Bottled (Thanks veliempojot). Reddish colour, small white head. Aroma is raspberries, some mild alcohol, quite sweet and mild toffee. Flavour is raspberries, rather tart wood and has a very dry palate to it. Sweet and tart, but not very sour. Stil lextremely dry. Beautiful.

Bottled, thanks Craig. Hazy strawberry colour, no head. Funky citric raspberry aroma. Tart and slender, freshening acidity. Tanninic and citric with some vinegar and grape stone bitterness. A spritzy, soft highly refreshing beer with juicy intense flavour.

THE stout tasting Pt1. Thanks again to Bruce for some light shade after the Dark Lord attack. Light haze on this red - pink beer. Pretty pink head! Light crispy and airy palate. Mild minerals and white wine sourness. More cherry than raspberry tart fruit. Subtle marzipan. Semi dry finish. One of the more approachable Russian River sours.

Bottle at pre Xmas tasting (thanks to Frank/Ramnuts) - 21/12/12. Hazed amber/red with no head. Nose is wood, tarte raspberries, sour tones. Taste comprises a wonderfully balanced sour raspberry flavour, light sugars, tarte berry fruits, earthy, funky, wood notes. Medium bodied with delicates spritzyness, leating to a fruity tarte and dry finish. Excellent!

2012 Vintage. 375mL bottle, sent from Perrin515 (thanks a lot, Patrick), pours a very vibrant, opaque reddish pink with a small pink-tinted head. Aroma is all raspberries, very potently dominating, not really any of the Temptation base or any sour / wild notes, except maybe a little oak - but this is all raspberries. Flavour brings out potent raspberries upfront immediately, but then it shifts to a funkier, more wild palate, with oak, a little vanilla, and sour raspberries. Very fruity initially, and transitions to become funky, wild, and oaky. Very complex and delicious. One of the best framboises Ive had to date.

brokensail (16401) - Dublin, California, USA - MAR 18, 2012
Pours a vibrant pinkish-red color with a white head. Intense raspberry tartness and a rather acetic sourness overall. Slight funk to the nose, maybe some grass and hay to go with all the fruit. The flavor is a bit too sour for me, mostly due to the acetic qualities. Lots of raspberry flavor which does keep me drinking it, though. Not terribly complex, but a little bit of funk is there.
