2012 LPF bottle, bottled May 2015.

It looks amazing. When I think of framboise or raspberry sours, this is how I want them to look. I want them to look like LPF or RdG. That bright pinkish, purple, magenta. LPF has the looks that kill. The looks may be the highlight, though. Lou Pepe Framboise is really acidic. There is very little balance and the raspberries are overwhelmed by the acidity. After a while, my enamel started hurting from drinking this. I can't say I didn't enjoy this, but man, is it harsh.

Balanced nose between raspberry jam and hay/funk. The pour is a beautiful deep pink color with the head being very light pink. The raspberry is the star, but the base beer provides a balanced acidity and deep levels of farmhouse hay and funk.

Sampled at a tasting. Dark ruby pour with a small pink head. Smells of raspberries and lambic funk, cherries and cherry cores. The taste is impossibly sour, but of a fruity type, not vinegar-y, with tons of raspberries and some cherries in the mix. Crazy!

2012 sticker. 3/23/15 bottling. Birthday bottle!

L: Lovely deep red and pink hue. Very slightly pink, mostly white head to a ring.

S: This is intoxicating. Raspberry jam. Hint of funk.

T: Pretty incredible. So jammy. Slight points off for as it warmed I got a bit of a cheesy character.

F: Classic Cantillon. Light and effervescent, mildly creamy.

O: Definitely met my expectations. I'd love to see where this beer goes with some age on it.

Murky dark red color with pink head. Aroma is full of fresh raspberries and some farmhouse funk. Taste starts with intense sourness and raspberries in the background. Extremely dry, light body with a good amount of carbonation. Excellent fruit aroma but the intense sourness overwhelms the other flavors.
