czar (6010) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 20, 2015
pours cloudy light brown, red tint, with a small reviving light beige head, some particles, perhaps raspberry puréed chunks, minimal lacing. raspberries-plenty, other berries - borderline rotten, strong vinous character if not a tad overdone - lots of tannins; red grapes, olives - kalamatas; light sweetness - barley sugars; light citric/lactic acidity, very spicy too. average belgian carbonation - slightly foamy, medium body, very tannic and grassy-spicy finish. was anticipating a quad which seems far-fetched. anyhow, this is an interestingly unique boozy belgian strong ale with strong perfumey raspberry and winey flavors.

ABT_S54 (284) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2015
375cl bottle served in a snifter. Pours dark brown and very cloudy with hints of garnet and a short-lived off white head. Aroma is oaky red wine, sharp red fruits with a hint of dark chocolate. Aroma is perfectly balanced with sweetness from the chocolate, sharpness from the raspberries, earthy oakiness from the wine barrels and a typically nourishing Belgian ABT base. One of the best Mikkellers I have tried which is high praise indeed.

BrettTaylor (649) - Radford, Virginia, USA - APR 16, 2015
Poured from bottle into snifter. Pours a brown with some red notes, thick head with soft pink color, almost like melted raspberry ice cream. Aroma - lots of raspberry with some chocolate underneath. Taste - definitely some raspberry, but lots of funk and medium low tartness. Mouthfeel is almost gritty.

Bottle shared with BBGTC. Aroma is heavy raspberries, some bitter grassy notes and hints of wood and leather. Taste is very special. Notes of wood, red wine, raspberries, malts and leather. Medium body and co2 levels.

ClubGonzo (4817) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 25, 2015
Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Pours a dark brown murky body with a medium off-white head. Nose is raspberries, wood, brown sugar, dark berries, caramel, grains and hints of alcohol, licorice and deep malty notes. Taste is raspberries, wood, red wine, grape peel, dark berries, licorice and hints of caramel and alcohol in the back. Medium body, medium to high carbonation, dry finish. Not bad at all, the combo of raspberries in a sweet quad which has dried out from the barrel aging quite a bit.

fkoolen (638) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 19, 2015
37,5cl bottle at home. Transparent dark reddish brown colour, red wine like too, with a beige creamy head. Incredibly fruity raspberry nose along with caramel malty creaminess and cask originated vanilla. Taste is deep and complex with red wine fruitiness and warmth together with white wine dryness and astringency coming through the raspberries nicely, along with roasted, creamy soft and sweet malted tones reminiscent of a Belgian abbey quad. Lingering raspberry fruity finish, dry from the tannins of the wine. Medium body (minor letdown), medium carbonation and dry mouthfeel. Another great experimental brew by Mikkeller!

375ml shared by Jason, thanks! Pours cherry coke red brown with a beige head. Aroma is brown bread, acetic, raspberry. Flavor follows. Not so much acetic, but light brown bread, raspberry. A touch of mold, chocolate, then more raspberry in the finish. Moldy earth flavor keeps this from being really good.

Rammer (369) - Moscow, RUSSIA - JAN 7, 2015
Gorgeous raspberry flavor, the taste of a wine barrel. A lot of raspberry, sour, sweet, very fragrant and delicious! On the quad is not very similar, but great

Tasted at the Triple Rock Sour and Barrel Aged Fest on 2/10/2013. This quad pours a medium brown color. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is malty, sweet and raspberry. A medium bodied quad. The malts are fruity and sweet, brown sugar and raspberry. The hops are herbal and earthy. Decent carbonation. Nice balance. Kind of funky and tart, but there is some sweetness and nice raspberry flavors as well. This is a nice sipping beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.
