Pour out of 375 mL bottle, slightly hazy pink pour with no head, aroma brought notes of big fresh picked raspberry, tart lemon, fruit with some vanilla, biscuit, vinous raspberry and some awesome earthy notes, very clean, slight grape in there. Taste is a nice sharp acidic lemon, tart raspberry, cherry, vanilla comes in with some more acid, some hints of biscuit, finishing fairly tart, very clean, little to no funkiness.

Pours a bright pink color with no head into my ccb snifter. Aroma of raspberries, oak and funk. Taste follows the nose with raspberries up front then sour notes and funk, then oak while finishing back with the raspberries. Tart but not crazy which makes this highly drinkable. Overall this is my favorite framboise to date!

Shared from bottle. Poured a pink-red color with a slightly foamy pink head. Aroma was tart and funky raspberries. Flavor was funky notes, with a touch of tart sour berries. I enjoyed it, but my palate either wasnít at its prime or something because it was good, but not out of this world.

375ml bottle from a trade although it was a while ago and I canít remember who it was - so thanks!! Fairly bright clear red with no head. Very sour, Chardonnay, some tartness, raspberries, some vinegar that gets you at the top of the nose for some reason. Opened with a huge pop but moderate carbonation, full and huge sour / tart body, vinegar gets you at the sides of the mouth, little bit of fruit, becomes very dry. Excellent beer - if you have a chance to try this do so.

Bottle. Pinkish/reddish pour with a pink head. Raspberries, oak, and funk aromas. Sour berries, funk, and oak, with just a hint of vinegar and citrus. Crisp and tart with outstanding balance and perfect carbonation. Simply outstanding...

Bottle tried side by side with temptation. Aroma of big bright clean raspberries, leather,musty cellar, lactic acid. Taste is bright yogurt acid, and tangy raspberry fruit, and dry oak. Less funk, less lemon, less complex than temptation. Solid. Clean. Bigtime berry fruit presence. Nice clean leather. Real nice.

Thanks Shawn for bringing this to my cabin. 2011 batch poured at cellar temp into a Duvel Tulip.

A - Half-Finger white to red colored head that dissipated very fast to a minor glass-edge line of bubbles. The beer is a ruby red color. No haze, not a ton of carbonation. Very tasty looking.

S - Temptation with Raspberries. Thatís the best way to explain this beer because thatís exactly what this is. Smells wonderful, wild, sour, lambic and delicious.

T - Huge sour raspberries taste. Very wild yeast taste and lots of white wine sauvignon blanc? Hard to tell. The sour rocks my tongue and makes it hurt with sour intensity. Great feeling.

M - 80/20 carbonation, very dry finish, light bodied. Very drinkable.

O - This is amazing. Itís funky and wild and bitter. Remarkable and wonderful. A+

I brought this one to our post bottle share tasting. Batch #2. A - Pours hazy bright red with a really nice one and a half finger tall white head leaving little to no lace down the glass. Goes pretty dead quickly, leaving only a thin white ring of head around the outside of the glass. S - Smells of sharp raspberry sweetness, musty earth, light funk and some lactic sourness round things out. The raspberries are nice and fresh, very nice. T - Starts off with plenty of fresh picked raspberries slowly giving way to hints of light funk, damp earth and some lactic sourness. The sweetness is balanced well with the funk, lingering on the pallet for some time. M - Not overly sour or funky like other wilds. Smooth body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Still plenty of pucker with some dryness. O - I really enjoyed this one. Temptation is one of my favorite wildís from Russian River and it worked very well as the base for this beer. Awesome stuff for sure.

Poured a bright pink/magenta, with no head. Smells of funk, yeast, tartness, slight raspberry, and vegetal. Taste is tart from the start and finishes moderately sour. A little sweetness through the middle, thin body, and medium carbonation. Not RRís best offering, but pretty tasty.
