On tap at GTMW - Pours rosy amber with a ring of white head. Nose is raspberry--real fruit and seeds, with a touch of caramel. Mmm...a fruit bomb! Taste is mineral raspberry, light malt--real clean. Vinegar tart on the finish, with Smarties sweetness. Light and effervescent in the mouth. Brigadier (3725) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - AUG 24, 2012

Circling around immediately to the Destihl tent I could not believe the line was so short. This sour was almost as excellent as the previous one though at this level I am just splitting hairs. Either are world class sours worth the drive to Bloomington, IL, to check out in person.
Aroma / Appearance - A sem-transparent reddish brown base was cloudy and murky. Raspberries fresh from the vine were almost as bright as a glass of 3F Hommage. This one holds nothing back.
Flavor / Palate - Raspberry jam on white toast hits the throat with raw power. Dry and vinegary it is almost too much to handle. Drunk in large quantities it might get abrasive but four to five ounces was the perfect amount. I definitely need to make the drive to their brewpub some time soon.
Enjoyed at GTMW 2012. Pours a raspberry amber with a medium white head. Tastes of tart berries with a fruity, yet slightly metallic finish. Some buttery aftertaste but overall a good beer. MrChopin (4304) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 22, 2011
FoBAB 9. Hazy rose-amber body with a white, large-bubbled ring. Nose is acetic raspberry, reminds of Framboise d’Amorosa without the malt balance, thinner, light yogurty lactic promises to save. Seedy raspberry starts up the flavor, pleasant until the acetic character begins building, bright at first but burning by the finish, sticky and oily as usual with the enamel coating qualities I detest. Fruit almost worked here, acid unfortunately taking over already. BMan1113VR (7930) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 21, 2011
3.5yr version on tap at GABF. Pours with a hazed copper to golden hued body with a minimal white head. Aromas are of vanillin, wood, oak, tart, cherries, musty funky and very acidic with only a mild acetic bite. Flavors are super acidic, bright cherries, wood, dry and acidic. Lovely!

On tap (FoBAB 2011) : The aroma consists of big tart raspberries, sour lemon, and a touch of acetone. It’s a transparent abmer with a touch of haze and a small off-white ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of tart raspberries before quickly being overtaken by mouthpuckering sour lemon and a touch of acetone. It’s light bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, this reminds me of a slightly more mild version of the good bottles of the Hanssens Experimental Raspberry that I’ve had. chibuck (3513) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 13, 2011
draft... the only Detihl sour that I thought was truly good and gave me hope that Forsaken was not a fluke... this is really sour but I like it way, lactic acidic and really nice tart raspberries... try this one drdisque (877) - Illinois, USA - NOV 12, 2011
FOBAB 2011. Extremely sour. However, there’s enough fruit flavors going on here to keep it interesting and palatable. Actually one of the better sours I had at FOBAB even though my rating doesn’t really show it. bu11zeye (13140) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 27, 2011
(Draught) Pours a light hazy golden pink body with a small white head. Aroma of raspberries, barnyard, and caramel. Flavor of raspberries, vinous, caramel, light balsamic, and some citrus with a moderately dry wood finish. arminjewell (9720) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - OCT 9, 2011
On tap at GABF says aged for 4 years, pour was almost milky reddish pink with white head, aroma brought nice notes of raspberry, grapes, lots of funk and lemony lactic notes. Taste is very, very sour, lots of big lemony lactic notes but with a nice sweet and tart raspberry note, nice funky fruit skins and dusty barnyard, some cheesy notes, finishing tart and lemony, more raspberries in there as well. Really nice stuff.
