4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very attractive red slightly amber pour, reddy cream head that dissipates fairly quickly. Big nose, sour, dense raspberries. Massive burst of very sour raspberries on the pallate - delicious flavor, but perhaps not one to drink a pint of.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sample at BBF 12. Pours a pink burgandy with medium white head. Aromas and taste of strong raspberry, sweet and tart notes throughout. Further notes of wood, and acidic yeasts. Well balanced, and perfectly carbonated with a silky smooth palate. Wasnt as good as framboise for the cure, lou pep or amarosa but still a standout raspberry lambic in my book and maybe my favorite sour from Mikkeller at the event.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Pours light red, like a deep rose wine, with a pink, frothy head. Aroma is really mostly about the raspberry, very sweet and fruity, with a hint of champagne underneath all those raspberries. Taste is very sour from the start, again with lots of raspberries (perhaps they’re a bit too dominant, compared to e.g. Framboise de Amorosa). There’s a slight sweetness to balance out the sour taste. Reminds a bit of a rose champagne. Body is light and fresh but still with a presence, with medium carbonation. Nice.

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2012 at BBF 12, smells like framboos ( witch is kinda overtime, like always with sours) tastes sour, with a very nice afterglow of good framboos. i’m still not a fan of this style, but this waawed me. best of the festival, couldnt get enough of it ! need these bottles !

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ SBWF12. Poured red in color with a thin, pink head. Sour raspberry aroma, some woody/earth-like notes later on. Flavor has raspberry, candy, sweet notes, more tart towards finish. Funky. Refreshing, this just works. Medium bodied.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Borefts beer festival, de Molen, day two. Hazy rose pour with a thin white head. Lots of funky brett with raspberry backbone. I prefer the blueberry effort to this one.
