3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2013 10th May 2012
Bottle shared at Sour & Bitter. So here we are - white whale time! Iím not holding my breath though and itís just as well. Hazy dark red beer with a tiny pale pink head. Light palate, semi dry. Fairly tart and unsweet raspberry come cherry. Acidic, too much so. Very dry finish, too much so. Just about drinkable but over tart and over dry. Canít say this is a bad beer because way too many people I respect rate it so highly - just another example of me not appreciating or understanding this style at all. Have to mark íem like I see íem and I struggled through my meagre portion. 2.7.

Craft Clerkenwell Tasting. A year and a bit later this has mellowed a lot - itís pure raspberry jam with just a little acid sourness. So much more drinkable if still pretty one dimensional.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2013 Bottle @ S&B - Pours dark pink reddish. Aroma of raspberries and almonds. Medium body with a well-balanced evolution of fruity sweetness in the front to the typical dryness of lambic in the finish. Taste of cranberries and raspberry, some lime notes as well.
Upped with 0.3 after having sampled a 1990 vintage at DHVL. Poured light golden amber with a pink hue. Still a huge & incredible raspberry funk aroma. Light body and full raspberry tart taste. Incredible!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at Sour & Bitter, shared with Evil stepdad and Beerbiker: Light brown with a red shade and a light off-white head. Lovely fresh rasberry aroma along with mild wood, wild yeast and citrus. Flavor is fresh rasberry juice, perfectly balanced with acidic notes. The balance and cleaness is what makes this brew great. Its not extreme or suprising in anyway, just really really clean and balanced

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle Sour and Bitter 2012. Dark purple/brown pour with slight pinkish white foam. A ton of raspberry in the aroma, quite a bit of funk as well, something grassy there too, cheese. Rich flavor, lots of berry, although already less sugar than the nose would suggest, a light sweetness resides. The finish is tart and slightly lemony. I found it a bit heavy bodied, but still relatively dry. Good stuff, but I can imagine it benefiting from more age.

Iím glad I bought this! Pours dark hazy red with a tiny head.

I guess Iím riding the wave of loving this!
