Enjoyed last night at Doug's house on March 20. 500 mL bottle, Blend 7. Thanks Dude, this is a long time want! The pour is a dark, dark red, almost black, with a thin ring of darker pink colored head that vanishes almost all away to nothing. The aroma is fantastic. There is so much jammy fruit throughout this it's nuts. he bright raspberry, fleshy, yet tart and sour just makes your mouth water. A light dry fruitiness comes on the back end. I love this. The flavor matches. So fruity, sour, jammy, tart, and clean. Fuck. Great fruit heaviness and a hint of dryness, all while remaining fleshy and juicy. The mouth feel is crisp and clean with a bright carbonation and a lingering fruity sourness that just makes you want another drink. Damn this is an amazing beer. 9 4 9 5 18 BlazerT (1379) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JAN 5, 2018
Nice light heavy raspberry aroma, slightly tart and moderately sour. Taste is moderate sweet with moderate acidity - quite a long duration, tart. Medium body, oily texture, rather soft carbonation .Quite drinkable. Maakun (7223) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 3, 2018
Bottle shared at Himmeriget. Clear dark ruby with short lasting pink head. Strong sour raspberries, raspberry pits, hay, soft old oak, funk, light mineral. Very nice fruits with soft underlying funk. Not too different from fresh fruit lambic I’d say. Medium sour, light bitter and sweet. About medium bodied with soft carbonation. Fucking lovely. neongolden (2257) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2018
(On tap @ MBCC 2017 Yellow Session, Copenhagen) Pours hazy dark red with a pale pink head. Aroma is deep punchy raspberry, fresh and lightly jammy, touches of cherry or other tart red berry in there too, lightly tart, oaky and funky hints, a bit of berry seed bitterness. Flavour is conveying similar notes, raspberry is the dominant factor, some berry seed bitterness, softly tannic oak, low funk, rather tart with light sweetness, and a drying bitterness. Unfortunately I found the fruit concentration in the flavour rather low, bordering on watery. Mouthfeel was light to medium bodied with average carbonation. I don't know whether the keg format did not flatter this or what but I was expecting a lot more concentration from the reputation. Having this shortly after a Bokkereyder Framboos variant, the fruit on the tongue a shadow of that beer. Sarlacc83 (2527) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 15, 2017
A: Dark raspberry in color with a thin white head.
N: Big raspberry and grapefruit. Lemon zest. Oak. There is a nice cracker. Sulfuric. More of the raspberry. Balsalmic vinegar.
T: Very sharp with the raspberry sourness. Light sweetness but more of the vinegar.
M: Light body, no alcohol, biting carbonation.
O: Good. Reminds me of Block 15. Nice but could use a little refinement of acidity

Sample at Hops & Pie during the "GABF Week, CSA Portfolio Tasting" on 10/04/2017. Hazy red color with a medium pinkish-white head that burns away steadily to a film. Short strings of lace. Aroma of tart berry and citrus, yeast and malt. Light-bodied with a tart raspberry and cherry character, and flavors of mildly funky yeast and doughy malt. The finish is sour cherry and berry. Good beer all around. jake65 (4034) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - JUL 30, 2017
Bottle at RBSG. Ruby red color with a small bubbly head. Aromatic with fresh raspberries, sweet and tart. Tastes rich with fresh berries and plenty of sour? a nice level of pucker. Light oak barrel influence, but this is all about the fruit and it delivers wonderful sweet and tart flavors. hayduke (5762) - Eureka, California, USA - JUL 29, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2017 Taster at the RBSG Grand Tasting. In my glass a ruby red color with a white head with pink tinges in the bubbles. Powerful nose with lots of raspberry and some tartness. Medium body. The flavor here is nicely sour with lots of raspberry and oak from the aging. The finish is raspberry tart. One of my favorite beers of this tasting. joet (2682) - Wilsonville, Oregon, USA - JUL 29, 2017
