Bottle... Pours clear and amber with rose highlights and a small, fizzy, off-white head. The nose is funky, malty and fruity Ė pungent cheese, raspberry acidity and subtle caramel. Medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation. The flavor is tart, fruity and quite clean. There is some light yeasty bitterness for balance. Finishes crisp and very tangy. Bottle courtesy of the ever-generous 50belair!

phaleslu (7226) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 13, 2011
22 oz. bottle via trade with pantanap and brought to me by lushawn- thanks, guys! Pours a cloudy but bright reddish-gold color with a white ring for a head. Beautiful aroma of raspberry, lemon, floral notes, vanilla, oak, cranberries, and just a tiny vegetal note. The flavor doesnít have quite the level of pop as the nose, with raspberries, cherries, vanilla, oak, lemon juice, strawberry, and faint booze. Light-medium bodied, with a tart, fruity mouthfeel and dry finish. Medium carbonation. Sweet and sour, and really fun to drink.

thirdeye11 (5734) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 11, 2011
(22oz bomber bottled 12/4/10) very cloudy raspberry purťe color, frothy tam head that fades quickly. Nose of fresh raspberries, bit of earthy Brett, wet wood funk, raspberry puree through and through with seeds and all. Taste of raspberry, tart, fresh and delicious, a bit funky, woody, some light wood esters, and very well carbonated thatís a bit prickly. A really nice sour that just finishes short of being excellent.

cakanator (452) - South Hadley, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 10, 2011
ACBF on tap. The sour of the show. Light aromas on the nose, but the raspberries really follow through on the palate. Sourness and acidity on the edges with a lingering raspberry finish. Should age really well.

Bottle from bauermj. Big thanks! This pours a slightly murky reddish-brown color (looks a little pink when pouring) with a fizzy off-white head. The aroma is very nice and I spent some time enjoying itís subtle nuances. Tart raspberry but also a lot of grapes too with a lemon citrusy scent blending in well. Itís certainly fruity but also has notes of that musty basement smell and a little bit of oak and plastic. The flavors are both sweet and sour; thirst quenching but sour enough to strike the senses. It seems more raspberry specific here but with underlying wild berries and strawberry. Both acetic and a little citric acid but neither are overdone and both work well within the beer. I keep getting this other flavor that seems like a leafy note; like the vines from the raspberry plant. Slightly dry, although not nearly as dry as Juliet is (but as good, if not better). Great beer.

coharahawk (170) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 22, 2011
Tap at Romanís. Pours a deep purple with minimal head. Aroma is mostly dark fruit with some hints of funk/brett. Complex fruit flavors combined with tartness of tbe brett. thereís a little oak flavor as well. Finishes dry like wine. I was hoping for a tiny bit more sour, but stil really good. Kinda reminded me of a Russian River beer.

1FastSTi (3343) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 19, 2011
Tap at Romansí Pub. The beer pours to a glowing ruby body with a thin white head. The aroma is raspberries with leafy components and a nice juicy wine. The flavor is raspberries, white wine, some red wine. The beer is delicious. Palate has a great balanced carbonation. Excellent texture and medium body.

jstraw (1943) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 18, 2011
Rose amber with scant white head / Cedar-forward nose of raspberries and brett / Light body, tart and acidic, with good finish / Young flavors of new cedar with notes of raspberries and barnyard brett / Needs more depth - wood flavor dominates the fruit and brett character.

brokensail (12466) - Orange County, California, USA - JUN 13, 2011
A: This beer pours an a reddish-pink color with a finger or so of pink head. S: Big time raspberry smell on this one, not surprisingly. A bit of strawberry and cranberry also present. A really sweet, almost candy or sugar, aroma to it, too. A light grassiness is really the only funk. T: Moderately vinegary, but still fairly sweet. Big time raspberry flavor, too. Some other berry notes also on the tongue, mostly strawberry. Lightly grassy with a little bit of straw. M: Medium in body with a medium carbonation. O: If this didnít have the big sweetness to it, I would have really enjoyed it a lot more. As it stands, just a good beer.

Atheist_Peace (981) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUN 9, 2011
On tap at the ACBF. Amber leaning toward brown pour with little head. Sour raspberries and woody funk on the nose. Tangy on the palate that moves toward sour and finishes with a peachy wine note thatís odd...but not in a bad way.
