3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
As soon as I started pouring I was struck by the raspberry jam aroma. It clued me in that this one wouldn’t be the sour lambic that I wanted but I can’t deny the appeal of such an aroma. The appearance was grand. All dark and stuff with one of those huge heads that makes a column in the middle and then collapses on himself. Alas, this is just a decently made but overly sweet raspberry soda lambic. I sort of like them but I don’t really find them satisfying. I can’t deny that there’s some good craftsmanship behind these things but whatever it’s boring.

Bottled beer. Strong raspberry flavour. Great sharpness and non of the artificial sweetness that comes with the more commercial gueuzes.

pours hazy dark copper-reddish with a minimal purplish head, some retention. raspberry purée, hint of wheat, nice funk and wood, red plums and other red fruitiness, good balance of lactic/citric acidity. moderate sweetness. average carbonation, decent balance, light body - some texture, grassy-earthy finish. was hoping less sweetness but it’s a nice offering.

Bouteille de 375ml, bouchon de liège. Meilleure avant le mois de mai 2016. Bière rouge très foncée à la limite du brun. Pas de mousse, on dirait un Coke flat. Au nez de jolies framboises, des canneberges, du bois et une touche d’acidité. La bouche est moyenne, de l’acidité, un peu de fruits, pas de sucre mais quelque chose de désagréable fin de bouche.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (375 ml). Deep red with a small white head and little lacing. Aroma of raspberry jam, other red fruits, light tartness and hints of sweetness. Taste is moderately sweet with raspberry jam and light tartness. Medium body. Good carbonation. It’s not a really complex or really sour Framboise, but it’s still really enjoyable and drinkable. Good Framboise.

110513. Bottle at home. Pours deep amber with a pinkish head. Aroma raspberries. Lots of it. More like a fruit than a lambic. Way too juicy for my taste.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
8oz draught. Beige head dissolves in a minute to a thin covering over a rust and coppery body which a direct backlight reveals is really a pleasing ruby red. Aroma is fresh red berries like raspberry and strawberry some being tart (as in not quite ripe) and fresh apple - really appetizing if you like tart fruit. Taste is salty with mild sweetness and sourness and mild bitterness. There is a not-too-subtle bitter finish. Palate is lively, fine carbonation like soda pop (not the taste - the feel). This is a very well-crafted beer.
