Draft at HopCat, Grand Rapids. Hazy red-orange-brown body, thin loose cream head. Nice sour, funky nose with raspberry vinaigrette, sugars and cobwebs. Body fairly dry, tart, with loads of raspberry and tannic oak. Cobwebby with light dry wheat notes. Nice depth.

The beer pours a dark clear red, almost like a pinot noir with a light pink head that doesn’t have much carbonation. The aroma is light, a little sweet raspberries and a bit of funk at the end. Its balanced between the two which is nice, but not strong enough to really wet my palate. The taste reminds me of cranberry juice, a little sweet to start then just a bitter tartness to it. I love sour and tart but this isn’t in the form of a wild ale tart, but fruit tart which isn’t a nice distinction. I can taste no alcohol which is probably good since its a 10% beer, but a little would be nice to break the bitter. The feel is super light with a dry finish.

Draft @ NotB. Light red pour with little to no head. Barely any tartness or sour flavors here, very sweet raspberry, some oak and light whiskey notes. Aroma almost smells like cough syrup. Time might help?

A Sim rate (Extreme Beer Fest Night of the Barrels): Smells like raspberries and a bit of blueberry. Sweet like Rose’s grenadine. Needs a bit more sour finesse. Looks like soda - bright red & pretty clear. Disappointingly medicinal. Sweet but sickly. It needs more sourness!

They ran out of Donut beer before I could get some but replaced it with this. Reddish pour with a light head. Aroma is raspberries and low levels of tartness, a little one dimensional. Flavor is nice raspberry fruit and some raspberry seed, Relatively tart but not enough imo. Relatively nice but doesnt really have enough tartness or funkiness to be a lambic, more of a fruit beer feel.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAR 5, 2010
Draft at EBF. Pours a dark cherry body with an off white head. Sweet grenadine aroma, very sweet and slick like a Shirley temple, hardly a sour or a lambic more like an uber sweet fruit beer. Dangerously diabetic, but i was okay with this a warming whiskey tone, raspberry iced fruit with a very low tartness from the raspberries. For the style yeah its shit, but as a beer i found the small sample well enough.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - MAR 4, 2010
EBF 2010 Session One: Ruby pour with good clarity and a wispy off white head. Raspberry aroma- a bit candied- mildly tart- no funk/bugs come through. Slick- a bit sweet and candyish. Raspberry sugars- some residual candied flavors. Not dry nor tart enough. Also lacking the funk this style should display.

Pouring at EBF’s Night of the Barrels. Pours a ruby red with no head. Smells spot on for cough syrup. Thought I had Robitussin in my cup instead. Nutty, sweet, rather gross. Finishes up with a faint light sourness. Ick.
