DLD ’11. Huge thanks to lushawn and phaleslu for this incredible hookup. Side by side with Beatification batch 3, similarities were fairly prevalent. Aroma had notes of thick raspberries, with notes of funky cheese, horse sweat, barnyard and some big lemony acetic sour notes with a touch of sweet vanilla hidden. Taste is raspberry, but not just the raspberry, but the whole plant. Notes of sweet raspberry fruit, bitter seed, some vegetal stem, with notes of all funky cheese, horse blanket, sweaty socks, some slight sweet vanilla and bready notes, finishing really dry tannic and oaky with a further lemon acetic sour note. Perfect in every regard to me. daknole (11048) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 14, 2010
LCBS 2010. Bright pinkish/red pour. Aroma is all raspberry and great sour lactic awesomeness. Flavor tastes just like raspberry seeds, oak, vinegar...fruity as hell, tart, mouth watering. Save the tatas! Save second base. GO BOOBS! Love me some breastesses. jredmond (8839) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 21, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2014 Bottle sampled after the 2011 batch. Pours a bright, but hazy amber golden body with nice carbonated lacing. Aroma is aggressive tart fruit, super funky oak, musk, dust, and cotton candy. The mouthfeel on the 2010 batch is definitely more lively, with notes of raspberry bubblegum, sour raspberry, funky fruit skins, oak, sour fruit, and sour cotton candy. One of the greatest sour ales I’ve come across. I will have this again. 50belair (3700) - Florida, USA - OCT 10, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2011 Big props to Dak for supporting the boobies and sharing this bottle at the LCBS 10. Grapefruit in color with wonderful raspberry and funk aromas. This wild ale does not disappoint! Crisp and bubbly with raspberry and tart fruit flavors.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2011 #5000. Pours a blush medium orange marrone body with a light white head. Aromatically dry, bretty, light sour raspberries. Light pit and skins. Soft with a dry raspberry tartness, pitty with raspberry seeds. Hints of citrus with light grapefruit tones. Low acidity with a very nice raspberry drying finish. Absolutely superb and well worth the wait. This is fucking incredible i would drink the shit out of this if i could but i’m happy to share this with the people that have been with me all the way. Cheers.

Rating #2300. 375 ml bottle from kmweaver- can’t thank you enough for sending this, Ken! Tried side-by-side with a Beatification Batch 003 shared by STLWill. Pours a cloudy, dull ruby color with a tinted off-white head. Aroma of fresh raspberries hits immediately, followed by lemon juice, oak, acetic acid, funk, and sugar. The flavor was also featured huge sweet and tart raspberry notes, with oak, lemon juice, vanilla, sugar, yogurt, and funk. Medium-bodied, with a tart, juicy mouthfeel and dry finish. Modest carbonation. Wow, this sour is about as complex and delicious as any I’ve had before. Absolutely lived up to the hype and I’m so grateful I got to try this and share it with great people.
