look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours a dark, ruby red with a tall fizzy head of pink foam. Drops quickly.

S - Sweet fruitiness. Raspberries of course, a bare hint of funk. Supposedly this contains cherries as well, but I can't really tell the difference from just raspberries.

T - A little bit sweet, a little bit tart, a hint of bitterness in the back end. Mostly very clean. Fruit flavour is there as well as a lingering aftertaste that's bitter and fruity (like orange rind, but not orangey).

M - Fizzy, light and refreshing. I dare say a bit on the watery side.

O - Overall, I find this a little weak. Accessible, but not exactly bursting with favour.

375ml bottle at the Malt House in Madison, WI. Poured into a Duvel tulip today, 1/27/2014.

App- Dark reddish brown body, a bit of white head, minimal retention, not much lacing

Smell- Funky, sweet raspberry, cane sugar, oak. Smells overly fruit but the funk adds a bit to the complexity.

Taste- Sweet raspberries, rotten oak, funk, horseblanket. Solid.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied, a bit thick and custardy. OK carbonation. Drinkable.

Overall- Not the best Framboise, certainly easy to find and not expensive to boot. A decent example of the style, but just a bit above average. Beats Lindeman's offering for sure.

375mL single from the James Island Pig during their 50% off sale... figured I'd might as well try it. Poured into a small fluted glass.

A: Bright purple; fizzy; huge three-finger head of white foam; no lace.

S: Raspberries; sweet tarts.

T: Raspberry; sweet tart; vinous; pretty sour.

M: Pretty light and lively, as expected; puckering sour finish.

O: A pretty traditional lambic, I suppose... Nothing mindblowing, for sure. Tart.
