Call me a homer for this beer, but I could taste it in my mouth the day after I had it on tap at the release. Iíve since had it from the bottle, and it was exactly as I remembered. Acidic yet balanced with a perfect tart raspberry sweetness. Dark, but not so thick that you canít enjoy a full pour of it. So - this is not blushing monk or framboise de amorosa. Itís also not framboise for a cure, which frankly in my mind lacked the funk or the complexity that this brew has. It stings, then it soothes, then it finishes clean. I have a few more of these and they are not for trade. Personal white whale right here. Markowski knocked it out the park on this bad boy.

Aroma has a nice, light citrus character with a moderate yogurt character. Light funkiness with moderately strong raspberry character and fairly jammy. Pours a cloudy blood red with faint brown notes. Small, pink head with decent retention on the edges. Flavor is nice with moderately strong, jammy raspberry notes. Some medium light yogurt and citrus notes. Very jammy and fruity. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a pretty nice beer with a lot of jammy fruit with light yogurt and citrus. Could use more funkiness, though I found the acidity nice and delicate.

I like this, but not as much as hommage. A bit too much lemon. They are all just really sour and I donít like sour. Stop making me drink these beers.

yngwie (13924) - 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
