Fred82 (2119) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 14, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2010 12oz bottle thanks to mikesgroove. Rating 1000 !!!
Appearance : Damn this cork was hard to get out. Huge pop sound. Pretty clean first pour (a bit less than half the bottle). Deep dark red. Big head that fades away quite fast.
Aroma : I smell the raspberries a foot away from the glass. Complex raspberries with some funk and sourness. Quite tannic. Very fruity.
Taste : Tannic and woody. Vinous. Very sour. Some raspberries but not as powerful as on the aroma. Carbonation quite fizzy. Finish is very vinous and sour. Carbonation is fizzy. Finish is very long. Fruity/tannic taste stays for a very long time. Very dry.
Overall : Awesome nose. Very fruity with some strong tannic grapes notes. Very nice fruits on nose. Taste is a bit harsh and VERY tannic. Taste has nice fruits and is very complex but it’s too tannic for me. Nice sourness. Not my type of sour sadly. Edit 101017 : Fixed typos.

On tap at Churchills Sour Fest Pours into the glass and looks like melted crayon wax, hard to believe its a beer. Nose is deep and juicy ripe raspberries, hints of the cable car cultures that this was apparently aged on. Taste is quite complex, tons of raspberry, not too sweet, but still some residual fruit flavors, sourness ranges from puckering sour to sharp vinegary acidity. A little hard to drink a full glass, but profile changes so much with the temperature it was nice to keep on hand for 30 minutes and just sip on.

A decent offering, well worth the money and i’d possibly get it again. Just didn’t knock my socks off. i’ll say it, overrated, moderate to light sourness, medium raspberry flavor, kind of a two note candy flavored beer. not for me, i like a good framboise, but this one, overcarbonated, was not for me.

luttonm (3414) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 7, 2010
Huge thanks to trevor211 for finding me a bottle of this. Pretty raspberry-tinged ruby brown pour with red tint head. Nose is deep amber with a twinge of some funked sour and sweet raspberry notes. complex and inviting. Body is spritely but full, deep heavy feel. Starts mellow and nice before rolling into a deeper fruity funk. Pretty mellow but very well balanced sour with a wonderful fruit overtone. Very tasty

olsvammel (4407) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 7, 2010
Bottle at SBWF 2010 (Brill). It poured a very very hazy red-brown liquid. Sour and fruity. Very thick body and intense flavour, yet well balanced and very pleasent. Great beer!!

Anker (723) - Hillerød, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2010
Bottle kindly shared by plovmand, thanks a lot for this one also buddy!! :-) Pours a hazy red colour with a pink/tan head. It has a nice intense aroma of sweet raspberries with a hint of acid and syrup/caramel to it. The flavour is very dry and acidic/tart with loads of unripe raspberries and a hint of oak and lime. Finishes dry with tart raspberries.

Plovmand (7102) - Helsinge, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2010
Bottle provided by Daknole. Thanks a bunch man! It pours hazy pinkish red with a creamy pinkish white head. Loads of raspberries, light acidic, berries, sweet caramel and citrus. The flavour is wild berries, sour raspberries, acid, barnyard, citrus and some sweetness. Very balanced with a nice sour vinegar kick. Great stuff.

omhper (21765) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 5, 2010
Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival. Cloudy copper colour, small head. Aroma of tart raspberries and vinegar. Woody with marked acidity.Medium-full bodied with a solid malt backbon to back up the puckering acidity. More in your face concentrated sour flavours than complexity, but darn good!

Sample @ SBWF. Pours red-brown. Sweet and sour raspberries, slighlty vinous. Easy to drink, just vinous enough to get interesting, but still quite relaxes and sweet. Lots of raspberriy sweetness with a touch of vinegar.
