Sampled at the St. Louis RB gathering. It poured a hazy peach color with a small white head. The aroma was very fruity. The flavor was light lemon, a touch of raspberries and it finished light on the aftertaste.

Sampled at the st. Louis ratebeer gathering. This pours amazingly cloudy. A nice soapy white head. A sour nose with complex fruot. Sourness hits first but fruit shows up then. Spice, too. Yeast is interesting and adds a unique complexity. This is good.

sample @ REM b4, really excited once I knew this was opened, yet not surprised, there was alot of power that day. Pours a hazy off golden hue, nice head. Aromas are light raspberry, some funk and tart. Fantastic balanced palate, the tartness comes through in the finish but the fruit not as developed as i thought. None the less this should age amazing, I wish it were more available.

Bottle. Hazy yellow pour with a nice white head. Aroma is an off smell of wheat and light, subtle tart. I can barely pick up on the raspberries in the aroma. Taste is tangy and tart lemon and bitter raspberry. Tight flavor profile. Refreshing and enjoyable sour. Would like to see this bottled on the regular.

Beer sampled at our Halloween whale tasting....thanks Baron! A murky peach color and about a fingers worth of spritzy white head. Kind of odd color for a beer that incorporates raspberries. This smells pretty awful honestly. Unripe raspberry and what smells like garbage, there is also some light earthiness. Tastes better than it smells, but it is still lackluster. Raspberry, some lemon, not very sour. Good carbonation with a medium body. What a letdown, why is this beer so hyped again?

(750ml bottle) cloudy, fine white and soapy head. Nose of lemon, spices, wheat, white wine barrel, brett, and quite funky. Taste of lemon, very tart, wheat, delicious, light spices, excellent mouth-watering linger. Brett is left lingering on the palate. Awesome sour.

750 ml bottle thanks to 5000 from a Hard Liver Fest trade. Pours a cloudy orange color with a large white head. The aroma is a rich sour funkiness with light berries and distinct oaky vinous notes. The flavor is a tart woody beast with some light berries which are also tart, lots of lively carbonation, oranges, light and yet very robust. Certainly a complex beer and very nice.

Have always liked the bottleworks anniversary beers, and this fit right in with that .. .light tartness, hay, and light raspberries .. . fantastic stuff, subtle yet refined and worthy of an anniversay beer in any world .. . don’t get any ideas mister bond ..
