22 oz bomber into a tulip glass. #1345, bottle on date 11/12/11. A - Deep, clear red with some brown tints. A small off-white head forms but fades away to some edging. S - Oh ya! Strong raspberry preserves and some fresh brettanomyces. Really vibrant and pleasantly funky. The finish has some oaky tannins and what can only be described as...burnt plastic. T - Does not live up to that wonderful aroma. What happened? There is some fresh raspberry with some faint notes of funky brett, but its very tame and muted. Aftertaste is slightly buttery with some oak barrel notes. Mouth feel is light but highly carbonated. O - Wonderful aroma, boring taste. I was really expecting more from this beer. Perhaps it just needs some age for the brett to start working up, but as a fresh wild ale it is really tame.

From notes. First reviewed 8/26/2011. 2010 bottle. Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a tasting glass. Lolita pours a light cranberry brown color with translucent edges. A small eggshell cap rests on top and fades pretty quickly. The aroma is good, but it really feels one dimensional, even after I keep going back for another whiff. Dark, tart raspberries in full force. Some light malt sweetness is present up front, but that is not the focus at all. This is sour and acidic, with a good amount of raspberry flavor. Some other indistinguishable berry flavors hang around, and I do not get a lot of yeast or other depth. A light oily grassiness on the finish. This is dry, light, and acidic. There is a light sweetness up front and a light oiliness on the finish. The carbonation is medium and fine; it neither adds nor subtracts from the beer. Finding other flavors and depth beyond raspberry takes some effort, and there is nothing about it that really moves me. Compared to some of the other complex beers of this style, this is fairly forgettable.

Bottle thanks to Ed. Pours a red orange hue with a medium white head. The aroma is fruity with some vinous notes and light funk. The flavor is very dry and vinous, the fruit is not huge but throughout, a bit of must, smooth and very drinkable. No extreme tartness.

This was my favorite beer at Dayton Ale Feast...plus it was awesome that they paired with with Friesingerís chocolates. Honestly, I really got a limited amount of the raspberry notes. This really reminded me of Red Poppy. Let this warm up a little and you really get a sour punch. Very well done.

22 ounce bottle thanks to Ed. A brilliant nose of raspberry, wine notes, some wood. A nice tart raspberry character. Nice beer.

650ml bottle at 9%. Pours ruby red with no head. Aroma is stilton, sharp, some fruit. Taste is sharp and sour raspberries to start. Stilton on the dry finish.

Slightly musty and very tart in aroma. The flavor is extremely tart and mildly sweet fruit. Very biting in the tartness, definitely not for everyone but this was awesome to me.

phredrik (1024) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - FEB 26, 2012
Bottle at tasting. Amber red pour, quickly dissipating head. Aroma has fresh raspberries up front, acetic and vinegary, brettanomyces notes, oak, a hint of malts and caramel, but mainly the bretty funkiness along with the fresh fruity sweetness. Taste is rather sour, vinegar, the tartness comes off somewhat astringent, the brettanomyces is very pronounced, and of course a good deal of raspberries covers the whole palate. I think this beer does well when it comes to the raspberry freshness as well as the brettanomyces notes in the aroma. But the astringency that comes with the tartness is a turn off.

This beer pours a light bodied Rose pink in color with a lot of carbonation and a quickly dissipating off white head. The nose features a touch of sweet raspberry before becoming very dry and offering aromas of oak aging and Brett. Itís very Belgian on the nose. Itís nice and features more berry as it warms. The flavors too begin with soft fresh raspberry sweetness before becoming very dry and tart. I get a good amount of Brett. It has nice flavor and no aspect is over the top. It drinks very light in body with a good amount of carbonation. Overall this is a nice, drinkable sour with intriguing flavors. If this was cheaper it would be far more appealing but I donít think Iíd buy much of this at 18.99. Nice beer though. Hopefully the other two sisters are available here soon.
