_angst_ (5008) - Göteborg, - FEB 4, 2013
375 ml bottle. Can’t remember where I bought it. Pours hazy brownish pinkish red with a frothy and fizzy pinkish white head that is rather quick to dissipate while leaving a small trace on the glass. Smell is sour, fruity tart, tiny sweet and acetic with raspberries, crackers, hay, horse-blanket, leather, lemon juice, raspberry vinegar, red currants and unripe green berries. Taste is slightly sweet, slightly sour, tar and fruity with raspberries, hay, lemon juice, crackers, lemon zest, raspberry vinegar, dry soil, wood, horse-blanket, barnyard and leather. Mouthfeel is slightly dry, fruity tart, tiny mouth-puckering and light bodied. Finish is tart with raspberries, lemon juice, hay, crackers, lemon zest and horse-blanket.

Flasa od Beermalade. Bledsia jantarova farba. Vona malinoveho sirupu. Jemne trpka. Chut ako ovocna dren malinova. Sladke, vodove. Lambic to veru moc nie je.

Tap at Brewdog Tallinn, November 9th 2017 (thanks Marduk). Pours reddish pink with some white foam on the top. Nose is just perfect grandma's raspberry jam. Lots of fruit character and no cloying sweetness. Taste is reaffirming what could be understood from the nose, lots of fruity raspberry, good creamy body, not too acidic but rather soft and easygoing. Very enjoyable.

Juks (1066) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 10, 2017
Tap at BrewDog Tallinn. Deep purpur colour, pink head. Beautiful colour! Aroma of sweet raspberry jam, marmalade, yogurt? Tastes sweet, raspberry, sugary. Some tartness. Acid only in very late aftertaste after warming up. In blind taste I wouldn't even consider it to be lambic. It's really good fruit beer, but really weak lambic. And that's why overall score goes down. Name it to fruit beer and I'd drink it.

Marduk (8404) - Reval, ESTONIA - NOV 9, 2017
Tap. Hazy red-pink color. Medium size, bubbly pink color. Raspberry jam, sour, acidic in aroma. Raspberry jam, sourish, sweet, bit acidic in taste. It is like fermented raspberry jam on drugs. I like it.

The_Osprey (9157) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2017
Keg at CBC Brixton as Oud Beersel Framboise, 5%. First impression is just how jammy the aroma is, even from distance. Pours a hazy brick red, translucent bordering on opaque with a huge creamy pink head that leaves full lacing. Aroma is jammy dodgers all over, then raspberry filled doughnuts and some jolly rancher. So jammy. Body is light but quite rounded with tingly carbonation. Taste is again jammy dodger biscuits, thin jam on bread, stewed raspberry and general fruit cordial made up with sodawater. This is a pretty fun beverage to try. It's definitely sweet but I wouldn't say overly so. The complexity isn't really there. Quite tasty though. (7-4-5-3-15=3.4)

375 mL bottle. The pour is a darker ruby brown color with a lack of head and a seemingly no lace as it falls. The aroma is really sweet there is a hint of chocolate and a strong jam with a light alcohol and no real bright fruitiness. The flavor is much of the same. The jamminess works pretty well, but there is a sharp chocolate thing happening on the end. I'm not too crazy about it. The mouth feel is light and watery with a lack of carbonation and a lingeringly sweet chocolate and an interesting fruit. This isn't bad, but I needs quite a bit of help. 6 3 5 3 12

Bottle shared with Gus. Aroma is raspberry jam, some yeast, slightly tart, eh, strange raisin chocolate thing too. Appearance is dark dark red, thin light pink head, hazy. Taste is raspberry jam, milk chocolate, dry, slightly tart, no real funk. Mouthfeel is medium body, super light carbonation, dry watered down raspberry jam aftertaste. Overall, it's ok.

3.5
Turtles (2967) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2017
Keg @ Bishops Arms, Hornsgatan. Clear red, lasting white head, good lacing. Aroma is all about sweet and fresh raspberries. Mouthfeel on the sweet side, crisp, mild carbonation. Taste is also all about fresh raspberries, taste just like that perfect ripe sweet raspberry with a tiny tartness in the background. Not bad at all, as far as fruit and berries go.

3.8
Gurthnar (6199) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 28, 2017
Tap at Beer Geek Bar. Lots of raspberries all over the place, lightly lactic as well. Underlying lambic character does not come through very much, only lightly and simply. Also only lightly sour, moderate sweetness of raw fruit. Very good, but too much fruit and too little funk complexity and intensity for me.
