maus (32) - Tartu, ESTONIA - MAY 17, 2013
Very good lambic. Clear ruby red, nose is of actual raspberries and a hint of something rural in the background, maybe a bit like a farmhouse on a misty june morning, something earthy and soft tangy animal smell. Very nice! Taste is sour, clean, nice soft bitterness and leaves a dry quiet aftertaste, a hint of something acidic. Perfect beer for a picnic in a park.

Aroma sour raspberries, shocker! Massive raspberry flavour and a great sour tang to go with it. Appearance is pink and cloudy. Very refreshing, just what the doctor ordered!

Kunstemaecker (27) - Steenkerke, BELGIUM - AUG 7, 2011
A fresh raspberry aroma and a turquoise appearance. Nice sparkle to it. Minimal white head. Medium sour taste with the raspberries clearly present. This is a refreshing and wonderful fruit lambic.

37.5 cL [corked and caged]: an oozing stream of liquid garnet meanders through the raspberry bed . . . mint, lime zest, oak, bark, honey, and earth hang in the air. As I approach the patch the sunbeams cut the thick air and warm my skin. I feast on the raspberries and notice luscious complexities of iron, pomegranates, orange flesh, blood, hay, limestone, and dry earth. Full carbonation make for an amazing treat.

Jerre (2694) - Waregem, BELGIUM - JUN 9, 2007
Bottle, 37,5 cl. Hazy, red color with white-pinkish head. Aroma of fresh raspberries, little yeasts. Medium body. Taste full of raspberries, sourness, very fruity, with a dry finish. Very good for a framboise.

Fin (7484) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2009
Bottle that I picked up from Dranken Geers, Oostakker, Nr Gent, Belgium March 09 Pours the richest most glorious deep ruby red, good clarity and with a fluffy pink head that Barbie would just love for a foam party. The raspberry aromaís fly off of this with some confectionery sweet raspberry notes as well which just take the edge off of it a touch. This is sweet, tart, sour, crisp, refreshing, actually this is just summer in a glass. Iím reminded of raspberry meringues and picking rapberries off of the canes down the garden, gorging myself when Lozís back is turned as they are her favourite fruit and turning around and getting caught out with the odd stray pip and scarlet chin proving my undoing. This isnít as sour as some but that maybe why I am attracted to it even more, for me this is just great and how I like a fruity lambic. great stuff! A8 A5 F9 P5 Ov17 4.4

Brix (633) - DENMARK - JUN 13, 2010
Tasted 2010-06-13. Bottle from 2010. Pours clear, deep red with no head. Raspberry aroma. Not much funk in aroma or taste. A very girl-friendly framboise. Not much acidity for the style, but not sweet either. Pretty good actually.

Gary (1398) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 26, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2011 330ml corked. The aroma kissed my nose with tart rasberry funk .
this purple liquid sits in an Orval chalice like it owns it. You pay your money for that puckering , bone dry fruity acidity that real Lambic posses, this made we wince and shiver . . Legit Frambroise Lambics are really classy when executed with this kinda elegance.

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