MPA (979) - Amager (form. Nrrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - MAY 26, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2009 Bottle. Reddish with a pink head. Lovely aroma of raspberries and sweetness. Flavour is full of raspberries too and has such a good balance between sweetness and sourness. Oh, so drinkable! Re-rating (before 8-4-8-3-16). Added to flavour: Light tartness, less raspberriy in flavour than aroma, sparkling, citrus and a light dryness. Nice sommerbeer because of the lightness.

fonefan (45155) - VestJylland, DENMARK - MAY 23, 2007
Bottel. 37.5 cl. Light unclear red amber color with a small to average fizzy fair lacing mostly diminishing off-white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy raspberry, light sweet and sour. Flavor is moderate sweet and moderate sweet sour, with a average duration. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is soft.

MiP (15343) - Snderborg, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2007
Bottle, 5%. Nice, sweet raspberry aroma with an acidic finish. Almost clear prune red colour, small head. The flavour starts off with a lot of raspberry. Later, it turns bitter, as if from the berries or seeds. Finishes on a nice, woody, berry bitterness. Both the aroma and flavour have a little butter. Not sour or acidic. Solid.

Girardin Framboise 1882. Bottle. Pours a red-brown colour with an average lasting head. Flowery aroma with raspberries and sweet oak. Dry sharp oaky flavour with raspberries, some sourness and wheat.

gnoff (9651) - Mlndal, SWEDEN - APR 15, 2007
(375 ml bottle at The Rover, Gteborg) Shady brown color, small creamy tan head. Sweet wild raspberry scent. Acidic fruity taste. Medium mouthfeel, low bitterness. Quite allright, but nothing really special.

weeare138 (936) - Collegeville, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 2, 2007
Thanks to hopdog for breaking this goodie out at the tasting... Appears a transparent pink-toned red with a small white cap that slowly fades into a small cloud spirals. Light lacing is left around the glass. Smell is of cran-raspberry juice with freshly mashed berries that are evident from the first inhale. I found it to be really quite addictive. Taste is of creamy vanilla, fruit punch, and rasperry with cranberries resounding in a slightly tart flavor. Mouthfeel is light-medium bodied, vinuous, and semi-dry on the finish.

hopdog (11774) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2007
Bottle. Poured a reddish-brown color with a small sized red/pink head. Aromas of fresh-juicy-hairy raspberries, cranberries, and also reminded me of Kool-Aid (in a good way!). I really like the berry quality in the aromas. Tastes of tart raspberries, all around berries, and some wood. Lightly tart finish.

egajdzis (6195) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2007
Poured a hazy, ruby red color with a small, pinkish head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of fresh raspberries, borderlining on cranberries, with a bit of light funk, low wild yeast presence. Taste of more raspberries, very fruity, with light vanilla, oak, and a tart, dry finish.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 25, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2007 In short: Variable beer. Either a funky raspberry lambic or an overly clean raspberry lambic.
How: Bottle drank in Belgium 2006 (funky). Batch (2007) imported in quebec (too clean)
The look: Cloudy redish-copper with a long lasting medium off-white head.
In long: Funky 2006 bottle (4.0/5): I could sense the Brett on the start. Good start. Initial impression is a pleasant balance between brettyness and sourness. Raspberries flavour is not dominant, which is a good thing. Funky body full of hay/straw/etc. Finish brings in a welcomed tartness without loosing the fruity sourness. A superior raspberry fruit beer that is only a little bit behind the much more reputed 3 Fonteinen Framboos that I had a few days later. Underrated. 2007 bottle (3.5/5): Compared to the above: softer, cleaner, not funky at all, almost sweet. Highly drinkable fruit beer. I still like it a lot but this is not the same thing as I drank a year before. The raspberries are more dominant in this one. My Canadian food guide says I need between 10 and 15 servings of fruit everyday. Keep those Girardins coming.

sayravai (4707) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 15, 2006
(Bottled) Slightly hazy, ruby red color with a medium, pinkish and lacy head. Slightly sweet, very natural aroma of raspberries (with stones). The flavor is exactly like the aroma, with natural raspberries and some acidity, plus dry bitterness from the stones. Light to medium-bodied palate with slightly fizzy carbonation. A quite decent, although sweetish framboise.
