2011 bottle at Lost Abbey tasting room. Hazy light rose with an off white head. Raspberry sour and tart aroma that once it breathed for a bit improved significantly, also developed a bit of farmhouse funk (mild). High carbonation, sour twang, medium bodied, good dry finish with raspberries. konstifik (573) - SWEDEN - JUL 17, 2011
Rust colored with a small tanned head. Wonderful rich flavours with raspberries, almonds, cookies, vinous and a nice tartness. Finishes mouthpuckering sour. Great sour ale! DeputyAndy (636) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 16, 2011
Draft at Monkís. Raspberries raspberries raspberries pretty much sums this beer up. Nicely tart balanced with the sweet flavor. Nice range of alcohol so itís not too heavy on the tongue. Very refreshing. maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 12, 2011

Shared a bottle with a friend. Poured into a wide mouth glass.
Pours a murky reddish brown. A small amount of head but not a lot.
Smells of tart rasberries. A slight bit of malt but not a lot. The dry/tart fruit is very strong.
Taste is sweet rasberry upfront. then changes to a very sour candy. Then evolves into a dry lingering sweetness. That makes you crave more.
Mouthfeel is just right. The carb gives it you just enough release from the sourness.
an absolutely amazing beer. I think I will have to a trip up to the brewery to get some more bottles!!!

12.7 oz bottle from moej...er...baldwizard--thanks Joe! - Pours mahogany with ruby highlights, and a big fizzy light tan head. Raspberries on the nose--not artificial-smelling, but the real deal--though the smell isnít terribly pungent. Sour, tart malt, with a touch of chocolate-covered cherries. The taste has the same raspberry flavor, but is more tart, with an acidic tang. It has some vinous qualities, and the oak mellows and smooths everything out. Very nice--I probably should have drank this sooner so the raspberries were a little more in the forefront.
Sharp, biting carbonation, with a body thatís a touch thin but that seems appropriate for the taste of the beer. italarican (1546) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2011
On tap at Monkís. Pours a full maroon, headless. Aroma is rich of pureed raspberries with simple syrup. Flavor has really nice raspberry and green apple tartness (predominantly raspberry. Sharp, prickly mouthfeel with a sweet and tart raspberry finish. Delicious and a true tribute to raspberry, as both the sweet and tart qualities stand out. oh6gdx (26482) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 27, 2011

Deep reddish coppery colour, quite murku, with a small quickly vanishing head. Aroma is tart and sourish wooden, fruity and berryish. Flavour is quite similar along with some spicyness. A rather pleasantly balanced sour beer. Also has some slight sweet berries along with the tartness.
375ml bottle. Modest gusher upon opening. Ugly, murky beer. Big raspberry aroma and flavor with the typical LA strong sourness. Highly carbonated. Iíd like to see this a lot cleaner and more properly conditioned. Itís just a mess of a beer that manages to still taste pretty damn good.
