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.

Dark red pour with no head. Smells like delicious raspberries. Flavor is old stale raspberry with fake sugar crap added. Not a fan.

Bottle @ MBCF 2016, full on raspberry fizz and soft sour shoe. I'd be more succinct but number of characters requires vociferous dialogue.

ChtiBreizh (393) - Rennes, FRANCE - JAN 18, 2016
37,5 cl bottle from Vanuxeem. Dark pink with a very thin bubbly head. Lots of fresh raspberries, funk, tart, leaves. Medium sweet balanced with a significant sourness. Light astringent and bitter finish. Good overall.

freretoc (1379) - Besançon, FRANCE - DEC 15, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 37.5cl à la brasserie, couleur rose, petite mousse et énorme effervescence. Nez sur la framboise et le bois en bouche énorme attaque sur la framboise et le bois, fin de bouche acide assez piquante sur la langue.

erickok (4626) - Leuven, BELGIUM - OCT 11, 2015
Stunning nosy, bright and inviting, nice head. Great aroma, concentrated raspberry, although moderate in beery notes. Taste not quite up to that standard, with less sourness and less complexity than I hoped. Ending is quite short too. It’s okay, but either not aged enough or needs more malt complexity to really lift up the flavours. (33cl bottle from Prik&Tik Leuven)

Alexanderdahl (122) - DENMARK - SEP 5, 2015
Strawberry red pour, no head. Lots of rasperries. Acidy and fresh with tart sweetness. Sweet impact, lots of raspberries but turns on you with sharp acid. Quite bitter, actually.

olsvammel (4942) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2015
Bottle from a belgian bottle shop (forgot which one). Tart smell with lots of raspberries. Similar taste. Refreshing. Very fruity with a strong raspberry aroma. Not that sour though.

ciocanelu (598) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JUL 27, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Looks nice, deep hazy red with pink head. Aroma has tart raspberries without any funk. Taste is a bit bland, sour with some fruit character. Overall a decent fruit beer but not really what you would expect from a lambic.
