TheAlum (5833) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 3, 2014
375 ml bottle acquired via trade on BA. Thanks, Jacob! A bottle Iíve sought for awhile now. Pours a gently hazed slightly dulled golden hue, some shine and gentle ruby tinge with frothy loose whitish head, dies to a small ring and laces small. Lively carbonation through the body. Aromas are potently sour, firmly lactic and sour raspberry, lemon and citric elements. Yogurty life, some lively acidity and sourness, white wine barrel shows white grape, gentle citrus and melon. Gentle bready malts, cobwebs come into play as it settles more. Potent, enjoyable. Initial is lighter end of the fold in body, nice twangy lactic life. Yogurt, lemon, seedy and tannic raspberry skin. Touches of oak, a bit of vanillin with firmer sourness. The wild element is more reeled in than the potent, powerful nose let on. But still very good, almost better. Gentle fuzziness, touches of citrus, gentle grapefruit, lemon and funk. Cobwebs, oak and gentle white wine. The raspberry a bit more fruity into the backend with more yogurt, a gentle acidic jab but really, this is pretty expertly pulled or blended back. A bit of funk, more yogurt and a gentle waft of cheesiness. Gentle white wine fruit elements. Overall, the finish shows a bit of trailing fuzz, sour fruit and nice lactic element. This is sour but not acedic, really expertly crafting a pretty crushable sour with that potent nose. The raspberry is well fermented but still gives some firm life on the nose and into the backend. Really alluring nose as the beer falls just a bit more flat but is quite balanced for a sour.. which I guess is pretty impressive for a smaller, more simpler Wit base. Perhaps a touch flabby carbonation wise, but overall this is really drinkable. Really nice stuff from Block 15.

77ships (4135) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 14, 2014
375 ml. bottle obtained in a trade with digita7693. Split with Kraddel. Pours a very interesting milky pale citrus, faint golden, little white head. Nose is white wine, very mellow funk, very interesting profile, faint vinegar, lemon sorbet, raspberry, pits, fruit itself, touch different from a regular raspberry, some wood, touch lactic sour, very nice. Taste had a great sour profile, lemon, white wine, white wood, great funk, lemon peel, raspberry but a bit different from usual, faintly salty, touch lactic sour, white greap, aftertaste really lingers. Thinned out yeast, rich body. Man this is truly spectacular, might even be the best sour I have had from the USA so far, didnít expect this one to excel so much.

Taste is indeed raspberries, but not at the upperhand . Blended in perfectly . Rather typical american sour in the back , but the raspberries are so nicely mixed in , at the perfect amount of intensity . Aftertaste is sweet-sour maltyness, bit buttery> Very full . Very nice bottle. Even though my expectations were High , this tops it . Way more . Awome beer

gramity (1307) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 7, 2014
The nose has very delicate golden raspberry along with a nice acidity. Flavor is similar. Very delicate and highly drinkable. This was a really impressive offering The white raspberry was a really nice contrast to the standard variety, and presented a much softer acidity. The barrel character was smooth, and the sourness was kept at a level that made it very drinkable.

Bottle shared in London - thanks to Bruce. Pours lightly hazy yellow with a pure, white foam head. Tangy lemons in the nose, some funk, sweat, light acidity. Light sweet flavor, good tart berries, light cereal, hay, raspberry pits. Light to medium bodied with fine, spritzy carbonation. Clean finish, lightly funky, some lemon acidity, a bit of biscuits, nice raspberry jam. Lovely stuff. Very drinkable,

BEENJAMIN (290) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 17, 2013
On tap at Block 15 - Poured a hazy pale golden with a fizzy white head. Overall nice wine like charater, body was a little thicker then expected. Aromas and flavors of oak, cherry, and light raspberry. The tartness was perfect but I think some time in the bottle will round this beer out a little more. Still really enjoyed it!
