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

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 (1695) - 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.

tom10101 (2662) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 18, 2013
Bottle (375 ml). 2011 vintage. Thanks to Levi for this one! Bright dark salmon with no head and no lacing. Strong aroma of fresh raspberries (both sour + sweet) along with acidic and acetic notes and light malt presence. Taste is moderately sour with, again, a lot of fresh and sour raspberries. The acetic aspect is a little more (a tad too much) present along with light malt and wood. Light to medium body. Low carbonation. Moderately dry. Mouth puckering. Very good raspberry Sour! Intensely fruity (especially the aroma). A tad too acetic and could use a little more complexity, especially considering that the base beer (Temptation) is so complex.

Hair6a11 (1323) - Illinois, USA - AUG 8, 2013
2012 Vintage : Pour is raspberry in hue, with a fine bubbled pink head in this glass - it eventually rings the glass, with some light lacing present here ; the nose is soft - raspberry juice, grassy hops, and light barrel treatment here; the flavor profile is initial modest in nature ; more grass, raspberry juice, as well as raspberry seed- and it then moves to a stronger souring character with lemon tart and earthen oak - there is a lingering, prickly sourness as well as carbonation at the finale - Thanks Dakine!

thanks to matt for sharing this bottle. Pour is hazy pink, with a thin white head. Nose is fresh & tart, raspberry & barnyard funk. Earthy, gently souring fruit lactic acid with a fruity sweetness. Body is soft with light carbonation. Very mellow and lovely.

2012 bottle shared by madbeerbaron...thanks Ben! - Pours pink with a thin white head. Nose is yogurty raspberry, pretty pungent with a touch of tartness. Taste is pretty fleshy raspberry with tartness and yogurt. Finishes long and lightly tart, with more fruit and a touch of white wine. Soft and well-carbonated.

Bottle shared at Berliner Bash, poured a reddish color with aromas of raspberries, wet wood, and light musk. Flavors were tart raspberries followed by some earthy funk with a touch of wet wood. Pretty amazing beer, thanks to the person who shared this gem.
