2012 vintage 375mL bottle.Aroma has moderately strong raspberry notes but this is tempered by some toasted malt notes and hints of chocolate. Light caramel, toffee and oak notes as well. Pours brown with some ruby highlights. Tall moderately thick tan head with pretty good retention and moderately high lacing. Small legs.Flavor has moderately strong acidity with medium high raspberry jam notes. The malt notes are moderate and help differentiate this from a Framboise. Light toasted bread and chocolate notes with medium toffee and faint caramel. More of a raspberry candy than a very sour raspberry beer (though it is fairly sour). Light oak notes. Lingering acidity and jam in the finish with a hint of oak and toasted bread. Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with medium carbonation. Low acidic astringency and low alcohol warmth.Overall a pretty enjoyable sour beer but I like standard Framboise more. This reminds me of a Flanders style sour with raspberries added. Quite a bit of make complexity to balance the acidity and berry notes.

12.7oz bottle, shared by an awesome person at my last tasting. Totally hazy dark red orange color. Thin off-white grayish head. Few dots of lace. Amazing huge raspberry and creme aroma in the nose, very nice. awesome big puckering sour taste. Very tart. Bigger body. Kind of creamy, with a dry finish. Dry, soft carbonation. Like a raspberry cheesecake, very nice. Awesome, lactic raspberry sour, in a great way. A lot of yogurty, creamy flavor. Great.

Draft. Nice to see a sour brown with raspberries instead of cherries, excellent candy like raspberry tartness.

UPDATED: NOV 7, 2013 Thx! to Kraddel for this one. 375 ml. split by 3. Pretty dark & hazy raspberry with little pinkish head. Nose is HUGE mashed raspberry with yoghurt sourness, lots of pits, incredible. Taste is sour yoghurt, lemon acidity mixed with raspberry pits, tart vinegar, red fruits mash, raw with lots of fruits & heavy on the pits,... Very lovely. Great sour with a great real yoghurt profile. So much fruits, really oodles & oodles. Way better than expected & truly impressive. Impeccable stuff here.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a hazy reddish copper color with a mostly lasted frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy sour yeast and tart berry aroma. Medium to full body with a tingly texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & tart fruit flavor with a medium to heavy tart & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer.
