Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAY 12, 2011
Bottle. Pours a blush bruin body with a light pink and off white head with a light retention and no lacing. Aromatically tart raspberries and hint of cranberries. Light raspberry and apple puree and a mild sense of sweetness in the aroma. Tart funky body with a lick of prickly raspberry seeds and some light funk. A light spritzy sweetness in the body a light sugar note, a hint of acidity but i cant help but feel something is missing. A light body feels a bit thin up front with a light berry sweetness, actually very low acidity very low tartness very little wild funk or barnyard feel. Not your classic nutty/seedy finish. Just feels a bit thin, soft and with a hint of lemon and raspberries. Still nice but i want more depth in a good framboise.

Pink color, no head. Raspberry aroma. Good lacing. Not very sweet, some raspberry flavor, but not on the foreground like Lindemans or Mort Subite. It’s a permanent fight against the raspberries and the lambic. Raspberries are first, the lambic dominates the middle, then the strawberries fight back in the aftertaste.

ForlornHope (131) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours a red colour, pan flat. Perfumed aroma of fruit and some mustiness. I shared this with Mrs FH and she likes these kind of beers: she thought the aroma was of cigars, much like the taste. I can see where she is coming from, the initial sweetness is there, then a sharp and sour aftertaste. Some fruitiness, then that cigarness again. OK overall.

jookos (2900) - FINLAND - FEB 23, 2015
Bottle. Red hazy. Sweet raspberry, slight seedy, vanilla on nose. Creamy. Dry, tarty with sweet jammy flavours. Some hay malts, bit lacking in intensity, but not too bad though. Bit stale also, malts feel washed out, watery flat. Like the slight tart and clean flavour. Nice, but below average framboise (considering girardin’s track record).

Rammer (290) - Moscow, RUSSIA - FEB 4, 2015
Bottle. Raspberry sour taste. Dark red color, small head, good finish. Curiously.

Beerhunter111 (8926) - Hasborn, GERMANY - JAN 20, 2015
Klares orangerotes Bier mit einer geringen pinken Schaumkrone. Geruch nach frischen Himbeeren, leicht säuerlich, süß. Geschmack fruchtig säuerlich, frische Himbeeren, leicht pelzig, holzig.

Maakun (964) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 25, 2015
Bottle. Light ruby with small pink head. Dough, raspberries, red berries, cherry pits, light yoghurt, hay, yeasty. Light sweet with earthy dry finish, with some woody bitterness. Medium bodied with slick feel and very dry at the end. Interesting stuff, quite different from other fruit lambics.

AbouAli (180) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 30, 2014
Relativement amère. Nez et bouche intense au niveau des framboises, presque comme un bonbon. Couleur rouge-rose, très fruitée, plus qu’une kriek.

bursprak (892) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JAN 18, 2015
Bottle @ Studenterhuset. Deep red pour with a tiny pinkish head. Cherries, raspberries and cranberries. Some light vanilla notes, not very tart and easy drinkable.

LaViolette (115) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 4, 2015
Very nice and smooth rasberry lambic. Good palate, not too sweet, beautiful colour and nice sour finish. Not as good as cantillon but very pleasant and well balanced.

King_Alex_II (243) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 25, 2015
Dark ruby red color, very little pale pink foam. The smell is almost too raspberry-like it seems chemical. The taste is sour and raspberry. The carbonation decays a bit quicker than hoped for, but it still is okay. It is a tiny bit boring for a spontaneous fermented beer. Nevertheless, this is an awesome beer.
