Bruce’s Birthday Bash at the Craft Clerkenwell. Thanks to Bruce again! The Eric Cantona looky likey threw me for a bit! Very hazy amber beer. Small suddy cream coloured head. Light and slightly dry. Mild sourness, fresh raspberry. A little lemon. Zingy. Mild seltzer minerals. Semi dry finish. Not bad.

Medium sweet flavor with big tangy bite, some juicy berries, mellow dryness. Medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Pungent tartness to finish, more acetic zing, lemon, berries.

750mL bottle, sent from julian (thanks a lot man), pours an opaque dark orangey amber with no head. Fantastic aroma of various berries (cherries and raspberries come to mind), low tartness, and oak. Flavour is less monolithicly fruity, with oak barrels, cherries, raspberries, and some acetic tones - only a slight tartness. Finishes slightly tart, moderately acidic, and berry-centric fruity. Excellent stuff. jtclockwork (16831) - , New Jersey, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Bottle shared at tasting at my house. Pours amber brown with tan/off white head. Nose and taste of tart raspberry, funky wood, wild yeast, light cherry vinegar tartness, light caramel and aged oak. Medium body. Well balanced tartness - not overpowering. Raspberry shines through a bit more than the cherry. brokensail (16601) - Dublin, California, USA - NOV 17, 2011
Cloudy pinkish red color with pink-white head. Very fruit forward on the nose. Seems like a combination of cherries and raspberries. Lots of funky straw and earth notes, quite a bit of lemon, too. The fruit flavor is similarly intense on the palate, maybe a bit sweeter, though. Still a fair amount of lemon. bhensonb (15489) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 20, 2012
Capped 750 from Marcus. Pours copper with a slight, perhaps lightly pinkish, transient head. Aroma is raspberry. Move over Framboise de Amorosa. Med + body. It’s quite sour, and the sour cherry dominates. Raspberry is a complementary flavor. Finshes marvelously sour, astringent, and very arguably oaky. Yum. djd07 (15275) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 6, 2014
Bottle as shown thanks to Phil. Pours a cloudy amber with small white head that lasts. The aroma is raspberry, funk, oak. Medium mouthfeel with cherry skin, raspberry, funk, and light sour finish. Very good.
