Cloudy, crimson pour. Wonderful fruit nose. Very tart and vinegary on the palate with a fantastic fruit presence. Lightly carbonated and dry on the finish.

2014 vintage. Its well known that this vintage is practically flat and that was a problem for me. This is still an excellent beer. It has a dry raspberry flavor, mostly skin and seed, red wine, hay, bandaid, lemon, funk, and vinegar with a light mouth feel and dry finish. The aroma and flavors are strong and well balanced, but this leans toward the dry, musty, complex flavors rather than blasting you with raspberries. That's a good thing by the way. The raspberries don't get lost at all. Glad I was able to try this, but for the price I don't see myself reaching for this again.

Still bottle, not one bubble, but flavor, funk, fruit and aroma throughout were great

Had the 2014 Framboos the other night. Poured with light carbonation. Nice red color, the smell is fantastic, straight raspberry coming through on the nose. Very nice taste and smooth. Top pour was super bright red, bottom pour was more hazy. Great beer, nice to finally try it. Probably the best raspberry sour I've ever had.

Bottle: Poured a hazy red color Lambic with a medium foamy head with light retention and lacing. Aroma of funky barnyard notes with some tart raspberry notes. Taste is a mix of funky barnyard notes with some tart raspberry notes, light vinegary notes are also perceptible with some acidity. Body si full with limited filtration and good carbonation. Really enjoyable but maybe not as much balance as I was expecting from this brewery.

2014 Vintage. Poured from a 750mL bottle into a 3F "3" script tumbler glass. Acquired in a trade.

Not much of a pop on the uncork - pours a cloudy brownish maroon body with little head that speak of - little carbonation on the appearance. No lacing or retention.

On the nose is sour raspberry candy, lots and lots of raspberries with a definite lactic tartness, a light mustyness and acetic vinegar as well. Raspberries take center stage. Smells extremely inviting.

On the tongue is an initial burst of sour raspberry, followed by a decent oak presence, fruit skins, citrus, light acetic. Drying tartness sticks on the tongue for half a minute. Carbonation is lacking but that doesn't take much away from this beer. Medium body.

Much more sour than I was expecting (think raspberry warheads), but PACKED with flavor, which I really like.
