4.28/5  rDev -4.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a tulip. Tasted side by side with 2011 Framboos

Hommage pours a hazy crimson color with just a tiny wisp of an off white head.

The raspberries are definitely noticeable in the nose, although the cherries are surprisingly prominent. A strong tart aroma has a strong acetic vinegar component to it. The acidity in the aroma seems to mostly overwhelm any funky wild elements that might be there.

Cherry is actually the stronger flavor coming through with my first sip. Tart cherries, overripe cherry skin, sour raspberry, red grapes, oak, and balsamic vinegar all come together nicely. The flavor has a gentle sweetness up front and then strikes a nice balance between fruity tartness and acetic vinegar. There is a slightly off-putting plasticy note that comes through at the beginning of the sip, but other than that this is very enjoyable.

It has a nice, smooth, medium body for a lambic that is peppered with vinegar acidity. The carbonation is on the lighter side of medium, and there is a slightly oaky and tannic finish.

This is clearly a well-crafted lambic. I thought that raspberries would be the dominant fruit, but I was not disappointed that the cherries came through so strongly. The plastic flavor in the flavor was enough for me to knock down the flavor and overall score, but everything else was solid.
