Brought by Max at Dad's Tasting on Chinese New Year. Lovely sweet raspberry aroma, rich deep ruby red color with whitish pink head. Taste is more tart than sweet and more seeds than fruit with a touch of earthiness and funk,which is a nice compliment to the fruit.

Red colour, minor head. Aroma is raspberries, toffee and some yeasty notes. Flavour is reaspberries, some tart wood, mild dry sourness with some ripe fruits as well. Nice long raspberry aftertaste. Hides the ABV well.
[9145-20170420] 375mL bottle. Richly raspberry wood juice aroma. Dark red black body with a medium-lasting creamy off-white head. Super sour raspberry wood flavour. Medium body is sour but feels like it has mellowed in wood barrels for a couple years. Very nicely balanced with aged sour tart fruits, delicious. (10/4/10/5/16) 4.5

On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2016. A nice little red one, not much head on the top - perhaps a faint little sidesticking pink film. Smells like you’d expect lots of fresh sour raspberries, some cherry. Wood for sure and a little bit of raspberry comopot. Really nice. Tastes really good. Soda sour and really sorrel infused. It has a good oily mouthfeel and it’s almost average on the carbonation. Rush of raspberries, it’s really on the sour side this. Green stalches and some sweet strawberries in the end. Lingering acidic. Sweet! 14.05.2016 neongolden (1716) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 1, 2017
(On tap @ CBC 2016 Red Session, Copenhagen) Pours deep brownish red with an off-white head. Aroma is jammy raspberry and a mix of other darker fruits like plum, blackberry, fairly sweet dark caramel, zippy lactic lemony notes underneath, wet wood, musty funk, a bit of basement. Flavour is a bit more tart than the jammy nose suggests, lots of raspberry, lemon zest, some of the jammy darker fruit still present though, relatively sweet, malty, oak, hint of funk. Finish is fairly dry, lightly tart, bitterness from raspberries and oak tannin, lingering jam. Light to medium bodied, light carbonation. Another nice dark sour from Crooked Stave, not super hefty but well balanced.

375ml bottle @ home. Pours a dark mostly opaque reddish purple with a small pinkish head. Nose is a nice light amount of raspberry jam. Flavour is tart, semi acidic, tasty sour raspberry jam. After drinking it a bit more I think the acidity might be a touch high, but otherwise this is a great example of raspberry sour. BlazerT (1198) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - APR 29, 2017
Nice deep brown with tiny, light brown head. Aroma is mostly raspberries along with mild sourness. Also citrus, funky, fruity, tart and acetic. Some peachy notes in the background. Watery to oily texture, soft carbonation, finish is long and tart. Good and interesting brew. A little bit extraordinary. jercraigs (10651) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 23, 2017
2017-04-20. Lightly hazy dark brown body modest creamy beige head. 3++ Aroma has big fruity Raspberry character with a familiar sweet raspberry seed/cordial undertone. Moderate funk. Flavour is bracingly sour and acidic on first sip, but pleasantly so. Raspberry comes across as more tart than in the aroma because of the acidity. Mild dark malt base is similarly dominated by the acidity but adds depth. Smooth average bodied palate, soft carbonation. Intense but lovely, not sure I want a huge glass of it though. 8+/4/8-9/3/17 Bottled at Birreria Volo, Toronto.
