3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Appellation. Pours a ruby colour with a thin beige head. Aroma of balsamic vinegar, raspberries, oak, lemon and Brett. Very Belgian tasting and also quite dry. Similar flavours with lingering lemons, raspberries and plenty of oak. Moderate carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel. Lovely, if just a little thin.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2011 bottle to my Duvel glass. Pours clear blush red with a quick off white soapy head that fades to a little fizzy bubbles rising in the center of the glass (pretty cool looking). Aroma is tart raspberries and cherries with some faint leather. Taste has a nice tart sourness of more raspberries and sour cherries with subtle funk of leather and farmhouse. Palate is medium and has gentle carbonation with an acidic drying finish. Very nice refreshing drinker!

Bottle. Clear dark amber pour, very little carbonation, nice effervescence and a nice sour raspberry aroma. Flavor is nice jammy sweet raspberries, mildly tart brett and slightly sour on the finish. Very nice beer, hoping to be able to get my hands on another bottle of this.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 22oz. 2011 vintage, 9% ABV. Just a thin layer of beige head on top of the slightly hazy golden-orange body. Ligthly candyish raspberry aroma with some caramel hints and a touch of sugar. Tart, almost lemony raspberry flavor which is also a bit sweetish and almost artificial. Not much alcohol detected. Medium body, tart. Some sweetness in the finish. Well, not a bad one in any way, but I’m not impressed. 120326

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a nice red/pink color. Smells like a clean crisp sour. Smells a bit like vinegar but not overly acidic, also getting some raspberry in the nose. Taste subtle sour funk and fruit. Nothing too impressive but still well done.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2012 Tastes like strawberry or raspberry yogurt. A nice fruit beer but coudl ahve used some more sourness and acidity.
Edit: Had an older bottle cellared at proper temps and wow it got better, sourness is there, a fine brew.

Beautiful red coloring, and an extremely tart aroma. Sharp and tart initially, but after it settles on your tongue the raspberries and sour notes of flowers come through nicely. Very good (very expensive) beer.
