On tap @ Elfo’s Pub, Perugia, Italy. Pours with a light rosè hazy colour, amazing! Fast diminishing white head. Aroma is softly malty, softly hoppy, notes of raspberry and fruit. Taste is soft to medium sweet, soft bitter, heavy sour, quite well-balanced. Medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation.

Very well done raspberry beer. Ruby pour without much head or lacing. Light sour finish and definitely tastes just like the berry with some malt. Light tart/sour finish. Tap at Max’s.

Draft. Pours burgundy with a pink head. Lightly tart raspberry base, light acidity, lighter funkiness, with some hints of candy sweetness. Not bad.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
carbonated raspberry, effervescent with thin cream ring. Heavy jam nose is raspberry, rust and faintly metallic. Similar profile, seedy front palate becomes carbonic mid, biting co2 through the lightly sulfuric esters and faintly playdoh and rubber phenols in the surprisingly watery finish. High carbonation feigns minerality in the low acid end, mainly citric that’s kept in check by moderate berry fruit sweetness. Dial up fruit, dial down esters, lower carbonation and you’d approach raspberry tart.

Draft pour at bambinos Italian craft beer fest. Sour mixed berry fruit aroma. Blackberry and raspberry dominant flavor, with a little cherry. Amazing fruit flavor with the perfect sour balance. Amazing beer.

Draft at stumbling monk. Pours deep, murky red/purple with pink head that dissipates immediately. Ends up as a ruby-highlighted brown after it settles. Aroma: sweet fruits, balsamic, cherry/raspberry, not much oak. Taste is on the sweet side, with balsamic and a mildly tart finish that is cut a lot by the sweetness. In the vein of the duchess I guess, though less vinegar. After I let it sit a bit, there is more prune juice and sweetened Cheerios. Medium body, slick texture, pleasant and drinkable. This is nice.

Pours hazy pale yellow with low white head. Aroma of raspberries, light yeast, redcurrant, light grass. Taste is rich fruit sour, lasting through the finish. Crisp, light body with average carbonation.

Draft at Farmers Cabinet. Very hazy red. Minimal head. Big juicy raspberry flavors. Nice sly dark edge. Nicely unfiltered. Beats most Italian sours I have had. Good stuff.

Great beer. Amazing to have it on draft in Wake Forest. It reminds me so much of Hommage It would be hard to find a better fruit lambic outside of Payottenland. Props to Joe and Rufus at Wine 101 for splurging for this keg.
