3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The bottle was from 2007, at Beer Bistro (Toronto). It poured cloudy copper with sapphire undertones; the head was salmon coloured and foamy. The aroma had notes of: hay, barnyard funk, sour berries, and lemon-juice. The taste was heavy sour/tart that finished medium astringent; there were notes of: the aforementioned aroma notes. The palate was full-bodied, has medium carbonation, was quite sticky, with a long finish. Overall, this beer is something to salivate over.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
75cl bottle (2010). Lovely rosy pink pour. Aroma is full of tart raspberry, barnyard funk notes, spices, light citric notes. Taste is so assertive: tart zingy raspberry flavours fill the mouth, some teeth-coating fructose sweetness, nice lemon juice, light spice. Lingering sour raspberry and yeast funk. Stunning.

Aromas of raspberries, caramelized sugar, bretta
Taste has raspberries, honey, sugar, bretta
Very nice taste with good balance between sweetness and sournes but it feels like it almost tips over into a too sour ending

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2009 bottle. Red kool aid in my glass but seriously cloudy red pour, little bit of white carbo head. So we poured this and everyone took a sniff..there was a giant pause as most of us were not smelling what we expected. I think the term is barnyard there was a lot of that..some sour funk..tart ..hard to describe but very different from what I’ve ever really smelt from any beer. Taste was fantastic, lots of carbo, plenty of tartness, some oak and lingering fruity sour finish..extremely complex. Need to try a fresh bottle next but this was great.
