Really nice color pour, red with a fizzy head that dissipates pretty quick. Tart sour raspberry aroma. It is pretty carbonated, and it is more tart than sweet with a touch of oak. Raspberry is a nice change from most cherry sours. Palate is fruity and earthy. Overall, nice sour.

650 ml bottle, 2011 vintage bottled on 11/12/11. Served in a Unibroue tulip, the beer pours a hazy reddish/amber color with about an inch light tan cola-like head that fizzled away pretty quickly. Not much lacing, either. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like sweet and tart raspberries, oak, lemon peel, and some red wine/grapes. It tastes like tart and sweet raspberries, oak, red wine, earth, and a bit of lemon. Itís more tart tasting than sweet, but the tartness isnít close to being overpowering at all. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, itís a bit thin and is well carbonated. Itís also easy to drink. All in all, I think itís a good brew. But for $15.99 a bottle, Iím not sure if Iíll end up buying another bottle to age or not.

Beer5000 (5120) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 5, 2012
650 ml bottle @ Geokkjers Lambic Farm, courtesy of Meilby. Slightly hazy pink/amber body with a small and fast disappearing off-white head. Aroma of acidic raspberries and slightly artificial flavored raspberry candy. Flavor is sweet and sour raspberry and not so much more. Not bad, but far away from the sour ale and fruit ale style I prefer. Too much candy flavor and too little depth.

Big thanks to mdfb79 for providing this brew to Saturdayís tasting. Served in a SAVOR wine glass. Pours a nice light orange color with some pinkish hues. Thereís a bit of a white head and some spotty lacing on the way down. The nose carries a good dosing of raspberries plus a bit of oak. Thereís a good bit of earth and moderate funk behind that as well. The flavor isnít quite as strong and integrated, but is nice nonetheless. Light-medium body with a good bit of acidity through the finish along with some dryness. No detectable alcohol. Really nice.

mcmisko (354) - New York, USA - APR 3, 2012
Pours a cloudy amber with a short lasting white head. Smell is fruity and fragrant with clear lush red wine notes. Taste is tart with red berry flavors, as well as spice and some sweet malts. Body is med. Carbonation is soft. After taste is tart with a touch of fruity sweetness and has good body to it. A great sour ale. I havenít had many of this style before, but I feel like this is one of the good ones.

FURLYSURIOUS (263) - Orono, Minnesota, USA - APR 1, 2012
Pours a glowing ruby with a quick fizzy white head that fades completely within seconds. Gorgeous beading. The wine character pulls through strongly in the nose. Bitter and sour fruits - cherry, raspberry, grape plus a fresh kind of funk. Complex. The beer is very light on the tongue. Heavy carbonation hits before catching the real flavor. Starts with sweet, ripe fruits on the front and glides back to a strong sour funk on the back of the tongue. The wine character holds on between sips. Sour enough to keep it interesting but tart enough to keep it drinkable.

BeerCast_Rich (1905) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 31, 2012
[1pt 6fl oz bottle, courtesy of Benjii] Red, effervescent beer with almost no head. Rising carbonation. Classic fruity sour aroma from the Brett. Cutting raspberry on the palate, finishes extremely quickly in a fruity woodiness - like balsa rather than oak. Juicy and sharp at the same time [300312012]

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 31, 2012
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.
