brokensail (16328) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 11, 2010
A: The pour is a very muddled brown color with plenty of red highlights and a short lived off-white head on top. Not particularly attractive in any sense. S: A very pungent raspberry aroma, as you would expect, which provides a nice mix of tartness and acidity with a mild sweetness. There is a nice contribution from the oak as well, along with a very light funkiness, and plenty of lactic acidity and only slight vinegar notes. T: The flavors mimic the nose quite well. The raspberries are certainly the star of the beer and work very nicely with a strong acidity and a minimal vinegar flavor. The oak and fruit skins provide a very nice dry and tannic quality. M: A medium bodied beer with a puckering tartness, full carbonation, and a dry finish. D: Im usually not the hugest fan of the framboise variety of lambic/sour beers, but this was a really pleasant and refreshing take on it.

mcberko (16054) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 5, 2012
375mL bottle, pours an opaque burgundy with a very large, slowly-dissipating pinkish beige head. Aroma is full of tart raspberries, maybe some other berries, wood, subtle vinegar / acetic notes, and yeast - seems quite dry. Flavour is extremely vinegary, with the tart raspberries being moderate with no sweetness, overshadowed by the acetic notes; also some oaky / woody notes and moderate a funky quality. Basically summarized as a very highly tart raspberry fruit beer coated in a highly acetic / vinegary quality. Very well-made and enjoyable in smaller portions.

bhensonb (14622) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 25, 2010
Bottle from Perrys Liquor. 33 cl; c&c. Pours dark murky brown with a 4 finger lightly pinkish beige head. Bottle aroma is sour with a tart raspberry note. Sniffing head gives much less information - primarily berry. Flavor is sour with sweet raspberry. Sour wins. Very tart. The berry stays to the end. Grabs the mouth strongly. One of a kind.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a hazy reddish copper color with a mostly lasted frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy sour yeast and tart berry aroma. Medium to full body with a tingly texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & tart fruit flavor with a medium to heavy tart & sour finish of moderate to long duration.
