Westmeister's rating

Westmeister (2127) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 14, 2013
Bottle shared by Kiefer. Super pumped to try this offering. Pours something that looks like a bloody mary with too much vodka. Super murky brown/red. Aroma is heavy shour cherries and hints of raspberries that perhaps can be seen as some noticeable sweetness. Taste is acidic cherries, tartness, raspberries, earthy. Medium body. This was killer and is holding up amazingly. F-yea!

375ml 2011 Vintage kindly decellared by oldmanriver upon Thanksgiving, merci. - - Correctly classified as Sour/Wild, though it aspires to Oud Bruin - the raspberries give it away. - Even if Most of the framboise specifics have faded, the acidic fruitiness in aroma feels organic and not wilfully "sour" as with many US producers: very little lacto, a red berry tartness and mature oak mustiness blend together very well, with a winey meatiness suavely inviting you to take a sip. Age may have laid some milk chocolate underneath the lighthearted WestCoast berry sunshine here, which does it loads of good, helping it attain complexity, and dare I say grandeur. Lost Abbey to my palate makes the best once-Belgian-homage US "wild/sour" ales, and I believe their weapon is restraint and time.

Samuel214 (1569) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 9, 2017
Flaska från SB, ca 2 år gammal(?). Mörk, kopparröd/brun med litet beiget skum. Mängder av balsamico, hallon, syrliga körsbär, körsbärskärnor, stall, röda vinbär och fat-toner i både doft och smak. Ordentligt bett i syran och tydlig fatkaraktär. Snustorr avslutning med riktigt snygga ektoner och syrliga hallon. Mycket av allt och samtidigt riktigt välbalanserad. Riktigt gott!

hivemind (933) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 28, 2017
Had on tap with Paul D. at Barcade JC way back during NLCS or WS 2015. Unbelievable sour with rich cherry/raspberry dominating and striking a great balance between tartness, acidity and robust fruitiness.

geolgau (544) - Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA - NOV 21, 2017
Aroma is incredibly fresh and fruity, potent and woody. Oak, raspberry, fermented fruit, sour berries, tart, a bit of biscuit. Jesus Christ, this is awesome. Taste is even better, complex and tarty. Sweet, sour, woody. Man, this is dope! That raspberry combined with the oak is divine. Stone cherry, red wine, aceto balsamico. Nice carbonation, integrates well overall. After taste is sweet and fruity, acidic. Holy shit!

bjorn77 (842) - Kraków, POLAND - NOV 18, 2017
Aromat:cierpkie, czerwone owoce, bardziej wiśnie niż maliny, a w tle dzikie, stajenne nuty. Bretty są łagodne, natomiast cierpkie, owocowe nuty dosyć ostre. Wygląd: czerwonobrązowe, półprzejrzyste, kawowa mała pianka od razu znikła do zera. Smak: bardzo kwaśne, zero słodyczy, masa cierpkich wiśni głównie, dopiero w tle pojawiają się maliny, wnosząc odrobinę owocowej słodyczy. Mamy też inne kwaśne owoce, tarninę, aronie, czerwone wytrawne wino. Mocne nuty drzewne od beczki, bardzo taniczne, a nawet trochę octowe, ściągające na języku. Stajenne nuty bardzo umiarkowane, łagodne, dominuje tu owocowa cierpkość, głównie wiśnie, kwaśność zagłusza tu te maliny. Ogólnie bardzo wytrawne, ale nie aż tak do bólu. Odczucie: ciało średnie, alkoholu nie czuć, ściągające na języku, taniczne, na finiszu kwaśne. Całość: dobrze ułożone i skomponowane piwo, fajne drzewne nuty beczki, bardzo wytrawne, ciekawie owocowe, choć te maliny mogły by być mocniejsze, bo tak to czuć głównie kwaśne, soczyste wiśnie. Doceniam klasę, ale mnie nie porwało. 7/4/7/4/15

Tap. Pours clear crimson. Aroma and flavor are raspberry jam, oak, crisp acidity, and some fleshy berry bitterness. Light body.

3.7
snoworsummer (6273) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 11, 2017
Bottle at Pizza Port OB. Pours clear burgundy with almost no head. Tastes like raspberry, yeast, booze, tart cherry, and tart lemon. Light body and medium carbonation. Smells like yeast, vinegar, and tart berry.
