Thanks to NoSignsOfPain for sharing this one at MrHirschybar's place!

Pours a murky cranberry red with an off-white head that settles to a film on the top of the beer. No lacing on this on. Smell is of lots of sour and funky berry aromas (obviously raspberries are the main thing here). Taste is pretty much the same but raspberries come through as the main fruit flavor. There is an acidic quality in the throat with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with some nice funky and sour berry combos going on.

Ginormous thanks to drabmuh for bringing out this growler. Served in a Bruery tulip. Thanks to Lunch for the assist on the glassware, as all my Bruery tulips have been packed.

Pours a bright reddish-pink color with a good slightly-pink head. A touch of lacing. The nose has plenty of raspberry with a good bit of must and earth. Really nice. Loads of raspberry and a touch of acidity. The flavor is a bit sweeter with lots of raspberry. Almost Koolaid-ish. That's an exaggeration, but it is a sweeter and heavy on the fruit without as much earth and acidity as the nose. Good light body with a nice light acidity to the finish. Really nice beer.

On-tap at the Bruery

A: The beer pours a completely opaque purple-red color with a fizzy pinkish head that is poorly retained.

S: Pure raspberry on the nose. Really, not much else to talk about. The nose is dominated by the sweet fruitiness and maybe there's a bit of raspberry soda. Only a mild sourness.

T: As with the nose, a mild sourness and lemon character that is almost overwhelmed completely by the intense raspberry flavor. There is a bit of grass to it, but it's really a really simple flavor profile. As it warms up, there's a slight acetic note.

M: The body is medium with a medium carbonation.

O: This wasn't bad, it just didn't have much going on with it. If you really like raspberries, it would be great. I was hoping for more sourness.

I'm very surprised that this is not a really high rated beer. Admittedly, the first couple of times I tried this I would have agreed with most of the reviews that are 3.5 to 4. However, just had some on tap at Boneyard Bistro in Sherman Oaks and it just blew me away. I don't know if it's a new batch, I don't know if its a special keg, I don't know anything about the technical aspects of the beer other than it rocked!

Poured a hazy rhubarb dark pink/red with a very fast fading white head. Looks like hazy raspberry soda but was very pretty.

Nose is just all assertive lightly citric/lightly funked sweet raspberries. The nose just makes you want to gulp!

Mouthfeel is light to medium citric/acidic with a light to medium light carbonaation. All in all, and while not a typical brew, it was very well balanced.

Flavors are just plain delicious. Sweet but tart, citric and lightly sour raspberries. I get layers of character despite an initial impression of "simple (albeit delicious) raspberries." Yes, there is a sweet tone and character but it is well balanced with acid, tartness and light sour character.

Finish is lightly acidic and of tart raspberries.

You just want to keep drinking it and, I admit it, you liken it to "an adult soda." But, what a nice thing. Goes very well with food. I drank it with chicken wings and BBQ and it not only tasted good and held it's own but it married really well.

Please Patrick and Tyler....bottle this one!

Why are the reviews for this beer so insanely low? Makes no sense. A perfectly fine fruit beer from the Bruery, well done guys.

Beer poured from a growler into a Bruery tulip, if the world has to come to an end this year at least I'll have the right glassware for the occasion.

Beer is red, dark pink, with a thin white head, low retention, no lacing, moderate to low carbonation.

Aroma is sweet with a mild tartness, fruit all the way baby, huge fruit nose, huge everything.

Beer is light in body, nice finish, a little like raspberry jam, mild tartness on the backend, not dry at all. This is sort of like what Lindemann beers should be like, a really decent beer right here. I'd have it again.

Clearish magenta pour, with a thin pink-white head that pretty much disappeared, leaving little to no lacing behind. Tart raspberry aroma, some distant grassy funk. One-dimensional, but you get what you came for. More raspberry in the taste, not really surprising, moderate tartness, some sweetness, sour candy-ish and almost like a soda, lemon pith, mild grassy funk in the background. Light-medium body, and a thinner mouthfeel, which actually helped the drinkability. Pretty nice overall.

From 02/25/12 notes. Big big thanks to drabmuh for sharing a growler of this, I really liked it.

a - Pours a somewhat hazy dark pink purple color with two inches of fluffy white head and moderate carbonation evident. Looks beautiful, I love sours that have this deep purple-pink color.

s - Smells or sour raspberries, tart dark fruits, brett, oak, fruity malts, some acidity. Lightly funky and sour, but nothing too sour. Awesome nose.

t - Tastes of sour raspberries, sweey fruity malts, sweet and tart dark fruits, oak, acidic, lightly funky. Taste is very nice but a little sweeter then the nose and not quite as sour or funky. Still really like it.

m - Light to medium body and moderate carbonation.

o - Overall I really like this one. It looks amazing and has a really nice sour and funky dark fruity nose. The taste is a little sweeter and reminds me more of raspberry juice, but it is very tasty amd very easy to drink. Felt like I could have drank the whole growler, really hoping they bottle this this year since I'm in the RS.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

On tap at Local Habit in San Diego. The current batch is 7.0% ABV.

Pours a beautiful pink color with a slight mustache of foam. Rather sweet and fruity to staret. Tastes more like a Belgian fruit beer, but sharper and less sylish, somehow. A hint of Hawaiian Punch in the flavors, but that's actually quite nice and the sweet tutti-fruitiness is plenty balanced by the acidity.

This does get quite sour after some sipping. The raspberry flavor lasts to the end. A little woody. Not much aroma. A bitter tang like berry seeds for the aftertaste. Pleasanter than some sours with the clean berry taste, but it's serious stuff to drink.

On-tap at The Bruery itself,

A: Pours a gorgeous pink red, almost Kool-Aid like, punch. But it's cool to see this kind of colour in a beer. Looks a bit like a cosmo. Limited fizzy head.

S: Nice raspberry fruit, hint of lemon and acid.

T: It's raspberries. It's a simple flavour, raspberries and acid, but it certainly works. Delicious flavour, not Raspberry Tart, but very enjoyable.

M: Light-bodied, crisp and very easy drinking. A summertime fruit beer that's enjoyable, clean and true to the fruit.

O: I really enjoyed this; the raspberries are natural, nothing artificial here. Not complex at all, just a tasty drink and there's nothing wrong with that.

On draft at the brewery.

Pours a bright cherry red color with a pinkish half finger head that quickly settles into a thin ring.  Minimal spots of lace left behind.

Tart, slightly funky aroma that's bursting with uber-fresh raspberries.  Slightly earthy but the raspberries really dominate.  Kind of one dimensional but smells pretty good.

Medium bodied with a dry, puckering mouthfeel that lingers throughout into a slightly dry finish.  This beer is bursting with tart raspberry flavor that's really sweet.  Dry but not funky or acidic.  Kind of like a sour New Glarus desert beer. Again, not overly complex but very flavorful.

On-tap at the source itself, on to the beer:

I've had enough raspberry juice in my life to recognize the color. It looks like, well, raspberry juice, with a large soda-like formation of head, though retention is passable. It smells similar to raspberry juice, but not so sweet and more tart.

It tastes like a reasonable raspberry beer, yet I feel like something is missing to take it to the next level. Maybe I was expecting more sweet raspberry flavor and less tartness. The beer has a medium mouthfeel, carbonation is right, and it is refreshing.

I'm more into cranberries than raspberries, so perhaps that's why I prefered Carmen over BeRazzled. Still, BeRazzled commands some respectability.

Growler provided by who else but drabmuh, king of growlers. Thanks Matt!

The beer appears a gorgeous, radiant reddish purple color. The pink head is nearly a half inch at the onset, but quickly diminishes to a thin, broken layer.

The aroma is fabulous, with a huge raspberry presence. Additional scents include a pleasant, funky, barnyard character and a subtle earthy component.

The flavor, while certainly enjoyable, is not up to the level of the aroma. Again, plenty of raspberry presence. This drinks a bit like a fruit juice or spritzer. Funk presence is there but mild. A subtle acetic presence delicately emerges in the back.

Overall, a fine beer I would happily have again.

Cool pink and purple color, looks regal. Nice framboise type aroma.

Rad tartness. This is what I was hoping for w/ NG Raspberry tart, but this one actually lives up to that beers expectations/reputation. This one is actually tart and sour. More tart than framboise de amarosa even. Really straightforward: raspberry fruit, lemon sourness.

Light body with big raspberry and tart mouthfeel. Very easy and enjoyable. After rose de gambrinus, maybe double framboise de amarosa, this beer owes no apologies to anything with raspberries in it.

Enjoyed at Clusterfork #7 in a snifter.

A: Opaque pinkish red with a big pinkish white head. Great color.

S: Aromatic raspberry purée with a sugary sweetness. A light tartness is evident. The fruit smells nice but there's not much else behind it.

T: Lightly sweet raspberry with just a touch of tartness. There's a little graininess, but it's mostly fruit. Finishes dry with a low acetic acidity and some raspberry lingering.

M: Medium body with low carbonation.

Overall: Enjoyable, but simple and mostly fruit. The acetic acidity seems to compound and bothers me after a while.

Big thanks goes out to beermeX2 for sharing this one at the Down South Beer Tasting while aasher was in town to visit! Served from growler into a Mikkeller taster flute. Poured pinkish red with a one finger light pink head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, tart, cranberries, tart cherry, and subtle funk. The flavor was of sweet malt, tart, cranberries, and tart cherry. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a very good brew. I love how the Brett made itself known on the nose, but didn't like how the fruit characters covered it up in the flavor. This one was extremely easy to drink as Al stated below and I could see myself destroying a growler of this with very little problem at all. Really glad I got the chance to try this one and would love to do so again without a doubt.
