dbarnold (1127) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Quality sour. Pours bright red with little to no head, moderate carbonation. It’s tart and sour raspberry, with a puckering finish that’s very dry. Funky yet drinkable fruit sour.

Zlotta (1561) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 26, 2016
Sampled from bottle in front of ’De Bierkoning’ during Carnivale Brettanomyces 2016. Clear, reddish amber, no head. Sourish-fruity aroma of vinegar, wood and sherry. Very sour, slightly fruity taste of vinegar, wood and sherry, followed by a medium long, rather tart finish. Medium body, very astringent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Nice!

Alengrin (4247) - BELGIUM - JUN 26, 2016
Strong sour with raspberries, at Bierkoning during Carnivale Brettanomyces, poured by Goose Island’s own ’innovation brewer’ (cheers Tim!). Moussy, off-pinkish head over a deep copper-hued amber beer with vivid sparkling. Rich and enticing aroma of raspberry pie, raspberry vinegar and sweet fresh red raspberry, sourdough, orange peel, lemon rind, damp earth, wet wood, vanilla, yoghurt, ’horseblanket’. Softly sour onset, very emphatically fruity, sweet raspberry embedded in a general fruit tartness, estery, green plum-like, medium carbo, mellow mouthfeel, bready malt base with a pleasantly rounded feel, fruitiness lingering for a long time both in the actual raspberry sense and in the estery sense, vanilla-like wood tannins retronasally, soft sourishness drying the finish along with a glow of warming alcohol. I’ve tasted many attempts at lambic-like fruit beers from outside of Belgium but somehow most of them seem to lack a bit in complexity - this, however, is a beauty of international class.

on tap at Dobra Zupas in Beckley, WV; pinkish-red color with a nice white head; great, sour raspberry aroma; fantastic raspberry flavor with wine notes and lots of oak; really dry, oaky finish with more red wine notes

Beachmaster (415) - Oklahoma, USA - JUN 8, 2016
On draught. Pours pink, with a small white head. Nose is raspberries and a little funk. Taste is tart raspberries, with a touch of funk on the finish. Outstanding.

Nickls (2316) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JUN 5, 2016
Bottle, 2013 from rotbox. Lightly hazy pink red rose. Berry seeds, light floral note, sour berries and light vinegar and vinous qualities in the aroma. Flavor is sour and very tart, but well balanced, vinous, woody, and dry but with a real berry finish. Lighter body with decent carbonation given the age and how shitty I must’ve treated this bottle.

Some raspberry and citrus and some sour plum. Clear reddish amber pour without much head or lacing. Tangy finish. Good package. Fruity. Bottle pour at Churchkey.

nearbeer (4718) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 29, 2016
765 ml. bottled 06 Aug 2015, indicates 7.8% abv. Red-copper body with a sizzling away, soda pop head. First aroma out of the bottle is toasted oak, but it’s quickly overtaken by fresh raspberry and notes of brown sugar, cream and wine. Flavors of tart raspberry, mild vinegar, cream and caramel. Touches of wine, mineral water and toasted oak in the long finish, maybe a hint of funky cheese as well. Medium body has a smooth, medium-plus carbonation. Acidic tartness and mild astringency provides a refreshing and highly drinkable balance to some big malt flavors.
