podey (637) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 16, 2013
375ml bottle. Pours deep ruby red with thin pinkish head. Aroma is overwhelmingly raspberries, even from a few feet away. Smells like standing in a field of raspberry bushes. Lovely smell to this beer. Taste is tart raspberries, oak, tannin and citrus. Slight sweet elements but a terrific tartness and a well balanced finish. Really enjoying this beer....

TheAlum (5909) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAR 16, 2013
375 ml bottle from Binnys Marcey (Chicago, IL). Pours a rich deep reddish hue, reddish pink glow, good haziness throughout. A touch darker in the middle. Rich raspberry hues. Frothy whitish pink head atop laces small, rings a bit. Aromas are good tannic seedy raspberries. Fruity, juicy, good sour pump into this one. Some gentle oak, lemons, lactic acid. A nice bite, bigger sour raspberries and lactic acid. Mellow bretty funk, oaky tannins, some good sourness and a touch of acidity, mellow vinegar, and fruit girth. Funky, oak, gentle sweetness. Nice berries. Initial is nice big puckering sourness, big raspberry. Seedy, pulpy, and fruity. Sour twang hits firmly as we move in. Lactic, sour raspberry, sour lemony sourness, lactic elements are firm and coat the palate. Yogurt, straw, good cobwebs, mellow oak grows. Middle is sour, berry ridden. Never gets sweet or any sort of medicinal feel, the fruit really integrates well here, drives the experience. Seedy, firm to strong sourness as we move into the backend. Big lactic elements, straw and bretty elements as we finish up. Big tangy sourness kinda stays with this. Juicy, sour, good richer flavors. Lighter body but quite drinkable for me. Really well put together. Much better than Kriek, on par with the Cranberry and Redcurrant deyholla shared. A touch more body and substance than Cranberry. Really damn nice fruit lambic.

Tmoney99 (11075) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 13, 2013
Bottle. Poured clear reddish brown color with an average frothy tan head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate complex tart sour aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium sour tart flavor with a medium sour finish of moderate duration. Sour refreshing brew.

FlacoAlto (3810) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 10, 2013
A steady pour into my New Belgium globe glass produces a two finger thick, pink tinged head, that leaves a touch of lacing on the sides of my glass. The beer smells strongly of raspberries, seed, skins, pulp and all. This is backed by a tartness that is light behind the raspberry sourness and there is perhaps a touch of mustiness here as well, and perhaps a touch of straw like grain character.

Quite dry, definitely quite tart (almost puckeringly so), the raspberry flavors are quite apparent, though not quite as prominent as they are in the nose. The finish has a hay like, and even cracker like grain / malt character to it, and there is also a certain bitterness / astringency here (raspberry seeds and oak perhaps). Fairly light bodied, definitely quite quaffable, but there is a certain viscosity here that is made up of raspberries and lactic acid slickness.

The raspberry character is very rich and dense, somehow jam-like despite the lightness and dryness of the beer. This beer is certainly not the most complex beer in the world; it is mostly raspberry, with just enough other things going on to not seem overly one-dimensional. Actually fairly enjoyable

tommann (2857) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2013
1900th rate! 375ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark pink with a thin head. Aroma is sour and cheesy, with some tart raspberry seeds underneath. Taste has tart raspberry to start with a sour, cheesy finish.

JStax (3237) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Poured from a 375 ml bottle. Pours a murky purple with very little, lightly pink head. Aroma is funky tartness with a raspberry persuasion. The fruit is very vibrant. Taste is dry, tart, fruity raspberry with a definitive bitterness in the finish along with the dry tartness. Dryness is a little more than what I like in my fruit lambics. Aside from that, its pretty good.

Gription79 (2311) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Poured from a 375 ml bottle, thanks to the Boise crew. Notes of raspberry, dusty, citrus, slight grain. The finish was a bit bitter.

maneliquor (3263) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 26, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours ruby pink with a small light pink head leaving ok lacing and quickly disappearing. Nose is of sweet and tarty fruits. Hints of strawberry, raspberry and peach. Light horse blanket. Taste shows major tart and funk throughout. Lots of sweet red and berry like fruits - strawberry, raspberry, currants. Heavy pucker. Fruits become heavier as it warms. Solid stuff ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

illidurit (2172) - Petaluma, California, USA - FEB 18, 2013
Bottle shared at the Santa Cruz tasting in January. Everything about this beer screams raspberry, from the color to the aroma to the taste. Impressively vivid on the nose, somewhat more muted in flavor with lactic and acetic sourness creeping in. A pretty nice sour.
