BeerandBlues2 (11048) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 7, 2008
750 mL bottle purchased at Liquor Max in Loveland, CO. Pours hazy ruby with an average, fizzy, off-white (ruby) head, mostly diminishing with spare lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (bread, hay, straw), average hops (flowers, grass), heavy yeast (horse blanket, barnyard) with notes of raspberry. Light bodied, sticky texture, lively carbonation, and a bitter finish. Long duration, light sweetness, heavy acidity and bitterness.

On the RBSG 2008 bus - also served by Dr. Bill (if I remember correctly). Pours cloudy dark amber reddish pinkish brown with a white head. Nice tart, berry-like funky/horsey nose. Whoah, pretty damn puckering sour - notes of lemon, citric acidity, berries, strawberry and no shortage of brett funkiness. Very well-attenuated, light bodied with moderate carbonation. Very good.

AgentSteve (1647) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - AUG 5, 2008
At RBSG, one of the earliest tasted, and I’m glad of that because I still remember it well! Beautiful bright pink pour with no head. Nose and flavor were tart cherries and raspberries that finished smoothly with toasted almond and oak dryness. A real treat!

padrefan98 (854) - (San Diego) Santee, California, USA - AUG 3, 2008
From a bottle shared at the Grand Tasting during RBSG 2008 in San Diego. Lots of sour cherries in the aromas and sweet sourness in the flavor. An excellent lambic, one of my favorite of the day.

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2009 8/2/08: aroma was fantastically funky and fruity...color was blood orange and hazy. flavors were grittily fruity but not sour or funky enough. carbonation on the low side. good shit though, but could be spritzier and funkier in flavor. Re-Rate: 12/13/09: Nose is just outrageously funky..loads of bandage, stepped on raspberries, vanilla, Flavors this time had a lot of the funky bandage notes that apparently the first bottle did not have. Lots of wood and vanilla..but funky too. This really has a unique funky character with sweet soft vanilla bringing above what you’d expect.

garthicus (2823) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 29, 2008
HogTownHarrys bottle, shared with great gusto with Harry and Blankboy. App: Cherry red, zero head, no visible carbonation. Aroma: SEXY! In fact, I had to censor this rating a little as I got a bit excited (I referred to hookers turned into ladies a la ’Pretty Woman’) Anyhow: Flavour: Sour cherry, bitter and sweet, like drinking a cherry cola whilst on LSD - simply superb.

marcus (7994) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 25, 2008
This red lambic ale poured with a thin pink head and a fruity floral aroma. There is a sharp raspberry flavor that is both tart and mellow - very dry.

bhensonb (12951) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 21, 2008
Bottle shared with Marcus and Steve at Toronado. Reddish/mahogany color with a minimal pinkish head. A nice sour aroma. Hard to pick up any raspbery. Near medium body with mild carbonation. It is smooth oaky sour. The raspberries are not overwhelming. It brings kalamata olives to mind. Astringent, woody and dry. But some sort of sour sugar hits the sides of the mouth in the finish.
