MarcoDL (2059) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 14, 2014
Nice lambic based fruit beer. Fresh and a bit sour, but not nearly as sour as Girardin’s geuze or kriek. Decent.

Erzengel (2397) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 13, 2014
Bottle from 2012. Very intense and fruity raspberry-aroma in the nose. Even nicely sweet. The beer starts nicely sour, not too much. Light in body. In the mainpart there is some horse-blanket, nice dry and not too sour raspberry aroma. Also some grain. The aftertaste is medium, moderate sourness and light horse-blanket aroma. Very smooth and mild. The aftertaste is a nice and smooth mixture between horse-blanket sourness and dry raspberry.
--> Very nice and smooth fruit-lambic. Round and typical in aroma. But for my taste this one could be a bit more intense - both the lambic as well the raspberry. --> 13/13/12/12

Bathory (458) - Bryne, NORWAY - JAN 4, 2014
Pours a deep ruby colour with a big white head that disappears after a little while. Aroma of sour strawberry, quite sweet. Flavour is medium sour strawberry some sweerness, some touches of peach. A bit watery mouthfeel, soft carbonation. A very okey fruit beer.

hobsch (420) - Cologne, GERMANY - NOV 10, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2014 Bottle 0.375l at Brugs Beertje Brugge. Pours pink with light pink head. Aroma is framboise galore, sweet. Taste is tart, framboise, light sweet. Watery. High carbonation. One dimensional, too watery. Overall disappointing.

finol (2110) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 5, 2013
Bottle at Chez Leontine, Gent. Pours clear pink with a White head. Drinkable, sweet and fruity. Would probably pair up nice with a heavy chocholate desert.

Hopfemandli (107) - Zug, SWITZERLAND - NOV 1, 2013
37.5 cl, bb C X 2014 -- Tiefes Altrosa mit bräunlichen Reflexen. Üppiger feinporiger hell-beiger Schaum. Betörendes, intensives sauberes Himbeer-Bouquet. Auf der Zunge herbe, etwas aggressive Säure, welche die Frucht und die süssen Noten zu stark dominiert. Trotzdem zweifellos ein grosses Bier.

CapFlu (4476) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 26, 2013
Deep, clouded ruby body emitting a sweet raspberry nose. Thankfully somewhat more tart then it's aroma, some seedy taste and mild balsamic vinegar. Okay. 37,5cl bottle; courtesy of Olivier.

Lowenbrau (1886) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 3, 2013

Ktwse (1897) - SWEDEN - SEP 19, 2013
Pours brownish red, lightly cloudy, with big pinkish head. Aroma is massive with raspberries, strawberries, wild strawberries, incredibly fruit intense. Taste is balanced tart sour with the fruit less dominant but still present. Finish is tart, dry and crisp. Light body with fairly lively carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
