gnomungus (38) - - JUL 2, 2014
Sharp, sour fruit switches to porter flavor with some mild smoke. Neither component is memorable and there seems little reason for the match.

BLADT (451) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 12, 2014
Tap pour. Dark, ruby brown. Thin head. Mild smoke nose. Raspberry behind. Taste is fruit juice and light ash. Sweet, almost cloying. Very unbalanced.

mcberko (5917) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 24, 2014
On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a dark purple brown with a small beige head. Nose brings out tart raspberries, some light toasted malt and gentle acidity. Flavour brings out loads of fresh pithy raspberries, moderate tartness and gentle acidity. Very well-constructed, with just enough tartness. Very good.

nealblind (660) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - MAY 14, 2014
on draft! Clear dark brown pour slight red. Looks watery. Aroma of raspberry jam. Tastes like twizzelers made from real strawberries and raspberries. Slight tang and roast. A bit medicinal when alcohol & juice flavors mingle. Sharp palate. Stick to the regular salspeich sour porter instead of this one!

jtclockwork (7885) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 3, 2014
Draft at Brouwerij Lane. Pours purplish brown with pinkish white head. Nose/taste of mostly fresh raspberry with light tannins, cocoa and light sour lacto. Lighter medium body.

harrisoni (13144) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2014
On tap at The Rake Borough Market. Dark brown almost black beer no head. Sour raspberry flavour is attractive. Some light chocolate flavour. Raspberry pippy. Some sourness but not extreme. Very drinkable I thought. Lacked condition and was way too cold. Good.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 15/20
Scopey (6136) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2014
Keg at the Rake. It pours cloudy deep brown with a small dirty beige head. The nose is earthy, roasted malt, dark chocolate, tangy berry and raspberry jam. The taste is tart raspberry and jammy fruits upfront, then roasted malt, toast, tang, cocoa, dirt and some acidity in the background. Light-Medium body and fine carbonation. Balance is very good and aids the drinkablity. Perhaps a touch thin, but still rather nice overall.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
Theydon_Bois (7895) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2014
Keg at the Rake, 30/03/14. Murky dark mahogony brown with purple tinges and a thin beige covering that soon vanishes into the ether. Nose is tarte raspberry, light cherry skin, earthy cocoa, dark toffee notes. Taste comprises chocolate dipped raspberries, earthy, tangy black forest gateux smoothie, lactic ring. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Decent easy drinking soured porter.

Koelschtrinker (9999) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAR 6, 2014
Dunkler säuerlicher Antrunk. Angenehme Fruchtnoten, etwas holzig, erfrischend. Spritziger, säuerlicher werdender Abgang. 11/10/12/10//10

12oz tulip on tap at Red Star Bar, which is in the Whole Foods. Damn, how white of me. Surprisingly the beer prices are rather good. This is $8 and it would probably be a dollar an ounce elsewhere. So, the only downside is having to deal with the loud crappy music in this "better-than-thou" environment. But wait, that is the deal with numerous bars in town. And to be fair someone should have combined the experience of food shopping with drinking, and not in the sad Irish way, a long time ago. It is particularly helpful at Whole Paycheck because it helps to dull the shock of the final receipt. Oh, the beer. Technology makes rating beer so much more fun. I can do this to numb my hatred for my current environment. Color is very dark brown, almost black. To dark to see through. Ghostly white head fades to a sticky lacing. My wife is out of town, so that’s probably the only reason I’m here. I didn’t want to got to a bar by myself but this is a supermarket, so its ok. Aroma is earthy black malts with a light berry character. The entire aroma is very breezy, just swings by the nostrils like a cool wind chill on one of those hot fall days where your body’s been hoping for a cool down. Its a bit like those chocolate raspberry liquor candies mixed with seltzer. Seltza, salsa, salsa, seltza, which is it. Its a very light almost thinned out body. I dislike it when sour beers turn this way. Ehhhh. Thin sour body. Flavor is thin acetic cherry despite the supposed raspberry in this. Its not heavy acetic but they are emphasized with the thin black patent malts. PLOP!
