thome50 (1233) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - MAY 31, 2012
Bottle 2012. Pours a deep brown/maroon with huge frothy pink head. Definitely not a flat abbey beer here. Nose is full of raspberry with some wet tin and a medium brett funk. Taste is very fruit forward with the raspberries coming out in the front and then fading at the end to a mild sour finish. The oude bruin elements make for a nice base beer to compliment the fruit. Overall, great fruit forward American sour.

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 18, 2011
375 mL bottle from the brewery, served in a snifter at a tasting at Dan’s. Pours reddish brown with a moderate tan head. The head fades quickly to a thin remnant, leaving a small amount of lace. The nose is intensely sour, with notes of raspberry and oak, and touches of caramel and earth. The flavour is intensely sour throughout with plenty of raspberries and oak. The finish is average in length, sour and crisp. On the palate, it is medium in body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a nice sour ale but the raspberries are a bit too dominant for my taste. 2011-07-09

JBPortland (1210) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAY 3, 2014
375ml bottle thanks to bytemesis, it was on my wants list. Pours muddy murky red brown with a finger of pink head. Nose is acidic sour vinegar, acetic, musty rotten fruit. Taste is overly sour acidic musty fruit, red vinegar. Finish is acid burn, nail polish, rotten berries. This bottle was terrible, unfortunately a drain pour.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - MAR 23, 2012
Bottle. Aroma has notes of sour fruits, raspberries, toasted malts, sweet red fruits. Dark and murky reddish brown hue with a small off-white head that mostly diminished and left no lace. Flavor is very sweet and medium/heavy sour. Palate is medium to full bodied with average carbonation and an astringent finish. Overall a nice sour with a great raspberry overlay. Good balance and nose. Too bad it looks like shit but it does taste lovely.

JoeTheYounger (1169) - Lake Arrowhead, California, USA - MAY 17, 2010
Bottle purchased at Lost Abbey. Poured a reddish dark color with pinkish foamy head. Aroma was fresh raspberries and sweet sugars like a raspberry filled doughnut. Taste was nice sharp sourness with tons of raspberries. Medium body. Surprisingly good.

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 8, 2010
Served @ Lost abbey dinner @ Monks Café, 2/23/10. There was some mention of this being "double Fruited” Pours deep, murky red with a bit of a brownish hue, topped with a fairly large pink head. Intense, fresh raspberry aroma. Tart raspberry hits the palate first, and the tartness builds following the initial sip. Definitely seems like fresh raspberry; I almost felt like I’d run into seeds. There’s some wood in the background, but this is all about raspberry. Finishes fairly tart. Full bodied. Delicious.

John25 (1138) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - AUG 7, 2014
Bottle. Dark amber with a thick white head. Aroma is raspberry with slight yeasty funk. The taste adds more rich raspberry flavor and lactic yeast notes. Rich with medium carb. Overall incredible.

SinH4 (1132) - Garching, Bavaria, GERMANY - JUL 4, 2015
Vintage 2015, on tap at the brewery. Hazy brown-amber-reddish color with hardly any head. Aroma is sweet raspberries with slight funk. Taste is sweet raspberries, great fruit tartness, a full body, and some serious sour finish. Carbonation is medium. Awesome, despite the higher sweetness compared to what I?m used from Belgium?s top Framboises.
