UPDATED: JUL 21, 2011 normal bottle at dak’s on 6/6/10 and later off of sparky’s hand as it was gushing down my sink. muddy orange pour with a monster foamy head which is splattered with yeast particulate. it smells like tart raspberries, red wine vinegar, wood, cinnamon, green leaves, pickles, burgundy red wine and chalk/minerals/sweet tarts. the flavor is a nice balance of raspberry fruity sweetness and acetic acid with herbs/green leaves, wood and salt mixed in. it is not the most sour thing but it is a nice refreshing amount. it is crisp and tart but full of slurry. 9/5/8/3/15/4.0

Bottle, purchased and shared at Toronado San Diego. Deep burgundy color with an opaque center and a light amount of sedimentation. Beautiful head formation and lacing. Very well carbonated; a good change from some of the Abbey’s other bottled flat disasters (eg Angels Share 2008). Complex aroma sour yeast, lemon citrus and tart berry. Flavor follows suit with grainy biscuit on the front that transitions into a pleasant raspberry bite. Moderately sour throughout, with a lasting note of barnyard.

Blake (396) - Orange, California, USA - JUL 26, 2010
Had on tap at Stone Sour Fest 2010. Pours a reddish-brown with good off-white / pink head. Aroma is strong raspberry as would be expected with a bit of yeastiness and some sour acidity. Taste is wonderfully smooth. Lots of raspberries, sugar, very sweet and at the same time tart. Sweetness lingers through the finish. A very nice brew.

VikingHammer (506) - Lynnfield, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 23, 2010
Red pour with a medium sized pink head. Or at least, I think. This bottle blew up in my kitchen. I was able to save half a glass. Nice aroma of raspberry and some wood. Moderate sourness complimented the berries well. A nice brew besides the fireworks.

phaleslu (6343) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 22, 2010
375 ml bottle shared by xmarcnolanx- thanks again, Marc! Pours a cloudy, dull, red-orange color with a small off-white head. Aroma of tart raspberry, sour yeast, funk. More fruit shows up in the flavor to complement the loads of raspberries, namely tart apples and pears, along with lactic acid. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a very fruity, sour, puckering mouthfeel. Finishes dry. In two words: raspberry, sour.

17thfloor (2430) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 22, 2010
Bottle. My 3rd or 4th sampling of this. Pours a murky darker purplish red with a smaller fizzy pink head. Chilled it way down to avoid the gushing reported by others. Huge huge raspberry aroma, like New Glarus Raspberry Tart, some cotton candy, light acetic, strong sweetness, touch of honey, sugared raspberries. Flavor is on the sharp and sweet side, plenty of acetic, tart raspberries, medium/strong sugar, straight forward and simple, somewhat harsh acetic finish, the oak is a noticeable element but on the lighter side. I blended another bottle with some homebrew Beliner weisse and it came out very nice. Medium bodied, lightly syrupy, lively active carbonation. I don’t know why but this one is just slightly too harsh for me. I do enjoy the Cantillon similarities though. Okay... finally, I’ll relent... this is pretty damn good, even though it is still just as harsh as it was 3 months ago it has melded a little better... I’ll bump it to a 17 overall.

xmarcnolanx (929) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - JUL 18, 2010
Replacement bottle from Tomme Arthur. Aroma is intense raspberry, fruity sweetness, lactic sourness, and funk. Very pungent raspberry sourness. Appearance is hazy dull brown, like I took a piss with dried blood in it. Taste is sour, extremely raspberry, tart, funky, lots of lactic sourness, oak, lots and lots of lactic sourness. Wow. So much raspberry and sourness. Finish is intensely sour and raspberries. Damn.

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 18, 2010
Pours a deep, cloudy crimson/purple color...thick like puree..purple tainted light tan head. Nose has raspberry notes complete with crunchy seeds, but not much complexity over that. Flavors combine the vivid raspberry with puckering but sweet accented sourness...nice and clean and certainly vivid with his raspberry-ness...dessertish for sure, and relaxing.

bottle thanks to bleeng. Shared at July Houston RB Tasting. Pours a cloudy, dark brown with an off-white head. Nose is of super-tart fruit. Taste is of raspberries. Mouthfeel is super mouth-puckering and sweet. Great!
