fkoolen (580) - 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 (352) - 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

beerguy101 (5338) - Newark, California, USA - DEC 25, 2014
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.

tectactoe (3118) - Michigan, USA - DEC 14, 2014
Bottle: Murky brown, creamy khaki & bubbly head on top. Aroma of raspberry pound cake & raspberry Tootsie Pops. Some caramel drizzle, both lightly sweet & lightly tart. Fruity. Hint of red wine grapes. Flavor is a little boozy & vinous with notes of wood, red grapes, sharp raspberry skin acidity that fades into a sweet grape & caramel finish. Hints of vanilla, cherry, & a touch of lactic acid. Boozy, warming wine finish.

freretoc (1129) - Besançon, FRANCE - DEC 7, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 37.5cl à la brasserie, couleur rouge/ambrée, mousse moyenne, peu d’effervescence, grosse attaque sur le côté alcoolisé de la bête,, continuité sur la framboise, ensuite gros mix sur l’acidité du vin blanc et la rondeur du vin rouge juste une pointe tannique en fin de bouche. Peut être un peu trop (mélange de fûts et framboise) ce qui casse l’équilibre.

Bue en bouteille de 37,5cl. Nez de framboise, grosse acidité en bouche, framboise, tonneau. Trop acide pour moi.

GothGargoyle (1689) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 4, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2014 Deep dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is a big hit of raspberries, followed by a little grape, prunes, figs and brown sugar. Full bodied, slightly sticky mouthfeel, lightly tart on the palate with a lightly warming fruity finish. Taste is raspberries, berry pie, prunes, figs, caramel, red wine, white grapes. Delicious
