Sampled at Julio’s "Funk Fest". Not a bad wild ale and kudos for it not being too overly rasberry flavored. Subtle rasberry sweetness to offset the sour wild stuff going on.

On tap in NJ. Doesn’t seem so retired. Pours a cloudy reddish brown with a quickly fading white head. Light funk and raspberry aroma. Taste is a smack in the face. Puckery, sharp, that fades fast and is replaced by hops (?!) And raspberry. Nothing lingers. Pretty light bodied. Dry.

Tap sample at Smuttynose brewery in April 2010. Nice to get a pre-release sample. Only trouble was I misheard the name as just "Roostershire" so, without any proper badging to go on, I had some difficulty identifying the beer subsequently. A little surprised to see some relatively low scores here. Tasty juicy fruit - didn’t seem particularly artificial / syrupy to me. Plus a tart, modestly sour bite. Not the sourest thing I’ve ever tasted but enough to provide a decent counterpoint. I liked this a lot.

Bottle from Mike.
Pours a deep amber with a nose of cherry, raspberry, and leather. Flavor is tart cherry, horse blanket, and must. Tingly on the tongue. Great beer.

Bottle thanks to zinister at August tasting. Pours a clear ruby amber with small off white head. The aroma is sour fruit and cherry. Light mouthfeel with sour cherry and a bit watery. Meh

Bottle thanks to zinister at the Houston August 2011 tasting. Pours bright red with no head. Nose is cough syrup, some fruity notes. Taste is a bit syrupy, fake raspberries, flat, and one dimensional. blah.

@dstructos Daks Back-22oz bottle from Charleston Beer X-pours a disappearing off white head and orange/red color. Aroma is medium fruit, some medium malt. Taste is medium fruit-some raspberry tart, some herbal hops.

Growler… Pours clear and dirty orange with a small, creamy, white head. Spice-rack coriander or clove and a mild cherry note in the aroma. Medium-bodied and watery with very little carbonation. The flavor is quite sour with a splash of lemon juice and a lesser spice component. Finishes tart and a touch stale.

Bottle shared by...I can’t remember. Aroma has a nice fruit spice to it, slight sour mix but not overly sour. Flavor is tart and semi sweet. A interesting treat.
