zizzybalubba (1418) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - OCT 7, 2013
On tap at the GABF tapping party at Falling Rock, Denver, CO. Pours dark pink with no head. Aroma that is lightly sour with very faint raspberry. The flavor is sweet, especially for a beer that calls itself a sour. While there was no doubt some fruit used in making this beer I have a hard time considering this a sour. Just ok.

brokensail (10916) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 7, 2013
On tap @ Loveland. Hazed orange-pink pour. Raspberry, candy, and some lemon. Nice fruity aroma to it. Flavor is raspberry candy, sour lemon zest, and a light mustiness. Pretty simple, but enjoyable.

brokephibroke (291) - Mead, Colorado, USA - OCT 6, 2013
Pours a murky, woody deep reddish brown. Nose is dominated by raspberry with some lemon zest. Flavor is very balanced between malt, berries, bitter lemon and yeast. Not too sour, but a good fruit beer.
