3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Spuyten Duyvil Brett Fest. Pours a clear red with a light pink head. Aroma of raspberries, slightly medicinal. Flavor of sweet raspberries, not too sour. Similar to Lindemannís Framboise. Easy drinking (a relief from all the super sour Cantillons) and quite good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Spuyten Duyvil. Aroma of syrupy sweet raspberry in vein of a Lindemanís. Flavor turns tarter raspberry, but remains rather uninteresting throughout. Palate on the light side. A nice brew to drink on a hot day, little more.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle and on draft at Blind tiger. This is my favorite Framboise to date. Pours a murky ruby raspberry body with a pink foamy head quickly leaving only the body. Aroma and flavor is sour funky raspberries, melon, wood and leaves a dry tart finish. I enjoyed it more out of the bottle and my rating will follow as such.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
375mL bottle, best by 08 2011 (?); label is slightly illegible. Pours a hazy, deep, pitty red-raspberry color; significant pinkish head with solid retention and fine-bubbled lacing; solid, creamy bubble formation. Very nice, fresh raspberry presence in the aroma, somewhat reminiscent of a toned down NG Raspberry Tart; some mustiness and overripe red fruit apparent as well, but in the background; the dominant note is full-on raspberry with minimal tartness. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: the taste is a bit of a let-down from the aroma: solid levels of chewy, pitty raspberries and red fruit, similarly overripe; but the fruit character is a touch syrupy, the tart / sourness is mild, and thereís just a bit of a metallic twang that isnít beneficial by any means (though this seems to dissipate after the first few sips); lively, effervescent carbonation, and the below comparison to a Kir Royale (Champagne and Chambord) is spot-on: a bit syrupy, lively carbonation, some mustiness and citrus; not bad by any means, in the way that a Kir Royale can be good when the Champagne is quality and the Chambord is kept to an accentuating role; though, Iím not sure thatís what Iím primarily looking for in a framboise. Medium finish: mildly tart raspberries, plenty of mustiness, and some lingering citrus.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brickstore. Poured a very appetizing deep red with a light off white head. Highly carbonated and fruited drink. Obviously the raspberry is present and pretty aggresively so. Raspberry in the aroma and fruity, slightly sweet flavors of the fruit as well. This reminded me of a Kir Royale. Would want a little more sour and a little less fruit but whoís to complain with this being on draft?
