UPDATED: JUL 18, 2010 Draft @ Johnny Browns. Pours a swampy reddish brown with a small bubbly head. Tons of semi tart raspberries, diacytal, dry oak and other berry fruits. Brew was both sweet and sour on the palate with tons of fruit and dry oak. Pretty damn tasty with a kick ass label.....

Pour is hazed and murky opaque-ish ruddy brown with hints of pink and a this off white/pinkish head...smell is strongly strongly strongly fruity with raspberry and pears...a strong note of sweetness is in there too (dare I say saccharin)...some strong notes of oak and general funk...the saccharin thing is off-putting and I hope I donít taste it...wow...taste is strongly tart and tastes like raspberry...very interesting because is is certainly a wood flavor followed by a fruit flavor, which Iím not sure if that was the intention...certainly gets my pucker and pursing of the lips going though...very interesting as the sour fades to a dull roar and a cereal and grainy sweetness comes in...Iím not a fanboy nor am I a hater of these beers, but this just seems a tad too cereal sweet...Iím glad that the saccharin thing didnít seem to pan out though...

Massive gusher! Chunky, reddish purple pour with white head. Massive tart raspberry and tannic qualities in the nose! Fresh raspberry, sour funk, oak for flavor. Big thanks to a friend from BA for this one!! Giant sour finish.

On tap at Sour Fest in Seattle. Pours a light red color with a tiny bubble of head. The aroma is sweet fruity with vinegar. Initially more sweet than overwhelmingly sour, wood and brown malts, fruity, but a distinct sourness throughout. Tart and fruity, a very wet mouthfeel.

tap at brouwers during sourfest. pours a deep red with a small pink tattered head. aroma of medicinal raspberries.light eathy funkiness. boat load of fruit up in this. also some wood and light cocoa dough that mixes in with the raspberries. moderate sourness. pretty good beer, but didnít blow me away. like mixing a cantillon with a rodenbock grand cru and adding a boat load of slightly stale raspberries. great beer, but faced some stiff competition at sour fest.

[Bottle] Pours a murky reddish brown with a large beige head. This wasnít a gusher at all, not even close. The cork popped pretty loudly but not too much other than that. This beer is extremely one sided - pure raspberry and acid, but it does both of them well. Extremely fruity with lots of raspberry seed and yogurty funkiness and acidity. I really had to swirl the beer for a while before it was actually drinkable due to the huge carbonation. Very tart and sour which is just enhanced by the raspberry character. Just so damn drinkable and delicious. I just canít get over the ridiculous raspberry character.

12.7 oz bottle courtesy of mreusch. Pour is a light gusher, murky ruby and orange with a an off white and red head that falls quick. Aroma is soft raspberry, tart and sweet; with some bright light acidic vinegar sourness. Taste is tart and sour raspberries up front, followed close behind by sweetness, sugar and vanilla. The finish has more citrus, almost lemon peel. Interesting, well blended. Palate is medium, spritzy carbonation, and a nice tart finish. Thanks for sharing this one Matt.

C&C 375 mL bottle courtesy of Bankhead. Thanks! Pours a slightly murky raspberry color with a medium tan head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of nice, fresh raspberries with a bit of a musty funky note. The taste is raspberry jam, sweet but with a tart mildly earthy note. Medium bodied. Tasty beer.

Had on tap at Stone Sour Fest 2010. Pours a reddish-brown with good off-white / pink head. Aroma is strong raspberry as would be expected with a bit of yeastiness and some sour acidity. Taste is wonderfully smooth. Lots of raspberries, sugar, very sweet and at the same time tart. Sweetness lingers through the finish. A very nice brew.
