3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 mL bottle shared with ebone1988. The pour is rusty reddish brown color with a nice white head and no lace seeming to settle on the glass. The aroma is very jammy. Lots of raspberry. There is a good tart sourness on the back end, but it's a lot of raspberry and sourness. Not a whole lot to be impressed about here. The flavor is pretty reserved. There is a good sour up front, and it moves through a nice raspberry sweetness. The booze is non-existent, which at 11.4% is miraculous. The mouth feel is a little thin and slick. Carbonation isn't really great and it falls off the tongue quickly. The fruity aftertaste is nice, but the booze warms on the back end. Could be a lot better.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared with koleminer20. Aroma is sour, fruity, raspberries. Appearance is rust, opaque, light light light red head. Taste is very sour, some raspberry, booze is definitely hidden, quite tart though. Mouthfeel was a touch light, but otherwise good carbonation and the booze did not make an impact.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
2014.2 This was my first experience with this style. And maybe my last. Way to tart, sour, and acidic. Maybe this is a good representation of the style, maybe not. Either way it’s not for me.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy red copper with small pinkish head. The aroma is brett, oak, raspberries. Thin mouth with tart raspberry, light oak, funk and brett. Puckering sour finish, really enjoyed this one.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at the "New Beers Eve - Last Chance 2014 Beers!" tasting on 12/31/2014. Pours a cloudy ruby-amber color with a medium pinkish-white head that dissipates steadily to a film. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of berries, brett and oak. Full-bodied with flavors of tart raspberries, brett yeast and oak. The finish is moderately sour with a berry and oak aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Delightfully sour with a hint of raspberry jam. Smells of raspberry with a hint of funk. A mellow beer that flows well from front to back. A little bit of unwanted "rocket fuel" in the finish. A very good beer!

2014 large format bottle. Bordering into way too sour. Almost upland like. Very acidic.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle
Approaching this aged bottle with a bit of trepidition I came away with the experience I expected. Flashes of brilliance often preceded sharp astringent periods. If you’ve got an older bottle then do not sit on it as this beer certainly does not improve with time.
Aroma / Appearance - A thin head quickly collapses into the caramel body that looks like a glass full of melted Twix soaked in carbonated water. Sharp vinegar masks apple cider and raspberry pulp. Oaky aspects try to balance out the other aromas but do not quite get there.
Flavor / Palate - Raspberry jam and apple cider warm the throat before seconds later a blast of intense sourness hammers the tongue. Abrasive vinegar makes it hard to drink more than a little at a time. Unlike La Folie or other intensely sour beers it does not balance itself with any bright fruitiness. It is unlikely that I’ll be grabbing too many more Weyerbacher beers in the future once I finally break the 100 ratings barrier for Pennsylvania because of experiences like this.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle with cork - 2014. Pours hazy and light red. Aroma is raspberry mixed with light Brett. Taste is dry, sharp, berry and very slight Brett. As Brett goes, this has very nice character without the overly funkyness that sometimes you’ll see in a Lambic, but the Brett is there. A very balanced beer, this goes down very quickly. No detectable VA in this one. You get the oak on the nose when it warms up. Alcohol is well hidden. A beautiful beer and worth seeking out.
