Russian River Framboise for a Cure. 375ml bottle courtesy of jeff... Pours a semi-transparent light red grapefruit pour with some mild sediment existing and suspending/levitating throughout... Aroma is funkiness upfront much similar to that of beatification with an adequate raspberry following which holds up well to the aforementioned horseblanket qualities. Berries are still quite prominent and nicely balances the funk. Almost a red grapefruit like presence permeates which, from what i recall, a characteristic of beatification ... Flavors are much of the same with a genuine horseblanket like funk quality to it with a berry and red grapefruit component. Acidity high but held in check. Quite drinkable and lovely actually. Clean and well-crafted. Must try this again if/when the opportunity presents itself. Hope that Vinnie/Natalie choose to make this an annual offering. 9/4/8/4/17

375ml Bottle with a huge thanks to JohnGalt1. Pours out a cloudy pink/amber topped with a small head. Aroma was great lots of raspberry, funk, oak, vanilla, some cherries, and a nice light spice. Taste was lead buy the raspberries following a nice light grapefruit bitterness. A nice vanilla, tart, oak, and the spice is holding on. Very happy I got to try this treat.

Thanks to Keith, Pours a lovely pinkish purple hue, Aroma is dry raspberry seeds, light acidity, lots of lactic sourness, very delicate. Very sour at first, second sip reveals nice woody, raspberry fruitiness, lactic sourness, very minerally and chalk dry finish. No acetic qualities, very light and playful. A wonderfully sour, drinkable beer. Very refined and delicate, absolutely delicious.

A-pours a mostly tranparent bright orange color with tons of sediment floating around in it. The head is white, dense and creamy leaving a fair bit of lace. S-the funk is right up front, a dry woody manure, oak and a touch of vanilla transition to citric rind and tasty vibrant sour raspberries behind. T-the taste is more muted than the nose. the funk is slighlty toned down. the manure funk is up front, the oak is there and very light, all the flavors are slightly muddled as the sourness is assertive in the back mixed with tart raspberry and biting lemon. the sourness is slightly strong and the fruit isnít as vibrant as the nose. still decently integrated and nicely sour with a fair bit of funk. M-lighter in body and lively on the palate. the finish is very dry and the sourness accentuates that. the body is slightly syrupy and grainy on the palate. D-the nose is fantastic and has a great balanced and integration of juicy fruits and nicely done funk. the flavor falls slightly short of that in that the fruits are more mild and the funk is slighly muddled. still reasonably good flavor, the balance is there it just seems to become ever so slightly messy.

Bottle at the double 5k tasting courtesy of Ryan. Pours a hazed ruby brown with a thin white head. Fuzzy raspberry candy and vanilla. Medium bodied, smooth and sweet. Funky sour raspberries, toast and warm acid. Tingly long acid with a big sourness at the end. Awesome stuff. Thanks again Ryan.

3fourths (7879) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 3, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2012 375ml bottle into crystal stemware. vibrant lactic acid cream aroma; fatty and round; raspberries provide just-noticeably sweet fruit pulp bounce, while bone dry chalk, minerals and gravel wash the nose in peppery acid. nourishing full and bright body with perfectly balanced carbonation and acid to provide pillowy bounce. wonderfully quenching with a dry and rigid finish. expertly produced and desperately begging to be made again. thank you ken.

Bottle shared by Ryan at his and Paulís 5000th celebration, thanks! Poured a cloudy pinkish orange with a white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was full of raspberries (mainly tart, hint of sweetness) with a nice funk note and a bit of acid. Flavor started with acidic raspberries and mellows to more of a tartness with a funk note.

5000 rating with Rciesla. Pours a pinkish violet, hazed with thinning head to a film. Aroma is big tart pitty raspberries- not fresh juice, but, tart rasp, with tart sour cherry, mineral, gooseberry, herbs vegetal, bright lactic acidity with no aceto but still very sour, - not as sour as veritas 07 though. Flavor is sour peach, raspberry, tart tannic grapeskin, pitty mineral raspberry seed, slate, grassy, lemon lime acidity, citric and lactic acid especially at the end. Dry, bright fresh acidity- older aged fruits, mineral and killer acidity all around. Great Stuff.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2011 #5000. Pours a blush medium orange marrone body with a light white head. Aromatically dry, bretty, light sour raspberries. Light pit and skins. Soft with a dry raspberry tartness, pitty with raspberry seeds. Hints of citrus with light grapefruit tones. Low acidity with a very nice raspberry drying finish. Absolutely superb and well worth the wait. This is fucking incredible i would drink the shit out of this if i could but iím happy to share this with the people that have been with me all the way. Cheers.

Rating number 4700. Bottle thanks to thirdeye11. Pours with a hazed strawberry blond hued body with a white head. Aroma is excellent: fresh fruit, raspberries, kirschwasser, huge funk, huge acidity. Really nice, bright and fresh! Taste: Huge tartness and acidity up front. Fruity and finishes dry. Funky, oaky tannic. Raspberry pits. Easily every bit as good as Beatification with Raspberries sounds...and then some. Really a great showing of fresh vibrant malic acid from the fruit with the lactic acid of the bugs. Dry, lively and fresh. Amazing!
