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.

From notes. Poured from a 375 mL bottle into a tulip. Framboise de Amorosa pours a cloudy, murky brown color with a raspberry red tint and copper edges. Dark malts are lost in a funky, raspberry aroma. Barnyard funk and some leather wrap around a tart, vinegar raspberry and an acidic lemon aroma. A sweet raspberry flavor starts the flavor out, slowly bringing in a sweet caramel malt flavor. Next the flavor turns bluntly sour, with the sweetness of the raspberries cut in by a sharp lemon sourness. The raspberry flavor remains, growing tart and acidic, with just a bit of vinegar. The body is on the lighter side of medium, with medium carbonation. Lost Abbey can make some impressive sours, and this beer is right in my wheelhouse.

Thanks Kevin for sharing this! A- Body is a dark pink/fuchsia hue. Pours with a Foamy 1/2 finger pink head. Body is translucent. S- Lots of raspberry upfront. Also vinegar, acidic tartness, oak, and vanilla-although the highlight is pure raspberry. T- Sharp, unripened raspberries the whole way through. Slightly sweet upfront though very tart, there is also faint hints of oak, woodiness, and vinegar. The tartness gets really big for the finish. P- High tingly carbonation and meduim weight body. O- This is a really good raspberry wild overall. More sour in the back and more sweet upfront. Another great, well put together brew by the Lost Abbey Serving type: bottle

375ml bottle. Pours a dirty reddish brown with a moderate pink-white fizzy head that lingers. Aroma is lovely - tart and fresh fruits, some dusty funk, pureed fresh and overripe raspberries, and oak. Flavor is gushing with raspberry goodness, more tart and funk, and oak. Nicely balanced between the excellent raspberries, dusty funk and oak notes. Great stuff!

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.

Bottle. Pours a solid dark cherry red - completely opaque, with a thick bubbly dirty pink head. aroma of soured raspberries, funk, tart, vinegar, yeast.. Flavour is mainly vinegary - but in a drinkable way, raspberries take a back seat in this beer. Sour, most certainly, but not intensely so. Yeast is detectable in the finish. Exceedingly dry, not as fruity as I was expecting/hoping. Not a sour expert but feel this beer falls victim of hype.

Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - SEP 23, 2011
12.7 oz. brown bottle. An unclear reddish brown with a fizzly head. the aroma is partially sweet but intensely sour with a good amount of berries. Like a field of fresh rasberries. The taste is mouth puckering sour with some sweet coming from the rasberries. The berry sweetness seems to add a nice character to the intense sourness. this cured my sour fix for the weekend. The carbonation is high with a fizzy mouthfeel. I really hope this makes it into some distribution because this is great. One of the most sour beers out there.

From the 3-4 oz sampling still available after itís top popped and spewed all over my bathroom, ALL OVER, I must say I am pissed I didnít listen to the warnings about this gushing problem because this beer is top notch. An amazing sour quality to it tagged by a fantastic raspberry sweetness. Excited to see how the other 5 manage over some time, but what a pleasant start.
