Bottle shared with friends. Dark amber color with slight reddish tints. Tart aroma with hints of raspberries. Flavor is sour but not overly sour, just about middle of the road sour. Refreshing and tart.

JulienHuxley (4246) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 29, 2011
Bottle at GI Clybourne. Aroma: A fieldberry explosion, not only raspberry but blackberries and blueberries, accompanied with balsamic vinegar and light barnyard. Appearance: Red-orangish pour with a small ring. Taste: Very tart upfront with a sweeter fieldberry finish ans raspberry tannins. Palayr: Light bodied and medium carbonation, champagne-like bubbles. Overall: Awesome beer, I’ll see with my other bottle but I think I slightly prefer this one to Juliet.

hopscotch (10083) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 19, 2011
Bottle... Pours clear and amber with rose highlights and a small, fizzy, off-white head. The nose is funky, malty and fruity – 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 (7546) - 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 doesn’t 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 (5782) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 11, 2011
(22oz bomber bottled 12/4/10) very cloudy raspberry purée 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 that’s a bit prickly. A really nice sour that just finishes short of being excellent.

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 it’s subtle nuances. Tart raspberry but also a lot of grapes too with a lemon citrusy scent blending in well. It’s 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.
