UPDATED: JUN 21, 2015 2011-2012 vintage, aged a couple of years. Deep cherry red. No head. The aroma is deep raspberry, with woody elements, and some sugary sweetness. Very dry, quite woody, and it has a lot of berry character, leading to a long, dry finish.
1986 Vintage, sampled May 2004
Orangey-amber colour. Funky aroma - stinky cheese, raspberry and earth. So well-integrated you can’t help nosing the beer over and over again. Slight acetic hint to the big acid body. Hugely complex - raspberries, nuts, leather and oak. Extremely well-balanced. Some sips you’re drinking a collection of great flavours, other sips you’re drinking just one great flavour. Drinking this is like peeling back layers of time as the beer slowly reveals itself. Outstanding. I gave this a 4.9, but fresh examples aren’t near that level.
Sample of the 2014 vintage at Lizardville Westerville on 5/17/17. These guys always put on the best events for Columbus Craft Beer Week. Pours a clear reddish amber with a thin beige head. Aroma of funk, malt, raspberry and sour, peppery yeast. Malt and funk flavor with raspberry fruitiness before a sour raspberry and lemon finish. Truly exquisite. I’m more of a cherry fan than raspberry, but side by side with Intense Red, this one won. Dogbrick (13010) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 31, 2017
Sample at Lizardville Westerville during the Sour Beer Night event on 05/17/2017. Hazy burgundy color with a medium off-white head that burns away steadily to a film. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of raspberry, funky yeast and malt. Light to medium body with a funky barnyard character and flavors of tart raspberry, yeast and biscuit malt. The finish is tart and funky with a lingering berry aftertaste. Good beer all around. MartyW (278) - DENMARK - MAY 27, 2017

2014 bottle at home from bradleys cork (40EUR, pricey but worth it!)
zebra (2138) - Illinois, USA - APR 28, 2017
Briliant scarlet pink, lively carbonation and pillowy pink tinged marshmallow-like head. Immediate tart and juicy raspberry on the nose. Bright and tart, hay, touch of manure, lactic acidity, lemon juice, but always returning to the juicy raspberry yjay makes me such a fan of this style. A little acidic and cantillon like in finish, think i still prefer the boon vintage framboise & lou pepe but perhaps need to do a side to side. nevertheless a delicious beer - looking forward to trying some of their other fruited lambics at toer de gueze.
750-ml bottle from 18thstreetbrewery. huge raspberry nose, gorgeous cloudy strawberry raspberry cranberry color, fruity, tart raspberry cranberry, creamy, sweet finish, paired great with brisket, earthy after that. rating #1! witt (32) - Elsinore, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2017
Beautiful ruby color, no head.
Aroma is raspberry bomb,
Taste is raspberry raspberry raspberry, raspberry jelly with a very well balanced sour finish. Almost candy like. McWorta (1627) - LUXEMBOURG - FEB 7, 2017
Light opalescent with a ruby dark red colour and a light pink delicate frothy head.
Aromas of ripe raspberries, wet wood, light funk, earthy notes develop - rather complex yet round. Fine carbonation with a lightly slick yet slender body. Lovely ripe red fruit sweetness with a fine fruity, woody acidity. Very harmonic and something very enjoyable to savour - lasting light fruity-fry finish. Enjoyed this a lot.

2014 bottle shared at DHVL. Dark pinkish color with off-white head. Aroma is raspberry, jam, some breadcrust, very fruity, wood. Taste is straight raspberry, oily mouthfeel, very jammy, but also a touch of vinegar coming through. Great and well-balanced stuff. pushkinwow (2789) - Ottawa, CANADA - JAN 15, 2017
2014 bottle from Ian opened up at the 2016 Ottawa Year-end Gathering. Murky red with no head. Funky with a light tartness, strawberry and raspberry, a bit musty. More Cantillon like in the enamel peeling and fairly acidic, mild+ carbonation and full body, quite fruity but have to be honest that it wasn’t what I was expecting. We have one more bottle to open at some point, hoping some age bring it back to 3F deliciousness.
