One of the few beers that is actually good enough to trade for after having it.

In my top 3 and I hate everything.

Side by Side with Framboos vs. Batch 2 Hommage

A - Dark cherry red appearance with a white head that dissipates back into the glass

S - Smell is of raspberries, cherries and tart acidic funk.

T - Taste follows the nose except for the lingering sensation of lidocaine or something mouth numbing that is very off-putting. Not sure if it's bottle variation but this was like what you get at the dentist to numb the mouth

M - Medium bodied, not quite as acidic as I thought it was going to be.

O - Not sure if this bottle was off, but the numbing taste and sensation was really off-putting, I will have to re-review this one the next time I have it

A- a deep blood red with a light pink head. The head isn't as thick as i expected but still about half inch. The head dissipates into a outside lace.

S- sweet raspberry followed by a musky funk. Lots of wood, like oak and a subtle cherry scent.

T- lots of sweet raspberries followed by a deep sourness that sits in your cheeks. Wet wood seeps in behind the raspberries and finishes with a sweet fruit flavor of cherries and raspberries.

M- super super sour. Highly acidic and it takes the enamel off your teeth and makes you sweat.

O- probably the best beer i have had from 3f. Its sourness is matched perfectly by its sweet finish. Definitely worth the hype.
