Bottle shared by Odeed! Thanks Jake. Not as good as Angelís Share; it has carbonation! Cloudy red with a small pink tinged head. Nose of raspberries, Cheracol syrup, and a minor tart note. Flavor is raspberries, yeastiness, and slight sourness. Super excellent fruit beer but not nearly sour enough for a sour.

Sampled on 4/23/2010. This sour ale pours a muddy brown color with some reddish highlights from a 375ml bottle. Small to medium sized pinkish foamy head, with nice lacing and good retention. The aroma is semi sweet raspberry a touch of tart and some wood. A medium bodied sour. The malts are fruity and sweet, lots of semi sweet raspberry flavors and a whole lot of tartness. There is a huge sour/tart assault at the start, which fades into a nice raspberry flavor in the middle. This beer finishes with a nice fruity tartness and some oak. Yet there is a whole lot of tartness going on. Excellent carbonation. Very nice beer. Now I wonder how it going to age, and can I keep from drinking the bottles I have left long enough to find out. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is tart.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2010 Draft @ Johnny Browns. Pours a swampy reddish brown with a small bubbly head. Tons of semi tart raspberries, diacytal, dry oak and other berry fruits. Brew was both sweet and sour on the palate with tons of fruit and dry oak. Pretty damn tasty with a kick ass label.....

appearance can either be a 1 or a 5 depending on if you are ok with a brown murky look. Iím ok with it, especially considering how great this beer tastes. lots of fresh rasberries, some wood, big punch of acidity though more on the back end. mix this with 20% temptation for a real treat, trust me. should age well i guess, assuming all the sludge sediment material doesnít react bad. Tried on tap at downtown johnny brownís for the bitter / sour nite. Great beer, not sure it needs to age much longer as itís drinking great now.

UPDATED: MAY 10, 2010 Served on tap at the brewery on release day. The appearance is a deep murky/cloudy raspberry red. Almost looks like tomato juice or a bloody mary. The flavors and aromas are strong with horse-blanket funk, raspberry puree, oak. The mouth is well carbonated and full. Excellent sour!

Tap at Publican. Pour is deep reddish brown with a small pinkish head. Aroma is tart with notable raspberry and a light funk. Also some woody notes poking through. Not even sure if itís wood aged, but I smell a little. Smells wonderful. Flavor is loaded with raspberry jam, light funk, a perfect amount of tartness, and a light dryness in the finish. Very tasty.

Draft on tap at Publican (Chicago, IL). Pours a. Nice rusty reddish brown, a small tannish head that dies to a sturdy film, aromas are rusty, red raspberries, fruity, a touch of cherry, caramel malts far beneath with vanilla, caramel, and sour. Initial is stronger sour, raspberries and lacto, a good sturdy sourness, caramel mixes with lacto, sour, brett, sour raspberries taken over by bacteria. Mellow, but highly sour a touch of hay, straw. Medium bodied, bery sour surprisingly, with light caramel, toffee, vanilla. Bretty funk, good oaky feel, sour is hardcore with a sweet feel upfront. Top notch. Solid sour base, a bit rusty, finish lingers well with sour raspberries, lacto sticking well. Top quality sour by Tomme. Wow.

pantanap (3351) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 8, 2010
UPDATED: APR 9, 2010 Tap at publican... Pours a dark cloudy garnet red with a thin off-white head... Sweet yeasty red fruit and raspberry aroma. Hugely fruity and very welcoming... Tart and acidic raspberry with a huge sour bent through the middle and the finish. Very much satisfying with a great sour berry red fruit component and a gratifying sour acidic nature.
