So glad I got to try this one. On tap at the Brouwer’s sour ale fest 2010. Pours cloudy enough that it looks like it actually has raspberries crushed in it. Muddy, opaque, pinkish red, with a pink/tan head. Nose has a ton of raspberry with plenty of funk, citrus - hugely pungent aroma. Flavor is just delicious. Some grain, maybe even graham, offsetting a tart rasberry/lemon pair. This is like a rasberry pie with slightly underripe fruit. Not at all too sweet - entirely delicious, with a great pucker. My pick of the fest.

Lots of raspberry flavors in it. Tart and sour. Brownish reddish in color. A pretty good beer.

douglas88 (8336) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 22, 2010
On tap at Sour Fest in Seattle. Pours a light red color with a tiny bubble of head. The aroma is sweet fruity with vinegar. Initially more sweet than overwhelmingly sour, wood and brown malts, fruity, but a distinct sourness throughout. Tart and fruity, a very wet mouthfeel.

JAXSON (536) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2010
Bottle, enormous gusher. Lost about half the bottle. Nose is wrought with that really distinctive Lost Abbey wild yeast. Round, soft, mildly dry, and raspberry seeds. Dark crimson to maroon, thick and opaque. I thought it was initially almost pie-like on the first sip. Tons of raspberry flavors swirling about, ranging from a dry lambic to seeds in raspberry jam. Chewy. Not overly sour or dry as a whole, which is a nice change of pace from some of the harder framboise. A nice expression but rather singular and not particularly complex.

No gush here, but chilled quite severely. Raspberry-tan color, thin pinkish-white head. At cooler temperatures, the flavor comes off as raspberry funk, quite abrasive, but the warmth brings a sweeter cream, malt, and light earth as balance. Flavor is lightly acidic and heavy on raspberry, which couples nicely with the malt and lemon as the sweetness grows with warmth. There’s a real balance here once warm, the fruit showing a nice complexity as this becomes a bit of a tart dessert, the lengthy fruity finish drawn out by a lightly stinging yet thin body. Great evolution here and the raspberry with more depth than expected.

Drank next to a bunch of raspberry sours, the 8 month age is showing a bit more acid than desired. Really dark maroon, opaque, large white head with heavy lacing. Earthy raspberry, seedy, some vanilla. Flavor is more ripe raspberry than Gargamel, moderate acidity, bit of lemon. Way heavier than FfaC, acidity and ripeness of raspberry possibly. Richer than gargamel but without the integration, more complex than frambozen but not as clean and fruity. 848416

2010 Bottle - Lucky to score this from an awesome trader!! - Pours cloudy and murky ruddy red with a large beige head that appears pink in some light...aroma is gorgeous, massively lacticity that I now come to expect, tart wood, phenolic, fresh raspberry and acid...flavour does not disappoint, lemon acidity, raw oak, tons of sun ripened fruit...tannic and puckery on the finish, and yields to more fruitiness...this was so damn good...

riversideAK (6104) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAY 20, 2010
Tons of raspberries in the nose. softer underlying funky notes, a little tart. Murky dark reddish pour, great lace, light frothy ring of foam. Super sour up front, followed by fresh raspberry tartness and light sweetness. Light funk as well. Long lingering tartness. Very enjoyable.

arminjewell (9237) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 19, 2010
Pours deep red/brown with off white lacing head. Aroma is big sweet raspberries, some funk, vinegar, and cheese. Taste is great, with big acetic mouth puckering sour up front with some awesome tart raspberries in the middle finishing sour, funky, and dry. The best framboise I’ve had to date, has all the perfect characteristics.
