CapedBrewsader (265) - Brasschaat, BELGIUM - SEP 6, 2008
37.5cl bottle at home: Hazy deep fuscia with a more brown center. Tall fading steamed salmon head made of large bubbles. Sense of cherry and raspberry syrups. An almost "sugar substitute" accent. Nice hint of tannic fruit skins with must and dark earth. A lactic vein only appears when swirled up. Upon tasting you first notice tart apple-skin and dark cherry-skin with some cherry pit tannins. Classic underlying lambic flows in behind the skins and pits. Raspberry and cherry character but really subdued when compared to the aroma. Starts off feeling medium bodied but does a great job of drying out as it lingers. Nice dry and lightly tart (for a lambic) finish.

JoeinDahlem (1440) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 25, 2008
Tart and dry drink that comes across classy. 37.5 bottle at Botteltje in Oostende. Pours clear reddish-amber with pink-tinted, grayish head. Looks natural, even if filtered. Smells like fresh raspberry jam with musty accents. Flavor has only light sweetness, going tart and pretty dry at the end. Raspberry notes are restrained in flavor, which is nice I think.

daniele (7810) - ITALY - AUG 22, 2008
rossastra buona schiuma ma non molto persistente note di lampone confettura pochissima acidità al naso in bocca tanto lampone dolcezza da succo zuccherato con per anche la sua acidità che pero sembra molto lieve nella base tanto lampone poco gueuze

38cl, from De Hopduvel Gent, sour fruit beer, not balanced, clear, nearly no head, nothing special, needs to be revised

Brouwser (119) - gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 20, 2008
Bière aux reflets cerise. peu de mousse et d’effervescence. Un voil moyen à l’apparence de pâte de fruits. Arome de fraise et de framboise avec un léger parfum suret. Le goût rappel le jus de fruits, avec une pointe sûre. Le palais est ordinaire. Une bonne bière de fruit mais le caractère de leur gueuze y manque...

renffisch (890) - london, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2008
as far as fruit lambics go this a very harmonious not too sweet and not too sour version. The raspberry flavour are much mor in the leaves and pips than fruit. definitely one of the best. yumm. sorry, more drinking than rating, it’s too goooooood.

thewolf (11986) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2008
Bottle @ Plan B., cph.
Pours pale, lightly hazy red. Big frothy, white-pink head. Disappears rather quickly. Super fresh aroma of raspberries and light tarty funkiness. Rather spritzy mouthfeel, but a little thin. Mild, citric tartness at first. Some light (actually a bit disappointing) raspberries and a funky finish with weak caramel.

Pinkish orange with a small white head. Strong berry aroma, mostly raspberry. Dry fruity flavour, some raspberry and almond, only a little tartness.

JK54B (1539) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 25, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2008 A nice and sour framboise in a 0.375 l bottle. Light red-brown color. Light taste of raspberry and also raspberry seeds. Flat carbonation. Typical sourness.

mabel (8537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 21, 2008
[1168-20080301] Bottle. Raspberry leafy fruit yeast aroma. Clear, bright red body with a medium-lasting foamy light pink head. Sour bready yeast and raspberry fruit flavour with a grainy finish. Medium body is a little more tart than sour. Great balance of sour and fruit, plus an excellent finish to the festival day!
