4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Had at Loganís Oceanside beer tasting with AlohaC, and Hair, and Matt, and Ken, Jeff, Colleen, Bill, and others. Wow, great barnyard and raspberry aroma. Sweet excellent. One of my favorites of the night. I feel guily rating gems like this, because my rating is always way different than otherís ratings. Funky lambics rule!

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at the Brick Store Pub. It had about a half inch head when it got to me and that didnít last long. It was a deep amber/ruby color. The aroma was overwhelmingly raspberry. And it was very nice! The up front taste is the same as the smell and then this fades slowly as you swallow into that lambic taste on the end. Makes you want more. And Iím going back this Saturday to get some.

Excelleny Framoise, sour notes of fruit and rotting wood. Like a forest floor dampened by unicorn tears...

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2012 12.7 oz green bottle. "Best before" 06.03.2012.
Pours a murky brown-fuschia with an odd colored pink/brown head. Not exactly a looker.
Smell is amazing though, just a nasal pounding of fresh raspberry, seeds and all. It is amazing.
Taste follows with an awesome kick of raspberry paired with some typical sour gueuze funk and a nice oak overtone. It isnít very sour, mostly tart raspberry. The malts are under toned with the yeast and raspberry bursting on the tongue.
The mouthfeel has a good carbonation and finishes nicely dry. The drinkability is of godlike proportions.
Framboise is one of my favorite styles, as is traditional gueuze. This brings a bit of both very nicely in a highly drinkable brew.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
375ml corked bottle. This is one complex Framboise. Murky brownish-red color. Sweet with an almost raspberry puree finish to it. Some wheaty farmhouse stuff going on way in the background. The alcohol helps round out the beer as well. Sour and rich. Awesome beer.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle: Poured a deep pink color lambic with a medium light pink head with good retention and light lacing. Aroma consists of fresh raspberries with lightly sweet undertone. Taste is very refreshing with taste of fresh raspberries with light tart notes. Lambic is not present but not overly dominant as presence of raspberries is huge. Body is about average with good carbonation. Very nice drink with huge refreshing notes.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The beer eructs for the 375ml green bottle into my snifter glass a limpid deep red with a decorous creamy light pinkish head that after its dematerialization leaves a fragile sheet of lace to enshroud the glass. Nose has a delicate sweet aroma of raspberries, with a nice tart background, a real foreshadowing of things to come; start is sweet, with a pleasant feel to the palate. Finish is sturdy in its acidity, the raspberries quite evident, and the aftertaste a tart dry that makes you pucker a bit, but what a treat, and to think at one time I disliked Lambicís.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
375 ml corked and caged bottle poured a clear reddish brown with a small slowly diminishing pinkish head. Aromas of raspberry, mustiness and leather. Palate was light bodied and a bit tart. Flavors of tart raspberry, some leather notes, some barnyard and a hint of mustiness with a lingering tart finish.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
375 ml corked and caged bottle from my personal beer Mecca: Knightly Spirits. Poured into a flute, this beauty of a beer displayed a minimal off-white head and a very attractive honey/amber color. Strong carbonation is evident from rocketing bubbles that yearn for freedom. An aroma of sour raspberries envelopes the room upon opening. Right away, a cavity-stinging tartness awakens my taste buds to raspberry, sour apple, and apricot flavors. The tartness functions to smooth out any overpowering sweetness typical for other lambics. Light body and lively carbonation. Quite delicious and refreshing with the sourness I crave. I can’t wait to open the two gueuze I have from this brewery.
