Red cranberry-colored very pristine pour with white suds on top. Whoa - super sour funky brett and cherry/raspberry aroma, kind of scotch- or brandy-like, some similarities to port but funkier/more sour/tart. Carbonation low, oily mouthfeel, pulpy crisp finish that leaves a film. Very bretty tart flavor: crisp lemon, intense brett sour, sour fruits, raspberry mostly. This is anintense sour beer, enjoyed most on special occasions (for me at least).

Bottle. Dark ruby pour with a slight white lacing. Tart raspberries and sour tones, with some brett aromas. Flavor is very dry, tart fruit and sour tones, but comes off almost wine isn.

pineypower (2974) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Pours a brownish reddish color with a small off white head. Aroma is of fresh raspberries, light sour funk, Some wine barrel notes. Taste is complex, sour/tart/sweet raspberries, some okay barrel, light wine tannins, earth, mild alcohol, some basement. Solid but not sure if it’s worth a hefty price tag.

onceblind (6669) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 30, 2013
Clear amber with a nose of light bactillic sour oak with a small tart aroma of red fruits. Taste is just a bit too dry, but has a nice tart raspberry flavor with big blunt earthy sourness. Not shabby, but forgettable

northropfrye (3101) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 30, 2013
Peach colour with virtually no head. Tart and sweet fruity aroma. Taste is a bit like a candied raspberry jam though quite sour as well, also taste a bit like raspberry cough syrup. Vinous. Overall a nice beverage.

Gachupines (1211) - USA - NOV 30, 2013
Deep red color with an off white head. Aroma is fruity, raspberry is noticeable but not overwhelming. Flavor is tart, dry and fruity but not overly sweet. Nicely balanced if you don’t love really sour beers, just a touch of it. Finishes with just a touch of sweetness without being cloying. Wife: 4.5

Haslinger (902) - The World of Beer, Texas, USA - NOV 30, 2013
5 oz flight from a tap takeover at Provisions market. Damn the nose on this one is intense, fruity, sweetish but tart enough to make the hair on the back of your neck stand up. Yiiikes in a good way. Taste is sour but not overly so, tart yet sweet raspberry. Wow this is a good one!!

jake65 (3244) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - NOV 30, 2013
Bottle, shared at Thanksgiving dinner. Pours a reddish orange with a ring of light beige head. Tart and vinous nose, tannins, wine barrel. Void of any fruitiness at this point, but a little bit does come through in the flavor. Dry, but musty fruit. The tart and vinous elements overshadow anything more than a faint raspberry presence. For a $21 bottle I had hoped for more, but this is still a very nice beer.

You might think this is a Russian style girly beer (a little Nabokov for you), but instead it is a very sophisticated Raspberry Belgian Ale. Fermented with brettanomyces (the little guys who give us that tart zing) and fresh raspberries, this brew is bright yet deep with spices and edges of the fruits natural tart quality to give it a white wine kind of finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MadRobin (2682) - Silver Spring, Alabama, USA - NOV 29, 2013
On tap at Frisco Tap House & Brewery in Columbia, MD. Clear, dark-orange copper with a small head that disappeared quickly and left no lacing. Aroma of raspberry, cherry, Brett sourness, caramel and a light red wine. Taste completely consistent with the nose. Medium/light body and low/medium carbonization. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
