5 oz flight from a tap takeover at Provisions market. Damn the nose on this one is intense, fruity, sweetish but tart enough to make the hair on the back of your neck stand up. Yiiikes in a good way. Taste is sour but not overly so, tart yet sweet raspberry. Wow this is a good one!! jake65 (3689) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - NOV 30, 2013
Bottle, shared at Thanksgiving dinner. Pours a reddish orange with a ring of light beige head. Tart and vinous nose, tannins, wine barrel. Void of any fruitiness at this point, but a little bit does come through in the flavor. Dry, but musty fruit. The tart and vinous elements overshadow anything more than a faint raspberry presence. For a $21 bottle I had hoped for more, but this is still a very nice beer. kambei70 (1070) - - NOV 29, 2013
You might think this is a Russian style girly beer (a little Nabokov for you), but instead it is a very sophisticated Raspberry Belgian Ale. Fermented with brettanomyces (the little guys who give us that tart zing) and fresh raspberries, this brew is bright yet deep with spices and edges of the fruits natural tart quality to give it a white wine kind of finish.

On tap at Frisco Tap House & Brewery in Columbia, MD.
Clear, dark-orange copper with a small head that disappeared quickly and left no lacing.
Aroma of raspberry, cherry, Brett sourness, caramel and a light red wine.
Taste completely consistent with the nose.
Medium/light body and low/medium carbonization.

Clear red copper with a fizzy off white head that quickly fades to nothing. A lot if visible carbonation in the glass. Dusty, funky aroma with a lot of sweet and tart berries. Taste has vinegar initially then into tart berry and then finishes with a wood and and funk. This changes a bit with each drink and a subtle sweetness comes out as it warms. Dry in the palate. Nice beer.

Pours a translucent copper with thin ring of lacy head that leaves light lace. Aroma is funky sour fruit and light raspberry tartness. Taste follows, awesome funk and sour mix. Really nicely done. jeremyh70 (1103) - Missouri, USA - NOV 28, 2013
Pours a light copper with a pink tint, has very little head and lacing. Aroma is tart with light berry and vanilla character. Taste is tart with sour raspberry and some tannic qualities. Oaky and light vanilla with a dry wine finish. Mouthfeel is slick with a light medium body and medium carbonation. Very nice and tasty sour ale with good balance of tartness and barrel character. Nice dryness. jahshuwuh (567) - USA - NOV 28, 2013
A reddish copper color no head. A sour berry smell, red wine, vanilla. A tame sour taste, vanilla, some smoke, dry, light carbonation. A good mix of flavors. Interesting and refreshing.
