2008-05-31. hazy red body, modest white-pink head. (3+) Light musty funk introduces a good amount of rich raspberry aroma. (8+) Flavour is cheek tuggingly sour at first but the tongue quickly acclimatizes, remains quite sour throughout but allows the fruit to come out nicely. Tart-sour raspberries. (7+) Palate is zippy, average plus body - its not superb for my own preferences, but it is spot on for the beer. Pretty awesome, many thanks to those who brought this, it was one of my few ímust triesí that I did not find on my trip to Belgium. Quite good. Bottle, Post-Mondial Tasting, Montreal

Red grapefruit in color with a quickly fading pastel pink head. Smell is a hint funky with a touch of ammonia in there with a hefty amount of fruit. Very tart flavor of berries and cherries. Nice, enjoyable and sour. Palate is fitting and not too thin. Overall, a good brew and an enjoyable fruity beer.

750ml Bottle: Sour, acidic aroma of raspberries, and a little bit of chemicals. Poured dark red (raspberry red or blood red) in color with a medium-sized pink head that diminished rather quickly. Opaque. Cloudy. Flavor is medium sweet, lightly sour, and very acidic. Tastes of raspberries, oak, and a little bit of cherries. Medium body. Tingly texture. Lively carbonation. Raspberry and acid finish. Good, but not sure why it cost me $38 for the bottle.

Bottle shared by the legendary miketd. Thanks man!!
Pours a dense cranberry color with a very light thin head. Smell is funky, tart, cherries, and oak. Flavor is lightly funky, tart cherries and vinegar with a medium body. I got more cherry than raspberry from it. Pretty good and nicely sour.

Bottle. Rich reddish-purple beer with an off-white head. Dusty, raspberry, earthy, tart aroma. Tart, raspberry, duty flavor that turns sour. Medium body. Lingering earthy notes with raspberry and a nice sourness. Great complexity and very refreshing.

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2009 Bottle shared by miketd at lb4lbís tasting. Poured a deep pink color with a thin, fizzy pink head. Aroma of tart, sour cherries and some berry, but not in the most appealing way. Some yeast also. Flavor is pretty tart with strong flavors of raspberry and sour cherry, some barnyard funk, and a light yeastiness on the finish. Crisp and moderately dry. Pretty nice beer.

Bottle at tasting at Chris Fischerís (from Liars Club) house. Pours with a ruby red body topped by a medium thick to thick head with some lacing. Itís tart and sour with a nice funk and notes of raspberry. Light bodied, crisp and smooth.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - MAY 26, 2008
Pours red/amber with a soft pink head. Tart raspberry and dose of funk to the aroma. Darn, there was a great quote tonight about the funk in this, but I canít quite remember it. The berry flavor was very fresh, like a not quite rip raspberry, sort of tart and very mildly sour. Not very acidic, but a good dry earthiness.
