3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
75cl bottle shared by YGTBSM. Mostly pink color with a hint of orange and a small head. Bright raspberry, with tart acidity, light funk, and a bit of cranberry in the aroma. Light berry sweetness balanced by a light tartness. Not as sour as the blueberry, and richer in the finish. Lightly carbonated but enough to move it over the palate. Mild, but pretty tasty stuff.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared via psprings @ the Hellbilly Hellraiser 3.0 Tasting...THANKS PAUL!!! Ruby red grapefruit in color without a head to speak of. Aroma is of sour, unripened fruit. Again, can’t really distinguish that this is raspberry...but tasty. Lemon zest, vinegar, and funk. Not thick and viscous, not thin and watery. Right down the middle.

2008 bottle. Briliant amber color with a slight white head. Good aroma is barnyard lite, with tart fruit and wood. Prickly carbonation and mildly sour throughout. Lightly sweet raspberry flesh flavor with leather and moldy wood notes. This one should have been aged longer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Batch 1 shared by MrBendo! Thanks Todd!
Popped the cork and lots of foam- gusher like- nice fluffy foamy head on top of a murky hazy deep amber violet body. Aroma is nice tart raspberries, tons of lacto and brett horsey funk- cross between a farmhousey earthy funk and a lambic sour funk- moderate wood and oak as well. Flavor is a bit more oaky with a bit phenolic and vanilla - tons of fresh tart raspberries that give a nice sharp bite on the tongue- almost a bit prickly and tons of lactic lambic-like funk- sour finish. Awesome.
