3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A: the aroma is relatively muted. The sourness is at the forefront and in short can be described as vinegary/lemony. Underneath the tartness there is a subtle hint of sweet raspberry.
A: pours a murky Burgundy. There is no head nor lacing.
T: the taste is complex. First, the sourness masks everything else--this beer may be one of the sourest beers I have had. However as the sourness passes, the raspberries leave in their wake a subtle sweetness. Lastly, the booze makes itself known as the sip ends.
P: subtle carbonation and booze make for a heavier bodied beer--very good though.
O: overall, this beer left me disappointed. However, with some age this beer would probably be fantastic.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a basic orange with a faint white lacing that traces the rim of the glass. Notes of raspberry and rubber with subtle vinegar and sweeter berry notes. Tart without being overwhelming and sweet upon finish. The body is thick stylistically and the carbonation is dense.

Lots of raspberry in this one, thanks Americo. Pink coloured body, fruity aroma. Fuller mouthfeel, also with assertive carbonation. A good tartness, a nice bottle to share. Some other berries there, lending balance, strawberry and some wild blueberry.

2011 bottle. Pours a hazy red with minimal head. Smells of raspberries and other tart fruits, and taste is similar, as expected. Tastes like an almost-ripe raspberry. Very good beer.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a cloudy amber color with a moderate head that leaves great lacing. Mild scent of raspberries, wine, and yeast. Some of the taste reminded me of olive juice. Taste was smooth and mellow with raspberries, wheats, and yeast. Rich, creamy, and very delicious.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle) Pours clear amber red with a fast decreasing head. The aroma holds raspberries up front with subtle undertones of spices, malt, dough and a light sting of brett. Simple but yummy nose. The flavour is dry and medium acidic with raspberries, citrus, mild spices, dry malt and a whisper of funk. The mouthfeel is tart with a near medium carbonation. Citric finish. Light to medium bodied.
