neongolden (1820) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 2, 2017
(Tap sample @ CBC 2016 Green Session, Copenhagen) Pours deep dark pink to red coloured, with a medium pink head. Aroma leads with a big punch of raspberries as expected, fresh raspberry but also raspberry pie and candy, a bit woody, really fruit forward. Flavour is tart raspberry, berry seeds, light strawberry, wood, lactic lemon, rather sour overall, crisply acidic, no real sweetness from the darker malt so it has a shorter finish than might be expected of style. Light to medium bodied, maybe a little watery, soft carbonation. Doesn't feel like a sour red with the fruit addition, just a pure fruit sour, but a tasty one. SNL (829) - - JUL 24, 2017

Cette bière s’adresse aux sincères amateurs de framboises. En suis-je un? Je l’ignore. Chose certaine est que je suis heureux d’avoir partagé cette petite bouteille de 375ml. Robe rouge pourpre, non filtrée, et profonde. Arômes de confiture de framboises, de pépins de framboises, de plant de framboises et de pulpe. Il y a tant de fruit dans cette bière que le funk en est réduit presque à néant. Même scénario en bouche. Je peine à percevoir autre chose que ce fruit dominant qui semble avoir été réduit en purée directement dans mon verre. Heureusement, le liquide est peu sucré, voire sec. Un fond presque aigre dans l’oesophage mais encore là, je suspecte l’acidité du fruit plus que l’acidité de bactéries lactiques. davidezdonz (586) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - MAY 15, 2017
A 375ml bottle, bottled in December 2015. Poured into a Cantillon ballon glass. It was a dark burgundy ruby red colour with a just over one finger off pink with a dark orange hued head that dissipated fairly quickly to a thin cap with some nice lacing. There was some very nice sweet and tart raspberry jammy aromas with perhaps a hint of oak. Tastes sour and tart raspberries and lemon to begin, followed by some light sweet jammy raspberries and a hint of oak. It finishes sour again with lemon, some citric acidity and a touch of grapes. Medium bodied with moderate to light carbonation and a dry-ish finish. Overall the aromas were stunning and while the taste didn’t quite match up to the aroma, it was still very good.
Palme (4823) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 2, 2017
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2016. This is a a warm cloudy almost purple red one with a small sidesticking pinkish head. Smells of raspberries, cherries, some wood. Really good and light acidic. Well sour in the taste also! It’s oily in the mouth and above average on the carbonation. A lovely tasting raspberry bomb this. Delish! 14.05.2016 jercraigs (10858) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 23, 2017

Idiosynkrasie (7946) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 2, 2017
375ml bottle. Burgundy colour with average, frothy, moderately lasting, minimally lacing, pinkish head. Fruity aroma is slighty raspberry dominated, additional notes of dark and red berries in general, hints of blue grapes. Taste is extremely sour, fruity, notes of red and dark berries, blue grapes, slight raspberry predominance. Too sour, pyrosis evocative. jmgreenuk (9964) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - APR 1, 2017
Bottle shared with the KL tastinfg group. Poured a hazy reddish brown with a bubbly off white head. The aroma is rich sweet jammy raspberry fruit.

Murky dark red color with pinkish head. Aroma has some balsamic vinegar notes and intense fruit character. Taste starts quite sour up-front, really fruity, quite acidic, really dry on the finish. Light body, dry, medium carbonation. Really sour and fruity ale.
