henrikb (1259) - Aarhus, - FEB 26, 2010
Beautiful deep red orange body; Pleasant nose with some fresh fruit but most of the aromas is of overripe raspberry like the aroma of cheap jam; Very soft textured quite filling body with a sharp acid; Even sharper acid in the finish where it both warms and burns your trouht , some fruit aromas. Not bad at all, but quite far from the best.

Mortlach (1101) - Rome, ITALY - APR 5, 2015
375ml bottle shared @La Tana (Rome) with ippopotamo36. Pours a light red color with a medium foam. Aroma is vinegar, yeasts, dirty socks, citric, framboise, disappointing. Flavour is aggressive and rough, lots of vinegar that cover fruit, citric and tart, unelegant and difficult do drink. Medium body, high carbonation. Forget it.

RexTalionis (2928) - FINLAND - MAR 20, 2015
Bottle. Unclear dark reddish in color with an off-white head. Raspberries hits one instantly on the nose, fresh they feel too, like being picked straight from the garden, but smashed just a bit perhaps. Some funkiness on the side here, sweaty woolsocks perhaps too. Tastewise its mostly about them raspberries. Tart mouthfeel. Sour notes and some berries later on. Wooden oakyness and funkyness in finish. Good.

Douberd (2953) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAR 19, 2015
(Hanssens Experimental Raspberry (Frambozenlambik)) Bottle 375 ml, corled and caged served into a tumbler, ABV 6% Light orange colour on a mostly clear body, some bubbles forming on top but not a real head. The aforementioned bubbles burst at once, eventually leaving a thin line of white foam around the glass. Fruity aroma, berries, candy sugar, gummy bears. Wow, very sour taste. Raspberries, traces of candy sugar on the finish, some wood. Medium thin body, light carbonation, mildly tart palate. Good one, its sourness is the big plus here.

Bottle, at the strike of 12, newyears 14/15. Reddish golden color with tiny white head. Aroma is tart, sour and acidic, wood, fruit, citrus, zest and various funky notes. Taste has high acidity, fruit, raspberry, granate apple and grapefruit. Really nice!

ippopotamo36 (599) - Rome, ITALY - FEB 27, 2015
Bottle at La Tana pub in Rome-Italy with huge thanks to mortlach for sharing it. Grazie! Pours pinkish red, minimal bubbling no-foam. Nose is pungent of esters and cellar. In the mouth this beer blasts the drinker with the most adventurous tartness (up to your taste like it or not, I did like). Raspberries in the background, dusty notes and a tart mouthfeel which stays long enough to let you recall this gem.

Beerconnaiseur (164) - BELGIUM - JAN 31, 2015
Pour starts tangy yellow in the air, ends with golden red sunset glow in the glass, no head at all. Highly translucent! Very soury aromas, oak followed by tangerine, citrus, lemon, zesty, dark fruits a bit, horsesadle and earth mud full on. Low carb is allowing the flavours to emerge; sour grenadine, flat pediococcus lingers on slightly, dims out and sticks to the teeth, granate apple and lots of grapefruit... Thank god the world has experiments like these, but too sour for the faint hearted. X

Fin (8080) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2015
Bottle from Dranken Geers, Oostakker, nr Gent, Belgie, consumed at home Thursday 22nd January 2015 Pours a washed out pinky red l with little or no head, other than being a different colour, its not exactly gonna turn heads at the beer beauty pageant. Taste wise it was too cold at first (my fault) but 3/4 of the way through it warmed a little and improved hugely. Fresh raspberries on nose, tart, zappy sour raspberries in mouth, a little challenging but perservere and you will be rewarded. Jolly pleasant. A7 A3 T8 P4 Ov16 3.8

EdKing (2068) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2015
Bottle in the Craft Beer Co Clapham. Clear red to pink, no head. Nose is fresh raspberry fruit, lactobacillus sour, tart berry, slight volcanic rock minerals, slight Brett funk. Mainly clean and fresh tartness and berry fruit. Taste is nice hit of clean crisp fresh raspberry, mixture of the tart berry fruit with lactobacillus sour. Finish gives a lovely lingering raspberry fruit hit, then into moderate sour and tartness. Clean, fruit forward lambic with eery fruit sweetness and tartness and then moderate sour yeast. Easy drinking lambic.

Bill Becker (479) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Bottled in March of 2013. Thanks, notches on the label! Its hazy, golden orange, small head of foam that shrinks ever so quickly. Yet, the lacing is decent. Sour nose, to be sure. Mixed with the oak; I cannot say what the source of the sourness is from without reading the label. Raspberries, eh? Very sour taste, noticeable oak flavour, fruit wise, again, I could not for the life of me, identify it. Tastes good though. When it comes to Belgian sours, Hanssens is the only one to show up in Casper and I am thankful for that!!
