Bottle shared with dasilky, weeheavy and others. Bottle was a huge foamer butquickly subsided to a flat grapefruit colored beer. Strong sour aroma. Very nice. The flavor is not as great and sour, but is smooth and drinkable. Yum

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.

hopscotch (8890) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 2, 2013
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!

In short: A mess of a raspberry sour-ish beer.
How: Bottle 750ml. Consumed when approximately 1.5 year of age. Bottle from WeisGuy, thanks Shane.
The look: A bit of a gusher. Muddy rust color body topped by a fizzy pinky-beige ring of foam.
In long: Nose is raspberry, medicine cabinet, a strange barrel sensation (I swear I could smell notes of bourbon in there?!?!), acetone, cosmetic section of a store. Taste is raspberries, crushed aspirins, white chocolate (!?!), moldy fruits, old wet wood, moss sensation, some vinegary notes, light sourness. Soda-pop carbonation at first and then almost flat after 5 minutes. The vinegar part is fortunately kept under control but other than that this beer is a total mess. I drained pour more than half the bottle, it’s probably a good thing I don’t remember how much this junk cost. This beer was both laughable and disturbing, as laughable and disturbing as a ransom note that says "Draw me a picture of horny unicorn banging a dolphin or you’ll never see your wife alive again".

we’ve got a gusher. Pour is a murky reddish orange with an off white thin head. Nose is heavy on raspberry purée, aspirin, and acetic acid. Strange muddled malt behind. The flavor is more fruity, raspberry heavy, lots of sweetness. It’s not as acetic as one would think from the nose but still a fair burn in back. Odd dark malts resinate in back with light aspirin mid to back palate. A little grain on the back of the tongue, fair carbonation and burn in back.

gushes considerably upon opening, dark amber, thin white ring. Nose is heavy fruit acetic, lingering sugar adds date and chocolate notes, oddly contrasted, light brine, almost no fruit. Flavor shows more raspberry, light seed, bit of synthetic sugary finish with heavy chest burn.

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 thanks to bu11zeye. Cloudy orange brew, small head. This thing looks like a smoothie. Nose of berry and wood - chalky and slightly sour.

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.

On tap at Dark Horse takeover at Crunchy’s...A nice red color, smell was hard for me at first because it smells very much like vinegar. The taste is just wow I didn’t know a beer could be this sour. If anyone remembers them, to me it was like Warhead candy in your mouth. Great raspberry flavor though with a slightly acidic burn going down.
