2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle @ Matt’s house from our Reserve Society membership. Pours a hazy yellow orange appearance with a white head. Coconut, vanilla, light corn, a touch of stomach acid, lemon aroma that honestly smells a bit fucked up. Tangy vanilla, lemon, chewy bland malty, light corn, light white grape flavor. This batch is pretty messed up.

One of the best sour beers I've had. The raspberries are delicious! Unicorn beer (collab with Bruery & Bottleworks)

Had new batch twice in two weeks
First bottle: delicious., raspberry and brett smell with a raspberry jam flavor. Great depth of fruit flavor which balanced out the acidic tartness. Good funk
Bottle two: light raspberry and more lemony citrus. Tasted much younger than first bottle. Light vinegar
Ill be aging the rest

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2013 Bottle. Aroma of fruity, berry sweetness and a very acidic tone (which stings the nostrils thanks in part to the heavy carbonation). Pours a slightly hazy yellow squash color with a bubbly white head. Very tart taste of raspberries, extremely dry ginger ale, woody oak, and a touch of citrus. Light body with quite possibly the driest, most abrupt finish of any Berliner weisse or wit I’ve had. OK, but it is way different than I expected. Rating No. 300.

Imperial witbier, such a goofy style, this one is soured and barrel aged and it helps it a bit.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2015 750ml bottle, thanks to caterwaul for sharing. 2013 version. Awesome lemony citrus aroma in the nose. Hazy slightly darker golden color. Couple big chunks of yeast in there. Little white head, couple dots of lace. Color is actually very pretty. Bigger body. Lighter, kind of soft, crisp bright carbonation, great texture. Lightly sticky in the finish. Moderate to bigger sour taste, very light spice. Just a bit of funk, more nice lemon citrus featured in the aroma. Very tasty stuff, very enjoyable, and still pretty refreshing, like a berliner should be. You don’t really notice much of the added alcohol, just a slightly bigger body. Very tasty , enjoyable, easy drinking stuff. Love it more and more as go. 8/4/8/4/16
New rate, during RBWG15: I had swore I had seen this before, but I couldn’t find my review for it in the moment, and the person sharing insisted that this was brand new, so I rated it again... Hazy golden orange color. Little off-white head. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft, crisp, lighter carbonation. Dry finish. Great oak, citrus, lemon, mild belgian. Moderate to bigger sour taste. Light sweet. Great sour. 8/4/8/4/17 [original scores kept unchanged] [likely the 2011 vintage, according to Ferris’s notes]
