Introductory aromas remind me of a nice bottle of red- nothing too punchy or dry. Initial sip is smooth and tart, but does not linger on the taste buds. I could get through a 750ml but not much more than that.

Perfect minimal head for a sour/wild. Poured into an Ommegang tulip. All the tart flavors I would expect and desire right off the bat. A mild champaign like finish, but don't underestimate this beer. It will leave you with a fuzzy palette, not sure if you should move on or enjoy another. I enjoyed another.

Tart but not sour. Very middle of the road and forgettable.

Love this beer. Very nice and tart with raspberries. Nice maroon in color. Aroma of raspberries and tartness. Dry and light on the palate with raspberry and tartness but very drinkable. This one does not kill the taste buds. Very nice beer!
