Pours red in color with a big light pink head. Intense raspberry smell to this one. There is quite a bit of vinegar, too, however. Maybe a touch of acetone. The fruit aroma is very good, but it is diminished a bit by the flaws. Some lemon and grass in there as well. The flavor is similarly raspberry-heavy, which I suppose is the point. A nice bite of vinegar and lactic acid which give this an assertive tartness. Some acetone is still present on the palate, however.

Hazy tan. The aroma is tart. There is a lot of wood to this, along with a bit of deep overripe fruit. Interesting.

(750ml bottle) Pours a cloudy orange body with a spare cream head. Aroma of raspberries, barnyard, horse blanket, and yogurt. Flavor of brett, raspberries, lacto, and lemon.

750ml bottle. ***** GUSHER ALERT ****** One of the biggest gushers in my over 8000+ beers. Josh sprayed this one right in my eyes too - had to flush out my eyes! BBT3 tasting. Poured a (or should I say sprayed a) amberish color. Funky, raspberry, fruity, and somewhat acetic.

Reddish orange pour. Pours, well I’d like to tell you how the bottle poured. But the fucking thing gushed to the ceiling. Lost 3/4 of the bottle. WHAT. THE. FUCK. Aroma is cheesy and berries with a good sour scent. Flavor is not nearly as sour as the aroma. I was really sad to lose most of this on my floor. Dammit.

Bottle... Hazy dirty-orange pour with a mid-sized, wispy, short-lived white head. The bouquet comes across to me as an interesting, but odd, fusion of a Flemish brown ale, Flanders red ale and an aged English barleywine – caramel, brown sugar, sour raspberries, acetic acid, and mild, fallen apple-like oxidation. Medium-bodied with airy carbonation. The flavor is a fruity - cherry and raspberry - SweeTart coupling intertwined with a super-sour, Trinity Old Growth-like acidic component. Finishes fruity, tart, and then moderately dry. I can see where folks might stumble across an acetone/vinegar component here due to all the acetic acid. To those folks, I say “Good for you. You know what you like and what you don’t, but how can you possibly know what acetone tastes like and still be alive?” That said, this one is a bit too acetic. Otherwise, it’s a very nice beer. Bottle generously provided by FlandersNed!

Bottle thanks to sleestak
A huge gusher, glad I opened it in the sink. Cloudy red/golden, no head or lacing, lots of floaters (Raspberry skins?). Aroma is sour raspberries and vinegar. Taste is sour raspberries, vinegar, acidic with a dry finish

Bottle: The aroma consists of tart raspberry, light lemon, vinegar, and a touch of acetone. It’s a hazy amber with a small off-white head that quickly fades to a minimal film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. The flavor starts with a quick dose of moderate tart raspberry. The finish has light-moderate lemon, lemon, and just a hint of acetone. It’s light bodied with moderate carbonation.
