Big thanks to Adam for sharing. Pours a cloudy red with a very small head. Aroma is raspberry jam, sour fruit, even a bit of citrus. Taste is raspberry pie, with tart fruit and pie crust, orange zest, woody, seedy, sour fruit. Not extremely complex, but an enjoyable offering, the fruit is front and center balanced nicely by an overall tartness.

Bottle shared by Ari, thanks! Pours a cloudy amber with a light brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a nice deep raspberry note that is slightly tart and a bit of oak, funk and grains. Flavor has a good amount of raspberry that has a nice tart note and a good backing oak and funk backing.

Bottle, pours murky amber off white head. Aroma has raspberries, vanilla, nutty. Flavors have raspberries, seedy, vinegar, vanilla, acidic finish. Spritzy feel. Pretty decent but rather muddled too.

radagast83 (4417) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JAN 8, 2013
Sampled from bottle. Poured a reddish, brown color with a tiny fizzy white head. Nice tart notes in this one. Light vinegar, raspberry notes, some barrel character. Fizzy character breaks up some of the tartness there. Quite enjoyable.

Thanks, Moll. Nose has a good raspberry character and faint earth. Good acidity and fairly easy drinking. Could use some complexity.

Huhzubendah (2405) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 5, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2013 The beer is ruby to orange in color with a prominent raspberry aroma. The flavor does indeed bring a healthy dose of raspberries with some oak, funk, malt, yeast. Light in body with moderate carbonation. Easy to drink and quite tasty.

Bottle poured into glass. Big thanks to Brewkkake for sharing this bad boy! Tons of raspberry in the aroma and flavor, lingers for quite some time on the palate. Perfect balance of tart, funk, sour and fruit flavors. Outstanding!
