Shared at a tasting hosted by Steebo on February 13. All I remember hearing was that a Tony brought this beauty. This, undoubtedly, gives the Cognac Dark Lord a run for best beer at the tasting. 2011 Vintage 750 mL bottle. The pour is a beautiful dark ruby with a small pink head that falls down to a thin ring. The aroma is awesome. There is a monstrous raspberry and a sharp tartness to go along with a nice lemony sourness. There is a little funk under the sourness, but itís just great. The flavor is more unbelievable. The fruitiness is incredibly jammy and sour. Incredibly sour, with the fruits ringing in all the way through. Itís very acidic, but so smooth and easy to drink. The mouth feel is perfect. The carbonation is beautifully done to help it spread and coat the taste buds, and just linger in enjoyment. The aftertaste is all sour raspberry. Amazing liquid. I would love to try to get another bottle of this!

At Mikkeller a at in SF with Taylor. Pours bright ruby rose red. Aroma is complex and beautiful soft raspberry juice. Taste is funky subtle sour medium acidity. Finish is long and nursing with raspberry and hint of cherry funk. Also, Taylor thinks it taste like "apple cider vinegar," but "not completely."

From an unnamed source. Pours murky red with a tiny pink head and a magnificent raspberry aroma. There is an intense raspberry flavor over a lovely geueze base. Fruity, funky, mellow, excellent!

So happy we stumbled across this! Bottle to glass. Pours a gorgeous rose red color with little to no head. Smell is dry, very tart, big raspberry sweetness. Flavor is like sour raspberry syrup. Zero carbonation though in our bottle, which was a bit disappointing. Overall an excellent beer and certainly lives up to the hype.
