4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a ruby red, hints of pink and along with a minimal pink head. Aromas of big Raspberries, vinegar, perfume, light breads and hints of vanilla. Taste is in your face tart raspberries. Some cherry chapstick to companion the slight vinegar tang. Seemingly light bodied, but has a slick/oily texture that clings a bit to the tongue. Giving extras waves of lingering tart berries. Finishes moderately dry with some grassy/bready notes to take the edge off of the tart berries. Really, really enjoyed this.

Bottle shared by a kind soul at Kulminator. Pours intense reddish pink with a tiny light pink head. Intense fresh raspberry juice aroma’s, together with lemon and lime peel. Highly sour body wbut with an explosion of fresh fruits. Lacks a bit of debt and complexity but nice, very nice (makes one think about De Cam Framboise). Only little tart.

From the April 2014 3R6P gathering. +++ Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a murky pinkish-orange color with a small foamy white head that faded and left no lacing. The aroma was tart and sour with a vague fruity presence. The flavor was very tart and sour, chalky and had some berry. Long tart and sour berry finish. Medium body.

Bomber. Pours a red color with a large pinkish head. A huge fresh berry nose, vanilla, oak, very funky. Tart, oak, massive raspberries, very fresh tasting, a bit of vanilla. This comes in much like a lambic and is full of Brett goodness, but the show is all in the fruit additions. Very good. Actually awesome.

Bus beer at RBWG 2014. Pinkish red, no head. Smells like pink lemonade, with a whiff of balsamic vinegar. Nice clean, crisp citrus flavor. Hint of stone and vinegar, as well. Pretty darn enjoyable...
