Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours a murky red with no head. No lacing on the drink down either. Smell is sour and tart with raspberry jam and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with a fruity berry flavor on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with some great fruity aromas and flavors.

Huge thanks to ehammond1 for making this happen. Served in a Lost Abbey teku.

Pours a light brown with a mild reddish hue to it. The initial pink-hued head fades pretrty quickly into a thin collar around the edges of the glass.

The nose has some cherry and a bit of raspberry. Neither is nearly as strong as the fruit character from Box Set Track #7. Some additional earthiness in the background. Acidity is mostly lactic with just a very mild touch of acetic.

Flavor is earthy and mildly sour. Quite a bit of cherry skin. Moderate raspberry character underneath. Faint hints of black raspberry. Could use a bit more depth.

Mouthfeel is light-medium with an appropriate amount of acidity and carbonation. Very dry finish. Ever so slight tannins.

Again, very nice, but nothing out of control.

Pours a muddy red color with a fleeting white head. The nose is outstanding. Bright, jammy acidic fruit with a ton of raspberry and cherry. The barrel brings a big vanilla note. Similar on the palate, huge juicy fruit flavors with slightly more raspberry than cherry. Nice vanilla and oak notes in the finish. A phenomenal fruit sour.

12.7 brown caged and corked bottle, no freshness date.

Muddled rusty burgundy hue, no head ... not much for lace either. Strawberries, raspberries, raw honey, tart, musty, parsnips, and funk make for a pretty complex and at least interesting nose. Very sour, both raspberry and cherry are present. Lots of fresh oak, estery, faint cracker maltiness, slightly sweet and very sour. Wood dryness envelopes the finish.

Love it or hate it aspects to this brew, smell and taste ... I am all for it. Look and feel, not much of a fan. Very lambic-like. Each sip is a bit more fun to take on.

Thanks to Todd for another .rar tick!

A - Quick-dissolving white foam settles to a partial collar, a few wisps, and no lace. Hazy dark red-brown body.

S - Big raspberry aroma, with a mild malt sweetness to it as well. Light oak and lactic sourness in the periphery, but quite tame. More jammy and funky than tart here.

T - The taste has a bit more of the Red Poppy tartness, and sheds a bit of the raspberry preserve sweetness of Framboise de Amorosa. I actually appreciate the balance here, as the oak and lactic acidity enhance the depth.

M - Smooth, medium body, with a tannic and dry finish. Some mild alcohol warming, which was a surprise, although I suppose it could have been from the mounting acidity in my digestive tract as well.

D - I liked this one. It's about 70-30 in favor of Framboise de Amorosa, but the acidity from the Red Poppy serves as a nice study in balance and contrast. I'd drink this one again, although I think you could get pretty close by blending the two beers yourself.

12 oz bottle.

Pours a muddy ruby brown with a transient like pink head. Nose is fruity and lactic acidic with some seedy raspberry and tart cherry. Fruit is mild and earthy. Flavor is less fruity than the nose, with a strong earthy and chocolate malt like background under light acidity and earthy fruit seeds and skin. Medium light body with low carbonation, pleasantly sour in the finish but not too intense. Sufficient.

Draft at Monk's Cafe in Philadelphia, PA.

Pours a very hazy and dark blood red color with purple/plum hues and a two finger,  light pink head that slowly settles into a thin ring.  Streaks of lace left behind.

Funky aroma with a nice lactic presence along with dry toasted oak and a blast of luscious berries.  Very fruit forward with jammy raspberry, currant and other vinous fruits. Funky bugs/barnyard character counter the fruit sweetness and there's a subtle acetic character as well.

Fuller bodied than expected and really complex with lots of musty bugs, earthy oak, lactic funk and vinous dark berries.  Luscious raspberry bursting forth making it seedy and jammy along with some chery and currant.  Dry with nice acidity and lactic funk.  Subtle acetone quality but not harshly solvent or over the top.  Really complex and insanely drinkable.  Very impressive.

Lost Abbey track beer tasting.

Very excited to try this one, as I am a big fan of both beers used in this blend.

The beer appears lavender hued with an oily beige head. The beer smells fantastic! Raspberries and Lost Abbey funk. A nice blend of the two beers, with the Framboise playing the lead role. Sufficient tartness in the finish, with a lingering assortment of berries. Nice feel. Effervescent and tangy with spritzy carbonation. A dem fine beer, I say.

Bottle at Lost Abbey.

A: Bottle opens with a pop and the beer begins to slowly rise up toward the mouth. Magenta with a pink frothy head that lingers for some time. Very attractive beer.

S: Leathery and earthy. Exceptional fruit aroma. Bright raspberry and cherry with firm tart and lactic notes. Vanilla blends with oak and soft musty characteristics. There's a light mushroom quality.

T: Bursting with raspberries and tart cherries: seed and skin, pit and flesh. Oak blends with vanilla and mellow tannins. There's a moderate lactic sourness with a bit of yogurt character. Outstanding fruit flavor. There's a pleasant acetic acidity throughout and in the mouth watering piquant fruity finish.

M: Medium body with high carbonation. The mouthfeel is sticky and tannic with a nice acidity.

Overall: Reminds me of a blend of the first batch of Framboise and the early batches of Red Poppy. Exceptional fruit sour.

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Murky red. Decent off-white head. Nice collar and wispy surface.

Smell - Tons of raspberry. Cherry is secondary. Musty and acidic.

Taste - So much raspberry. Cherry is still secondary. Musty and jammy. Very tart. Oaky finish.

Mouthfeel - Strong, clean sourness. Well carbonated and dry.

Overall - Excellent. More raspberry than Framboise de Amorosa from what I remember.

A: lots of color into the glass mostly a brown with reddish hues and dark crimson highlights that had a nice frothy half finger of head that left good lacing sticking to the glass.

S: wonderful fruity bouquet upfront in the aroma filled with fresh raspberries, cherries, and strawberry notes, but with nice bretty funk, some acidic character, oakiness showing it face and vinous wine barrel notes.

T: like the nose it had a very delicious fruit forward tart cherry raspberry flavor bursting through on the first sip alongside great oaky accents, vinous wine barrel character which added some dimension and some acidic notes.

M: the brew was medium in body with a good amount of carbonation which had a fruity, oaky, mild acidic, vinous sour and slight dry finish.

O: definitely one of my favorite from the box set and well balanced all around. Glad I got to try this sour fruit bomb.
