Shared with JLindros, poured into a Kate the Great tulip.
A - Poured a light hazy peachy orange with reddish tint hue with a thin white blanket that left a thin halo and wisps.
S - Aromas of legit Belgian wit beer, great Belgian spice notes, super faint red wine notes here which I was not expecting, raspberry is faint to, much fainter than I thought it would be, light musty cellar as well.
T - Taste is nice and sour, not overpowering, more nice wit notes and Belgian spices, the red wine is faint, more musty cellar, slight raspberry seed, not much raspberry flesh. Raspberry is much fainter than I would have liked. Hmmmm
M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, drinkable, light on the tongue.
O - Overall I was surprisingly underwhelmed by this beer, can't believe how mediocre this is. veryi unfortunate.

Thanks to crusianbeer for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a light yellow color with a white head. The aroma is full of wheat with a little bit of tartness mixed in. I also get a little bit of lemon in the aroma but it is fairly faint.
The flavor is a little more complex. I get some tart wheat and lemons, as well as a little bit of orange. There is a slight acidic note in the flavor. The beer is refreshing and easy to drink.
Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not a bad beer by any means, but I wanted a little bit more out of this beer. Not sure where the raspberries were, but I don't think they were in our bottle.

Highly carbonated, golden color with a quickly forming, though quickly fading near-white head. This doesn't leave much in the way of stick down the glass. Appropriate.
The aroma is quite sour/tart, with some definite raspberry sweetness, along with some cherry and wood notes. Complete, bright, expressive, and incredibly enjoyable.
The flavor does not disappoint after such a nice aroma. The big lactic sour notes are strong, with complementary flavors of raspberry and oak. Clean, bright flavors.
Medium bodied with high carbonation. Very appropriate for the style.
This is just as good, if not better, than I was hoping for!

Thanks to jmoore50 for bringing this to the March Madness tasting party, it was my favorite beer not named Pliny the whole week. Awesomely timed opening for the Marquette drubbing of Xavier.
A cool looking peach and light pink appearance, white head to it, great carbonation. Maybe my senses were overloaded, but the aroma left me questioning whether I was going to be all about this. Certainly sour, but there were some off kilter spice aroma that left me guessing.
Taste, simply put, every sip was better and more sour than the last. A medley of fruit tastes came about from this one. Maybe peach, strawberry, something to give it the pinkish appearance. Puckering. Probably my favorite soured beer, definitely favorite witbier (although the taste is anything but witbierish).
