3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber into tulip glass, cloudy rusty amber color with minimal off-white head. Aroma of tart raspberry jam, sour funk, vinous and faint musty wood. Taste adds notes of hay, grain, grapes, balsamic vinegar, vanilla, oak, faint spices and very light earthy hops. Light body, moderate-low carbonation, dry with some lingering tart funk on the finish. Very good complex sour wild ale, prefect for my 800th rating!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
765ml bottle via trade. Pours a deep pink/almost red with a white head that fades fast. Aromas of sweaty brett, raspberry jam. Smells tart. Flavor is medium tart and semi dry. Flavors of dry red wine, raspberry yogurt, cherry pie crust without the filling. Nice. Heavily carbonated yet light on the tongue. No alcohol detected. Finished tart and dry with prickly carbonation teasing the tongue. Pretty damn decent for a macro brew.

Sampled at 2011 RBWG. Pours clear amber with a thin tan head. The nose is white pepper and unripe fruit. The taste pretty much follows the nose with some light funk thrown in at the finish. Light prickly mouthfeel. Nice.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a hazy copper/amber, with a slight rose hue. Zero head and very little carbonation. No lacing. Aroma is nothing but sour and oak with an awesome balance of raspberry and citrus. Absolutely delicious. Mouth is the same. All sour and oak. Rediculously sour and pungent. A very rewarding treat.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle thanks to myknewcraft, thanks a lot Joey! Pours a clear orange with red highlights, no head hence no lacing. Nose is really fruity with raspberries sticking out but there is also some unfortunate (but light) nail polish that I cannot appreciate. There is also some light vinegar but that I can live with and even enjoy. Taste is nicely tart and lactic, or at least the acetic is under control and it is really pleasing. Flavors are of a nice red wine and raspberries, really fruit forward. Mouthfeel is vinous and the acidity is never too much, really fun to drink. There is some alcohol to be felt but it isn’t necessarily bad. Body is medium, carbonation as well. Overall this was really nice, the raspberries felt real and the acidity really well dosed.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Brouwer’s for Migration Week. Candy red pour, like a cider. Big punch of raspberries on the nose. Flavor follows suit, with a slightly phenolic after. Not too shabby, but it could use some work. One-dimensional.

Pour is a cloudy amber with a cool tan to pink head. Aroma is tart almost all raspberry and brent yeast. Tart and refreshing with lite raspberry and tons of brent yeast flavors. It does have a crisp white wine like finsh.

Bottle. Almost clear deep red/brownish liquid with minimal white head. Aroma of red berries, barnyard, raspberries, lemon, apples and light vinegar. Taste is dry and light to medium sour with notes of raspberries, lemon and barnyard. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Nice stuff.

Hands down the best sour/wild ale I’ve had the pleasure of drinking. Beautiful cranberry color and fizzy. The flavor is so well rounded, not one dimensional. Refreshing, tart, fruity, awesome.
