Bottle shared at Ryans. Pours a gross looking dull golden brown. Where is the red color unless these are golden raspberries? Notes of heavy Rare barrel vinegar acid, bad raspberry, salad dressing, and heartburn. I was in the early lead for worst in show with this one but it got overshadowed by some other trash offerings as the night went on. Never been a fan of the wild ales from RB anstei (2832) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - NOV 10, 2017
Bottle from TRB itself, 2016 vintage. Pours unclear brown. Aroma is pig stables, some raspberries, some funk. Body is light, astringently sour and tart, clean, and raspberries. Low carbonation. Dry and astringent palate. Good. SinH4 (6896) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - NOV 10, 2017
Bottle, many thanks anstei! Hazy brown color with white head. Aroma is raspberry, barrel funk, a touch solvent. Taste is raspberries, vinegar, green goosberries, a touch malty, puckering, but not too puckering, finish. Dry finish, light-bodied, good sourness that is refreshing, and vers clean. Works out nicely, but I hear that is true for all of their beers. Dogbrick (14389) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 9, 2017
Sample from 2016 batch at Hops & Pie during the "GABF Week, CSA Portfolio Tasting" on 10/04/2017. Slightly hazy reddish-amber color with a medium bone white head that dissipates steadily to an outer ring. Stringy lacing. Aroma of tart berry, oak, yeast and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of tart raspberry, oak, herbal yeast and bready malt. The finish is sour with a lingering berry and cherry aftertaste. Good beer all around. zvsn (2424) - ISRAEL - AUG 29, 2017

At a tasting, many thanks, smallish quickly disappearing head, muddy murky light brown color with yellow hues, aroma of red fruits with feral and herbal notes and a hint of metal, raspberry flavor with mellow oxidized notes, strong piercing sourness nicely balanced by a light sweetness. Highly enjoyable and easy to drink, despite being very sour. jinroh (2571) - ESTONIA - AUG 26, 2017
Slight haze and bit of white foam. Sour raspberries in the nose, pure fruit is coming out quite nice. Not sweet at all. Taste is super acidic, well this is sour. Tart on steroids, kind of lemon level sourness. If there was international sourness unit, this would rate high on that. Raspberry still there, super dry, still nice but eyes, bit too sour. rayaron (2126) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - AUG 26, 2017
Bottle sample at a tasting at zvsn’s place. Thanks Alon. Murky copper with no head. The aroma has notes of wild yeasts, raspberry, strawberry, acetone, wood and vinegar. Sour flavor with notes of wood, acetone, raspberry, strawberry and vinegar. Lively carbonation, very dry, medium-bodied. Excellent. fiulijn (21522) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 20, 2017

Cloudy light brown color. Aggressive sour aroma, nice, vinous, fruity, with multiple layers. Aggressive sour mouthfeel, weak; some vinous character, strong astringency in the final, but not a lot of complexity.
Good beer, aroma much more interesting than flavor.
Hazy amber color. Very nice sour nose with amazing raspberry notes and touch of oak. Very tart, tons of fresh raspberries with cherries, green apples and oak. It’s so sour, it’s so intense. I wasn’t expecting the sourness. So nice for a fruit sour. Dry, sour and raspberry finish.
