From tytoanderso, I never actually had this before. It pours with a dark dark pink, almost reddish color. It has a small head that turns into a thin halo lacing. The aroma is all raspberry, very strong, pretty sweet, and kind of natural. Its got that raspberry sourness but I do not get any wild yeast sourness. Its still nice of course. Taste is still pretty sweet with light oakiness and some of that natural raspberry sourness. Oak is felt most in the aftertaste. I like it, its not ultra impressive, a bit better than the Girardin Framboise, decent stuff. No sediment, completely filtered (I am guessing pasteurized as well since the sweetness is not being gobbled up by the wild yeast.

Pours a cranberry color with a light filmy white head. Smell is very strong raspberry fruitiness. Taste is sweet and dry, tart raspberries. Very fizzy and bubbly in the mouth. Light tart funkiness as well in the flavor. Pretty good, I thought.
