Opened 2 batch 2 bottles together. Really jammy, however the aftertaste was slightly reminiscent of band-aids. Did not feel this one lived up to the hype.

From 02/28/15 notes. HUGE thanks to the combo of nimbleprop and jslot38 for busting this out at my bachelor party in Charleston...one of my two biggest wants by far. Batch 2.

Pours a deep rugby red/purple color with one finger of fluffy pink head and moderate to high carbonatioin evident. Looks great. Nose is super sour and fruity, lots of cherries and raspberries, dark fruits. Taste has more spice, and more tartness and funk than the nose had, which is very nice and adds some complexity to it. Medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall a world class beer from one of the best sour breweries in the world; I'd put this right up there with their Oude Gueuze Vintages as their best beer (never had Framboos), and one of the best sours I've had in a long time. Loved it.

The beer up front offers a medium berry flavor, leaning on a jammy quality. Leaning more towards raspberry than cherry.

Then a medium funk and a good tart quality comes up. Oak cleans up the beer. A touch of sesame comes up. Not the most exciting Drie F or fruited lambic, despite the hype.

Not sure if we got an infected bottle but we had a large sour tasting last night and this was by far the worst of the bunch. For lack of a better description, it smelled and tasted like band aids. We have 10 people all agree on the assessment and we ended up drain pouring the remaining.

Fantastic fruit flavor! If we're being picky, it's a little on the tart side and the carbonation is a bit distracting. But that's being really picky.
