2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
2013 bottle poured at the Tipples Rare and Barrel Aged Beer Tasting on July 13, 2014. Pours a dark reddish amber color with a creamy white rim of head on top. Aroma is very funky barnyard, hay, dry dusty oak, and bandaids. Uh oh. Flavor follows with big time bandaid flavors--just like my first bad Fantome--some dry oakiness, and a bit of sour cherries in there. No evidence of raspberries whatsoever, unfortunately. Very dry body, medium plus carbonation, and light plus mouthfeel.
Well, this was awfully disappointing. I assume this was a bad bottle. They had 4 of them there, but I only got a pour from one. No way this is what this beer is supposed to taste like. I’ll have to revisit this one again if I can ever find it.

Bottle (batch 2) shared by JulienHuxley, many thanks! Pours a cloudy red and is topped by a small rim that leave few lacing. Nose is of intense cherries and other red fruits, musk, some smoke and rubber. Taste is really fruity and moderately acid, really nice. Body was medium and carbonation medium-high. A great fruit lambic!

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2014 Bottle @ RBGB III. Pours gorgeous red, with pink head. Sour raspberries and red berries in the aroma. Tart, sour that blends perfectly with the evident taste of raspberries. Love this.

Red no head...or very little...yes to style. Huge aroma of cherrie and raspberries, added funk and barnyard made this an aromatic dream. Flavor matches aroma so well balanced with tart fruit and barnyard funk A++++

Bottle from Edmund Edmunds. Pours a nice, light, hazy red/pink/cherry. Aroma is sour cherry, funk, really impressive nose. Taste is equally impressive, absolutely delectable. Nice tartness, not too much, fucking awsome. Wish I knew more beer words for beers like this.
