Very nice...sweet/sour punch with some serious aftertaste.
This brew is a long way from my style of beer but it does have some very nice attributes...the raspberry explosion alone is worth the price of admission.
Arrived a cloudy burgandy with a very thick head. Carbonation is a multitude of very small bubbles which soon lessens.
Body is medium/full.
Would be diffacult to consume more than one of these due to the sweet lingering aftertaste...but one is enjoyable!!!

250ml bottle bought from Belgianshop.com... aged for almost two years... poured into a Mort Subite Framboise glass...

Poured quite a dark rose pink colour with some orange tinges.. light dusty pink head poured very thick and meringue like then faded very slowly leaving a steady trail of thick lacing rings around the glass...

Aroma - Lots of tart and sour raspberry fruitiness, some other fruit sweetness coming through - peach and water melon, light lambic funkiness, very faint biscuit notes, some woodiness...

Taste – Very nice sweet and sour raspberries - quite tart also... some faint mustiness, light saltiness, again some biscuit malt just noticeable, rose wine notes..

Feel - Quite sharp and dry... light bodied... very refreshing and drinkable - would be good on a hot summer day rather than the coldest night of the year which it currently is !!

Overall - A surprisingly good Framboise, although i think the aging has helped - i've had this fresh and it was much sweeter.... definitely worth a try....

From notes...

A - Pours a dark ruby red, slightest haze, two fingers of head with solid retention and some nice chunky lacing.

S - Super sweet, fresh raspberries, hint of mustiness, and reminiscent of kool-aid.

T - Loads of raspberries, and tons of sugar, hint of caramel, light hoppy bitterness, dry vineous wine and a sweet champagne flavour that lingers.

M - Super light, bubbly and reminsicent of champagne, smooth going down and a hint of dryness on the finish.

O - This stuff is tasty and although quite sweet, I don't know that it ventures into the category of overly sweet. Still possesses those light beer characteristics that keeps it in the lambic field and out of the cider realm from a tasting perspective. I would buy this stuff again, though more than likely for my wife as a way to ease her into the world of beer!
