Marsiblursi (2983) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2012 (Bottle) Pours hazy/cloudy deep red with a small off-white/pink head. The aroma holds fresh raspberries up front with undertones of crackers, cheese, horse blanket, hay, rhubarb kissel,rose hip soup, frozen strawberries, citrus, mould and touch of spices. The nose is not super complex but nonetheless super yummy and juicy. The flavour is dry and heavily acidic with notes of raspberries, citrus, crackers, light horse alongside a whisper of wood and rhubarb. The mouthfeel is tart and light carbonated. Lingering citric and raspberry fruity finish. Light to medium bodied.

jackl (3859) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 24, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2012 Multiple bottles at S&B. Pours deep ruddy red in color with a tiny off-white head. The nose is heavy raspberry jam, very fruity. Some woody oak and strawberry cordial. Juicy, young lively nose. The taste is strong sugary jam, raspberry and strawberry. Bright buoyant flavors. Lightly tart with an underlying body of lactic sourness that shows itself after your adjust to fruits. Light mineral yeastiness. The body’s light, the carb active. Overall, it’s already drinking great, and it has plenty of room to grow some more funky subtle flavors. Very, very good.

[my 8,600th rating]
Pours hazy red with a lovely, creamy, off-white (light pink) head. Aroma has lots of fresh raspberries, tart, a hint of liqourice and tart red currants. Frothy, medium carbonation, great creamy and dry mouthfeel. Flavour starts super-tart, plenty of fresh raspberries, light funk. Lingering, drying out puckering tartness. Only softly lactic. Delicious and fresh.

Pundarquartis (19) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2012
Incredible aroma just packed with raspberries and funk. Taste is pure, tart, but sweetish, raspberries with a more toned down funk. Needs a couple of years to become truly amazing... but wow, this is an unbelievable beer.

Bottle shared at Sour & Bitter. So here we are - white whale time! I’m not holding my breath though and it’s 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. Can’t 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 ’em like I see ’em and I struggled through my meagre portion. 2.7.

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

gEUS (890) - Linden, BELGIUM - MAY 20, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2014 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! -----&# 4.8 score after having sampled a 2 year old bottle at Sloshfest. It gets more funky and subbtle with time.

Adenila (1557) - DENMARK - MAY 17, 2012
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
