4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Perry’s Liquor. 33 cl; c&c. Pours dark murky brown with a 4 finger lightly pinkish beige head. Bottle aroma is sour with a tart raspberry note. Sniffing head gives much less information - primarily berry. Flavor is sour with sweet raspberry. Sour wins. Very tart. The berry stays to the end. Grabs the mouth strongly. One of a kind.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Vollmundiger, etwas dumpfer Fruchtantrunk. Dabei ist die Fruchtigkeit natürlich und nicht übertrieben, etwas alkoholisch, adstringend. Feinperlige Kohlensäure. Fruchtig bleibend, die Säuerlichkeit steigt wenig. Konstantes rundes Bier. 10/12/11/13/11/13

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A: The pour is a very muddled brown color with plenty of red highlights and a short lived off-white head on top. Not particularly attractive in any sense.
S: A very pungent raspberry aroma, as you would expect, which provides a nice mix of tartness and acidity with a mild sweetness. There is a nice contribution from the oak as well, along with a very light funkiness, and plenty of lactic acidity and only slight vinegar notes.
T: The flavors mimic the nose quite well. The raspberries are certainly the star of the beer and work very nicely with a strong acidity and a minimal vinegar flavor. The oak and fruit skins provide a very nice dry and tannic quality.
M: A medium bodied beer with a puckering tartness, full carbonation, and a dry finish.
D: I’m usually not the hugest fan of the framboise variety of lambic/sour beers, but this was a really pleasant and refreshing take on it.
