UPDATED: JUN 24, 2022 0.375l bottle. Blend n.75, season 17/18, bottled in september 2018.
Light reddish brown color with very minimal off-white head which disappears quickly. Aroma of strong cherry with some raspberry, funk and sour. Taste is tart with raspberry which sour cherries backs up nicely. Finishes dry and sour. Medium body, average carbonation. Good. midovark (5556) - Alkmaar, NETHERLANDS - JUN 10, 2022
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2022 Bottle pour at Kraft. Szegyen nem szegyen ezt pont megint nem jegyzetelgettem, csak pontoztam a nagy porges kozepette. Mindenkepp vissza kellene majd terni ehhez ha lesz ra lehetoseg. coachd (2693) - O'Fallon, Missouri, USA - JUN 7, 2022
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2022 Strong cherry aroma with some funk. Very nice light red color. More tart than expected with good cherry and raspberry flavor. The finish is sharp and short. Good, but I'm not sure about 100/100. Zlotta (8227) - Hagen, GERMANY - APR 16, 2022
UPDATED: APR 16, 2022 0.375 l bottle from 'Keepin it hoppy', No. 57 1819, bottled in March 2019. Hazy, pale reddish with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, white head. Slightly sweetish, sourish, intensely fruity aroma of raspberry, redcurrant, lots of lemon and light wood. Slightly sweet, gently sour, rather fruity taste of raspberry, redcurrant, some lemon, light vinegar and a touch of wood, followed by a medium long, gently tart, moderately funky, quite woody-dry and a bit vinegary finish. Medium body, gently astringent, smooth and slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very decent Framboise, quite rough and rustic, somewhat vinegary unfortunately. Not as complex as expected, yet rather balanced. mansquito (14825) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAR 20, 2022
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2022 Bottle at Grand Delancey, 17/18: pours reddish with small head. Aroma is loads of raspberry, general berriness, mellow funkiness. Taste is moderately sour, somewhat sweet, delightful berry notes. Raspberry is really the ideal proportion here. Lingering finish. Dry notes. Quite good.

UPDATED: DEC 25, 2021 Aus der Flasche (Hommage Bio Frambozen Blend No.57 Saison 2018/19 - bottled 27.03.2019/bbe 26.10.2039) im 2021-11 getrunken. Dieses wunderschöne rote Lambic kommt einben tollen Himbeeraroma daher. Am Gaumen überrascht die eher moderate Säure und gar keine Bitterkeit aus Fasslagerung oder direkt von den Himbeerkerne. Wunderbar ausbalanciert dieses Lambic. tex3006 (36) - - DEC 11, 2021
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2021 From a 375 ml bottle packaged on Sept ‘18. Headless hazy reddish. Aroma of strawberry raspberry. Medium body with berry vinegar flavor. Little/no carbonation. Not an aficionado of sours so I’m not a good judge but this beer wasn’t for me. nathanvc (5084) - Gent, BELGIUM - SEP 25, 2021
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2021 21 August 2021. At Gents Bierfestival. Cheers to the Ghent beer crew!
18/19, blend No° 57. Hazy red, no head. Strong aroma of raspberry, unripe strawberry, lemon peel, sour cherry, sour plum, vinegar, grapes. Taste has very sour plum, raspberry & lemon acid, funky straw, softly lactic-yoghurty but leaning more towards sourdough. Tart, acidic, fruity finish, very sour red fruits, plum, some woody tannins with an earthy rhubarb note. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Very complex, rich in fruitiness with the right amount of 'wildness'T. Excellent. huineman (1239) - Madrid, SPAIN - SEP 7, 2021
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2021 375 bottle from Lambik-O-droom, bottled June 17, 2020. Sipped away along with my old man, August 31, 2021, at the Tangla Hotel's terrace, Brussels, in a white wine glass, watching the sun set down beyond the Woluwe-Saint-Lambert windmill. That was an evening to remember.
This is a very interesting lambic, much more so taking into account that a couple days earlier, on our visit to 3F, we had the 2014 Framboos, and you can draw some comparisons. To begin with, I thought this was going to be a minor experience compared to that, but in no way: they were quite similar. I know this was much younger and the bottle was half the volume, but the hype surrounding Framboos is kind of unfair towards Hommage, IMHO.
This is a headless, cloudy, vermillion-hued lambic with some orange glittering and evident bubbles. Aroma is quite intense: acacia gum, cider, wild berries, apricot stone, balsamic vinegar... Wow. Mouthfeel is bone dry, light and tart. Bitterer than expected, leading to an ages-long finish with renewed dryness and sourness. Amazing (and it had only aged for a year in the bottle. Wait till I get my hands on an older one.) Syfher (1233) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 13, 2021
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2021 Bottle of 75cl, in a Lambiek glass; from the fridge. Drinked @home.
We're in front of a pink/red wonderful gueuze/lambiek. Really great aroma and taste.
