Sampled at Backus’ Backyard Bash. Hazy brown with no head. Oaky and mildly sour nose, some berry. Just seemed weak overall. I have one cellaring - we’ll see what age does. Meh.

The perfect framboise. If you can call it that. Nearly double the power of the cheap stuff. Sour with a hint of berry. 11%? Get the fuck outta here. Delicious.

Pours orange/copper, with an off white head. Aroma is raspberries, oak, and is also a little sour/tart. Flavor is raspberries, alcohol, funk, oak, and earth. It is a little sour, but it ends more sweet. It’s better as it warms.

The bottle had tons of sediment at the bottom of the bottle so I was very careful opening the cork and pouring the glass hence not to much of a white head. The color of this brew is gorgeous, a crystal clear burgandy with light stream of bubbles rising up from the bottom of my challis. The first thing I smelled was raspberries, even before it made it to the glass. Some light funkiness is present in the aroma as well Flavors are what you would expect sour raspberries it reminds me of a Flanders in some way but a good lambic in others. As it warms you do get some barrel qualities from it. I was pleasantly surprised the flavors are quite complex in this brew. This brew is light and crisp in the mouth. A great brew I really appreciate this one Dim. Good drinkability and a fine wild ale from the east coat at that. I think one of Weyerbacher best.

UPDATED: MAY 16, 2009 Thanks to JohnnyKat for the bottle! Hazy amber pour fluffy white head that slowly settles to a fine film. Surprisingly no lace. Acidic oaky aroma. Sticky sweet mouth-feel. Tart up front. Sweet fruity finish. Raspberry syrup. Slightly dry finish. Much better beer at room temperature than cold

Bottle. Pours a hazy dark amber with a small white head. Aroma of raspberries, wood, straw and some funkiness. Flavor was tart with sour raspberries, oak/wood, earthy, musty and has a hint of brett. Alcohol was well masked with a medium body and a dry & tart finish. Decent sour ale

Bottle shared by Dickinsonbeer, thanks! Pours slightly hazy amber with a pinkish white film of head. The aroma has just a hint of brett, lemon rind, and lots of sweet raspberry preserves. The carbonation is a tad sticky, like many Weyerbacher offerings. Only a hint of sharpness is detectable in the flavor. A subtle leather note is detectable under all the sweet raspberry jam flavor. Some apparent alcohol comes through as well. The finish has some bitter fruit skin character. Not that bad, just very simple for the style without enough funk.

Thanks Hopscotch! I really didn’t enjoy this at all. It wasn’t really a fruit beer as much as it was a fruit syrup. It tasted like opening up a can of raspberries in heavy syrup. It was somewhat thick on the pallet and the wild notes didn’t really make it through all of the fruit.
