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.

Pours an almost-clear, pinkish red color with a small, baby-pink head that disappears quickly. Scent is strong raspberries...a TON of raspberries. A hint of red apple as well. Smells slightly acidic. Taste is not as tart as I was expecting, but it's damn good. A bunch of tart cherries and raspberries. Slightly acidic with the tiniest hint of red wine. Mouthfeel is light and very bubbly. Drinkability is high. Overall, a very good beer to gateway people into sours.

Poured from a growler during the South Carolina tasting. It pours a very nice and lightly cloudy strawberry red in color with a light frothy head around the glass. It smells of sweet and tart raspberries and is very fresh. It's definitely on the drier side. You also get a good amount of brett. It drinks very light and dry with a nice effervescence. The berry is both sweet and tart and its pretty complex. It's very drinkable despite the amount of brett present. I could drink a lot of this. Very nice beer. It was a pleasure to try it.

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.

On tap at Provisions

A: Light ruby color with a thin pink head.

S: Huge, perfume-like raspberry and cranberry aroma. Unbelievable.

T: Huge flavors of raspberries, cranberries and red currants with a slight kiss of brett. Light mouthfeel works well with the flavors. I loved this beer. Could definitely drink this all day. I wouldn't say this was as good as Rose de Gambrinus, but this is easily one of the best fruit beers I've ever had.

Woodshop Classix
Anaheim, CA

Deep ruby and pink with a thin, bubbling light pink head. Dots of lacing down the glass.

Bright, ripe raspberries and a slight tartness to sting the nose but mainly just smells like blended raspberries, which do happen to smell nice.

Sweet, ripe raspberries dominate the flavor, along with a mild tartness, some other bright citrus hint, but never fully appear. A delicious, carbonated, raspberry drink.

Thin to medium mouthfeel, though I wish it was more carbonated.

A delicious raspberry wild, though I wish it had more tartness to balance against the fresh raspberry flavors.

A: Bright raspberry red body. Nice off-white head leaving behind solid lacing.

S: Sweet raspberries dominate with hints of generic citric notes (lemon mostly).

T: Again raspberry dominates with some lemon and oak. Simple, not particularly interesting or well played out.

M: Thin, watery, slightly soapy feel. Medium carbonation. Refreshing, though.

O: A raspberry lawnmover beer. Sitting outside this might be nice with a drink with a mini-umbrella in it.

A - Served a slightly cloudy raspberry red color with a finger of fizzy reddish head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some nice lacing.

S - The aroma is full of sweet and tart raspberries. There is a bit of other citrus fruit mixed in teh background with a touch of bready malts.

T - Starts off with lots of sweet and slightly acidic raspberry flavor, with some slight sour and tart elements. Through the middle, the sharpness mellows a bit and some orange, lemon, and oak come through with a bit of bready malt as well. The finish is a mix of sweet and tart raspberry flavors with a bit of acidity that lingers.

M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. It felt very smooth and just a bit syrupy in the mouth. Nice blend of sweet, tart, and acidity.

D - Very drinkable. Really liked the strong raspberry flavor and it felt and tasted very fresh. The tartness and acidity were at great levels.

A: poured a vibrant reddish on color with a thin pinkish head and left a little lacing sticking to the glass.

S: the aromas was mostly raspberries with hints of citrus and a little oak character was coming through as well.

T: pretty much was a raspberry banger on the palate with a citrus and oaky accents but with a mild tart bite in the backend.

M: the brew was medium in body with a moderate amount of carbonation which had a sweet, fruity, mild oaky, citrusy, and tart finish.

D: it was drinking really good but thought it could have been a little bit more sour. Still was a decent american wild

Screw all these naysayers. Alcoholic, carbonated raspberry puree FTW!

Pours reddish pink with a big pinkish foam head. Surprisingly bubbly.

Smells overwhelmingly redolent of raspberries. Like getting hit with a raspberry sledge hammer. Faint wisps of acidic lemon ... oak?

Taste is a bit more balanced with ... oh, who am I kidding. It's a raspberry assault with a surprisingly amount of dry, wood-sy/lemon-y sourness balancing the crazy fruit-forward flavor. I'd be interested to see what happened to this with a few years on it, but sadly no bottles to be had.

Wish I'd bought two growlers of it. Great effervescent mouthfeel.

Clusterfork #7

A - Hazy bright pinkish colored with a short lived, fizzy white head.

S - Sweet raspberries up front, slight tartness in the nose, with a slightly sweet bready malt aroma.

F/M - Sweet bready malts mixed with a pleasant, but a little lighter than I expected, fresh raspberry flavor. Tartness is light, but noticeable and adds a bit of complexity to an otherwise simple beer. Light esters mix with the fruits to add a little more fruity flavor. Nice dry finish with a medium light body and moderately high carbonation.

O - A pretty nice, refreshing fruity beer. Plenty of fruit flavors, but otherwise simple and easy to enjoy. Pretty much like a light Belgian wit beer with a huge dose of fresh raspberry flavor.

Draft to goblet

Clusterfork7

App- A nice mix of purples and pinks. A bit like juice in the glass. Poured with a good one finger head to it.

Smell- Raspberries open this one immediately and then a small tart aciditic note comes in. Was a bit tamed for what I was expecting but very nice aromatics

Taste- A light mix of tart fruit notes with a ton of raspberry notes. A little tart and a little funk but not too much.

Mouth- A very nice little wild with a light/medium body and a carbonation to match.

Drink- This started the day off with a lot to look forward to in the wild/sour/fruit beer with St. Lam, Blushing Monk and Framboozled all coming out and this held its own.

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.

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

Appearance: Cloudy medium purplish-pink color. Fairly thin light pink head that quickly faded. Nice looking beer.

Smell: Barnyard funk and raspberry.

Taste: Tart raspberry, slight funk and mild acetic notes. i thought it was good tasting but i prefer a bit more sour.

Mouth-feel: Medium body with a fair level of carbonation.

Overall: I like this beer but it's a step behind my favorite of the Raspberry wild ales (Framboise De Amorosa). I wouldn't mind a bit more sour but this is a tasty refreshing summer beer

Reviewed less than 24 hours after growler filled at Bruery and kept cool upon filling until reviewed.

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.

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.
