Wow, this is rated like shit, I guess I am the only one to like it besides daknole. Strange. Nose of fresh raspberry, wood, jammy wine, a little funky yeast notes. I think it smelled great. Pours dark red with an off white head and lace. Flavors of fresh raspberries, tart and real, did not get any artificial notes, jammy wine, woody barrel notes, a little chewiness and funk in the finish. Dry and freshly tart, nice carbonation. I really liked this shit alot. Maybe I got a good bottle?

Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours garnet with a thin oyster head and a red berry aroma. There is a hearty malt flavor with lots of fruit and an oaky vinous finish. A nice blend of tastes.

Bottle #270/2400. Pour deep brick-garnet with a thin film. Bright fruity nose of raspberries, oak and yeast. Aroma continues to impress as it warms. Medium sweet, medium tart flavors. Very fruity with a big presence of oak. Medium body, good carbonation, oily texture and a medium tart finish. More framboise than sour. Very nice.
