Fantastic raspberry aroma. Bittersweet, intense flavour - the sourness underlines the fruit, weaving a lovely tapestry.

This beer rules. It is so unbelievable in its balance. The strong fruit smell and flavor is balanced perfectly by the oak and musky aroma. its sweet, dry and funky. Amazing combination of.flavors. one of my all time favorites in both style and ever.

Red tinted brown color, nice pink bed of foam on top, great lacing. Some floaties made it into the glass while pouring. Delicious sweet/tart raspberry smell, reminiscent of raspberry licorice. The oak lends its characteristics as well but in a more subtle way. Flavor-wise, the dryness of the oak is much more prominent. Very tart, tingly in the mouth, leaves a very pleasant light fruity after taste. A+++, would drink again.

Mep3222 (423) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - JUN 10, 2014
Aroma is tart raspberries, good amount of lactic sour in the aroma. Great authentic raspberry aroma. Taste is raspberry with lots of lactic sour, maybe 8 of 10 lactic. Very pucker sour. Not nearly as sweet as you would think with how raspberry the aroma is. Much of the sugars seems to have been fermented away. This is a really great sour. Don't get as many wood complexities as other sours in this range as the raspberry dominates, but still a very good sour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Was simply called “Double Framboise” at Extreme Beer Fest 2010. Other EBF attendees are entering their ratings here. I hope we are rating the right thing.
In short: A ton of raspberries, strong tartness, acidic bite, moderate funk, fantastic brew
How: Tap at Extreme Beer Fest 2010. Multiple samples
The look: Murky red body topped by a small pink head
In long: Nose is intensely raspberry and some funky acidic notes. Taste is just that, a ton of raspberries and funky acidic notes. I couldn’t help it but to compare this beer to the wonderful New Glarus Raspberry Tart. This Framboise di Amarosa was like taking the Raspberry Tart and putting it through Jolly Pumpkin barrels or something like that to give it a funky acidic edge. Less intense on the raspberries than the Raspberry Tart but a lot more tart and sharp. Could also be compared to a Lou Pepe Framboise although obviously less “lambic” funky. A wicked beer. They only had one keg of this beer at EBF and the beer was not officially listed. Then one person told one person who told two persons who told 4 persons, etc. And before you knew it we were all rushing to get multiple samples of this amazing beer. There was none left for the session after ours. I’m so happy I got to taste many samples of this beer. Word of mouth really helped, and as usual word of armpit was totally useless.

wavers1 (872) - Notown, California, USA - APR 24, 2010
terrible, terrible bottle bomb. bottle was stored for over a week without toching, gently opened, and was left with less than 5oz of brew :( projectile to the ceiling style bomb, foamed nearly all of the beer out. now, once the beer is in the glass, its beautiful. looks like a raspberry, opaque deep red to burgandy, muddy and hazy, with chunk of white yeast like seeds. aroma is slightly sour, slightly raspberry, not offensive, but not really impressive either. just smells good, not great. taste is a lot more, more sour, more rasp, mour funk, more earth, and still blended nicely. palate is nice, seems possibly a tad flat after usinf up all its fizz upon opening, but the aftertaste and finish def leave you wanting more. i am def wanting more; a full 375ml as compared to my 150ml or so might lead me to detect more things and give it a higher score, but my glass and the bottle are empty. :/
