2014.2 This was my first experience with this style. And maybe my last. Way to tart, sour, and acidic. Maybe this is a good representation of the style, maybe not. Either way it’s not for me. djd07 (15342) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 16, 2015
Bottle. Pours a cloudy red copper with small pinkish head. The aroma is brett, oak, raspberries. Thin mouth with tart raspberry, light oak, funk and brett. Puckering sour finish, really enjoyed this one. Dogbrick (13547) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Sample at the "New Beers Eve - Last Chance 2014 Beers!" tasting on 12/31/2014. Pours a cloudy ruby-amber color with a medium pinkish-white head that dissipates steadily to a film. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of berries, brett and oak. Full-bodied with flavors of tart raspberries, brett yeast and oak. The finish is moderately sour with a berry and oak aftertaste. Pretty good all around. Pennsyltucky (2) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 22, 2014 does not count
Delightfully sour with a hint of raspberry jam. Smells of raspberry with a hint of funk. A mellow beer that flows well from front to back. A little bit of unwanted "rocket fuel" in the finish. A very good beer! rxeight (3223) - Illinois, USA - DEC 21, 2014
2014 large format bottle. Bordering into way too sour. Almost upland like. Very acidic.

Approaching this aged bottle with a bit of trepidition I came away with the experience I expected. Flashes of brilliance often preceded sharp astringent periods. If you’ve got an older bottle then do not sit on it as this beer certainly does not improve with time.
Aroma / Appearance - A thin head quickly collapses into the caramel body that looks like a glass full of melted Twix soaked in carbonated water. Sharp vinegar masks apple cider and raspberry pulp. Oaky aspects try to balance out the other aromas but do not quite get there.
Flavor / Palate - Raspberry jam and apple cider warm the throat before seconds later a blast of intense sourness hammers the tongue. Abrasive vinegar makes it hard to drink more than a little at a time. Unlike La Folie or other intensely sour beers it does not balance itself with any bright fruitiness. It is unlikely that I’ll be grabbing too many more Weyerbacher beers in the future once I finally break the 100 ratings barrier for Pennsylvania because of experiences like this.
Bottle with cork - 2014. Pours hazy and light red. Aroma is raspberry mixed with light Brett. Taste is dry, sharp, berry and very slight Brett. As Brett goes, this has very nice character without the overly funkyness that sometimes you’ll see in a Lambic, but the Brett is there. A very balanced beer, this goes down very quickly. No detectable VA in this one. You get the oak on the nose when it warms up. Alcohol is well hidden. A beautiful beer and worth seeking out. mR_fr0g (13226) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2014
Bottle shared at the RBESG 2014, grand tasting 10/08/2014 Craft Beer Co Clerkenwell. Hazed pinky / orange coloured pour with a halo of light pink head. Aroma is musty tart fruit, funky brett and pineapple. Flavour is composed of cherry fruit, kreik tart. Very clean sharp sour with a nice funky brett edge. Palate is musty with a dry and spicy finish. Very tasty. ExpendableHero (925) - Florida, USA - OCT 31, 2014
Muddy, ruby colored beer with an off-white head. Strong aromas of fresh raspberries and booze. Tastes of loads of raspberries, very tart/bitter fruit notes, and some warming alcohol in the bitter finish. Mouth puckering beer. A bit one dimensional but tasty wild ale nonetheless.

2012 corked and caged bottle. Pours a cloudy red with a fizzy pink head of foam. The aroma is sour raspberries. The taste is mostly acidic with some fruity components. Medium body and medium carbonation.
