Rating #2300! 10/9/10. Thanks, Tim! 375mL bottle. Wonderful fresh tart raspberry aroma thatís already hinting at white cheeses. Big sour hit up front that fades to nice fresh raspberry with a hint of cheese, followed by a huge dryness with tons of wood. Very nice.

Huge thanks to ericandersnavy for sharing this bottle! Poured a bubbly, cloudy brown body with almost no head. Intriguing pink highlights when swirled in the glass. Aromas of Sweet Tarts, light fruityness, granny smith apples and "other good tart things". Initial "flavor" is very sharp, almost acetic fruity tartness that produces a flood of saliva for me. Wow! Then a tart/sour profile thatís cherry dominant along with just a hint of berries. The tartness of the berries/cherry are amplified by the active, fizzy, tingly carbonation. Medium to full mouthfeel. This beer is much more complex than Iím able to describe and Iím glad Eric shared it with me.

Another stunning piece of lable work from this great brewery. The pour is deep hazy red without any real treansperentsy topped with a rosa inch high head that sticks to the edges of the glass. The nose is crazy wild respberries with a great sourness. The taste has like wise the raspberries up front - and its a lot of berries with a long lasting lactic berries-feeling with a sour finish that is a little bitter. The palate is medium. Really nice beer. Thx for sharing Mikkel

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 itís 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.
Earlier Rating: 7/17/2010 Total Score: 3.3
A decent offering, well worth the money and iíd possibly get it again. Just didnít knock my socks off. iíll 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.

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
