Sample (about 12cl) at SBWF 2011.
A little unclear reddish with a small head. Very nice aroma and taste of mainly raspberries. Also wood, almonds and quite a lot of carbonation. Really sour, particularly the finish. Very refreshing, a wonderful beer!

12.7 oz. brown bottle. An unclear reddish brown with a fizzly head. the aroma is partially sweet but intensely sour with a good amount of berries. Like a field of fresh rasberries. The taste is mouth puckering sour with some sweet coming from the rasberries. The berry sweetness seems to add a nice character to the intense sourness. this cured my sour fix for the weekend. The carbonation is high with a fizzy mouthfeel. I really hope this makes it into some distribution because this is great. One of the most sour beers out there.

Sour raspberry and garlic aroma. Cloudy auburn, thin head. Raspberry flavor, sour. Delicious, but somewhat simple. michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 4, 2011

375ml bottle at home kindly shared by oj83. Was not massively impressed by this and it certainly did not live up to the hype. Unbalanced Oud brune with an overtly lactic profile that did not blend well with the fruit. Smelt like raspberry jam and poured dark brown. The taste was honey lactic acid and raspberries without complexity. Did not finish bottle. neuromatt (1226) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 18, 2011
375 mL bottle from the brewery, served in a snifter at a tasting at Dan’s. Pours reddish brown with a moderate tan head. The head fades quickly to a thin remnant, leaving a small amount of lace. The nose is intensely sour, with notes of raspberry and oak, and touches of caramel and earth. The flavour is intensely sour throughout with plenty of raspberries and oak. The finish is average in length, sour and crisp. On the palate, it is medium in body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a nice sour ale but the raspberries are a bit too dominant for my taste. 2011-07-09 olio (10691) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 13, 2011
375 ml bottle.laiti (8531) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 13, 2011
Pours dark hazy red colour with small head. Aroma is sour rasberries, oak notes and basement aromas. Flavour is very sour rasberries, some ripe fruits on the background, oak and some citrus. Palate is very sour all the way and is intensified towards the end. Exquisite.

37,5 cl bottle @ home
The cork broke into pieces when opening bottle. Aroma has lots of sour raspberries and oak. Very intensive and sour flavour has shitloads of sour raspberries with oakiness. A bit too much CO2 on palate, but still very good stuff!
375 ml bottle.
Very tight corked. Pours a deep, hazy reddish brown colour with a white foamy head. Aroma of strong real raspberries, leaves and some acidity. Flavour of strong , sour, actually a bit burning raspberries, honey, strong oak and acidity. Full bodied with a mouth-drying finish of a massive amount of sour raspberries and oak again. Truly a sour ale. Top-notch.
