Framboise de Amorosa is our first foray into the world of raspberry beers. It begins as Lost and Found ale and is sent into freshly emptied red wine barrels. The beer spends over a year in the wood during which time it is spiked with three additions of raspberries. The first sip produces a sweet start with a long drawn out sour finish. So of the sweetnewss from the raspberries comes out before acidic notes join the mix. On the back end of the beer is a smoothing oak character which keeps the beer from becoming dull.

    12.7 ounces corked and caged bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 7.0%. Hazy reddish-brown colour, moderate off-white head. INTENSE aroma of ripe and over-ripe raspberries, some spicy notes too. Strong sour / acidic flavour with loads of raspberries, also notes of lemons. If this is what you like, that’s what you get.

    Bottled@SBWF2010. Deep reddish coppery colour, quite murku, with a small quickly vanishing head. Aroma is tart and sourish wooden, fruity and berryish. Flavour is quite similar along with some spicyness. A rather pleasantly balanced sour beer. Also has some slight sweet berries along with the tartness.

    didn't know if this was going to be a sweet fruit beer or a sour funky beer going in, but open popping the cork...sour it is! Yay!! Smells cidery in it's sourness, with some fresh raspberry and oak in there too. very nice looking brick red with pinkish head. nice body. well carbonated, but full and round in the mouth. the flavor wins it - riddiculously complex. mouth puckerignly sour and aggressive up front, although you get used to it after the first couple sips, but it's not subtle. even so, there are so many layers underneath to enjoy. the raspberry is eveident and fresh, but plays a supporting eole, and there is a defined woodsie character as well. this is a great beer, but at the price, definitely a rare treat. i like this slightly better than the highly regarded Red Poppy.

    Sampled on 4/23/2010. This sour ale pours a muddy brown color with some reddish highlights from a 375ml bottle. Small to medium sized pinkish foamy head, with nice lacing and good retention. The aroma is semi sweet raspberry a touch of tart and some wood. A medium bodied sour. The malts are fruity and sweet, lots of semi sweet raspberry flavors and a whole lot of tartness. There is a huge sour/tart assault at the start, which fades into a nice raspberry flavor in the middle. This beer finishes with a nice fruity tartness and some oak. Yet there is a whole lot of tartness going on. Excellent carbonation. Very nice beer. Now I wonder how it going to age, and can I keep from drinking the bottles I have left long enough to find out. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is tart.

    Draft, City Beer Store. This beer is a darkish pink with no head and looks thick, like a cross between Pepto and the dregs of a fruit beer. The aroma is pretty great. There’s huge Raspberry note backed by a clean lactic sourness. It’s fresh and natural smelling, no artificial fruit here. It reminds me of making raspberry jam. The flavor is almost harshly tart and lactic sour, which I enjoy but probably isn’t for everyone. The mouthfeel seems thick but I could be imagining that. The beer is fairly palette wrecking, pleasingly so at first but it wore on me. The lactic tart raspberry was strong enough to make me almost lose the flavor by the end of my small glass. Very interesting and rather delicious beer, particularly in small doses.
