Sampled at an esbls tasting. Hazy woodish golden. Unique looking. Sour woody nose with fruit and vinegar. The flavor is mostly vinegar sour funkiness. There is fruit and wood, too.

Orange. Apple and orange aroma with a touch of caramel. Really nice but not much puckering sour. It ends a little watery is my main and only complaint. Otherwise the beer starts perfect and smells great.

blomster (266) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 5, 2011
Bottle. Reddish orange pour, off-white head. Amazing aroma, both sweet raspberries and sour raspberries. Can’t imagine a raspberry beer smelling better than this one. The raspberry goodness continues in the taste, tart bot not really sour, finishes a little bit on the sweet side. Average carbonation, long, lingering mouthfeel. If only it had a bit more sour taste and finish....That said, I really like this beer.

On tap at Madison’s - Pours ruby red, with next to no head. Light bretty nose, with fruity raspberry notes, and a layer of funky dryness beneath it all. Taste is more of the raspberry and sweet malt that flows smoothly through the finish. not a lot of funk, but it’s dried out nicely and a bit earthy. Smooth and slick with little to no carbonation. This was surprisingly easy to drink, and just fantastic.

radagast83 (5703) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - SEP 9, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2012 22oz bottle. Poured a orange color with a thick, white foamy head. Aroma was sour raspberries, with a touch of citrus and light malts. Flavor was sour raspberries, tart, funky, very enjoyable and drinkable despite the slightly more carbonated/fizzy body than I had expected it would have.

The only thing better than world class beers are free pours of them. After securing a generous pint of Vanilla Bourbon County Stout I moved on to the main attraction - Goose Island’s excellent Belgian influenced sours. Every year they blow me away even though I prepare myself for the great samples. This is no exception and one that should definitely be on everyone’s radar.

Aroma / Appearance - The rose gold body shimmered and glowed with life. A thin head sat above the top until the very end. Raspberries, Belgian yeast, and medium grade brett snap the senses into full attention.

Flavor / Palate - Light raspberry jam is followed by an intense sour aftertaste. Somewhat lighter than a Cantillon or La Folie it still manages to eat at the throat. In many ways it reminds me of Madame Rose - another world class sour sitting in my cellar at the moment. Perhaps I should open it this evening.

On tap at Madison’s. Poured warm, fiery orange with a nice cap of whitish head. The aroma picked up sour raspberry and oak upfront, with plenty of related funk to keep it moving through the nose.. engaging and excellent! The flavor held serve.. sour raspberry and oak throughout, with raspberry meat and complementary pale malts beneath.. again funky and engaging.. dry finish with oak, Bretty and lacto bugs, and more delicious raspberries. Medium-bodied and sour all the way through the palate.. excellent feel and flow.. loved it!

22 oz, bottled 12/10. Such a pretty crimson pink with a thin ring of white bubbles. Nose is raspberry, cherry, cheesy funk and cranberry. Medium body, slightly sticky, with fizzy but restrained carb. Sweet, tart cherry, strawberry with toffee tipping the balance. Finishes dry with leather and aluminum adding a nice contrast to the fruit.
