Bottle at CBC - Clerkenwell, London during Bruce’s 30th Birthday Party. Many thanks to Bruce! Pours cloudy gold with a fine, white cream cap. Big acetic fruit aroma. Medium sweet flavor with big tangy bite, some juicy berries, mellow dryness. Medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Pungent tartness to finish, more acetic zing, lemon, berries. Massively tart beer.

Bottle @ Bruce’s birthday tasting. Cheers, Bruce! The pour’s a hazy amber color with a small head. The aroma’s raspberry tart, sweet berry jam, some general acidic funkiness. The taste is more of the same. Robust sweet raspberry. Bucolic field. Fresh, summery flavors. Soft tartness, hints of brett. Light body, very drinkable. Fine carbonation. Overall,a really impressive beer. Top work.

Bottle shared at tasting at my house. Pours amber brown with tan/off white head. Nose and taste of tart raspberry, funky wood, wild yeast, light cherry vinegar tartness, light caramel and aged oak. Medium body. Well balanced tartness - not overpowering. Raspberry shines through a bit more than the cherry.

Bottle (750 ml). Shared by David P., thanks! Hazy ugly orange/copper, with beautiful and intense lacing though. Aroma of cherries, apple, spices, acetic notes, brown sugar and flemish red reminiscences. Taste is moderately sweet with cherries and other red fruits notes. Not as acetic as the aroma. Body is light. There’s a very good balance between fruits/sweetness/sourness. Interesting Sour!
