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.

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.

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.
