Oakes (15615) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - MAY 24, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2015 2011-2012 vintage, aged a couple of years. Deep cherry red. No head. The aroma is deep raspberry, with woody elements, and some sugary sweetness. Very dry, quite woody, and it has a lot of berry character, leading to a long, dry finish.

1986 Vintage, sampled May 2004
Orangey-amber colour. Funky aroma - stinky cheese, raspberry and earth. So well-integrated you can’t help nosing the beer over and over again. Slight acetic hint to the big acid body. Hugely complex - raspberries, nuts, leather and oak. Extremely well-balanced. Some sips you’re drinking a collection of great flavours, other sips you’re drinking just one great flavour. Drinking this is like peeling back layers of time as the beer slowly reveals itself. Outstanding. I gave this a 4.9, but fresh examples aren’t near that level.

ansalon (2973) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - SEP 17, 2016
Pours light raspberry with no head. Aromas of raspberry, red currant, citrus, slight cherry. Nose is perfectly blended, just amazing. Taste is soured fruit, citrusy notes and slight earthy tones. Mouthfeel is light bodied with moderate carbonation. Insanely well balanced between tart, fruit, earthy notes and floral notes. Wow.

Zlotta (2083) - Hagen, GERMANY - JUL 27, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2016 Sampled from 0.75 l bottle, 2014 vintage, shared by kermis at Not THT, thanks! Murky, brownish red, no head. Sourish-fruity, moderately funky aroma of raspberries, some strawberries, red wine vinegar, some oak and some bitter almond. Quite sour, fruity and moderately funky taste of raspberries, strawberries, red wine vinegar and a bit of bitter almond, followed by a medium long, quite tart and woody-dry finish. Medium body, slightly effervescent and quite astringent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Good stuff!

Maakun (3888) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 27, 2016
2014 bottle shared thanks to kermis. Murky dark pink to brown with no real head. Some hay, funk, raspberries, red berries and black currant. Light bready, mineral, green leaves and a touch of red wine vigegar. Over medium sour and very light sweet. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. It’s good, but really not as good as the hype.

Candy for grown ups, the kind you’d gladly steal from a child :p Rasberry heaven, I bet that this was what God really made on the 7th day, the resting bullshit was just a huge cover up. The taste is a funky blend of raspberries and citrus. Love this as much as some people love Sofiero!
