3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Courtesy of hopscotch. Pours a deep amber pinkish color, with a tiny white head. Smells of tart fruitiness, definitely a little raspberry and strawberry in there, and hints of acidity and sourness. The flavor is sour sweet. Lots of raspberry, strawberry, and grape as well. Finally some decent carbonation with these Upland lambics. First one Ive tried that was carbonated sufficiently. Made it much more enjoyable than the previous 2 Ive tried.

Big raspberry framboise character in nose and taste. The mouthfeel a little thick. Other than that there is raspberries barnyard funk and tartness. Enjoyable for sure.

Thanks! 750 ml. split / sampled @’t Schooltje. 10.9.13 Vintage. Deep dark raspberry, vibrant, no head. Nose is insane raspberry, puckering, strongly lactic, lemon sourness quality to the fruit but very vibrant, real fruit, all the same, touch mineral,… Taste is same amazing, vibrant lactic, touch vinegar, lemon puckering raspberry, very tart & puckering but the fruit is immense, lingering sourness with some raspberry pits in the back,… Body is puckering ,drinks amazingly well despite the sourness. Really awesome.

Rasberries and cherries in aroma. Fruits came through in flavor and the added wild yeast made this grew exceptional. Dry and fruity finish.

UPDATED: AUG 19, 2015 A: tons of rich raspberry jam aroma. Very slight funk. A: dark red color with non existent head. gushed slightly. T: super sour backed by a nice fresh raspberry flavor.

Very acidic O: good frambois but not great. Good flavor from the raspberries and sour sour sour. Wanted some more funk and nuances

Refrigerated 75 cl brown bottle, 11/20/2013, corked and capped, from shrubber85, poured into a tulip. Translucent deep red with small pink head which dissipates quickly. Aroma is sour raspberry, medium body, medium/light carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is sour raspberry, oak, and rich raspberry. A shade not quite as sour as the persimmon, but very good.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Batch 3/10 bottled 11/20/2013.
Aroma is rather fruity with quite a bit of jammy raspberry aroma. moderate acidity. Light oak notes and tropical fruit hiding in the background with medium light citrus. A touch acetic.
Pours a slightly cloudy, bright, vibrant, red with a bit of a purple hue. Small pink head recedes quickly to the edges. Faint lacing and no legs.
Flavor is exceedingly acidic; I should have saved some of the Tartuffe to cut this with. Moderate raspberry upfront with hints of oak and tropical fruit. As your palate adjusts the acidity becomes a bit more tolerable and you can pick up citrus fruit and more raspberry. Low bitterness, also a bit acetic.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Medium low acidic astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, this beer is way too sour. The acidity is really dialed up and somewhat chemically and acetic. Would make a nice raspberry vinagrette.
