Impressive. Dark red, decent head retention and lacing. Super tart, with a lot of raspberries. Manages to be really fruity and really funky. Lots of fruit in the nose and front of the palate. Finishes very sour and dry. Really fun to drink, and delicious.

Bottle from Pangaea last year. Poured with muy head in my glass. Aroma was of pure, sour raspberries and light funk. Flavor was much more funk than raspberries, but still clearly there. Great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JBPortland (1095) - 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.

bottle thanks to bleeng. Shared at July Houston RB Tasting. Pours a cloudy, dark brown with an off-white head. Nose is of super-tart fruit. Taste is of raspberries. Mouthfeel is super mouth-puckering and sweet. Great!

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.

juiceisloose (1056) - Windermere, Florida, USA - FEB 11, 2012
375 ml bottle from the 1st batch, so with over a year of age on it. This one pours a beautiful cloudy, deep ruby red to plum color with some pinkish tint and topped by a thick, rocky head of light dusty tan colored foam showing great retention. Some pink colored floaties of yeast speckle the foam nicely. The foam slowly settles down to a thin film and leaves thick sheets of lace that cling hard to the glass. The aroma is really nice and bright showing a great balance between funk and fruit with fresh, juicy raspberry tartness and dry, yeasty, oak barrel notes. There are hints of cherries and blackberries to go with the fresh raspberries and dry yeast. There is ample amount of citric acidity that ties everything together nicely. The flavor follows suit with ample amounts of citric acidity from the berries with plenty of sweetness from the juicy raspberries. The barrel imparts plnety of sharp, woody funk with the right amount of vanilla to smooth out the acidity. Medium bodied with lively carbonation that enhances the dryness and the crisp, refreshing tartness. The finish is lengthy with the tart, juicy raspberries as the star of the show. This is like a hybrid between a great fruit and a belgian lambic, and great tasting to boot. This is another winner from Lost Abbey, and one I need to get a lot more of. Awesome stuff.

Dirty brown with little head. Nice raspberry aroma. Flavor is terrible, all vingegar. Overly carbed and aggressive. Not my thing.
