Draught at Sour Fest. Murky redish brown with thin redish head. Aroma of raspberries and funk sweetness. Taste is wild sour raspberry that makes mouth salivate. Palate is very carbonated and light bodied. I like how the raspberries do not make it too sweet.

Boulder Sourfest ’10 - along with the Veritas 007, this was probably one of the more palate-crushing at the fest - strong acidity and full carbonation really make this tough on the tongue - kind of briny and earthy up front, followed by tart, whole raspberry flavor (skin, seeds, etc.) - moderate funk toward the back, as the acidity quiets down a bit - I like it, but only in small doses.

Draft, City Beer Store. This beer is a darkish pink with no head and looks thick, like a cross between Pepto and the dregs of a fruit beer. The aroma is pretty great. There’s huge Raspberry note backed by a clean lactic sourness. It’s fresh and natural smelling, no artificial fruit here. It reminds me of making raspberry jam. The flavor is almost harshly tart and lactic sour, which I enjoy but probably isn’t for everyone. The mouthfeel seems thick but I could be imagining that. The beer is fairly palette wrecking, pleasingly so at first but it wore on me. The lactic tart raspberry was strong enough to make me almost lose the flavor by the end of my small glass. Very interesting and rather delicious beer, particularly in small doses.

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2011 Re-reviewed on 12/10. A-pours hazy dark ruby red with notes of pink edges, tan colored head that is thin and bubbly fizzling away quickly leaving no lace. S-the nose offers notes of dry oak and a touch of vanilla up front, there is a light leathery brett note as rather sour earthy raspberries come in behind. the aromas work nicely together and are very in your face. T-the acidity is overpowering in this one. the oak is up front and dry, some sweet vanilla behind. slightly sour raspberries come in behind as the high acidity really bulls you over and slightly burns the back of your throat. M-good full body with lots of carbonation and a prickly feel towards the back. syrupy and coats the mouth and fairly dry in the finish. D-the nose offers a fair bit of balance and maybe a touch of funk. the flavors are great but the acidity is so strong detracts from those. still very ripe fruits give it the best attempt at balancing it out. ********************************** A-po hazy dark ruby red with notes of pink edges, tan colored head that is thin and bubbly fizzling away quickly leaving no lace. S-very light oak notes with a ton of raspberry. just a hint of funk in the back with some light acidity. T-huge sweet raspberry up front, huge sourness in the back. lots of acidity and tartness with just a hint of the oak towards the back. M-good full body with lots of carbonation and a prickly feel towards the back. syrupy and coats the mouth. D-this has a huge sourness and tons of raspberry flavors. the balance between the sweetness and the sourness is quite nice, both are huge.

Bottle, enormous gusher. Lost about half the bottle. Nose is wrought with that really distinctive Lost Abbey wild yeast. Round, soft, mildly dry, and raspberry seeds. Dark crimson to maroon, thick and opaque. I thought it was initially almost pie-like on the first sip. Tons of raspberry flavors swirling about, ranging from a dry lambic to seeds in raspberry jam. Chewy. Not overly sour or dry as a whole, which is a nice change of pace from some of the harder framboise. A nice expression but rather singular and not particularly complex.

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

Pure, ripe raspberry fruit aroma. The flavor, though, is quite dry and bracingly tart.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 2, 2010
375ml bottle, enjoyed during the JCB family reunion in SF. Rock on! Faintly cloudy reddish-brown pour, with a thin scrim of bubbles. Lovely nose, combining extremely fresh berry with a tart, faintly oaky bruin aroma that almost cups the fresh fruit. Moderate carbonation and a hint of slickness as it lingers on the tongue, before a medium dry finish that has just the right touch of acidity. In some ways, I want more of the oud bruin to come through; that’ll likely happen with age. Nice stuff.
