A sour blonde ale aged “hella days” in oak barrels at our brewery in Concord. We used Brettanomyces Lambicus for the primary ferment with Lactobacillus, and finished it with Cascadian raspberries.

hopscotch (8850) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Bottle... Mostly clear orange pour with no head. The bouquet offers fruity raspberries and some nice funkiness. Medium to full-bodied with lazy carbonation. The flavor teeters between tart and sour, boasting loads of raspberries. Lengthy, tart, tongue-numbing finish. Bottle courtesy of newcigarz!

illidurit (2121) - Petaluma, California, USA - SEP 15, 2013
From bottle at Jupiter Sour Sunday. Pours a blushy rose orange with a short-lived head. Aroma evokes pink lemonade and watermelon rind with a nice fresh raspberry presence. Flavor is lovely, heaps of fresh raspberries in a super yogurty lacto vehicle. Sour mash, melon rind, sorbet, beautiful.

HUGE THANKS TO BYTEMESIS ON THIS ONE!!!
12oz Bottle. Pours pink, obviously. Little to no head. aromas of gritty lemon Greek yogurt, lactic sourness, some light sour raspberries. Pretty good amount of oak as well. Taste is mind blowing - tart in all the good ways. Chewy yogurt, gritty raspberry seeds, jammy. Sour. Puckering. Finishes very dry with a lasting sourness. Excellent.
GOD NECTAR.

tectactoe (1491) - Michigan, USA - OCT 10, 2013
UPDATED: APR 8, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Jeff! Cloudy, dingy copper with a small red-ish tint; the white head in completely gone in seconds. Aroma is full of raspberry, light juiciness with a mild tartness. Touch of medicinal and a hint of some very light, Brett funk. Taste is more tart than aroma indicates. Nice raspberry flavor, mild acidity, tartness, touch of lemon flesh, and a good bit of dry cotton funk on the back. Finishing funk is nice, with a bit of oak and a lightly cheesy, wet blanket thing going on. Drying funky acidic raspberry finish. Pretty nice stuff.

5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Bottle:   Pale pink pour, clear, sudsy white head, soft, minor, little lacing.   Tart nose, faint raspberry, a touch wheaty, like a Berliner Weisse.   Tart on the tongue, soft dryness, a little mealy on the backside, moderate candyish raspberry flavor profile.   Moderate overall, tartnesss, body, with a little sweetness on the backside.   Lingering mealiness.   Moderate example, approachable, soft somewhat fake raspberry, with a soft lingering mealiness.   Not exciting, but enjoyable.

12oz bottle thanks to bytemesis! Pours rosy pink with small thin head which fades. Nose is tart acidic berry and funk with just a hint of hay. Taste is tart funky berry, passionfruit, starburst, some woody notes, funky. Finish is sour acidic rasberry, cherry, pink lemonade. Very good!

tripelthreat (190) - Soquel, California, USA - DEC 19, 2013
Bottle. Pink body with some orange tint topped by a very small short lived off white head that leaves no lacing. Aroma is raspberry, cranberry juice cocktail, and some lemonade. A little funk comes and goes as well. Taste is medium sour and faintly sweet. Tart bright raspberry, some wood, light funk, and yogurt. Very dry. Excellent.
