Pours a nice reddish mahagony with a gushy head that dissapates rather quickly. Sour and tart raspberry flavor. A bit of funk. Not crazy sour, but a great amount of tartness. Really good brew.

Bottle courtesy of Wavers1. <3 Raspberry-mania. I’m not particularly fond of sour ales, and this was no exception. One bottle was infected, one simply proved to be too sour for my palate.

Marsiblursi (3076) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 28, 2010
(Bottle, thanks mybestfriend) Pours muddy brown with orange red highlight. Medium sized, nougat coloured head. The aroma is heavily fruity with raspberry jam up front but there is also room for apple candy, blueberry and rose hip soup. Lots of acid lacto character on the nose. Citric. Cracker-like malt with a whisper of chocolate. Hint of damp basement and vinegar. The flavour is dry and heavy acidic with no bitterness. Both high on fruits and sour bacteria. Lingering citric and raspberry tones in the finish. The mouthfeel tart with a medium carbonation. Medium bodied.

light reddish with a fizzy head. Nice fruity raspberry aroma and taste without being over sweet and with a nice dry finish.

dogfish120love (1106) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 20, 2010
Pours a rusty murky reddish brown with some almost pink hues. Bubbles rapidly approach the surface, but the lacing is minimal. The aroma is vinous and the scent of raspberries is pleasantly overwhelming. The scent of Vinegar is enticing and notes of bubblegum are also present. The flavor is comprised of a slight sweetness from the raspberries accompanied by some serious tartness. The palate has a slight metallic structure keeping it from earning a perfect 5.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 14, 2010
Bottle@Håndverkerstuene, shared with gunnar. Pink-shaded blond two-finger head. Body is opaque, deep ruby. Smell of sour raspberry drops, cherry stones and marzipan. Intense flavor of raspberry-fruity sourness. Both fresh and mouth-puckering. Vinagarish in a pleasant way, with a subtle fruity sweetness below. Well-bodied. Slick. Lingering tart fruits in the finish. Nice all over.

Bottle shared by Eric. Thanks!! Pours cloudy amber color with off white head. Aroma is vinegar and raspberries. High carbonation for the mouthfeel. Flavor is straight vinegar and raspberries. This is a highly carbonated and very tasty brew. Very tart.

Thank you dearly, Dstructo. Our bottle was muy amorosa, a gusher. Lost half the small bottle :( As a result of the overly eager beer, the pour is frightfully ugly. It’s so muddy it looks like tomato juice only with the color of blueberry juice, a dirty bruised red. The aroma makes up for it, though. First whiff is a bowl of raspberries. Nice! Further inspection reveals some phenols, but oddly they don’t get in the way. Not pulling a lot of funk from the aromas but that all changes at first sip when the tartness really comes through. The mouthfeel is thick and thin at the same time, with the thickness coming from yeast. Belying the way the bottle popped, only a mild bit of carbonation is here. Fairly acidic brew, certainly has some of the the Flemish acetic overtones and certainly fun barrel bugs but not necessarily Brett. Complexity is added by a straightforward load of musty raspberries and the mellowing subtle sweetness of the malt. Very enjoyable overall.
