Palme (3311) - Bergen, - OCT 1, 2012
0.375l bottle. This is crystal clear deep red body with a fading bubbly and light lacing pinkish head. The aroma has lots of sweet raspberries mixed with some wet grass and woody currants. Interesting. In the flavor it starts off quite acidic and sour with lemon and bitter old wet wood and raspberries, then it continues with a more sweet profile. Sweet raspberries and even some strawberries. Woody and a hint of moss and some cellar fungi. Not a favorite in the framboise genre, but it grows on you. 04.08.2012

Davros (1920) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 28, 2014
Pours ruby-tinted copper with a pink-tinged head. Nose shows authentic raspberries with a little funk in the background. Flavours focus on sweet raspberry jam at first followed by a pronounce, balancing bitterness. Perhaps just a little on the sweet side overall. Nice moderately high carbonation works well.

Fin rød farge. Syrlig duft av kirsebær. Tynt lag hvit skum. Syrlig fin smak av kirsebær.

Cimbasso (66) - - AUG 25, 2014
This lambic-style pours bright pink. Strong raspberry taste. Not quite as sour as the Girardin Kriek (cherry) version not sweet either. Has a biting dryness without the astringency of the Kriek. Could be refreshing when served chilled. It does not have the ’wild’ tastes of some lambic beers.

Holmen1 (2378) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 24, 2014
Fra flaske på Cardinal, M2 ssesongåpning: lyserød med kort filmskum (som de fleste slike). Kraftig bringebæraroma (ingen overraskelse). Den er ganske tørr og lett astringerende, noe som gjør den lettere å konsumere, men det blir allikevel for mye Kongen av Danmark for meg.

Alengrin (1296) - BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2014
Classic framboise with thinnish, off-white head and dark orangey red robe. Lots of rewarding lambic funkiness in the nose but in an elegant way, drenched in loads of fresh strawberries, woody, vinegary, lemony notes, barnyard, ’wild’. Tart taste teeming with fresh fruit, very fresh and crisp, bit funky, no disturbing artificial sweetness, long and complex, woody lambic finish. Authentic.

ClubGonzo (3995) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 18, 2014
Bottle from etregourmet.be webshop. Pours a clear orange-hued deep pink body with a medium creamy white head. Nose is tart raspberries, cherry pits, red fruits, lemon acid and hints of barnyard funk, hay and citric peel. Taste is tart raspberries, lemon acid, mild apple vinegar and hints of barnyard funk, hay and dry lemony citric tones. Medium body, medium to high carbonation. Lovely, clean and tart Framboise from Girardin, very refreshing indeed; accessible and high in drinkability.

Holmen2 (832) - NORWAY - AUG 18, 2014
From bottle had Cardinal. Bright red. Not much head, as is standard in this style. Strong and refreshing aroma of raspberries. Similarly fine and refreshing taste. Dry and slightly sour. Well balanced with good drinkability, but not as complex as the top examples of this style.

Bottle. Hazy deep red color with a medium thin frothy off-white head. Aroma of cranberry, lambic yeast and raspberry. Medium sour taste with some bitterness.

A really nice framboise. Not super sweet, but it has a really nice raspberry flavor that burns through the sourness.
