3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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

Draft at iron abbey. Pours hazy amber with minimal head. The aroma has raspberry but not as pungent as expected. The taste has an aggressive tart raspberry. Absolutely killer flavor and length.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
On tap @ What’s Brewing 15. 2015 vintage. Pours dark orange, with a small creamy head. Aroma is acetic, with tart berries and fruit peel, with raspberries, rhubarb and musty bretty wood. Full body, with soft to none carbonation. Flavour is acetic, with musty berry notes of raspberries and rhubarb, funky bretty wood and horseblanket, as well as some nice oaky notes. Dry musty earth in the finish. Tremendously balanced and drinkable. Brilliant! A close to perfect combo of funky farmyard, earthy notes and wooden brett, as well as delicious musty fruitiness. Could very well prove itself as a perfect 5 on a rerate, if it turns out to be even remotely as nice again (and again and...).

All In Beerfest 2015: Aroma is full of raspeberries and lemon juice. A grassy or maybe more hay-like aura appears when it warms up a bit. Taste is pleasantly sour with them raspberries doing their job, lemon jucies and slight bitterness helps this one over the goal line.

Tap at Mikkeller Tokyo. Nice fruitiness, maybe lacking a bit of sourness though, raspberry and maybe feels quite cherry like. Coats the teeth but I don’t get the musty or dusty bits. Nice enough though.
