Bottle thanks to Todd! Beer of the night for me.
A: Pure red nearing purple. Very little head.
N: Raspberries, cherries, grapefruit, lemons, oak, cabernet sauvignon grapes, leather, tobacco, and more of that sweet delicious black raspberry.
T: Sour, fruity, slightly sweet.
M: Carbed, crisp, dry and biting. Lighter body.
O: I love big raspberry beers. Compares favorable to Hommage and LP Framboise, in my opinion. It’s incredibly powerful and delicious, and if I ever came across a bottle again, I would drink it up so fast. Highly, highly recommended. douglas88 (9573) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 6, 2014
750 thanks to Todd. Pours a cloudy purple color with a small white head. A big fruity nose. Sweet, yeasty, a bit of oak, clear berries, a bit of sourness. The overall flavor is an awesome bouquet of fresh raspberries and oak. Tannins. Lovely. Luk_ (243) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 28, 2014
Dark red pour with spotty white head. Lots of funky raspberries in the aroma, some grass maybe a little white wine. Taste is sharp acidity, raspberries again, some oak. Raspberries and funk took over the wine barrel, but it added some complexity. I thought it was well executed for an american lambic, it wasn’t so far away from the Rosé de Gambrinus we had earlier. It has definitly more power than any of the Upland’s. jredmond (8518) - New York, New York, USA - APR 2, 2014
Backlog 2013. Bottle courtesy of Mike at Franks with vinny, Alan, Barry and Bill. Pours a deep, deep red wine body with no head. Aroma is perfect - sour raspberry, cherries and blackberries. Mouthfeel is super tart - notes of sour cherries, black berries and raspberries, wonderfully balanced acidity, faint oak and funk. illidurit (2354) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 31, 2014
Bottle shared courtesy Dustin. Thanks! Pours a deep murky purple shade. Aroma is flush with blackberries and raspberries, and a firm currant tone as well. This is... very sour. A little like what I imagine unripe berry juice would taste like. Heavy citric acid along with lactic notes. This is not for the uninitiated.

Aroma is juicy raspberry, slight seediness, noticeable tartness with nice lactic notes, vanilla, woody finish. Taste is tart, concentrated raspberry, slightly viscous, jammy, lactic sour notes. Light medium body. Lovely, well done. deekyn (1459) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 9, 2014
