Sampled at the Saint Louis Ratebeer Gathering into tulip glass. Thanks, Dan, a real highlight of the night. Poured a hazy straw color with white head, good Belgian lace and noticeable alcohol legs. Aromas and flavors of a Berliner Weiss, with raspberries blended-in and about double the alcohol percentage (warming but well-hidden.) Very tart, slight sourness and barnyard. Effervescent mouthfeel. Dry and fruity, metallic Champagne-like finish. Extremely well-crafted, truly awesome beer. Skitchbandit (3) - - NOV 2, 2013 does not count
One of the best sour beers I've had. The raspberries are delicious! Unicorn beer (collab with Bruery & Bottleworks)

Shared from a 750ml. Pours a beautiful hazy yellow. Smells like yeast, tart fruit, wine and vine. Tastes like raspberry iced tea. Herby, vinous, tea leaves, aged raspberry flavor over a fresh flavor and some oak in the background as well. Bright sugary and tart notes highlight the finish. This is just one fine fine sour berliner or imperial wit or whatever you want to call it. If I ever see this again I’m going to hop on it immediately. Honestly I’ve felt lately that some of the Bruery offerings I’ve had are a little over rated, this one rocks, maybe the best I’ve had by them. cakanator (452) - South Hadley, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 26, 2011
sample @ REM b4, really excited once I knew this was opened, yet not surprised, there was alot of power that day. Pours a hazy off golden hue, nice head. Aromas are light raspberry, some funk and tart. Fantastic balanced palate, the tartness comes through in the finish but the fruit not as developed as i thought. None the less this should age amazing, I wish it were more available. Smurf2055 (1400) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Pours grapefruit/peach juice color with small white head. Smell is sweet apricot. Taste is lighter tangerine, apricot finish. So easy to drink. This was my favorite beer at Brouwer’s SourFest 2012

Pours a cloudy gold with no head. Aroma of sour wheat. Taste follows with great raspberry notes. Sour, refreshing, and absolutely delicious.

UPDATED: APR 1, 2015 6oz pour at Bottleworks XIV release. I went into this knowing nothing more than the name. 2" foam white head that sticks around for awhile. Golden color, slightly hazy. Aroma is raspberry, funk, a nice citrusy bubblegum, and spice (some clove and pepper). Sexy. Taste: Huge burst of tart gives way to smooth, well-balanced lingering bitterness and acidity. Dry finish with beautiful bouquet of fruit-tart flavors that fade stunningly. Lively carbonation, creamy texture leaves a nice mouth coating, medium/full body. Overall: Fantastic. 50belair (3643) - Florida, USA - APR 28, 2013
Batch #1, had again at Brouwers 10th anniversary. Still nice, though with a lot more delicate sweet floral aspects that I don’t remember from the first time around. Nowhere near the 4.5 i gave it before (closer to 3.9), but I’m leaving the original anyway so I don’t forget how much I loved this beer, at least for one instant in time.
UPDATED: APR 29, 2013 Bottle. Cloudy yellow pour with a big white head. Enticing raspberry, vinous, and woody aromas. Crisp and clean with delicious sour raspberries, decadent red wine, oak, white nectarine, and sour melon notes. Fantastic mouthfeel with good body and perfect carbonation. With 26 months or so in the bottle, this ale is is simply fantastic.... merc7186 (3142) - North Tonawanda, New York, USA - OCT 14, 2013

Overall, an extremely balanced sour beer. luttonm (6270) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 25, 2017
Bottleworks, Seattle. Creamy white foam, clear rich orange body. Tight, tart orange citrus zest nose. Fascinating body that is a lovely raspberry, rich witbier. Heavy alcohol wit with lots of fruit, tart red with some ester rounding it out. Astoundingly balanced and tasty. Nearly perfect.
