3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - 12.7 oz corked and caged. Pours rose colored with only spotty bubbles for the head. Aroma is extremely sour. Strong, tart berries, lemon juice, vinegar notes, sour fruit, salty sweat, and funky yeast. Taste is surprisingly not as sour. Raspberries, sour fruit, tart, unripened berries, funky yeast, damp earth, and wet wood. Ever so slight sweetness in this. Body is light and essentially uncarbonated but still bone dry and very acidic. Ends with more raspberry notes, tart , unripened berries, funky yeast, damp earthiness, wet wood, sweat, and sour fruit. Yummy but I wish this had some carbonation to it.

Huge thanks to daknole!!! Bottle pours brilliant red with orange tint. Aroma is huge funky raspberry, with mouthwatering lactic acidity. Flavor is extremely well rounded with sweet raspberry being countering by excellent lactic and acetic balance. Even some light bile. Damn good stuff.

Bottle. Very small pop from the cork and the beer is pretty much flat. Syrupy amber / rose pour; no head. Aroma is some tart fruit and bacteria. Flavor is the same, pretty tart once it was warm. Without carbonation, the palate is pretty wrong, and the bacteria finish almost tastes like it is infected.

batch? early pour is crystal clear with no head but some haze from yeast is present towards the end. low carbonation but excellent acid keeps the body firm, quaffable and alive (put it under your tongue and see how much you salivate). tart semi-fresh raspberries are prickly/hairy with abundant basement must and dusty wood/barnyard. light lactic acid, light pedio (bile) and light musty bandaid brettanomyces with fresh pricked fruit notes. the fruit seems to bury most phenols and esters, which in framboise is certainly welcome. thankfully it’s not overly acidic as I’ve heard previous batch of similar beers are, bit it is certainly strongly tart and sour. enjoyable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled batches 1 and 2 together. The first batch of this beer is bracingly, nearly undrinkably acidic; the point of this comparison was to see if things had changed.
Both batches are flat. The new batch is a much brighter, lighter, cleaner red color, almost pink, which is reflected in the flavor. It is much more fresh, juicy, and actually has some notes of raspberry. It is still quite acidic, though not as dangerously so. It really, really could use some carbonation: the flatness detracts significantly from the beer. Carbonation would probably remove some of the edge from the acid, as well as pep up the body. The old batch, even after a year, remains pretty much undrinkable, and would be better as salad dressing.

Ap4 – Pours a beautiful reddish pink with no head, just the faintest ring of carbonation around the edge.
Ar8—great fresh raspberry aroma with a tart brett character with an acidity that hits the back of the throat hard
Flavor8—very acidic throughout with a solid raspberry flavor—very fresh and non-medicinal, as a few raters here have suggested—the funk (slightly cheesey with hay and horseblanket notes) blossoms in the finish after the acidity has subsided a bit.
Pal4—medium to full bodied and pretty much flat with only the slightest hint of carbonation, which I love, but which isn’t for everyone
Ov17—top notch Lambic, truly top notch.
