3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

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.

This one poured a bright pink to red color with a pink head. Reminded me of a JW berliner. Aroma was straight raspberry flesh and light seed notes. Not much showing that there will be much acidity here. Flavor was correct, mildly sour, but more like a raspberry fruit beer than a sour. Still pretty good at that.

375 ml bottle shared with the group. Pours a hazy reddish/orange/purple color with a small, but immediately disappearing pink head. The aroma is tart raspberries, lactic acid, touches of vinegar and funk. The flavor is more tart to sour berries, lactic acid, funk, a mild vinegar notes. Prickly carbonation, but very drinkable for being a sour.
