Pours purple, after the great gush. Raspberry and sugar aroma. Lacey. Medium mouthfeel. Sour, but a very good drinker.

gracefullypunk (667) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 6, 2010
On tap at Brouwer’s for Sour Fest. Pours a murky red brown color with a fluffy rose head. Aroma of sun-ripened raspberries. Sour, of course, with a dusty taste, florals and raspberries. Crisp palate. Delicious.

darkguardian (728) - Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2010
375ml thanks to FlacoAlto. Pours a murky kinda ugly red with a nice pink head that leaves a long lasting foam for the duration. Nice lacing too. Nose is lactic and creamy with subtle raspberry and wood. Flavor is quite bracingly sour up front before settling into a super dry milky middle and a semi sweet raspberry finish. Despite the puckering acidity up front the middle and finish of this beer makes it very drinkable. As it warmed more wood and malt body appeared. Very very good sour.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 31, 2010
Bottle. Pours a murky purpleish brown with floaters and an initial 2 finger off-white head that faded to a constant topper. The nose is light vinegar, raspberry skin and brackish water. The taste is raspberry, tart unripe raspberry skin, light funk and vinegar with a nice long-lasting sour finish. Medium prickly mouthfeel. Very tasty!

hopscotch (10426) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 31, 2010
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Murky brown ale with a large, fluffy, off-white/pinkish head. Nice fruity, raspberry bouquet - very acidic, a touch acetic and a smidge funky. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and jazzy carbonation. The flavor is fruity and very tart with yeasty, aged hop bitterness. Lots of raspberries overlying some very nice funk. Tart, lightly bitter, drying finish. World class beer courtesy of giarcsr!

sebletitje (8270) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 31, 2010
cheers to tpd975 for the share. pours cloudy mahogany/ruby red, thin off-white head. aroma, definitely a lot of raspberry in there, some oak and fruit tartness, possibly some chocolate malts? flavors, lots of raspberry leaving a nice prickly tart and sour for a light vinegary mouthfeel with mild presence of oak. Fizzy yeasty (champagne?) palate and faint addition of some chocolate and caramel malts.

MeadMe (1551) - Fishhawk, Florida, USA - MAY 29, 2010
A: Pours a ruddy amber with an above average off white head. No retention or lace. noted. S: Aromas of very tart raspberries, sort of earthy like the pits have been ground into this one. Light yeast but not much else. T: Very very bold raspberry. More tart than sour, but there is a bit of sweetness as well. Hints of red wine, and very very mild oak. One dimensional all raspberry, but very good. M: Medium in body, smooth, nice zippy carbonation.

thirdeye11 (5914) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 29, 2010
(375ml bottle thanks to bu11zeye) opaque ruby red with light tan head. Nose of huge raspberry, web barrel, funky. Taste with tons of raspberries, maple, alcohol, wood, tobacco with a tart fruit finish. Astringently tart, with a soft carbonation and huge fruit linger. One of the best fruit sours I’ve had!

SrSilliGose (3327) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - MAY 29, 2010
tap at brouwers during sourfest. pours a deep red with a small pink tattered head. aroma of medicinal raspberries.light eathy funkiness. boat load of fruit up in this. also some wood and light cocoa dough that mixes in with the raspberries. moderate sourness. pretty good beer, but didn’t blow me away. like mixing a cantillon with a rodenbock grand cru and adding a boat load of slightly stale raspberries. great beer, but faced some stiff competition at sour fest.

Thanks a bunch for sharing this Jason! The beer pours to a murky red body with a thin whitish head. The aroma is huge. Red raspberries, deep sweet caramelized malts, and cloud berry preserves. Perhaps some leafy rhubarb components. The flavor is rich in the red raspberries, but has a nice rich malty complexity. Seemingly they know what they are doing on this brew. The palate is really rich and sour/tart but still has a significant residual sweetness. Ultra complex flavors and textures. Heavily carbonated, but seemingly it works well.
