(Bottle, thanks mybestfriend) Pours muddy brown with orange red highlight. Medium sized, nougat coloured head. The aroma is heavily fruity with raspberry jam up front but there is also room for apple candy, blueberry and rose hip soup. Lots of acid lacto character on the nose. Citric. Cracker-like malt with a whisper of chocolate. Hint of damp basement and vinegar. The flavour is dry and heavy acidic with no bitterness. Both high on fruits and sour bacteria. Lingering citric and raspberry tones in the finish. The mouthfeel tart with a medium carbonation. Medium bodied.

light reddish with a fizzy head. Nice fruity raspberry aroma and taste without being over sweet and with a nice dry finish.

dogfish120love (1198) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 20, 2010
Pours a rusty murky reddish brown with some almost pink hues. Bubbles rapidly approach the surface, but the lacing is minimal. The aroma is vinous and the scent of raspberries is pleasantly overwhelming. The scent of Vinegar is enticing and notes of bubblegum are also present. The flavor is comprised of a slight sweetness from the raspberries accompanied by some serious tartness. The palate has a slight metallic structure keeping it from earning a perfect 5.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 14, 2010
Bottle@Hndverkerstuene, shared with gunnar. Pink-shaded blond two-finger head. Body is opaque, deep ruby. Smell of sour raspberry drops, cherry stones and marzipan. Intense flavor of raspberry-fruity sourness. Both fresh and mouth-puckering. Vinagarish in a pleasant way, with a subtle fruity sweetness below. Well-bodied. Slick. Lingering tart fruits in the finish. Nice all over.

Bottle shared by Eric. Thanks!! Pours cloudy amber color with off white head. Aroma is vinegar and raspberries. High carbonation for the mouthfeel. Flavor is straight vinegar and raspberries. This is a highly carbonated and very tasty brew. Very tart.

Thank you dearly, Dstructo. Our bottle was muy amorosa, a gusher. Lost half the small bottle :( As a result of the overly eager beer, the pour is frightfully ugly. Its so muddy it looks like tomato juice only with the color of blueberry juice, a dirty bruised red. The aroma makes up for it, though. First whiff is a bowl of raspberries. Nice! Further inspection reveals some phenols, but oddly they dont get in the way. Not pulling a lot of funk from the aromas but that all changes at first sip when the tartness really comes through. The mouthfeel is thick and thin at the same time, with the thickness coming from yeast. Belying the way the bottle popped, only a mild bit of carbonation is here. Fairly acidic brew, certainly has some of the the Flemish acetic overtones and certainly fun barrel bugs but not necessarily Brett. Complexity is added by a straightforward load of musty raspberries and the mellowing subtle sweetness of the malt. Very enjoyable overall.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2012 Big thanks to bmanning for this bottle. A: Pours a moderate amber with some definitely red highlights. A bit disappointing compared with the nose and flavor; given these, I would expect a big, bright pink-red body a la the Cantillon Lou Pepe Kriek and Framboise. S: More than makes up for the "lacking" appearance with incredible notes of fresh, ripe raspberry and a nearly-bracing sourness level. Mostly straight sourness, with a bit of vinegar, funk, and sweetness thrown in. T: Absolutely incredible. This is perhaps the best fruit-containing sour beer that Ive ever had, certainly above Blabaer and up with my all-time favorite, Lou Pepe Kriek. Nice tart notes of raspberry, hints of oak, funk, and a good amount of residual sweetness come up alongside the puckering sour characteristics. M: Sublime. Incredibly sour, but the dichotomy created by the tart and sweet aspects of the raspberries really works well to bring a complex, cohesive whole. D: I never wanted it to end. Simple as that. Thank you, Lost Abbey. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 05-18-2010

gunnar (8214) - Sandnes, NORWAY - NOV 24, 2010
Bottle at Hndverkerstuene, Oslo. Shared with OleR. Pours murky dark amber with a shy layer of white bubbles. Aroma is powerful tart raspberries and some aceton or vinegar.Taste is strong sour fruity, almost burning in the mouth, but a nice malty body makes this an interesting and enjoyable beer, at least for a sweet tooth like me.
