2011 framboos

A: Pours a murky muddy brown with slight reddish hues. Small head that recedes to a thin film encircled by larger bubbles that cling to the rim for the duration.

S: Straight raspberry jam, plums, currants, overripe banana, fresh flowers, grass, and funk.

T: Raspberry sweetness up front, quickly turns tart tangerine and grapefruit, dry, long Pinot noir-esque finish

F: Fairly low carb, becomes almost carbless as it warms. Lingers around the cheeks.

O: Really delightful.

Rating #1500, the elusive Framboos, Vintage 2011, poured into a 3F wine glass, reviewed from tasting notes

A: pours a deep red with orange at the edges with a fleeting whitish head that has poor retention and leaves only a trace of lacing 4.25/5

S: huge sweet rasberry jam dominates the nose, there's also some lemon zest and a hint of stale grain 4.75/5

T: leads off with tart rasberry, not near as sweet or jammy as in the nose, that transitions into tart, acidic lemon that tiptoes on the line of overpowering without crossing it, a hint of grain, tartness lingers, almost puckering 4.25/5

M: medium body, good level of carbonation, very dry finish 4.5/5

O: The nose and taste were almost polar opposites, but this beer managed to provide everything I enjoy in a fruit lambic, really wish Armand would bring this one back 4.5/5

Side by Side with Hommage b2

A - Dark muddled red brown. Thick and dark fruit colored with a small foam reddish tint head the recedes back into the glass

S - Jammy butteriness that fits just right with the berries. Funky tart fruits

T - Taste is amazing here definitely one of the highlights of the night, funky cheesy fresh raspberries and with the perfect balance between fruit and acidity

M - Spot on here. Medium bodied thick creamy juicy tart everything you could want

O - This was wayyyyyyy better than the Hommage we popped to do a side by side. Tough to land but at a large share like this, definitely worth it
