Bottle. My 3rd or 4th sampling of this. Pours a murky darker purplish red with a smaller fizzy pink head. Chilled it way down to avoid the gushing reported by others. Huge huge raspberry aroma, like New Glarus Raspberry Tart, some cotton candy, light acetic, strong sweetness, touch of honey, sugared raspberries. Flavor is on the sharp and sweet side, plenty of acetic, tart raspberries, medium/strong sugar, straight forward and simple, somewhat harsh acetic finish, the oak is a noticeable element but on the lighter side. I blended another bottle with some homebrew Beliner weisse and it came out very nice. Medium bodied, lightly syrupy, lively active carbonation. I donít know why but this one is just slightly too harsh for me. I do enjoy the Cantillon similarities though. Okay... finally, Iíll relent... this is pretty damn good, even though it is still just as harsh as it was 3 months ago it has melded a little better... Iíll bump it to a 17 overall.

Replacement bottle from Tomme Arthur. Aroma is intense raspberry, fruity sweetness, lactic sourness, and funk. Very pungent raspberry sourness. Appearance is hazy dull brown, like I took a piss with dried blood in it. Taste is sour, extremely raspberry, tart, funky, lots of lactic sourness, oak, lots and lots of lactic sourness. Wow. So much raspberry and sourness. Finish is intensely sour and raspberries. Damn.

Pours a deep, cloudy crimson/purple color...thick like puree..purple tainted light tan head. Nose has raspberry notes complete with crunchy seeds, but not much complexity over that. Flavors combine the vivid raspberry with puckering but sweet accented sourness...nice and clean and certainly vivid with his raspberry-ness...dessertish for sure, and relaxing.

bottle thanks to bleeng. Shared at July Houston RB Tasting. Pours a cloudy, dark brown with an off-white head. Nose is of super-tart fruit. Taste is of raspberries. Mouthfeel is super mouth-puckering and sweet. Great!

375 ml cork and caged bottle shared by Pineypower, thanks Dean. Knowing beforehand that this one was a gusher left us well prepared. Dean opened this one inside a ziplock freezer bag and luckily we did. Gusher is an understatement, violently erupting is a bit more accurate. Of course this is one ugly ass beer, a murky purpleish brown body underneath a giant ugly beige head and tons of chunks floating around. Aroma is awesome however with lots and lots of super tart real raspberry and acidic notes. The body was much fuller then I was expecting with average carboantion despite th crazy explosion upon opening. This is one super sour and funky reaspberry beer. Itís basically like eating a raspberry flavored sour patch kid. Really good stuff.

Bottle sampled at the July Houston RB session thank me! Pale red with a super tart, spicy, fruity nose. Tons of flavor rolling out of this glass. Taste is of raspberries sunk in a woody, tart, tangy compilation of flavors that are difficult to put on paper. This beer explodes with flavor and is so easy to drink. Well done on this one.

Sediment in the bottle, so I stuck it in the freezer and as a precaution put it in a large freezer bag when slowly pulling out the cork. A few seconds go by and I think Iím in the clear, but then the gushing starts....Pours in the glass and looks like a melted raspberry daiquiri, fruit is sticking to the glass and a muddy reddish color with a light pink head. Very nice aroma of sweet and tart raspberry, this one smells amazing. Taste is a nice balance of tart and sweet, with a lingering raspberry flavor, some funk and hardly a tell of the 7%. Very tasty brew.

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 A: Took forever to get the damn cork out. Eventually went to the corkscrew. Murky, muddy red-brown-purple body. Quite a bit of diversity in color depending upon the angle of the light. Bubbly head quickly receded. Spotty lacing. S: Tart, lightly sweet raspberries. A bit of oak. Not as in your face as I was expecting. T: Delicious. The raspberries here are sublime. A little sweet and a little tart. At no point do the flavors tip to one extreme or the other. Again , the oak is there in the backdrop adding some depth. M: Velvety. Light-medium bodied. Good carbonation (did I really say that in relation to a LA beer?). Nice finish that lingers just a second or two, allowing the raspberry flavor to really be enjoyed. O: After the first sip my initial thought was "I wish this was a 750ml." I really enjoyed this beer.
