Had at Logan’s Oceanside beer tasting with AlohaC, and Hair, and Matt, and Ken, Jeff, Colleen, Bill, and others. Wow, great barnyard and raspberry aroma. Sweet excellent. One of my favorites of the night. I feel guily rating gems like this, because my rating is always way different than other’s ratings. Funky lambics rule! bob_w (373) - new york, New York, USA - FEB 4, 2015
Assertive, fresh raspberry aroma. Hints at sweetness. But in the flavor, no real sweetness, thankfully. Rich, fresh, tart, dry raspberry fruit flavor. Appropriately thin body. Refreshing and delicious. Clean finish. rebelbrewer (125) - Lithonia, Georgia, USA - APR 27, 2006
On tap at the Brick Store Pub. It had about a half inch head when it got to me and that didn’t last long. It was a deep amber/ruby color. The aroma was overwhelmingly raspberry. And it was very nice! The up front taste is the same as the smell and then this fades slowly as you swallow into that lambic taste on the end. Makes you want more. And I’m going back this Saturday to get some. nnck (5) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - OCT 1, 2006 does not count
Excelleny Framoise, sour notes of fruit and rotting wood. Like a forest floor dampened by unicorn tears... crossovert (13080) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 22, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2012 12.7 oz green bottle. "Best before" 06.03.2012.
Pours a murky brown-fuschia with an odd colored pink/brown head. Not exactly a looker.
Smell is amazing though, just a nasal pounding of fresh raspberry, seeds and all. It is amazing.
Taste follows with an awesome kick of raspberry paired with some typical sour gueuze funk and a nice oak overtone. It isn’t very sour, mostly tart raspberry. The malts are under toned with the yeast and raspberry bursting on the tongue.
The mouthfeel has a good carbonation and finishes nicely dry. The drinkability is of godlike proportions.
Framboise is one of my favorite styles, as is traditional gueuze. This brings a bit of both very nicely in a highly drinkable brew.

375ml corked bottle. This is one complex Framboise. Murky brownish-red color. Sweet with an almost raspberry puree finish to it. Some wheaty farmhouse stuff going on way in the background. The alcohol helps round out the beer as well. Sour and rich. Awesome beer. Boutip (6397) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 15, 2013
Bottle: Poured a deep pink color lambic with a medium light pink head with good retention and light lacing. Aroma consists of fresh raspberries with lightly sweet undertone. Taste is very refreshing with taste of fresh raspberries with light tart notes. Lambic is not present but not overly dominant as presence of raspberries is huge. Body is about average with good carbonation. Very nice drink with huge refreshing notes.
