Bruce’s Birthday Bash at the Craft Clerkenwell. Thanks to Bruce again! The Eric Cantona looky likey threw me for a bit! Very hazy amber beer. Small suddy cream coloured head. Light and slightly dry. Mild sourness, fresh raspberry. A little lemon. Zingy. Mild seltzer minerals. Semi dry finish. Not bad.

Travlr (11810) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 14, 2013
Bottle courtesy of mostly me, with help from GT2, thanks! Cloudy ruby amber color, bright white edge head. Nice aroma of softly sour plums, grapefruit, mango. Taste is softly sour berries, Asian and tropical fruit. Fantastic.

bhensonb (11046) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 20, 2012
Capped 750 from Marcus. Pours copper with a slight, perhaps lightly pinkish, transient head. Aroma is raspberry. Move over Framboise de Amorosa. Med + body. It’s quite sour, and the sour cherry dominates. Raspberry is a complementary flavor. Finshes marvelously sour, astringent, and very arguably oaky. Yum.

Leighton (10958) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2013
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.

brokensail (10914) - Orange County, California, USA - NOV 17, 2011
Cloudy pinkish red color with pink-white head. Very fruit forward on the nose. Seems like a combination of cherries and raspberries. Lots of funky straw and earth notes, quite a bit of lemon, too. The fruit flavor is similarly intense on the palate, maybe a bit sweeter, though. Still a fair amount of lemon.

Tmoney99 (10660) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 27, 2013
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.

Barrel aged fruit beer, bottle#13 of 119. From hannont, thanks!! Purple red color. Raspberry, strawberry oak and red fruit in the aroma. Sour flavor but very fruity with new oak, strawberry jam, raspberry and other red fruit. Very pleasant, complex and highly drinkable. World class!!
