A: A bright pinkish red color with no foam. It has the look of a fruity mixed drink.
S: Mildly tart and a lot of raspberries.
T: As the nose indicates, tons of raspberry flavor. A very nice combination of sweetness and tartness.
M: Not much in the way of carbonation, light in body.
D: A very interesting beer. I was glad to have the chance to try this a few times. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - DEC 7, 2009
(Draught) Pours a cloudy red body with a pinkish head. Aroma of cherry, orange, brandy, and vinous. Flavor of orange peel, vinous, cherry, earth, cranberries, lemon, and funky with a dry finish. j12601 (12700) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - OCT 29, 2009
Pouring at the Night of the Funk event in Boston. Pours a beautiful crimson with a huge pink head. Fruit on the nose, raspberry, with a light funkiness. More fruit comes through in the mouth, with some nice sourness and great acid. A little thin, but really tasty.

Served from a punch bowl at the stone 13th anniversery fest. Reddish brown color, no head. Fruit, cherries, apple, oak, barnyard funk, yeast, tartness, grass, lamon, and sweet malt. Very nice, I enjoyed it. WeeHeavySD (3387) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 11, 2009
Tap. Lost Abbey Sinner’s and Saint’s party. This is one hell of a nice brew with a lot of sour funk. Pours red with a bright white ring. Nose is berry, fruity. Taste is sweet, tart vinous and really damn tasty.

Tap at Night of the Funk. Ruby red pour with a nice, light pink head. Light, floral strawberry sourness in the nose, super clean. The flavor is white berry (the juice, I guess, as I don’t think berries exist, which would mean this actually smelled more like green grape), with a balanced sourness, a touch of oak, actually kind of generic. Full bodied with a punchy peach finish. I tend to think this should fall under sour ale. PilsnerPeter (3046) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 21, 2009
Sampled at Night of the Funk 2009:Hazy ruby pour with a pinkish head. Very fruity aroma- slightly candyish with apparent cranberry-like qualities. Fluffy body with a nice tart flavor. Fruity yet dry with again a cranberry character. Quite simple, yet refreshing and tart with no off flavors. Interesting experiment. JohnC (3008) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - OCT 11, 2009
On tap at Lost Abbey for their Saints and Sinners party, this beer has a nice tangy, fruity, tart yet sweet flavor. iowaherkeye (2703) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - AUG 27, 2009
On tap @ Beachwood BBQ, listed as Sangria. Clear reddish brown with a small off-white head. Ripe bing cherries up front in the flavor with a fair amount of lemony light leather sourness Ɠ-4 of 10) in the wheaty semi-dry finish. Aroma was pretty much the same. Moderate carbonation with a light body. Pretty good. SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - OCT 17, 2009
