GABF, 2012. I would call this a raspberry lambic. It was one of the highlights of the festival and drew long lines. There is an intense raspberry aroma to this beer. Sour flavor, but also lots of yeast and more fruit, finishing with raspberry and sour yeast. Bright red color.

2012. Olfactory raspberry explosion! Beautiful appearance, stubborn head atop the pink-red body. Really tasty shows the fresh fruit swagger. Young, yet still refined. This should age with the best of them.

Bottle shared by drabmuh. Thanks Matt. Save the tatas! 2011 vintage The beer is a dark ruby hue, unsurprisingly resembling raspberry juice. The head is pinky and foamy, rapidly receding to zilch. The aroma brings some distinctive Russian River yeast with a bold serving of raspberries. Great flavor, with lots of fresh, slightly tart berries. Pretty straightforward. Not overly funky, sour, or tart, hut rather refreshing, chuggable, and delicious. Light on the palate with spritzy carbonation. Overall, I really enjoyed this. An excellent beer.

From notes, sours tasting Feb 2012 at Samy’s. Pours a cloudy red with a slight foamy head. Aromas of raspberries, extremely tart flavour, with slightly sweet notes.

reggiedunlop (3217) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Pours a somewhat clear rose color with a medium foamy pink head that dissipates quickly. Aroma has tart raspberries, a hint at sweetness, and some vinous funk. Flavor is soury first...tart almost lemon/funky...raspberry creeps in with some vinous notes. Mouthfeel is light and silky with a dry tart raspberry finish.

375ml of the second batch, temptation base. Bright red, almost fuschia color, pink head that disappeared quick. Looks like a Kriek. The smell was funky, sort of fecal like manure, a hint of fruit. Flavor was sour, acidic, sharp fruit but not a distinct raspberry flavor. Overall, a good beer but not one of Russian River’s best. I’d like to have tried the beatification version so hopefully that make that again. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 09-14-2012 19:57:07

On draft for GABF 2012. Pours a beautiful deep pinkish color with a white-pink head. Nose is raspberries, berry flesh, some funk, and a nice sweetness. Flavor is similar with some mild tartness behind big raspberries, hints of earthy funk, and sweet berries. Beautiful color and beautiful tasting framboise.

Bottle 375ml. corked.

[ Courtesy of henrikb ]. Clear medium red colour with a small to average, frothy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white - pink head. Aroma is moderate to light heavy raspberry, tart, moderate horse blanket, barnyard, wood. Flavour is moderate sweet and acidic with a long duration, tart, dry, raspberries. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20121103]

vibrant pink color, little head. Fantastic aroma, fairly balanced between fruit and sour. Not nearly as sour as some describe, fruit aroma is much stronger than the flavor. seems like the base beer is muted a bit with the addition of the fruit.

2012 bottle shared this afternoon, thanks! Pours a rad boob pink with thin white head. Aroma is temptation, brett, raspberry and light hay and ripe cheese. Taste is super balanced with the fruit being front and center, dry, crisp, slight sour notes but just done so well. Overall, one of my favorite RR beers to date, glad I have some more to hoard for myself. Hope this gets made year after year so I can trade an arm and a leg to norcal trading newbs who want Blabear for it.
