THE Fruit Sour tasting. Thanks Jack for this rarity. Cloudy purple red beer, tiny pink head. Blackberry jam nose. Palate is crisp and dry. Sour white wine, blackberry. A little lemon. Dry finish. It’s fine - not too aggressive.

Thanks Beerlando! Purplish colour. Very fruity with balanced tartness. Subtle lactic complexity. Quite nice. It has a lot of flavour and some sweetness, but still carries a mellow lambic character as well.

(Draught) Pours a murky reddish brown body with a small pink head. Aroma of raspberry, yogurt, pie crust, vanilla, and vinous. Flavor of raspberry, lacto, pedio, and blackberry with a dry finish.

brokensail (10738) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 13, 2012
Deep red, almost purple, in color with a pinkish head. Heavy on the raspberry aroma and a nice blackberry character, too. Pleasant lactic acidity and tartness, a bit of red wine, and wood. Not too much in the way of funk. Excellent fruit flavor with the blackberry and rapsberry, a nice sourness to it, though not overly acidic. Fairly sweet from all the fruit, but a well done beer.

Leighton (10683) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2012
Bottle at The Fruit Sour Tasting, London - huge thanks to Jack for procuring this one. Pours rich ruby with a very fine, white film of a head. Lovely, fresh raspberry aroma. Light sweet flavor with clean and fresh raspberry, lots of dryness, and a well and sour character. Light bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Dry finish with plenty of tart raspberry, light salt, light acidity, a bit of lip-quiver. Great.

Bottle courtesy of GT2, thanks! Very dark purple color, no head worth mentioning. Aroma of intense fruit. Taste is more fruit, moderately tart finish. Nice.

hopscotch (9047) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Bottle… CCB’s Hunahpu’s Day 2012… Cloudy purple ale with a small, creamy, violet head. The bouquet presents fruity, acidic, black raspberries - and that’s pretty much all - and it’s more than enough. Delicious. Light-bodied and a touch astringent with lively carbonation. Very fruity and very tart with tons of black raspberry flavor, including plenty of tannins that provide fantastic balance. Finishes fruity, watery and quite dry. Bottle courtesy of Maltzilla!

GABF 2012. Multiple tastes at GABF. So glad to finally try this! Pours a hazy purple appearance with a small off white head. Super juicy, tart nose with tons of raspberries, vanilla, and light funk. Super tart raspberry, funky, juicy, light barnyard flavor. It’s a burner but very nice for Sourheads.
