terrible, terrible bottle bomb. bottle was stored for over a week without toching, gently opened, and was left with less than 5oz of brew :( projectile to the ceiling style bomb, foamed nearly all of the beer out. now, once the beer is in the glass, its beautiful. looks like a raspberry, opaque deep red to burgandy, muddy and hazy, with chunk of white yeast like seeds. aroma is slightly sour, slightly raspberry, not offensive, but not really impressive either. just smells good, not great. taste is a lot more, more sour, more rasp, mour funk, more earth, and still blended nicely. palate is nice, seems possibly a tad flat after usinf up all its fizz upon opening, but the aftertaste and finish def leave you wanting more. i am def wanting more; a full 375ml as compared to my 150ml or so might lead me to detect more things and give it a higher score, but my glass and the bottle are empty. :/

Bottle shared by Odeed! Thanks Jake. Not as good as Angel’s 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. I’m 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 doesn’t react bad. Tried on tap at downtown johnny brown’s for the bitter / sour nite. Great beer, not sure it needs to age much longer as it’s 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 it’s 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.
