375ml corked and caged bottle poured into a palm tulip. Dated cage reads: LFR 06/2017 B7164 which leads me to believe that this is a 2007 vintage. A - When I popped the cork it didnt seem too lively. A quick, but even pour yielded a white head that faded quickly. Some chunks flowed into the glass even though I stopped pouring with 2 or so ounces left. First off, this beer is pretty clear. Which lets the sediment and yeast float around and become quite visible. The body is a deep purple color with bits off white yeast that are really taking their time to settle back down. S - Raspberries and sugar. Its not fake and artificial, its just like very concentrated sweet, sweet raspberry syrup. No "funk" to speak of. T - Sweet natural raspberry syrup. There is this aftertaste, that almost seems savory. I cant describe what it tastes like, but it makes the aftertaste slightly odd but still approachable. Very easy drinking, and the carbonation is quite nice. Slightly tart but certainly not sour. O - Ive picked up a few older liefmans vintages because they are priced really well, and they succeed in what they are. This isnt a lambic based traditional framboise, its an oude bruin brewed with raspberry juice. This particular vintage might be a bit past its prime, but its still refreshing and a decent fruit beer.

Not at all what I was expecting. I was expecting something brash and sweet and was intrigued by something brown and sour but eminently drinkable (if you dont mind sipping beer rather than stonking great quaffs). Tart, sour and just overtly raspberry. Quite wonderful. Why on earth was it retired?

Benzai (15092) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 23, 2011
Very very nice dark brown/red color, with a deep dark red glare coming through. Like the fruitesse framboise, thats the good part. Its not very different from that one. Again I dont like the smell and taste, and its too low carbonated.

First time i tasted this: did not like it one bit. It reminded me of wine. This was during the winter season. After that i tasted it again in summer and now i still drink this every once in a while (local pub has a few bottles left). Love the sourish taste but it also has some sweet notes.. Tastes natural, not syruppy.

skoisirius (1909) - Earth, Washington, USA - JUN 5, 2011
Again, this is another one of those brews that just completely hits the spot for me. Its not over the top, its right where it should be. Slight sour, slight fruit, slight Flemish brown, I would drink this over and over and over if it were cheaper.

2005 bottle... Bright pink body, nice pink head... Nose is sweet raspberries, a bit candyish, reminds me of a St. Louis fruit beer... Taste is just like the nose, sweet candy not overly sweet, crushable

Koelschtrinker (19399) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 17, 2011
Sehr milder Fruchtantrunk, weder sonderlich sauer noch s, hier ist gerade so viel Zucker verwendet worden um die Surlichkeit zu neutralsieren. Die Fruchtnote wird strker, eine leichte Herbe bildet sich darunter. Nach und nach kommt dann doch eine leicht Suerlichkeit zu Tage, die aber wirklich unscheinbar ist. Erfrischend, bedingt spritzig, das Bier wirkt gehemmt, ohne Zucker wrde das Bier bedeutend aromatischer und vollmundiger sein. Zum Ende milder, sffig. Danke an Kristall-Knig 9/10/11/10/13/10
