SSKD814 (854) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 3, 2011
A- Body is a completely transparent rose hue-pours with no head. S- I like the nose of this brew. Slightly tart, acidic raspberry. Nose is a very good balance of sweet and tart with a very mild presence of wet oak barrel in the background. T- Mild to Moderately sour at first with an acidic tartness and a highlight of both tart and sweet raspberry flavor and a very mild oak presence. The tartness intesnifies for the finish and a moderate amount of acidic tartness lingers. M- Medium weight, slightly thin body that is completely flat. D- This beer is a nice sour overall and highlights the raspberry well. Its not very complex and the fact that there is no carbonation really detracts from the otherwise well put together brew. Serving type: bottle

Transparent grapefruit-red color, no bubbles even when I gave it the special "Iím buzzed" poured from 12 inches above the glass. Nose of manure, light dust and raspberry, refreshingly tart. Completely flat body following appearance, light paper and raspberry flavor with manure and a citric finish, also some very light acetic acid, all of it causing jaw pain at room temp. Itís tepid as hell and could use more CO2, but its still rather enjoyable.

cpetrone84 (1678) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 28, 2010
A-pours a light ruby to deep orange color with little to no head at all. S-the nose has some nice barnyard funk to it, hints of leather, sweet raspberries and a nice bit of sour comes in behind. T-the taste has some funk to it, barnyard and a touch of dry leather. but this is overshadowed by a flat body that really thins out the beer. the raspberries are watery in the back with a fair bit of sourness. there is also notes of acetic acid detracting from the flavor in the back. M-lighter body, smooth on the palate. very dry finish with a faint hint of carbonation. lacking big time in the body and carbonation. D-this is watery and lacking any carbonation. the nose was alright but the flavor is much lacking.

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 11, 2010
Bottle. Pours clear reddish pink with absolutely no carbonation or head. Moderately tart aroma, with lactic acid, oak, and raspberry. Wood and raspberry hit the palate first. Oak fades, the raspberry persists and is joined by lactic acid that builds towards the finish. Mild raspberry finish, with acidity lingering in the background. Medium body, with no carbonation. Tasty, but fairly mild and accessible.

WeeHeavySD (3361) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 7, 2010
375ml via trade with xarmancarlox, drank from my troubador glass. Nose is big and punchy, tartness exudes even from a distance. Heavy sour flavor, with a vinegariness that is reminiscent of rodenbach grand cru. Raspberry comes through, but its not as present as Iíd like.

Thorpe429 (5016) - , Illinois, USA - DEC 1, 2010
Pours a bright, clear watermelon color with almost no head or lacing. Smell is raspberry and a good amount of lactic sourness. Taste brings good raspberry flavor; oddly sourness doesnít come until the swallow. Leads to an odd mouthfeel. Strong drinkability given the fairly muted flavors.

oteyj (2130) - New Hampshire, USA - NOV 27, 2010
Deep clean red pour with no head. Lots of acetic acid and oak in the nose, with hints to oak and raspberry puree. Lots of vinegar like acidity in the flavor with juicy raspberry and light funk. Thin palate with puckering acidity and a dry finish.

Where the Wild Beers Are, 2010. Pink color. Raspberry aroma and flavor, but the aroma promises sourness before the flavor. Flavor is sour with the fruit. A very nice raspberry lambic, but not as sour as I expect from Hanssens.

375 ml bottle shared by lushawn- thanks again, Shawn! Pours a clear red color with no head or visible carbonation. Aroma of sour funk, ripe raspberries, oak, and balsamic vinegar. Flavor of sweet, tart raspberries, lemon juice, oak, lactic acid, and cherries. Light-bodied, with mild carbonation and a tart, sour mouthfeel. Really nice raspberry character and not overpowering sourness.
