3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ tasting, courtesy of Zer0. Pours a hazy copper colored beer without any head on top. Aroma is chemical raspberries, wild yeast and very aggresive. Flavor is less aggresive, raspberries are faded in the background. Tartness is present, but a chemical presence in there which is not really defined. There is a disturbance in the force with this one. Not very good.

Bottle shared at mrhangover’s place at his epic Eclipse tasting. Pours cloudy golden with no head. Aroma is funky, chemical, fruity and acidic. Taste is better than the aroma. Moderate sour and moderate sweet. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Ambrée trouble moyen rappelant le jus de framboise, pas de col, pas de mousse.
Arôme est malté modéré, note de levure fermentante - framboise faiblarde rappelant un mauvais lambic suivi d’une note de malt - pain/biscuité rappelant le muffin.
Palais est léger, aigre, note de drêche, malt cara-pâle sur un arrière goût de framboise. Le palais n’est pas mauvais mais un pauvre exemple du style, soit entre un lambic et une bière fruitée. Le profil malt domine avec un ajout de framboise qui reste trop discret donnant cette impression de jus de framboise dilué dans de l’eau. Le tout reste néanmoins épais, possible ajout d’avoine,

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled, large sample. Clear golden color, frothy short head, mainly some lacing. Aroma of white wine, lots of barnyard and farmhouse qualities, some raspberry. Hints of fruit lambic actually. Slight tart taste, hint of fruity sweetness. Aroma is quite good, flavor could have a bit more of everything. Decent stuff.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2013 Thx! to Kraddel. 2012 Vintage. 50 cl. bottle sampled. Dark amber orange, bit darker lambic-look with lots of sediments, remains of raspberries? basically no head. Nose is lightly tart, brett, light orange peel, light, slightly tart raspberry,... Taste is very watery with some brett, lightly tart, orange peel, tangerine, all tart, some light tart raspberry, soapy, watery, light herbs,... Flat & water, like a very week & somewhat failed sour. Meh. The bottle does recommend to drink this fresh & the first rating from 2012 is much higher than all following ratings...

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Utterly lifeless pinkish tinted rust-coloured beer, clear. End of bottle galss-adhesive lumps of... yeast? Raspberries, faint lambic-like aroma, watered-down sherry. Rather watery, partly oxdized raspberry flavour, as a glass of water with a tablespoon of totally dissolved raspberry jam, faintly sweetish. Watery, empty, light. Has all this yeast (?) done anything at all?

Sample at beer day 2012 in Kolding
Wow a delicious framboise. The aroma and taste of this amber red beer is cherry sourish, with notes off vinegar, almonds, cellar, yeast and citrus.
it is really nicely balanced and would make a perfect summer drink on a hot night in the garden
