Cletus (6329) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Pours red with a thin pink head. Smells of sour cherries, some vinous undertones, some vinegary notes. Tastes of oak, vinous, some tangy fruity hints and a very acidic finish.

mcberko (5358) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 10, 2014
375mL bottle, sent from Gregg657 (thanks a lot, Pete), pours a cloudy dark amber / mahogany with a tiny quickly-dissipating head. Nose is super pungent, full of rich juicy raspberries, light tartness, moderate funk, and very light acidity. Flavour is super tart and fruity, much more tart than the nose suggests, with loads of mouth-puckering raspberries, moderate funk, some vinegary-ness, and medium acidity. Not as funky or barnyardy as the Coolship Cerise, but really well-structured. Finishes dry, tart and acidic. Excellent stuff.

illidurit (2050) - Petaluma, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Bottle courtesy of jtclockwork shared at the January 2014 tasting in Santa Cruz. Pours a delirious strawberry color. Incredible aroma, overwhelming lush raspberries. Flavor is less fruity, tending toward raspberry seeds and lemon zest. Yogurty sour with some bitterness.

Strife21 (98) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2014
Pours a crimson red, thin head. Smell was oaky, fruity, slightly yeasty, little raspberry funk. Taste was super sour, acidic, bitter rasbberry not overwhelming, crisp on the tongue. Medium body, medium/heavy carbonation.

Hazy red pour @ Armin’s - really nice raspberry nose. Very tart but still retains character and taste of raspberry. Quite nice!

jredmond (5025) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JAN 2, 2014
Bottle courtesy of Jay. Pours a deep ruby red body with thin off-white/pink lacing. Aroma is super tart raspberries and funk. Great nose overall. Mouthfeel is soft and light with notes of tart raspberries, funk, delicate sourness and additional fruits. Pretty straightforward with the raspberry character, but I’m not complaining.
