willblake (2647) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - FEB 14, 2010
20100213 At Maxís BBF10, 375ml bottle. Hazy pink color, slight soda fizz. Aroma shows lots of fruit, dusty, wine vinegar. First sip is shockingly, painfully sour. In fact, this may be the most sour beer I have ever had. On top of that, an earthy astringency further punishes the palate. Lots of acetic acid, acrid woodiness, tart fruit linger, continue into the next beer. Pretty fun for the small sample, but wow am I ever glad I didnít try to drink one of these on my own.

fonefan (34282) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JAN 31, 2010
Bottle 375ml.
Clear medium to dark red color with a small fizzy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy fresh raspberry and not frozen as many other fruit lambics, wood, barnyard. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and heavy acidic with a long long duration, very dry dry and tart finish. Body is medium, texture is watery to oily, carbonation is soft. Lovely thanks John for making use this lovely blend ;O)) [20090530]

17thfloor (2429) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 21, 2010
Bottle thanks to davinci! Pours a very clear glowing pinkish red with a small white fizzy head. Nice raspberry aroma that is quickly overwhelmed by lots of vinegar, nostril burning vinegar. Flavor is super vinegar, a nice raspberry vinegar but harsh and hard to drink, super acidic, nice raspberry flavor, but this is salad dressing.

HogTownHarry (6063) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JAN 4, 2010
Bottle ( 375ml - green, corked & caged). Shared with blankboy and garthicus. Some real beer-haters panned this one before me - I shall try not to be intimidated. Pours bright, clear and red, not much head. Aroma - huge acidic lemon/funk/green fruit sourness with berry fruit sweetness - big, unbalanced, but appealing to me. Taste - ACIDIC! - sour green fruit, lemon, wool, shit, possibly battery acid for all I know, but this is cool, jagged-edged stuff, I could drink it down in two gulps, but choose to share and sip (hah! - pussies ...). Mouthfeel is thick, acidic, lively, and .... well hell, this is an experimental sour, you do the math. I liked it. But what the fuck do I know.

garthicus (2658) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 4, 2010
Thanks to HogTownHarry for sharing this with Blankboy and I. Appearance: Light Ribena red with a vague hint of a white head. Aroma: Sharp vinous aroma initially however the raspberries soon shine through with some good sourness too. Flavour: Breath taking, like vinegar - but in a GOOD WAY, brine, but in a GOOD WAY, raspberries for sure, the sweetness comes through but itís outshone by the sourness, this is delicious, man Iíd drink quite a few of them but I wouldnít want to see the poop results the next day ha ha! Tickles my throat.

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JAN 4, 2010
Experimental raspberry. Corked bottle from Solan, thanks! Pinkish red color. Hints of oak, raspberry and lemon in the aroma. Desperately sour, mouthpuckering like pressed lemon juice. Raspberry. Hints of toffee and oak. Low on carbon. Touches the edges of drinkability. Considering all that, really good!

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Bottle courtesy of Ryan at Paulís tasting. Pours a ruby hued brown without any head. Smells spot on for a raspberry vinaigrette. Tons of vinegar, burnt malt, lots of acetic acid and acetone, very nutty. Finishes up with even more vinegar. Borders on undrinkable. On the plus side, this would be awesome with some olive oil, salt, pepper, mesclun mix, goat cheese, toasted walnuts, and dried cherries.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Bottle. Pours a garnet red body with thin bubbles for a lacing. Balsamic and food grade vinegar. Salad dressing, lactic acid, malt vinegar and dam near undrinkable vinegar and acidity. Wow it might take the finish off your teeth. I could not finish a bottle of this.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Pours a nice bright red, low carbonation- and no head. Aroma is extremely acetic- vinegar, salad dressing, rasp vinaigrette but way more sour, decent raps fruitiness but obviously the acetobacter is dominant. Flavor is again extremely acidic- acetic acid, vinegar, red wine vinegar, extremely sharp and prickly, acetone, solvent- reminded me a bit of my Flemish red, although not as prickly- also kind of like Dieu Du Ciel lambics with a bit less solvent but even more aceto in this one! Crazy sour- unfortunately it is an unpleasant way- hurts my throat on almost every sip.
