Poured a pale yellowish white in color with pale yellow highlights and a very thin head that left hardly any lacing sticking to the glass. Nice fruity aroma upfront on the nose which I believe are from the white raspberries with good acidic character, oaky notes and signs of vanilla. The vanilla character was more apparent on the palate alongside white raspberry fruit, oaky accents, acidic notes, citrus flavors and hints of butter. The brew was medium to light in body with a moderate amount of carbonation which an oaky, acidic, fruity, sweet, and tar buttery finish. Really solid all around and was definitely glad I got to try this brew

Big ups to rathakem for always hooking up the OR beery love. Enjoyed from a block 15 pilsner glass.
2013 vintage

a - beer pours a foggy yet champagne like golden yellow with a thin bubbly head that had some creaminess to it and hung out. Lively carb raced to the surface.

s - nose is dynamite. Eggy white wine and oak. Great fruitiness from the raspberries..floral even but with a great sourness.

t - taste matches the nose. Simply awesome. Golden raspberry, brett, oak, wine, with a wonderful sweet tartness.

m - easy drinker, nice carbonation. Great pucker but far from being overly sour.

o - was fortunate enough to have had the previous vintage of this brew before and loved it so i knew what i was getting into.

Bottle opened on 10.20.12.
Another great bottle thanks to Kelton!

A - Pours a hazy, bright golden orange with a thin white film that turns into a few bubbles on the edges.

S - Fruity, floral, chardonnay, and tart.

T - Rose, fruit and floral, tart and sweet fruits. The label says white raspberries, which I guess is what I am tasting. Very good.

D - Lower carbonation with a lighter body. A tart, Pucker of a finish.

O - Very pleasant, sweet and tart, nicely balanced.

This was an interesting beer for me. Once again, a capped and corked 375ml bottle from Block 15. Once again, I had to laugh, because sealing it that way is so very optimistic for a beer that's not very carbonated. But let's see what this is all about, shall we?

A vigorous pour into a Duvel tulip produces a fairly small, thin head with big, wispy bubbles that clear quickly and leave no lacing. Aside from the chill haze, this looks like a cheap lager.

But it sure doesn't smell like one! I know right away this is going to be tart. There's plenty of funk, a little barnyard, and a hint of raspberry. If I hadn't read the label and known this was brewed with white raspberries, I might have picked out a different fruit.

Once I taste it, there's no question. Sour to a degree that it makes one of my eyes twitch, I can clearly taste raspberries. This is so light and refreshing, so tart...

This is nothing but clean in the mouth. It's lightly carbonated, thin and acidic. There's nothing sweet or sticky to detract from the very satisfying finish.

I enjoyed this beer quite a bit. Kudos to Block 15.

Huge thanks to Rathakem for this Block 15 beer!

375ml bottle with pressure cap and cork; minimal hiss when cork is freed from the bottle.

poured into Block 15 tulip glass.

Appearance: bright yellow bodied beer with a thin cap of fizzy head that drops away really quickly to no head.

Smell: acetic and vinegar greet the nose as the beer is poured you dont even have to put your nose near the beer and those smells are noticeable. Tart berries and maybe some lemon. Slightly sweet smelling wheat malts.

Taste: This beer is on the lower end of moderately tart. Flavors that contribute to the tart flavors includes prodominately a berry medley of raspberries and strawberries with a hint of lemon, rhubarb, and white grapes. The vinegar that was found in the nose of the beer makes its presence know about mid palate and it mingles with a hint of dusty funk. The vinegar continues through to the finish and help to build the tartness of the beer at the end. A hint of wheat malts adds a little balance in the for of a light sweetness that is noticed in the finish.

Mouthfeel: low end of a medium bodied beer with almost, but not quite moderate carbonation levels. Drinkable and refreshing sour beer. The 8% abv is not noticable at all. Dry finish.

Overall: Really enjoyed this beer. Another great sour by Block 15! Its in the middle of the pack when comparing all the sour beers that Block 15 makes. The Golden Raspberries was a unique ingredient to use in this beer. Made a nice and complex sour beer!

Big thanks to Jedwards for the final pre-move blowout cellar crash. Served in an Oerbier stem. Pours a tawny gold with a translucent clarity and no head. Nose expresses raspberries and cotton candy. Taste expresses some faint vinegary notes with the raspberries still present, but hidden in the background. Mouthfeel is light and bright with an easy carbonation and a pleasant, almost creamy acidity. Overall, the nose on this beer is nothing short of spectacular; however, this beer is an incredibly approachable and tasty sour. I'd love to get my hands on more of this beer.
