yngwie (14008) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 30, 2014
Bottle, 75cl corked. It pours an almost clear one, reddish dark amber to light brown in color and with a minimal sized head. The aroma is quite berryish, with some lemon notes. Lacking big time on complexity, but thereís some funky notes. Itís quite dry and tart, with a nice co2 level. Medium body. Berries, some oak and lemon and a funky touch in the flavor, lasting for a good while. A decent one, but rather boring. 140830

Bottle @ fonefan tasting. Small head with short duration. Color is ruby. Aroma and taste are rich black raspberries, fruits, brett, lactose acid, malt and has a strong acidic finish. Semi plaque remover.

TheEpeeist (3398) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 4, 2014
25.4 oz bottle. Clearish purple brown with a few bubbles. Nose is raspberry jam, lemon pith and toffee. Tart, crisp and juicy with a perfect sour bite. Taste is black raspberry, earth and lemon. The fruit is the star. Lovely layers of sweet and tart.

Sarlacc83 (938) - Oregon, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Bottle thanks to Todd! Beer of the night for me. A: Pure red nearing purple. Very little head. N: Raspberries, cherries, grapefruit, lemons, oak, cabernet sauvignon grapes, leather, tobacco, and more of that sweet delicious black raspberry. T: Sour, fruity, slightly sweet. M: Carbed, crisp, dry and biting. Lighter body. O: I love big raspberry beers. Compares favorable to Hommage and LP Framboise, in my opinion. Itís incredibly powerful and delicious, and if I ever came across a bottle again, I would drink it up so fast. Highly, highly recommended.

750 thanks to Todd. Pours a cloudy purple color with a small white head. A big fruity nose. Sweet, yeasty, a bit of oak, clear berries, a bit of sourness. The overall flavor is an awesome bouquet of fresh raspberries and oak. Tannins. Lovely.

Dark red pour with spotty white head. Lots of funky raspberries in the aroma, some grass maybe a little white wine. Taste is sharp acidity, raspberries again, some oak. Raspberries and funk took over the wine barrel, but it added some complexity. I thought it was well executed for an american lambic, it wasnít so far away from the Rosť de Gambrinus we had earlier. It has definitly more power than any of the Uplandís.

jredmond (5610) - Manhattan, New York, USA - APR 2, 2014
Backlog 2013. Bottle courtesy of Mike at Franks with vinny, Alan, Barry and Bill. Pours a deep, deep red wine body with no head. Aroma is perfect - sour raspberry, cherries and blackberries. Mouthfeel is super tart - notes of sour cherries, black berries and raspberries, wonderfully balanced acidity, faint oak and funk.

illidurit (2172) - Petaluma, California, USA - MAR 31, 2014
Bottle shared courtesy Dustin. Thanks! Pours a deep murky purple shade. Aroma is flush with blackberries and raspberries, and a firm currant tone as well. This is... very sour. A little like what I imagine unripe berry juice would taste like. Heavy citric acid along with lactic notes. This is not for the uninitiated.

jbeatty (1098) - New York, USA - MAR 1, 2014
Bottle, huge thanks to Nick. Tasted 01/31/2014. Pours dark earthy purple, framboise-like, small hazy head with fine wisps, miniscule ring of lacing. Aroma is juicy raspberry, slight seediness, noticeable tartness with nice lactic notes, vanilla, woody finish. Taste is tart, concentrated raspberry, slightly viscous, jammy, lactic sour notes. Light medium body. Lovely, well done.

Oh yeah! A - pours hazy black cherry/berry. No real head. S - this is a nice fruited sour. Black cherries, raspberry, pomegranate/blueberry. Md raspberry jamPretty rounded sour aromas. Acetic/light basaltic vinegar. Nice lambic tones. M - nice tartness up front. Spritzy. Lightly sweet palate. Dry end. T - mmmm. This is very acetic tart. Fresh just unripe fresh blackberries, black cherries, raspberries. Nice and jammy too Very light vinegar and nice strong lemony sourness. Interesting almost desserty berrie pie notes. O - after all the hype I was nervous to try worried about being unworthy and all that. It is so good. A great combo of fresh and just unripe berries and lemony sour. Really good and really really sour. 4.3
