Hazy red brown pour with a thin white head. Very fruity raspberry aroma. Flavor is sour, a bit ascetic, with tannic buitter notes. Some spice, almost a touch of curry. Acid is a bit overpowering, but a decent beer. callmemickey (4543) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 9, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 A: Pale, clear orange-pink-red body. Thin white collar with no lacing.
S: Funky overdose of raspberry. Mead-like boozy sweetness comes through.
T: Raspberries, strawberries, lemons and cherries with a sweet and sour acidity. Hints of oak and bretty funk.
M: Solidly carbonated with a tart, puckering finish. Slight burn in the back of the throat from the solventy, mead-like notes.
O: Not sure what to make of this beer. It was nice, but it was a bit off.

bottle at 5k tasting - freaking amazing. Huge sourness with a huge sweetness and tongue tingly. Packed with berry fruitiness and woody earthiness, long, tart finish. yobdoog (1888) - Kingston, New York, USA - JUN 10, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2011 This was a lively one. Aroma is sour, tart, fruity with some back sweetness and what I expect to be very acidic. Almost a rush of lemon, citrus and sour strawberry up the nose. Flavor is very sour, great overall, nice pickable fruit flavor, citrus, grapes, strawberry, raspberry with that kick of vinegar at the end. Really enjoyable even though the enamel of my teeth is now less. Addition from 2nd tasting. Has hints of creamy fruity cake, slightly buttery but still really sour, lots of strawberry, Pwn3d (1962) - Manhattan, New York, USA - MAY 20, 2011
Sessions with James, Dallas, Pat, and Bobby. Much more sour than 008. Sweet peach and sugary tartness. Absolutely acidity in a bottle..burns the while way dkwn

Bottle. Pours a red amber with tiny head. Aroma is ripe peaches with sour citrus. Awesome taste is heavy sour with a vinegar aftertaste. Ridiculously sour. anders37 (26641) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 15, 2011

Bottle shared amongst friends. Thanks to Brad for providing 004 for the side-by-side comparison. Served in a Bruery tulip.
Gusher! Bam. Wow did this one gush, even with all the precautions we took. Chilled bottle was slowly leaked of excess pressure. After that, slowly pulling the cork up resulted in a good amount of foam and a hefty dose of noise. After that, a beautiful beer ensued.
The beer itself is a lovely pinkish-red with hints of mahogany. Good white head initially forms, though it doesn’t stick around for too long. Leaves some good lacing. The nose is really fantastic, bringing bright notes of red grapes, strawberry seed, and raspberry before giving way to plenty of lactic acid and a really nice funk presence. Mild oak in the background. Earthy as well. The nose on this was much, much more intense than the 004.
The flavor carried many of the same notes as the nose did. Great funk presence underneath a very strong amount of fruit. Strawberry seeds sat in front and were accompanied by ripe raspberry and a bit of red grapes. Acid was spot on, shining behind the fruit and adding a fantastic complexity to the brew. The funk fit right in with the fruit and made the beverage seem somewhat rustic. Mouthfeel was dry and acidic, with a biting finish. Good carbonation in the beer itself.
Overall, a devilishly delicious beer that has been my favorite in the Veritas series to date.
