Bottle pours clear reddish color with off white head. Aroma is sour vinegar, raspberries, horse blanket. Lively mouthfeel from the carbonation. Taste follows the nose. There is a robust raspberry taste that makes this a very good brew. There is some noticeable oxidation beginning to set in. It wasnt enough to detract from the deliciousness this beer has to offer. It was just noticeable. A great beer.

ajnepple (6139) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 13, 2017
2015 bottle pour at Hops & Pie, 3 oz. Deep reddish and light hazy appearance with a pinkish white head. Aroma of barnyard funk, toasted oak, raspberries, sour cherries, earth and light grains. Similar flavor, sweet, tart, fruity, funky, earthy and mildly sour. Light to medium body with a soft feel and a light dry, woody finish. A little sweeter and less tart than I anticipated, but still excellent.

Vintage 13 partage avec les potes.Belle robe bien opaque. Dans mon verre, de la confiture de fruits bien sucre, bien crmeuse. Les premires armes me sont difficiles. Il faut dire que la bouteille est froide. Une importante cerise noire, macre dans un sirop me monte au nez, ainsi que dtranges armes de plastique te de vernis. Cest trs intense. Jai besoin de temps, elle aussi Laissons-nous le temps de nous apprivoiser. En nous rchauffant et en ngociant de bonne foi, nous parvenons petit petit une entente. Le cerise sestompe tranquillement, le plastique a disparu (sans doute simplement dissout dans cette acidit peu discrte) et la framboise prend son envol. du ppin de framboise, bien plus que de la chair. Cest capiteux et trs tannique, sans tre vineux. Lamertume des ppins de fruits apporte une astringence cohrente avec le PH trs bas de cette bire agressive. Longue en bouche, trs ptillante, acide et sucre, une 750ml se partage parfaitement entre 5 palais robustes.

xhophead (19) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - MAR 3, 2017
Tasted at the Sybarite Pig, Boca Raton, Fl. I won it in a silent auction, cracked it tonight and shared it with the bar. Wow, I've recently been exploring sours (recovering hop-head). This is the best I've had so far. Amazing fruit, but well balanced, sour, but not pucker inducing. Love it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

davidezdonz (449) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - JAN 1, 2017
A 750ml corked and caged bottle, bottled on 30th June 2015, and best before 30th June 2025. Poured into a Cantillon ballon glass. It poured a hazy deep ruby red colour with a thin pinkish head that faded fairly quickly and left only sparse to no lacing. Aromas were of strong cherry tartness with jammy fruit sweetness and oak. There are hints of raspberries, lemon zest and light funk. Tastes sour, tart, cherry, raspberry, oak, lemon zest and vinegar with a touch of funkiness. Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall this was just great. Surprisingly the cherry was much more prominent than the raspberries and the funkiness was less than expected but, this was still extremely drinkable, tasty and enjoyable. On my must buy list.

FatPhil (15560) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 4, 2016
750ml bottle - Overpriced Beer Tasting 2016 - thanks martjoobolut!
Cherry stone aroma, a touch pissy, more cherry fruit, other red berries. Very sharp palate, not unexpectedly so. Sweetish cherry fruitiness in the taste, but a nice sourness. Pouring the crap in, its sweeter and fruitier. Finish is sharp. Definitely a classic lambic, a classic kriek, but lacking the wow factor.

suurjuust (3282) - ESTONIA - DEC 3, 2016
Overpriced beer tasting 2016. Rating #3000. 0.75l bottle, shared by Mart, thanks! Slightly hazy red beer, small off-white head. Nose is woody, tart, but fairly smooth, raspberry, red wine, some acidity. Flavor is tart, dry, palate on the lighter side, finish is fruity, raspberries, very dry, more wood. Pretty complex and balanced.
