Boutip (4644) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 2, 2013
Bottle: Poured a hazy reddish color ale with a light pink color head with good retention and some minimal lacing. Aroma consists of fresh tart raspberries with some oak and light acidic notes. Taste is dominated by tart raspberries notes with some oak and light tart cherries with a light vinous finish. Body is about average with good carbonation. Loads of complexity in this beer while retaining a great level of drinkability with great refreshing notes.

Bomber Bottle. Wow this one was special. Whichever beer nerd cracked this, thank you! Notes of cherry, raspberry, earth, lychee, oak, tartness, funky brett, wood. Never had so much wood and tart fruit flavors coming though at the same time but it all works out beautifully. Light to medium in body and mouth. Medium carbonation. Top notch sour ale from America...Fuck yeah!

ericdevin (669) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - MAY 16, 2013
Draft from unknown, courtesy Joe. 2013 vintage. Pours a dark reddish brown, aroma is almost all raspberries, very little of the cherries or the barrels, lacto funk is there, though. Body is medium/lively, thought it might have been a little bit more tart, actually. Wood comes in huge, crashing through body and hitting roof of mouth. Might have wanted a little bit more liveliness but overall a really great beer. Upright does it again!

Sampled at DLD 2013. It poured a deep, reddish amber color with an off-white head. The aroma was raspberry tartness with a bit of blueberry and a slight underlying funk. The taste was a rich raspberry note that becomes tart with backing wine and light funk. Mighty tasty.

murky grapefruit, darker than four play but similar, larger spotty cream head. Nose is huge lime, lightly green with umami hints. Heavy citrus front, lime and kiwi, mildly acetic mid followed by bright fruit. Thin and sticky through the end.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a clear ruby color with a minimal to average frothy white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy sour fruit and yeast aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & tart flavor with a medium to heavy sour & tart finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer for style.

750ml bottle pours a hazy, caramel amber with some white head. Nose is a nice blend of cherries and vinegar, raspberry jam too. Flavor is sweet and tart, vinegar, cherries, red wine, fresh berry, strawberries. Full, bright, acidic finish.
