Bottle @ Plan B., cph.Christian (13670) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2008
Pours pale, lightly hazy red. Big frothy, white-pink head. Disappears rather quickly. Super fresh aroma of raspberries and light tarty funkiness. Rather spritzy mouthfeel, but a little thin. Mild, citric tartness at first. Some light (actually a bit disappointing) raspberries and a funky finish with weak caramel.
Pinkish orange with a small white head. Strong berry aroma, mostly raspberry. Dry fruity flavour, some raspberry and almond, only a little tartness. JK54B (1602) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 25, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2008 A nice and sour framboise in a 0.375 l bottle. Light red-brown color. Light taste of raspberry and also raspberry seeds. Flat carbonation. Typical sourness. mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 21, 2008
[1168-20080301] Bottle. Raspberry leafy fruit yeast aroma. Clear, bright red body with a medium-lasting foamy light pink head. Sour bready yeast and raspberry fruit flavour with a grainy finish. Medium body is a little more tart than sour. Great balance of sour and fruit, plus an excellent finish to the festival day!

Bottle, from Noel Cuveliers, Abele. Exciting start to this one. Uncaged the cork, started working the cork loose, and then left the bottle for a minute. Suddenly Bang! Foam! A bit of scrambling, and then eventually got things directed into a glass. The aroma was kind of elusive at first. Sweet, jammy...but there was something else at the edge of memory. Then I got it: donut! A maple glazed donut, the kind injected with fruit goo. Not elegant, but kind of fun. Flavor is more subtle than the aroma, sweet, but finds a balance with some nice dried raspberries. Softly tart finish. As a sweetened lambic I thought this was nicer than most. reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2008
Thought it odd that I’d not rated this but bought and rated a bottle @ Lowlander a couple months ago anyway, sure enough, as I randomly scrolled through my old phone I found a rate from Ealing BF last year. It’s actually quite interesting to see the difference in my rating style since then, however the scores were amusingly only 1 point different. Oh well, at least it’s in the upper echelon of lambic fruits and I can just combine the two. Red with an orangey hue, like anodized aluminum, with a thin white head. Nose is initially sweet raspberry but theres also some strawberry and lemon in there along with the usual lambic tartness and funk. Taste is much the same, sweet with a little balancing vinegar acidity and dryness. I’m not in any way upset that I’ve had another, I’m just left with a sinking feeling that I may have had rates on the old sim card that my ex absconded with, D’oh!

375ml via trade with Dany aka Glougoburp. Thanks dude. Shared with my gf Cyn. A good way to ease myself back into to drinking. Pours reddish with a 1 finger tan head. Nice sweet nose, a bit too juicey. Taste is sweet, but refined on certain levels. Not quite sour enough for my taste. Its alright. glad to have had it.

Bottle at ZBF 2008. Clear pink/red - white head. High raspberries, light synthetic, light acid, a bit like kids soda-pop, high drinkability, light white sugar. jercraigs (10374) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 12, 2008
2008-03-01. Bright red body with a white-pink head (3+). Sweet raspberry fruit aroma. (7+) Similar bold raspberries in the flavour, tart-sour raspberries throughout. Fruit dominates the flavour, which I actually sort of like in a framboise. (7+) Average to light palate suits the beer. Very good. Quaffable and refreshing, emphasis on the tart raspberry rather than sour lambic character.
