3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
from erzbierschof.ch - cloudy reddish-brown in colour and with a persistent creamy head, nice lace; a solid aroma of wood and vanilla in the front and deep sourish raspberry notes below; very tasty and very carbonated, a robust sourness and a good malt body; the finish is quite dry with overwhelming woody and sourish notes, the raspberries staying again in the background; some warming alcohol notes - far too much wood presence here

Sampled at an esbls tasting. A big pink head and a raspberry funk aroma. Sourness is not huge in the flavor but some vinegar is tasted. Funkiness and raspberries. Yeast. Interesting.

Sampled from 375ml bottle. No gusher here (phew!). Poured a cloudy reddish color, light pink head. Aroma was raspberries, sour notes. It tastes about the same, very flavorful brew. A bit one-note, and I’ve had better and easier to get framboise locally.

Poured from a 375ml bottle, thanks to the Boise crew. Raspberry, sweet, slight bitterness. I would have liked a little more raspberry, felt like the balance was off.

Sour raspberry and garlic aroma. Cloudy auburn, thin head. Raspberry flavor, sour. Delicious, but somewhat simple.

Avery Sour Ale Fest. Very nice fruity, earthy, tart nose with the raspberries coming through nicely. The flavor is pretty smooth and nice until the end. A huge rush of rubbery unpleasantness comes through. Maybe my palate was already done at this point, but damn was that disappointing. Otherwise, pretty awesome.

Bottle shared with others. Poured a hazy deep red amber with an off-white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was full of very sour raspberries and slightly acetate giving an odd olive note. Flavor was similar with very sour raspberries that became a bit acetone.

Bottle. Lost most of it down the drain infortunately. Pours a murky slightly reddish brown. Aromas of sour cherries and perhaps a little wood. Flavours much the same. Good straight forward sour. Would have liked to get a little more.

Small bar on Fullerton. Nicely tart but slightly sweet beer. Raspberries come through later in the taste and a little like the liquid at the bottom of a sorbet dish. I mean that in a good way. Serving: Tap
