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.

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.

Pink in color, very little aroma, just some acidity. My notes say ’sour as fuck’, so I’m guessing the beer lacks ballance.

Amazing pink color with almost no head, dry and tart with the most natural raspberry flavor i’ve ever experienced in a beer. Not overly sour but you’d know this was RR if you didn’t see the bottle! #500 on Untappd

nimbleprop (4200) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 29, 2012
Sampled at GABF. Pours a clear, bright purple with some thin pink head. Big raspberry nose, fruity, musty, earthy, jammy. Flavor is sweet, earthy, berry jam, bitter greens, lemon, raspberry. Full bodied, tart, lightly acidic finish. Good, but lacks the complexity of some of their other sours.

2012. Very nice one here. Dray, tart, and such good raspberry. I feel like throwing raspberry into Temptation couldn’t have produced something poor.

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2012 Sample at GABF 10/13/2012, thanks to Bluemeow76 for assistance with note-taking. Bright ruby color with a medium pinkish-white head and spotty lace. Aroma of citrus and raspberries. Medium body with a tart berry character and notes of malt and oak. The finish is slightly funky with a raspberry aftertaste. Solid all around.

Bottle @ home during my #5,000 tick fest, courtesy of a friendly trader. Pours a fairly clear, reddish violet appearance with a fading off white head. Sweaty sock, very rich raspberry, vanilla, lightly woody, spicy seedy nose. Super tangy, rich, seedy berry, rich raspbeery, somewhat burningly sour, pineapple, sweet berry flavor. Some vanilla, some vanilla but a lot of acidic sourness going on. Overall, super nice brew. Quite good but it wasn’t as good as Temptation + Raspberries as I expected. Glad to open it for #5,000.
