Draft @ Brouwer’s Sour Fest; deep, dark red with thin tan head along the edges; creamy raspberry syrupy with a very faint sourness and mild prickly texture; light fizzy mouthfeel of cherry pie, raspberries and a touch of chocolate; quite nice and all about the cherries here; mild dry oak in the finish but mostly covered up by the strong fizzy raspberries; pretty nice overall but not nearly as complex and refined as ones like Red Poppy and Cuvee de Tomme

A: Pours a ruddy amber with an above average off white head. No retention or lace. noted. S: Aromas of very tart raspberries, sort of earthy like the pits have been ground into this one. Light yeast but not much else. T: Very very bold raspberry. More tart than sour, but there is a bit of sweetness as well. Hints of red wine, and very very mild oak. One dimensional all raspberry, but very good. M: Medium in body, smooth, nice zippy carbonation.

Bottle from HH22. Thanks tim! Nice pour, light colored roses, pinkish... good head.. Aroma is sour raspberries. Taste this beer is mouth puckering sour... Very enjoyable though. As it warmed up it became a little sweeter but didnt lose its sourness. Light raspberry flavor. Medium body and carbonation. Overall: Good sour brew

harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 5, 2013
Vintage 2012. Picked it up at the brewery. Signed by Dominguez! Pours a rather murky chocolate cherry with a brown pink fuzz on top. Lots of tart raspberries, some must, barn, lemon and oak. Nice hint of vanilla as well. Flavor is oaky with plenty of fruit flavor and slight bitterness. Also has the aftertaste of a really rich raspberry truffle. Some bits of wood and vine. I like the flavor on this one quite a bit. Medium bodied with sharp, tight fleeting carb and a wet finish. Nice beer, probably one of the better I’ve had from the Abbey. Serving type: bottle 10-12-2012

beernbourbon (1547) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - APR 9, 2010
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.

Rusty (1545) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAY 1, 2010
Opened very cold to avoid potential gushing. (and it worked) Pours a deep hazed purpleish brown with a effervescent light pinkish tan head with lots of tiny carbonation bubbles crowding their way to the top. 10 minutes after opening the head is larger than it was upon the initial pour, but rather nice. Aroma is fantastic, raspberries, raspberry seeds, vinegar, sour lemons, oak, funky yeasts. Flavor is sour raspberry puree, vinegar, oak, lemons, funk, highly acidic with a puckering sour and woody mouth bittering finish. A tongue number and palate pleaser for sure. Great Sour.

elihapa (1545) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - MAY 9, 2010
On tap, brewery. Nose is mild, touch acidic fruit with a hint of metal. Flavor punches with tart cherry, pink lemonade, cranberry and sweet fruit punch. Woody notes complement nicely. Great intense flavors, reminds me of a more tart version of NG’s raspberry tart. Finish moves effortlessly into hightened acetic and lactic acid. Long tart fruit finish. Very satisfying, the depth of fruit-tinged flavor through the middle is amazing.

italarican (1543) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - JUN 29, 2011
On tap at Monk’s. Pours a full maroon, headless. Aroma is rich of pureed raspberries with simple syrup. Flavor has really nice raspberry and green apple tartness (predominantly raspberry. Sharp, prickly mouthfeel with a sweet and tart raspberry finish. Delicious and a true tribute to raspberry, as both the sweet and tart qualities stand out.
