Delicious fruit sour, just the right amount of raspberry flavor and a great tarttness to it. Super balanced, nice sour finish, excellent.

Draft at Toronado. Pours a deep red-plum hue with light whisps of pink head. Nose is big raspberry and tart lactic tones. Flavor is definitely raspberry smoothie with a nice backbone of lactic tart sourness, light fruits and hints of wood fill out the sweet thick finish. Full body and modest carbonation. A solid fruit beer with sourness to compliment without dominating.

UPDATED: APR 24, 2010 This is re rated after tasting this beer from the bottle and draft at the release. Wow what a beer. Murky reddish color. Sweet tart aromas. Medium in body. Fantastic sweet raspberry flavor very nicely balanced with sour characteristics. Good length of finish. Could drink this all night. Love it .

JBPortland (749) - 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.

On tap at Taps in Petaluma. Pours a bright red color without much head. Very sour that lasts the whole taste with a good flavor of raspberries.

375ml thanks to FlacoAlto. Pours a murky kinda ugly red with a nice pink head that leaves a long lasting foam for the duration. Nice lacing too. Nose is lactic and creamy with subtle raspberry and wood. Flavor is quite bracingly sour up front before settling into a super dry milky middle and a semi sweet raspberry finish. Despite the puckering acidity up front the middle and finish of this beer makes it very drinkable. As it warmed more wood and malt body appeared. Very very good sour.

2012 bottle. Thanks Shane! A: Ruby with a thin, light brown head. Good lacing. Wish there was better head rentention, but some good bubbles floating in this one without it exploding on me. N: Raspberry and oak for miles. Touch of acetone. Sweet red wine grape. Some leather and tobacco. T: Sour hour - very puckering. Some residual sweetness. Tons of fruit and some pepper spice. M: Light with a hint of alcohol. Goes down about as well as you’d expect for such a sour bomb. O : Reminds me of Hommage, albeit not as intense with the fruit. One touch nose, but I love raspberry sour, so this gets a good mark from me.
