krumbum (521) - truckee, California, USA - AUG 30, 2013
Light cloudy peach red color. Smells like raspberry flowers. Acidic raspberries blend into tart red wine. The flavor fades almost to nothing giving time to reflect on all the flavors it just dealt with.

bartlebier (1651) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - MAY 27, 2013
Bottle pour@4th Festival der Bierkulturen Köln 25/05/2013. More of a special season brew than a "saison" by any stretch, this beer has an almost geuze-like wild sour nose, more due to infused raspberry juice/wine? and red wine barrel lagering than wild fermentation per se. Juicy acidity is milder in the taste and well managed by both high-ish abv and astringent palate. Surprising additional bitter aftertaste. Gf’s fave, one of the standout expert brews at the festival in all.

Idiosynkrasie (3752) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 27, 2013
Sample from 750ml bottle at Festival der Bierkulturen. Cloudy pink colour with small, fading, pinkish white head. Sourish aroma with the full range of raspberry flavours. Taste is slightly sourish with raspberry in large amounts and formidable intensity, dry finish. Nice one.
