4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle care of theydon bois in Craft Beer Co. Colour is cloudy pinkish bright red, nice white foam head. Nose is tart sour, burnt caramel, fresh picked raspberries, white sugar meringue, farmyard. Taste is beautiful. Fresh fresh fruit raspberries, tart sour green apple, white sugar meringue, bit of farmyard. This fruit on this is amazing. Fresh and perfectly balanced with sour. No syrupy crap. Awesome beer. Wish I had more of this!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This thing pours pink, pink, pink. A nice light frothy pink on the surface. Smells of raspberries, lemon, lactic, grass and some more raspberries and their pithy, vegetal character. This beer is very, very razzy. Plenty of raspberry notes, some dry tartness, lacto tartness, some gain and peppery sharp notes. It’s tart, but has a hollow middle for me. Medium on thin bodied with moderate on hi carb and a semi dry finish. This one is good, clean and approachable.

2012 vintage from Hoppypocket, thanks man! Pours a really bright red with a thin pink-ish head that leaves insane lacing. Aroma is of sour, fruity (raspberries...) and funky old cheese. Taste is tart but not too much with nice real fruit flavors. Not much sweetness and acetic acid level is low, only some lactic goodness. Body is light, carbonation moderate. Mighty quenching and quaffable. Awesome, really!

(375ml bottle) 2012 version. Lasting frothy pink head atop a red, non-carbonated body. Nice sourness, somewhat vinegar and club soda. Cherries through the finish. Good and thirst quenching.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sample at a bottle share. Deep pink, nearly red pour, pink head. Nose is just fleshy raspberry forever, with maybe a little vanilla from the oak creeping in. Taste is a little acetic up front (the Temptation base maybe?), but then it’s all about the raspberries again. Sparkling carbonation, a whiff of almond on the finish. Superb.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. The pour is a sweet raspberry color. The aroma is a fruit sour bomb. The taste is a smooth sour, better than most.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle shared by tom10101, thanks! pours hazy light and beautiful pink without a head. raspberry (duh), fresh ones, perceptible citric on first whiff, bit of herbs, lactic, but again mostly citric, cranberry-like, some cheesy notes, faint yeastiness - in which aspect temptation shined, but it seems overshadowed here. low to flat carbonation, light body, medium acidity. very nice but not nearly as outstanding as temptation..

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours pink/dark salmon with no head. Aroma is of raspberries, fruits, cherries, stinging acidity. Taste is of sourness, acid, raspberries, fruits, some acetic. Palate: Light body. Overall: Very acid/sour; too much to be an outstanding beer. Still very good.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle (375 ml). 2011 vintage. Thanks to Levi for this one! Bright dark salmon with no head and no lacing. Strong aroma of fresh raspberries (both sour + sweet) along with acidic and acetic notes and light malt presence. Taste is moderately sour with, again, a lot of fresh and sour raspberries. The acetic aspect is a little more (a tad too much) present along with light malt and wood. Light to medium body. Low carbonation. Moderately dry. Mouth puckering. Very good raspberry Sour! Intensely fruity (especially the aroma). A tad too acetic and could use a little more complexity, especially considering that the base beer (Temptation) is so complex.

2012 Vintage : Pour is raspberry in hue, with a fine bubbled pink head in this glass - it eventually rings the glass, with some light lacing present here ; the nose is soft - raspberry juice, grassy hops, and light barrel treatment here; the flavor profile is initial modest in nature ; more grass, raspberry juice, as well as raspberry seed- and it then moves to a stronger souring character with lemon tart and earthen oak - there is a lingering, prickly sourness as well as carbonation at the finale - Thanks Dakine!
