375 mL bottle poured into a snifter. 2012 bottle. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Bright pink body with a pink head that settles to a pink collar. Beautiful beer.

Smell - Bright raspberry aroma. Acidic. A bit of wine and oak.

Taste - More wine forward. Less raspberry at first. Dry musty sourness. The raspberry comes stronger in the back end. Tart without being too sour. Wine and oak in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Dry, nicely tart. High carbonation.

Overall - The aroma builds anticipation that doesn't fulfill in the flavor, but the base beer is too good for this to be anything but tasty. Temptation is subdued, but holds this on its shoulders.

2013 into a Crooked Stave snifter.

A- Really spectacular pink hue to this beer. This looks a little thinner than 3F Framboos. This lacing with good retention.

S- Absolutely glorious. This beer smells like fresh raspberries. Barnyard funk, brett character. Hay.

M- Pretty thin. I am hard on framboise after having Hommage and Framboos. This one is outshined by the former.

O- A very good take on a framboise. I would put this one behind Framboos and Hommage, but better than LP Framboise.
