3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Terrific bottle, great cold, outstanding as warmed. A few years aged, with slightly edgy wild characteristics, raspberry but also a bit sour cherry taste. Pinkish with little head. Great drinkability. Major league.
A hazed pinkish amber ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, nice raspberry jam with light lactic notes, light Brett, Epsom salts, grapeskins, very nice. In mouth, a smooth mix of lactic acid, lemony notes and raspberry jam, well mixed together, ground cherries, sweet yet complex, well done. Bottle from brewery, bought 2 years ago.

330mL bottle, sent from wilco (thanks a lot, Mike), pours a clear reddish amber with a small beige head. Aroma brings out shitloads of raspberries, followed by various wild yeasts. Flavour is similar, bringing out much more wild yeast than the nose suggests, giving it lots of funk, along with potent raspberries. The funk slightly outdoes the berries, but this is very fruity. Carbonation is very lively, without detracting in any way. Great stuff. solidfunk (9407) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JAN 16, 2014
Nice balance between the elements here for a well-rounded sour. Aroma of raspberry, light bretta and some citrus. The pinot wine is subtle and well-placed here. Pours maroon with good head and lacing. Soft carbonation. Bottle from lcbo that I sat on for a few months. StefanSD (2468) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - JAN 13, 2014
12 oz bottle courtesy of trade with Sammy. Thanks. Bottle was a gusher. Pours a hazy amber-brown color with a small off-white head that soon recedes to a film. The aroma is overtly funky with sour raspberries, vinaigrette and red wine. The taste is dominated sour raspberries and raspberry seeds, and its nicely balanced and accented by a fruity wheat base. The palate is full and smooth. Finishes long and tart. Overall: Very tasty sour ale, oodles of big bold sour fruit flavors. Loved it. robinvboyer (4750) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 13, 2014
Bottle from the. Rewery. Swampy, amber pour with a redish hue, and a very quickly dissipating off white head. A very funky, sour aroma. Lots of raspberries, and raspberry juice. Some slight barnyard aromas, and random berries. Quite tart, slight woody flavor, with some decent acidic notes. The funk is very pleasant, and up front. This is a veryice sour ale. I need more.
