UPDATED: AUG 6, 2012 Big thanks to bmanning for this bottle. A: Pours a moderate amber with some definitely red highlights. A bit disappointing compared with the nose and flavor; given these, I would expect a big, bright pink-red body a la the Cantillon Lou Pepe Kriek and Framboise. S: More than makes up for the "lacking" appearance with incredible notes of fresh, ripe raspberry and a nearly-bracing sourness level. Mostly straight sourness, with a bit of vinegar, funk, and sweetness thrown in. T: Absolutely incredible. This is perhaps the best fruit-containing sour beer that I’ve ever had, certainly above Blabaer and up with my all-time favorite, Lou Pepe Kriek. Nice tart notes of raspberry, hints of oak, funk, and a good amount of residual sweetness come up alongside the puckering sour characteristics. M: Sublime. Incredibly sour, but the dichotomy created by the tart and sweet aspects of the raspberries really works well to bring a complex, cohesive whole. D: I never wanted it to end. Simple as that. Thank you, Lost Abbey. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 05-18-2010

Bottle at Håndverkerstuene, Oslo. Shared with OleR. Pours murky dark amber with a shy layer of white bubbles. Aroma is powerful tart raspberries and some aceton or vinegar.Taste is strong sour fruity, almost burning in the mouth, but a nice malty body makes this an interesting and enjoyable beer, at least for a sweet tooth like me.

en hindbærøl der er rigtig god! Lysrød med hvidt tæt skum. Let, tør, livlig. Sur, syrlig og vinøs. DEJLIG!

Bottle @ Ulfborg Friday Night Tasting Session. Thanks to J&C. Pours unclear pink with a creamy white head. Nose is brett and tart and fresh raspberries. Lively carbonation. Extremely dry. Very funky. Tart and dry end. Great!

Bottled 375ml. A very balanced and delicious. I expected a tad more astringency. Flawless, complex and deeply pleasant. I am not a big fan of oud bruins which have been brewed with raspberries though.

Big thanks to one hell of a west coast man. Pour has a big white head that foams up and then dissipates quickly. No lack of carbonation here. Tartness and mustiness to the aroma. Flavor is very sour at first but then leads into a nice raspberry burst and a murky gritty full bodied finish. Again tons of carbonation to add a little texture to the drink. Finish is long and leaves you a tartness that is on the high end of a presence for a sour. Really a pretty entertaining drink.

GREAT BIG THANKS to my brother, ericandersnavy! Pours a murky brown/pink with beige/pinkish head. Aroma of tart raspberries. Flavor is very sour raspberry and very acidic. Mouth feel is light-medium body with lively carbonation. Overall, damn good stuff!

Served @ Lost abbey dinner @ Monks Café, 2/23/10. There was some mention of this being "double Fruited” Pours deep, murky red with a bit of a brownish hue, topped with a fairly large pink head. Intense, fresh raspberry aroma. Tart raspberry hits the palate first, and the tartness builds following the initial sip. Definitely seems like fresh raspberry; I almost felt like I’d run into seeds. There’s some wood in the background, but this is all about raspberry. Finishes fairly tart. Full bodied. Delicious.
