4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is stunning with vanilla, raspberries, and funk. Taste is very tart with the raspberries a bit hidden at first but strong in the finish along with the heavy tartness. Great stuff.

funky, very tart and loads of raspberries. What an awesome beer. Just have a lot of cantillon type funk in there, not to common with american sours.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by Tim! Dark Kool-Aid red colored pour, a little carbonation and an aroma of sour berries. Flavor is fresh tart berries, sour vinegar and a slight bit of sweet and funky on the aftertaste. Very nice, but not outstanding in my book.

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.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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 wasn’t at its prime or something because it was good, but not out of this world.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
375ml bottle from a trade although it was a while ago and I can’t 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.
