Face scrunchingly sour with a nice funky aroma. Almost burns on the way down. Pretty good!

Bottle @ Dan’s house. Bright, darkish orange appearance with basically no head. Quite oaky, raspberry puree, dark cherry, tangy, fairly funky aroma. Low to no carbonation. Super rich, tangy raspberry, fairly woody/oaky, dark berry, funky, super tart/sour flavor with a somewhat burning sour, tangy finish. Pretty intense.

Pour out of 375 mL bottle is slightly hazy orange-red with thin to no head, aroma has notes of big raspberry, vanilla, lemon, lactic notes, slight hints of funk but lots of lactic in there, some slight raspberry fine. Taste is big old raspberry sour with vanilla, lemon, lactic grassy notes, some more lactic, burning acid notes, no carbonation hurts this a bit, but lots of lactic burning with some nice raspberry fruits.

6/16/12. Bottle at the Cajun Sourfest. Hazy pinkish orange pour with a small head. Funky fruity and cheesy raspberry aroma with bits of graininess. Tart flavor with raspberry and skins alongside cheesiness and graininess. Light, low carbonation. Eh.

I believe this bottle has gone but there are other posts about totally non carbonated bottles. It has a beautiful hued red orange color. Aroma of raspberries lactic acid oxidation. Taste the same with some earthiness and a lot vinegar. Strong oak tannins for gritty front to an oily body. I am betting I would say nice things if it had some life in it still

Pours deep ruby with minimal pink head. Nose is earthy raspberries, mild lactic notes, tart, mild yeasty and oaky notes. Tastes of tart raspberry, earthy, with finishing lactic notes coupled with the dominant raspberry flavors.

AR (1000) - Georgia, USA - MAY 4, 2012
Strong raspberry aroma. The ale is very tart and strongly flavored raspberry. Wonderfully combined with artisan cheeses (Robusto and Pyrenees Brebis Herve Mons), this beer is a great after dinner sipper.

First time trying this one, served alongside the kriek and gueuze. A - Pours murky pink with no head what so ever, it is dead from the start and never gets better. S - Smells of raspberry jam and TONS of vinegar sourness. Some dry earth tries to cut through the sourness but it fails, this one is gonna be painful. T - Starts off with a bit of pithy raspberry skin and some nice light sweetness quickly being enveloped by the intense lactic sourness that dominates the taste for the duration of the experience. Finish retains quite a bit of the sourness, leaving the pallet dry long after consumption. M - Slick body with intensely sour flavors and no carbonation what so ever. When I gave it a swirl it got a tiny bit better but that faded all too quickly. O - I heard that this one might be a bit of a letdown and boy was it. Dead from the start, way too much vinegar flavor. At $14 a 375ml, I won’t be buying this one again.
