UPDATED: NOV 7, 2013 Thx! to Kraddel for this one. 375 ml. split by 3. Pretty dark & hazy raspberry with little pinkish head. Nose is HUGE mashed raspberry with yoghurt sourness, lots of pits, incredible. Taste is sour yoghurt, lemon acidity mixed with raspberry pits, tart vinegar, red fruits mash, raw with lots of fruits & heavy on the pits,... Very lovely. Great sour with a great real yoghurt profile. So much fruits, really oodles & oodles. Way better than expected & truly impressive. Impeccable stuff here.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a hazy reddish copper color with a mostly lasted frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy sour yeast and tart berry aroma. Medium to full body with a tingly texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & tart fruit flavor with a medium to heavy tart & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a muddy rusty deep raspberry color with a quickly fading bubbly khaki foam. The nose is huge sweet raspberry, vinous bright acidity and a touch of malted caramel in the background. The palate is a bit overwhelming... huge sour raspberry, dirty wood, mushroom, vinegar... a bit underwhelming and just sour. The flavors are muddy and not very balanced. Not a fan.

Raspberry sour, bit acid.. oaky. Uhh.. usually these kind of beers is more plastic and chemical.. this one is pure beauty. Wasted with my girlfriend.. liked every sip. btw.. nice appearance as well. Maybe price/performance is not the best, but really.. must have

2013 edition. Massive foamy tan head that stays for ever. Reddish purple opaque color. Aroma is a massive nose of raspberries with a hint of wood. The flavor is initially raspberries but follows with super tart funkiness. This is a one of a kind great beer.
