Frampaars made me say "whoa" more than any other beer. Starting with the loud POP of the cork, to the fruity, funky aroma, to the bright color of the pour and finally the amazing flavors.

Pours a dark pink color with 2 fingers of fluffy white/light pink head

The aroma is amazing. Funk and sweet purple raspberries. It quickly filled the room.

Prickly mouthfeel to start, very nice carbonation.

Just the right amount of sour to blend perfectly with the fruitiness. Not overly sour, but enough to make a slight pucker and make my mouth water and want more.

Awesome wild ale.

This beer was one of my top beers of 2015, along with Fox and the Grapes. Levi is brilliant in the science and sophistication of world class patient wild beers. First.. This beer wafted of rich and natural raspberries. You could even see a few flakes. The color was of communion liquid. The taste was nirvana. There was no doubt that the aging, liquid alchemy, and natural favors reigned supreme in this jewel. I am proud to have an upper Midwest availability to brilliant wild beer craftsmanship as this.

750ml bottle poured into a tulip

Pours a deep amber/purple color with a one-finger creamy pink head that has good retention. Smells of tart acidic vinegar, fresh squeezed raspberries, raspberry jam, cracked pepper, wet oak and floral yeast. Tastes of fresh raspberry puree, fruity vinegar, lemon juice, peppery yeast, oaky tannins, just a hint of funk at the finish. Medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a slightly foamy mouthfeel and a crisp finish. Pure raspberry jam, delicious

Ruby red hued purple.

This beer isn't very sour or tart. The aroma is really nice and jammy. The flavor is a bit sweet. Some raspberry jam flavor. Some funk. Very fruity. Easy drinking. Clean.

Lighter bodied. Nice carbonation.

Solid beer, but not too sour or tart which is my only complaint. It is very drinkable though.

MT bottle with the new label. Consumed 4/20. Color isn’t as vibrant. A bit tart and citrusy. Lots of berries. Very fruity. Easy drinking. 4.3

This is quite simply one of the best AWA's out there. This is like NG VSB, but with funk. Easily a top 5 beer from 2015. I can't wait to see what they put out next.
