12oz Bottle. Thanks, Rob. Hay, almonds, freshly cut wood, and mashed berry aroma. Woah, this is intensely acidic. Brazen lactic acid brings some general fresh raspberry notes at about 50% of full intensity. Lemon juice, yogurt, oak, and ground leaves. The raspberry fruit notes give a hint of acetic, but I don’t think it’s really there. Snappy and really sharp. This seems incredibly young at this perspective. I think a more aged blend would have created a more graceful beverage. Bottle aging won’t work since the fruit will be eaten up by the time the beer softens and mingles.

Bottle at Grote Dorst. Vintage 2010. Clear red liquid with small light pink head. Aroma of red berries, funk, barnyard, earth, lemon and vinegar. Taste is dry and medium sweet with notes of funk, harsh malt and red berries. Medium bodied with medium to high carbonation. Nice but not that elegant.

berntholer (1175) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JUN 4, 2014
slight pink head that disappears quickly without lacing. pink colour. aroma is raspberry, sour, fresh. taste like aroma but with a pronounced citric sour finish. rather thin body and very carbonated. not well balanced, lacks complexity. expected much more from this, a gambrinus is way better, but perhaps that is not a fair comparisson? bottle @ cantillon quintenssence ’14

Bottle at Culmination Fest: Poured a reddish pink with a white colored head. Aroma is strong funky berry. Taste is very mouth puckering fruit with lots of tartness. Not my cup of tea for sure.

@Quintessence - cloudy reddish beer with no head retention; fair aroma of raspberries, vinous; solidly sour and with a good malt backbone; light earthy, some sweetness below; dry and long very sourish red fruity finish - a solid beer with tons of character
