Pink head, fast gone over beautiful clear red-cyclamen beer. Raspberry². explosion of fresh fruit and vinous, winecasks. This nose is absolutely stunning! Sour raspberries - wild ones, at that, full of fresh flavours and natural acids. Hint at vanillapods (real one, not like from oak). Spritzy, enliveling the superb natural flavours; yet some slickness. This is insanely good. Another winner, Vinnie. Some super-natural, faintly alcoholized Hero-drink... Abject thanks to the donator!

Bottled (Thanks veliempojot). Reddish colour, small white head. Aroma is raspberries, some mild alcohol, quite sweet and mild toffee. Flavour is raspberries, rather tart wood and has a very dry palate to it. Sweet and tart, but not very sour. Stil lextremely dry. Beautiful.

375ml bottle from a trade with Hugonaut13, thanks!

2012 vintage - Pours dark red with a foamy white head. Aroma of tart raspberries, wood, hints of yeast and vinous notes. Taste is tart, sourish and sweet with notes of raspberries, wood, oak, vanilla, vinous notes and yeast. Finish is sour and tart with some raspberries and wood. Another excellent sour ale from Russian River. Well balanced and tasty.

lusikka (6027) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 29, 2013
375 ml bottle.
Pours a beautiful ruby colour with a pinkish foamy head. Aroma of strong pungent raspberries and some wood. Flavour of intense tart raspberries, oak, white wine, balsamic vinegar and green apples. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and high carbonation. Finishes tart on raspberries with dry wood and some interesting apple notes. Mouthdrying as well. Rather light bodied and pretty strongly flavoured on the raspberries.

37,5 cl bottle vintage 2012 (6,50%) @ home. Thanks tiong!
Aroma has lots of raspberries and quite nothing else. Flavour is rather sour and tart with lots of raspberries, juicy notes, some lactic acid and earthy notes. Nice sourness here.

Pours hazy red color with a small head, a big pop upon opening the bottle. Aroma of very dry raspberries, grassy notes, faint yeast and wood. Flavor of sour raspberries, goose berries, grass and yeast. Nice sour palate with a dry finish. Very nice.

Bottle. My 100th Sour/Wild Ale rating!. Pours pinkish red with a thin white head. Acidic, funky and tart, with lightly sweet cherries, and earthy and woody notes. ABSURD! Awesome stuff.

2012. Kraftig hallondoft. Mycket syrlig. Riktigt tung hallonsuring. Oerhört rena hallonsmaker. Fantastisk

Bottle generously shared by Matt at Max’s tasting. Had been hoping for a while to get to try this one, so thanks Matt! Pours a beautiful raspberry amber color with a thin white head. Aroma of tart raspberry seeds, raspberry puree, oak and some light barnyard funkiness. Terrific. Taste is tart and slightly acidic with notes of raspberry jam, seeds, lemons, oak and wood and a great overall funkiness. Soft on the palate and a nice lingering tartness in the finish. Just lovely.
