raspberries (real ones) and acetic acid, as well as old wood. Beautiful madeirisation in what is probably oak. Fresh flavours, despite the acids and the oxidation, with both cherries and raspberry again old wood & complex esters. Age has led to some thinning; titillating MF, soft burning. Raspberry juice flavour with acids lingering on in the aftertaste, some leather; Very nice beer. Rather than of Belgian fruitlambics, it reminds me of the old, aged Zottegemse Kriek, hailing from Cromb, that I used to serve. And that is no mean compliment neither. Abject thanks to Matt VW, ToddA, and of course, my go-between Ward!

22 oz. bottle, thanks to FlssmrBrewAlum. Bracing sour beer smell the moment I finally crack the wax off and open the bottle. Pours a big head under a somewhat murky but bright brown body. Raspberries definitely show when I sniff my glass, and in the right proportions, too. Taste is a little unexpected, even from my limited exposure to this style. Whoa, my stats show I havent had a fruit lambic in two years... Sour raspberries again, plus a bit of horsiness and, the power suggestion tells me, some of those cheesy aged hops. Despite all that foam, goes down a bit watery, like bottle conditioning didnt quite take hold. Still, its got oak, lots of great funk and Jolly Rancher-level sourness, all the things that make beer geeks look down upon puny humans with their "balanced" lagers. RATING no. 1599, and FLOSSMOOR BEER no. 99.

FoBAB 08. Pours a hazy brown with a small head. Aroma is a little funky with some raspberries and oak in there as well. A little acidic and not incredibly sour, but very well done. I was unaware they had this in bottles....I want!
