UPDATED: APR 7, 2013 Finally got to try this bad boy thanks to the NY crew. Poured a hazy pinkish red color with a tiny off white head. Aroma was straight raspberry Janm, lots of flesh and seeds, and some light funk. Taste was similar, more tart than expected from the aroma, but not acidic at all. Lots of raspberry, seeds and fruit, with a light funk cheese finish. Worth every penny and every bit of praise.

UPDATED: JUL 22, 2013 Bottle with jay, clockwork, podey, beerman and ramy. Pours a deep murky red body with nice white lacing that lasts throughout. Aroma is muted throughout with nice cheesiness and raspberry seed bleeding through. Mouthfeel is not overly tart, some acidity that’s cuts the raspberry fruit, fruit seed, sweet fruit juice, cheese and light funk.

Bottle. Wow. Thanks to a generous trader for this bottle. Aroma was of raspberries, hay, musty, and tart. Before a sip your mouth will water. First sip is instant raspberries, then you notice the sour complexity that follows. Dry aftertaste, you can still taste the fruit flavor for several minutes. Man I love this beer

0,75l Bottle bought at Sour&Bitter, Cph 2012, bottled 2011/05/31 6% Vol. A small pop from the cork as it comes out, making the air around me becomes like that of a garden with loads of ripe berries. The pour is deep pink and produces a small bubbly head, which fades rather quickly to a small film of white, leaving some lacings. Aroma is pungent, over-ripe raspberries, heavy notes of oak and a mild soury touch. The taste is heavy fruity, sour with medium carbonation. Oaky notes and barnyard-funk are present aswell, but rather subdued by the onslaught of ripe berries. Body is light to medium-light and the finish is dry.

Bottle shared with dogfishho & jtclockwork at Torst where else? Pours rusty pink with soapy head. Aromas of jammy raspberries some wood and vinegar funk. Tart flavors of raspberries, oak, grapefruit, maybe some leather. Nice dry finish and well carbonated very drinkable brew that I could easily have finished bomber myself although the wallet was pleased I didn’t.

Sampled at the CCB/RateBeer/Pre-Hunah Tasting (Tampa, FL). Pours a richer murky brownish amber pour, ruby red glow, good haziness and darker body. A frothy small head dies to a film, laces well. Aromas are raspberries, oak, gentle red wine. A touch balsamic, good flavors. Gentle yogurt, starts to get a bit seeedy as it warms. Initial is richer raspberry, pulpy and tart, good sourness, lactic and yogurt. Hits the palate quickly. Nice flavors. Rich raspberry, tannic skin and tartness reall bite as we get into this bad boy. Good oak, tart, lactic, raspberry skin. Great flavors! Middle is tart, bigger, really lingers. Big sourness, backend is tart, dry, sour, gentle oak. Finish is some red wine, vanilla, big raspberry pulp and skin feel. Really damn nice. Rich flavors, rich sourness that really grows. What a fantastic beer that really grows as we move on. Some oak, brett, rich lactic elements, yogurt, lemons, big sour raspberry. Damn nice.

400th rate... Woohoo! 2011 bottle at Torst. The aroma is incredibly rich. Almost like sticking your nose in a raw barrel of fermenting raspberries with the skins and seeds and everything. There’s also a mild woody dark chocolate note that balances the profile really well. On the plate, this beer is acidic but not aggressive. Distinctly raspberry, but smooth enough that its almost easier to drink than it is to eat raspberries themselves. The most remarkable thing about the beer is how unbelievably drinkable it is. There is such a clean finish but the tartness lingers for minutes. Wonderful beer and a true shame that it is so difficult to get on the regular. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2013 Bottle at Torst. Pours pinkish red. Nose and taste of fresh raspberry, funk, oak, farmhouse fruit and light acidity. The raspberry notes are ultra fresh- seeds and all. Great balance. Medium body.

Bottle shared at RBWG. This was a big surprise to finally get to try this! Thanks! Pours rosy amber with a pinkish head. Fruity tart aroma. The flavor is tart and fruity yet it has some inderlying sweetness. Very Nice.
