Pailhead (6355) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JAN 17, 2016
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate berries (I’m getting more cherry than rapsberry) with some light oak, barely a hint of lemon, and alcohol. It pours a murky brownish-orange with a small pink head that settles to a very thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. The flavor starts with moderate-heavy raspberry that builds in tartness towards the finish and mixes with moderate lemon, light oak, and alcohol. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation.

Dacrza (800) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - DEC 24, 2015
DATE TASTED: December 24, 2015... GLASSWARE: Duvel snifter...OCCASION: Christmas Eve celebration done...time for a worthwhile ending to the night ...APPEARANCE: dark brown, almost iced tea in appearance, like muddied water... head swiftly descends to a thin white ring of bubbles... AROMA: powerful fragrance of flowers and funky yeasts... the Bretts paint a woody, oak-laden impression--big, bold and demanding...the second flavor is raspberry and puckering sourness...PALATE: vibrant, active at the teeth and bubbly throughout the mouth; a long, lingering, dry finish--a full-bodied sour that drinks with relative ease and without the hint of its alcoholic weight... TASTE: thick raspberry, a dessert in itself--the oaken casks create a woody, lightly spiced, slightly toasted back end that compliments the fruitiness; apple, berry, and malty...the sourness is intense and dominant...OVERALL: bigger and more demanding than the usual sours encountered during the year... a wonderful gift from Jeff that isn’t wasted on me...this is where Weyerbacher belongs, in a big beer with room to work.... intensely fruity and tart, with enough candied allure to bring upon the next sip....strong and sippable...
