Regardless of your choice of path, you are in for one "wild" ride!   ;D

Just racked it to glass and topped off with my other saison. All fresh gear for the top off. The raspberries have given this a wonderful color and it smelled awesome with just a bit of tart/tang to the nose. Gonna cover it up and set aside for awhile to see what happens. Thanks for the suggestions, fingers crossed for now

I'll bet it ends up pretty tasty, Frank ! Nice pink foam.

Got a sample chilling now bit had to take a small sip: reminds me heavily of Lindemann Framboise only not nearly as sweet. Guess the red and black raspberries will make that happen every time!

Lindemann backsweetens the hell out of those fruit lambics, so that's probably a good thing.  ;)

Awesome!  Good luck with it and keep us updated.  I'm going to try and sit on mine until February or so - the idea of leaving fruit in the carboy that long goes against every natural instinct I have so it is difficult...

If its whole fruit you might get a hint of tanins from skins n seeds, but nothing to panic about. This year I'm using Oregon Fruit purees which have skin n seed removed. Looking forward to seeing the difference. Road trip today to get the fruit actually. I'll add the fruit in 2 or 3 weeks and it will stay in till bottling day next February or March.

No worries.  I have left fruit in the carboy (under beer of course) for over 6 mos with only positive effects.  That beer was actually a 4 year old lambic blend (other 5 gallons were blended into a killer gueuze) that sat on fresh harvest peaches, skin and all.
