a beer i have missed the opportunity to try on many occasions, so a real treat to finally encounter it again. i was taken aback by its dark color, so may framboise beers are just pale wheat bases with the fruit. this appears to be a rich brown ale, deep and rich looking, with a red accent from the fruit. not what i expected but very cool. the nose on this one is a great mix of chocolate malt from the base beer and tart freshness from the berries, i am surprised how tart they really are, rising above the sweet richness of the brown ale base, which is quite robust on the grain front, toasted and desserty. the bacterial aspect of this is cool too, it seems to exacerbate the intensity of the fruit, and brings a series pucker to the finish of this. the malt chocolate thing comes back a touch, and it feels like a nice valentines day dessert before the acidity washes it out. the lost abbey is famous for a reason, this is the only beer of its kind i have ever tasted, and think it is more than worthy of its high praise. as flavorful a beer as any.
