A superb framboise. Deep red beer with slick mouthfeel and a nicely tart flavor. Raspberry sweet, but not too sweet. A star of the show at Omahas Extreme Beerfest with Jess and the parents in 2017.

zoucrew102 (1756) - - OCT 30, 2016
500ml bottle. Tart raspberry aroma with notes of yeast funk, red wine and oak. Pours ruby-amber colored with a thin but retentive off white head that also has excellent lacing. Starts with tart raspberry flavors with a little bit of funk from the yeast. Finishes quite tart and dry but smooth with nice red wine tannins as well as a bit of oak. Another nice sour from Destihl.

jredmond (8102) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 15, 2016
Sampled at GABF 2016 with Paul and Larry. Pours a deep red body with thin lace. Mouthfeel is very tart but the acetic character dominates all other flavors.

Clownoisseur (453) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - OCT 10, 2016
GABF 2016. Appears hazy amber/rose with a small head and light lace. Aromas of raspberry and oak. Hints of pepper, wheat bread. Taste has an intense sour note upfront with a load of raspberry tartness to compliment. Some pepper spice couples with the yeast/funk to provide a bloody mary-like note in the mid-palate. Full mouthfeel lets the fruit linger in the finish. Solid American sour!

Nero55 (932) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Draft. Light peach with no head. Strong aroma of tartness with some berry fruit notes. Light body with intense tartness upfront and throughout, some sweetness and yeast funk, and a hint of raspberry. The tartness is a bit over the top but otherwise good.

Sampled at GABF. Pours a hazy orange with some white head. Big, sour nose, brown sugar, berries, grass, vinegar. Vinegary flavor, apple, raspbery, grass, vitamin C tablets. Full bodied, acetic finish. A little too vinegary.

daknole (11036) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 22, 2012
GABF. Cloudy red pour. Aroma of sour raspberry jam, a little bit of lemon and a light cheesy, lactic funk. Sour raspberries, lactic sourness, fruity as hell, lots of wonderful things being made by this brewery!

GABF 2012. Tried this baby a few times over two nights. Pours a hazy reddish appearance with an off white head. Big raspberry, a bit seedy, vanilla, like oaky, vinous nose. Super tart, raspberry, red vinous, funky, quite sour flavor. Very nice stuff.
