A: Really raspberry red, even a pink head to boot. Retention is somewhat minimal but lacing isn't bad. High carbonation is visible.

S: REAL raspberries. nothing artificial smelling here. Deliciously tart smelling.

T: Raspberries and more raspberries. Tart even bordering on pretty sour. Good beer base that highlights the fruit. Not overdone and it doesn't taste like a wine cooler as some poorer fruit beers do. No artificial tasting either which is a departure from most of the sub par fruit beers I've had. Hops are minimal as are bitterness letting the fruit really shine and take on it's true fold, unmuddled.

M: Nice carbonation leaning towards the higher side. Moderate to thin body.

O: This is a fruit beer i can get along with. Not that overly chemically, artificial mess that fruit beers usually end up as. Recommend to someone who believes fruit beers are a boring style as i once did.

look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours garnet/ruby with a very quickly fading head.
Nose shows massive raspberry with soft confectionery notes. Lovely stuff despite being so focussed on the one aspect.
Amazing flavours, heaps of tart raspberry with a great acidic hit. Some gooseberry notes too and a port note.
Nice moderately high carbonation.

Bottle Date 05/2013

A - pours a bright amber/rose pink color with a finger of somewhat intense pink head. Retention and lacing are relatively decent.

S - Tons of raspberry/tart fruit as you would expect from a framboise.

T - Quite sour! Vinegar, ripe/tart raspberries. Definitely an intensely sour Berliner with some wheaty thickness. When allowing to sit on my palate the vinegar becomes quite intense and pushes the limits a little bit (for the style) but in a very good way. Finish is very tart/sour.

M - Medium bodied+, especially for the style, quite sticky on the tongue, good carbonation but the mouth feel holds strong. Again really liking everything about this beer in a major way

O - Would love to have a few more of these! Really awesome lambic style berliner
