2012 sticker poured into a fluted glass. While this beer is visually striking with a lovely raspberry scent, the taste and mouthfeel are the stars here. Fantastic balance of funk, fruit and sour. Even a hour after opening there is still huge carbonation. A complete joy. One of the best beers I've ever had.

2013 bottle. That was EXTREME, could feel the smell from the bottle and the off flavors here were kind of unpleasant in the first 15-20 minutes. The funk was so strong we couldnt have the first sip, and i'm not talking about horsey aromas but some kind of fishey/rotten food/mold and more. After waiting for the beer to get warmer the aromas morphed into something more fruity and the framboise finally came up. Very very sour on the palate, mid carbonation. What an experience this was, scary and amazing!

2013 sticker at Hopyard in Oslo. This was a pleasant surprise and a real treat. My first time having LPF and I think I rank it best among the framboise that I have had - I prefer it to Framboise du Fermier and Atrial. It is very balanced - pleasantly tart, not super sour.

L: Light red pour with medium head and lacing, turning to dark crimson on the dregs pour.

S: Light funk, red wine, and raspberries.

T: Very tart, balanced nicely with fruit sweetness and a vinous barrel quality.

F: Finely carbonated with a dry finish.

O: A very nice fruited sour that opens up as it warms. This one hits some highly acidic, sometimes vinegar-like notes which may be too much for some people, but overall, the flavors complement each other well. Very enjoyable.

2012 sticker into a snifter.

Pours deep Ruby red with fluffy pink 2 inch head - thought it was a kriek at first the color was so intense!

Slight earthy funk under huge sweet raspberry - tart notes of cassis and a hint of vanilla.

Tart and funky, but not very sour; typically balanced between earthy funk and bold fruit. A touch sweet with masses of raspberry crushing all

Bright and effervescent. Almost over carbed.

Overall fantastic. Shame ill probably never see another bottle!
