JBPortland (1480) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - FEB 2, 2016
375ml bottle pours flat murky pink. Nose is high acid, musty earth, some light oak, faint pink lemonade. Taste is extreme throat burning acidity, hints of notes from the nose but hard to taste anything beyond burning and nail polish. Horrible.

Hanssens Lambic Experimemtal Raspberry 6% Next lets go for the other Belgian. It pours an interesting orange-pink I've never really seen before in a beer but has me thinking wine cooler. The aroma is candied berries and woodsy oak, it reminds me of grenadine.  Medium-light bodied it is very acidic and tart. Berries, nutty almond, sour patch candies and salty. Wow, this is some sour salty raspberry goodness. Incredibly tart but really damn good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ciocanelu (1134) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JAN 26, 2016
Intense orange color with no head. Aroma is intense on the funk and tart fruit. Taste follows with sharp sourness, very acidic, farmhouse funk, intense house made wine notes, overripe fruit, musty cellar, hay, cabbage. Light, acidic and dry mouthfeel. It has intense lambic characteristics but it’s way over the top, it lacks drinkability.

Cunningham (6906) - Halden, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2015
Strange color on this one. Copper pink-ish whit a fine head. Solid intensity in the aroma. Medium (+) body and a fine carbonation. Sour and acidic oh yeah. Not for the faint hearted. But got one friend to try it and he ended his glass. The other ones had enough with the aroma. Yeast, apples, citric and a fine raspberry profile in the flavor.

Dogbrick (11327) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 16, 2015
This beer pours a hazy reddish color with a medium fizzy pinkish-white head that evaporates steadily to a film. Spotty lacing. Aroma of raspberries and oak. Medium body with flavors of red raspberries, oak and yeast. The finish is mildly tart with a raspberry aftertaste. Decent overall.

neongolden (1189) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2015
(375ml bottle from Systembolaget) Pours a lightly hazed dark salmon pink with basically no head. Aroma dominated by fresh raspberries and light raspberry preserve notes, red wine vinegar, soft barnyard funk, some vaguely buttery oak, leather. Palate is fiercely acidic. Lemon juice to the fore, sour cherry skin, raspberry, bit of red currant, light white vinegar, finish has some slightly earthy Brett, oaky tannins, and leather. Sharp acidity cuts through that drier finish and aftertaste like a knife however. A little raspberry in the aftertaste too. Lightish body with basically no carbonation. Honestly this is too bracingly acidic for me to truly enjoy, the other components don’t balance it. Even washes out some of the raspberry on the palate. The characteristic reminds me a bit of De Cam Framboise-Lambiek if not quite as good, and I think as far as lambics go it is the one style I don’t love.

tricksta_p (3336) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - NOV 1, 2015
Bottle at home. Aroma of sour raspberries, oak, Brett, vinegar. Flavour is extremely sour with a dry finish. Body is medium. I thought I’d tasted what sour was, until I had this one. What a monster palate wrecker! Not the most balanced or complex, but this takes sour raspberry to the next level.
