This consistently pastel reddish-pink beer looks like a glass full of amniotic fluid. A loud fizzy carbonation suggests it might be a sparkling brew, but it fizzles out quickly.

As it pours, the smell starts with a sort of bready funk, but as the glass settles, complexity develops, bringing cashew butter and waxy oak funk that's a little peppery, giving way to a bounty of lemon-lime spritzed raspberries and blackberries.

Taste has plenty of sharp acidity mellowed by a well-distributed, active but thin carbonation which helps deliver plenty of sesame-esque oak and tons of raspberry. A crisp green apple swallow gives Frampaars a very puckering yet salivating finish, allowing it to glide down very quickly, with a tingly yet velvety feel and a semi-dry, Gushers sort of aftertaste.

While very well made with very matured, toasty aromas and flavors, what might otherwise be an outstanding mouthfeel is damaged by an acidity that seems to only increase in potency with time.

Poured 750ml into teku. . Color is dark purple/red and with a very light pink head. Thick collar and spots of lacing. Sour and acidic notes of vinegar and fresh lemon with a good amount of funky raspberry puree. A bit of jam, even mild cheese or yogurt to build up the funk; has some woodiness to it. Very sour and delicious. Plenty of raspberry flavor, some jam like quality that moves into a faint cheese followed by sharp lemon sour and vinegar. Some woody funk on the finish. Light bodied and big carbonation makes for a fantastic mouthfeel. This is about as close to Cantillon that I have had and it is amazing.

Another winner from the fine folks at Funk Factory! Jammy raspberry goodness and just a solid beer. The color is amazing and it's not super tart but just a well put together beer. Worth seeking out!
