thanks to egrace84 for the bottle share!

750ml bottle sealed with pressure cap and cork.

Sticker on bottle says 2010. Cork says bottled in 2013.

poured into tulip glass.

Appearance: translucent mediumred bodied beer with massive 3 fingers of white head. Head has some serious staying power and eventually drops down to a thin cap.

Smell: Apple cider vinegar. Loads of juicy raspberries. Light level of funkiness.

Taste: Tons of raspberries! Hints of green apples and lemons. 6/10 on the sour scale. Light musty funk just like in the nose. Bright tasting fruity sour!

Mouthfeel: light bodied beer with moderate carboantion levels. semidry finish. wouldnt chance a think about the mouthfeel. Supurb!

Overall: Between LP Kriek and LP Fram, the clear winner is the Framboise. What a great sour beer by Cantillion.

2010 LP Framboise - Poured from a 750ml bottle

A: Deep pink/red with a light pink head

S: Some dry tart funk and jammy berries, a little bit of yeast

T: I'm tasting 2 very different and pronounced components of this beer both separately and at once. On one hand, you can taste all the qualities of a delicious Cantillon labmic - funky barnyard, grass, with a pretty heavy sourness. One the other hand you can taste super fresh raspberries, maybe the most natural raspberry flavor I've ever encountered in a beer. Together they are phenomenal.

M: Slightly dry, good carb

O: I was very very impressed by this beer! Really fantastic framboise from Cantillon.
