Beautiful red coloring, and an extremely tart aroma. Sharp and tart initially, but after it settles on your tongue the raspberries and sour notes of flowers come through nicely. Very good (very expensive) beer.

Clear reddish pour with an off-white head. The head fizzed and disappeared quickly. Aroma is sour and raspberries. Taste was sour, a little dry, tart, and raspberries. xmarcnolanx (937) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - MAR 19, 2012
Aroma is bright cherries, aspirin, some brett farmhouse yeastiness, lactic yogurt, and lemon peels, finishing off in an overripe cherry fashion.
Quite nice and sharp!
Pour is spritzy and lively, but quickly dissipates into a light, headless ruby concoction.
Taste is spritzer water, lemon peel, and watered-down cherries, followed by oak and yeasty funk,, a slight hop bite, and plain yogurt.
Finish is extremely carbonated, aiding the dryness of the beer with a acidic cherry kick.
Quite good, but not amazingly so. nsk79 (25) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - MAR 18, 2012
Pours a red/bronze color, not much head, no lacing. Aroma is berries, grapes, and oak, flavor is the same. The taste is akin to a dry red wine. Very delicious beer.

2011 bottle at home. pale red brown with fizzy head collapsing to no trace. aroma of raspberries and bretty rotting hay. Tart and spritzy carbonationwith some raspberries and a bit more brett flavour. Nice enough but not a patch on cantillon rose de gambrinus that preceded it.

Bottle @ Monk’s Sveavägen. Red colour with no head. Fruity aroma of raspberries. Light raspberry flavour. Not as strong fruitflavour like some fruitbeers tend to have. More subtle, much better. thewolf (12595) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2012

Flavour has goodwill lactic tartness, strawberry, mild funky, lovely lingering dryness. Elegant. JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 16, 2012
Shared by emacgee - thanks, Ethan! Nice looking pour, like a cloudy blood orange hue. Crisp carbonation, prickly mouthfeel. Very intriguing aroma, in part a very dry white wine, elsewhere a pungently fruity brew. Taste was initially quite intensely fruit, with the guts of raspberries making the brew a bit like a variant on Blushing Monk. But the modest brett and vinous qualities give things a quirky and enjoyable twist. NosirIwont (2530) - Frederikssund, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2012

2011 bottle, amber/pink pour. Raspberries and oak aroma. Crisp tart taste of raspberries, funk, and wine. Somewhat subdued overall, curious to see how this one ages.
