3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Looks nice, deep hazy red with pink head. Aroma has tart raspberries without any funk. Taste is a bit bland, sour with some fruit character. Overall a decent fruit beer but not really what you would expect from a lambic.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2015 The beer pours a vibrant reddish purple color. This pour was quite clear, not even any haze. Fizzy pinkish head blooms up quickly, but it dies down after a couple minutes. Lots of lacing. The aroma has raspberries and funk but with a touch of artificial sweetness. Some jamminess to the fruit flavor. Funk is pretty mild but provides a nice fruity, barnyard flavor. Taste is moderately sweet with a nice tangy sourness. Mild to moderate acidity. The sweetness is actually pretty nicely balanced against the tangy sourness. It’s very easy to drink. No real off notes. Fizzy with a little body and pretty light pucker. I liked this more than I expected to.

This framboise is an incredible type really spontaneous fermented lambic, with its bubbly carbonation is fresh, lively and refreshing. Good taste and aroma of raspberries. It is aligned sweet and slightly yeasty towards the end. Very tasty and delicate.

Decent beer. Aromas of sweet cherry. More sour cherry in the flavour. Oakiness too. A bit of a watery finish.

Can feel the aroma well. Rasberries both in taste and aroma. Appearance - red, but relatively light and transparent. Light and refreshing

Ruby, bit brown with small pink head. Raspberry aroma. Good raspberry taste, sour, but not not swet, some bitterness in the beackgrouns. REfreshing. Slight bitterness stays in the aftertaste.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bière très effervescente, voire trop (cet avis est celui de mon estomac) qui une fois versée dans le verre, ne présente plus aucune mousse. Liquide bien rouge et translucide avec quelques reflets brunâtres. Le nez est sirupeux et sens le sirop de framboise d’une manière bien déplaisante. Une autre fruit lambic grand public... Mes attentes envers cette grande brasserie étaient élevées. Je me suis trompé. Du sucre, du sirop et une acidité (car la base de lambic demeure très perceptible malgré cet ajout massif de sirop). Véritable boisson d’été pour les ados.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a 375ml bottle at Cardinal in Stavanger, thanks to Sigmund for sharing. Patchy, pink layer to a cloudy red-brown body. Drying aroma of raspberry. Taste of juicy raspberry, earth, and strawberry. Mix of semi-dry tartness and sweetness towards the ending. Natural soft carbonated. Drinks well, gets a bit too sweet after a few sips though (great time with the RBHD-crew in Annen, 18.06.2015)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 375 ml bottle.
Aroma is raspberry forward with a nice jamminess and a light berry seed note. Some medium light acidity with hints of citrus and tropical fruit. Some light barnyard funk.
Pours a slightly cloudy, bright, purple red with a large, thick, rocky, pink head that exhibits nice retention as it never completely recedes.
Flavor is balanced between sweet and sour with some jammy sweetness upfront. Moderate acidity with some nice medium citrus and tropical fruit notes. A moderate bitterness with some seed notes. Light barnyard funk.
Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, a nice framboise but I still prefer ones with age that have had some time to develop a bit of nice funk. Nice tropical fruit and citrus notes to help balance out all the sweet raspberry character.
