Bottle, thanks yespr. Hazy orange coloured with a huge off-white head. Fruity and perfumed aroma of raspberries with acidic notes. Fruity and light acidic flavour of raspberries and oak. Tart finish of raspberries.

Vikingbrew (193) - Colorado, USA - SEP 28, 2010
Enjoyed this brew at the 4th Anniversary party. Dark red/purple color with a medium pink head. Amazing raspberry aroma with lactic character. The taste is a well balanced raspberry and lactic sourness. A very enjoyable beer. I may have had a few too many of these at the festival.

Ungstrup (29992) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2010
Bottled. An unclear red-brown beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of red berries, brettanomyces, malt, and caramel. The flavor is sour and woody with notes of red berries, malt and brettanomyces, leading to a very tart finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

Hoptagon (239) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - SEP 25, 2010
375ml. Bottle. Pours a reddish purple color with a big frothy pink colored head. Fantastic aroma of dried raspberries and barnyard must. Flavor is puckeringly sour with a huge balsamic note and the sourness appears to be mostly lacto and pedio. Really complex flavor profile beneath the sourness with a refreshing layer of sweet and tart raspberry puree. Heavily carbonated with a palate similar to bubbly champagne. Finishes with a note of wet wood and a lingering tartness. Can’t overstate how well balanced the sourness is with the raspberry sweetness. Definitely a big winner and a must have if you have been hit by the sour bug. I hope this becomes a yearly release.

punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - SEP 25, 2010
Rusty, reddish brown pour with a big but short-lived white head. The aroma is packed with tart and sweet raspberries with a strong smell of fresh straw from the malt. Huge acetic and lacto sour flavor with tart, fresh raspberries, balsamic vinegar, and peppery spice. Dry, heavily carbonated, champagne like body.

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2011 shared 375ml bottle on 8/13/11 - purchased at Lost Abbey/Port. deep red pour with lots of bubbles and a small off white head. lots of funk on the nose with tart raspberries and oak. medium to full body with a very sour mouthfeel. big tart raspberry notes, oak and funk. big nasty sour ale!

sample from the pitcher @ GABF on 9/17/10. murky brown pour with no head. tart nose with deep raspberry notes. medium body with layers of oak, raspberry, sweet malts and a general sourness throughout. huge tart raspberry cake finish. wonderful!

slowrunner77 (6708) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 13, 2010
didn’t know if this was going to be a sweet fruit beer or a sour funky beer going in, but open popping the cork...sour it is! Yay!! Smells cidery in it’s sourness, with some fresh raspberry and oak in there too. very nice looking brick red with pinkish head. nice body. well carbonated, but full and round in the mouth. the flavor wins it - riddiculously complex. mouth puckerignly sour and aggressive up front, although you get used to it after the first couple sips, but it’s not subtle. even so, there are so many layers underneath to enjoy. the raspberry is eveident and fresh, but plays a supporting eole, and there is a defined woodsie character as well. this is a great beer, but at the price, definitely a rare treat. i like this slightly better than the highly regarded Red Poppy."

deyholla (7712) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 12, 2010
Bottle shared with others. Poured a hazy deep red amber with an off-white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was full of very sour raspberries and slightly acetate giving an odd olive note. Flavor was similar with very sour raspberries that became a bit acetone.

nimbleprop (5567) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 8, 2010
375ml bottle pours a translucent, ruby amber with a creamy, rose colored head. Great raspberry aroma, tart cherries, flowers. Flavor is raspberry cobbler, malty, sweet, cookie dough, tart. Finish is very tart. Sort of one note.

BuckeyeBoy (3249) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 7, 2010
Bottle thanks to ditmier. Pours out dark amber/red topped with a small tan head. Aroma was of berries mostly raspberry, sour, funk, oak, and yeast. Taste was more of the raspberries along with the sour/funk and some candy sweetness.
