3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured into a lindemans flute and a ommegang almost tulip glass.
S: Smell is boozy and sweet. Raspberry hits and seems to be augmented with the alcohol. Much more sweet in the lindemans glass for sure.
A: Pours sort of a blood orange color. Little head retention.
T: The sweetness of the raspberry combines with the alcohol to kick you in the face but with a smooth finish. A bit of oakiness comes through.
P: Lingering on the palate itís just oak and alcohol. Itís way intense.
Overall this isnít the best sour iíve had. Has some interesting flavor notes but itís just too intense where the raspberry flavors get a bit overshadowed.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
A- Cloudy red with a small white head.
S- smells of raspberry along with slight souring.
T- Acidic raspberry up front that mellows into a slight sourness on the tongue.
M- a pleasantly thin feel with good carbonation bubbles
O- the reddish pink hue gives it a very inviting appeal. Definately a beer worth aging can only get better with time.

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2013 2012. Raspberry reddish amber. Flavor is typical framboise, tart but sweet, this one has a heavy malt character. Like a lindemans on steroids.Would have enjoyed more sourness but this is good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Sour raspberry, alcohol aroma. Deep red body with no head. Flavor begins with raspberry followed by quick dominating sour notes. Hints of funky yeast and oak. Lingering sour aftertaste, alcohol is hidden well but still provides a warming power.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at DLD 2013. It poured a reddish color with an off-white head. The aroma was moderate to heavy sour tart fruit and wood. It had a medium to full body with a dry smooth texture and soft carbonation. The taste was medium to heavy sour and sweet with a medium to heavy sweet and sour finish of moderate to long duration. Awesome.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slight reddish hue, but otherwise very dark in the glass with an inviting haziness and head. Aromas definitely of raspberry, strawberry and flowers. Not as perfumey on the palate, but rich and bready and yeasty, like a raspberry jam sandwich. Very rustic-tasting. This could be an old-world wild ale. Iím not one for fruit beers, but I like this very much.

Pours hazy reddish amber after a nice pop of the cork. Aroma is pleasantly funky with a bit of raspberry. Flavor is tart raspberry with the emphasis on tart. This is really good especially if you love raspberry as much as I do.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with some reddish notes to it and almost no head. Nose has a lot of sour to it with some of the raspberry notes coming through. Taste is also quite sour and made me pucker - definite "bite" to it. Feels very fizzy.

Aromatics are solid and full of sour notes, a nice musty wine note hangs around when the beer is cold (it mellows slightly when the beer warms up). Taste is complex and has all the typical Brett tastes. There is a nice raspberry taste that comes through the more the beer warms up. Overall a really solid brew!
