A-pours hazy dark ruby red with notes of pink edges, tan colored head that is thin and bubbly fizzling away quickly leaving no lace.
S-the nose offers notes of dry oak and a touch of vanilla up front, there is a light leathery brett note as rather sour earthy raspberries come in behind. the aromas work nicely together and are very in your face.
T-the acidity is overpowering in this one. the oak is up front and dry, some sweet vanilla behind. slightly sour raspberries come in behind as the high acidity really bulls you over and slightly burns the back of your throat.
M-good full body with lots of carbonation and a prickly feel towards the back. syrupy and coats the mouth and fairly dry in the finish.
D-the nose offers a fair bit of balance and maybe a touch of funk. the flavors are great but the acidity is so strong detracts from those. still very ripe fruits give it the best attempt at balancing it out.
A-po hazy dark ruby red with notes of pink edges, tan colored head that is thin and bubbly fizzling away quickly leaving no lace.
S-very light oak notes with a ton of raspberry. just a hint of funk in the back with some light acidity.
T-huge sweet raspberry up front, huge sourness in the back. lots of acidity and tartness with just a hint of the oak towards the back.
M-good full body with lots of carbonation and a prickly feel towards the back. syrupy and coats the mouth.
D-this has a huge sourness and tons of raspberry flavors. the balance between the sweetness and the sourness is quite nice, both are huge. LtDan (1806) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - MAY 13, 2010
Thanks to iowaherkeye, big time. 12.5 oz. bottleOdeed (1805) - Bakersfield, California, USA - APR 24, 2010
Appearance: Pours a murky brownish red. Starts with a decent sized tight head that subsides to mere swirls. There isn’t much lacing left behind with this beer.
Aroma: Raspberry puree, red wine and wood tannins.
Taste: Huge tart raspberry, vinegar, lemon and wood. Not too acidic, but definitely very pronounced sourness. The alcohol is pretty well hidden as well.
Mouthfeel: Chunky, chewy and fizzy.
Overall: A world class beer. A bit hardy, but I would still go to this beer for refreshment. I’d probably pair this with quality dark chocolate.
Dark red body with a whit head.the aroma blends up raspberries,cherries,and funk.Flavor is much of the same with a nice malty finish.

Bottle from BOLTZ7555. Thanks Jason!!! Prepared for a possible gusher but no such problems. Pours a stunning reddish-brown color with shades of pink and topped with a fluffy head. Quality head retention with blotchy lacing. Huge fruity notes in the aroma; raspberries, cherries, vines, leaves, horseblanket funk. This thing really opens up, just a wonderful scent. Flavors follow and do not disappoint following a nice into. Puckery and sour up front then the intensity mellows a bit with lots of raspberry, barrel notes, and funk. There’s a creamy foundation to this and I pick up some serious fresh soft raspberry flavors underneath all the sour funk. Has a funky wild berry taste to it almost like there’s a little cherry and strawberry mixing in. Dry finish with oak and some lingering tart raspberry. Really good stuff. Say what you want about LA but Tomme can make some real gems. My bottle didn’t last very long. Thanks again Jason for the chance to try this. kschep (1707) - DENMARK - OCT 15, 2011
Nose is heavy hay, barn yard, decent and broad raspberry, weak glue, feel is medium, carb is medium with small bubbles, taste is heavy mediumsour grapes, raspberry, dry champagne notes, jinroh (1704) - ESTONIA - JAN 31, 2016
Pours copper-red, bit of foam, not much though. Aroma has rasberry full on, sort of feels like fresh rasberry jam that I picked by myself when I was a kid. Taste is intensely sour, rasberry there, not too sweet, acidity cleaning the pallet. Totally full on framboise, real nice and lovable.

Aroma is raspberries; wood, oak, candi sugar and soda juice. Taste is sour raspberries, raspberry soda, oak, lemon tart, very acidicy rather vinegary. Interesting but not what I had hoped for.
