375ml shared by Madbeerbaron. Thanks! Pronounced raspberry aroma, earthy, fresh. pronounced raspberry flavor and on top of all that some nice sour tones. One of the better American Sours I’ve ever had. The raspberry is so pure and rich, and combined with the deep lemony sour tastes, is really sublime and delicious. Over the top awesome beer. World Class.

Vintage 2012 This thing pours pink, pink, pink. A nice light frothy pink on the surface. Smells of raspberries, lemon, lactic, grass and some more raspberries and their pithy, vegetal character. This beer is very, very razzy. Plenty of raspberry notes, some dry tartness, lacto tartness, some gain and peppery sharp notes. It’s tart, but has a hollow middle for me. Medium on thin bodied with moderate on hi carb and a semi dry finish. This one is good, clean and approachable. Serving type: bottle 10-12-2012

2012 vintage from Hoppypocket, thanks man! Pours a really bright red with a thin pink-ish head that leaves insane lacing. Aroma is of sour, fruity (raspberries...) and funky old cheese. Taste is tart but not too much with nice real fruit flavors. Not much sweetness and acetic acid level is low, only some lactic goodness. Body is light, carbonation moderate. Mighty quenching and quaffable. Awesome, really!

CapFlu (4370) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 16, 2013
(375ml bottle) 2012 version. Lasting frothy pink head atop a red, non-carbonated body. Nice sourness, somewhat vinegar and club soda. Cherries through the finish. Good and thirst quenching. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jlruthven (535) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 29, 2013
Sample at a bottle share. Deep pink, nearly red pour, pink head. Nose is just fleshy raspberry forever, with maybe a little vanilla from the oak creeping in. Taste is a little acetic up front (the Temptation base maybe?), but then it’s all about the raspberries again. Sparkling carbonation, a whiff of almond on the finish. Superb.

ICEatALAMO (873) - Troy, Michigan, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Bottle. The pour is a sweet raspberry color. The aroma is a fruit sour bomb. The taste is a smooth sour, better than most. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

czar (3812) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 20, 2013
bottle shared by tom10101, thanks! pours hazy light and beautiful pink without a head. raspberry (duh), fresh ones, perceptible citric on first whiff, bit of herbs, lactic, but again mostly citric, cranberry-like, some cheesy notes, faint yeastiness - in which aspect temptation shined, but it seems overshadowed here. low to flat carbonation, light body, medium acidity. very nice but not nearly as outstanding as temptation..

Minderbinder (1592) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 19, 2013
Bottle 375ml. Pours pink/dark salmon with no head. Aroma is of raspberries, fruits, cherries, stinging acidity. Taste is of sourness, acid, raspberries, fruits, some acetic. Palate: Light body. Overall: Very acid/sour; too much to be an outstanding beer. Still very good.
