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

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.

Purple reddish in color... Aroma of sweet berries, sour tartness... Flavor is sour raspberries, tartness is more intense than their other beers like supplication... Pretty nice

Tap @ Russian River. I really screwed up this year. I was there the day BEFORE, and the day AFTER bottles were available. At least I got to try it. Pours hazy red with a small pink head and some lacing. Aroma is raspberry dominated, with light tart notes and a bit of yeast. Flavor is also raspberry, sweet tarts, lemon, a bit of funk, and light wood notes. Body is medium, carbonation is low.

Candy red, clear, little foam. Smells like raspberry flowers. Initial sour bite, raspberry flavor, cheesiness in the end.
