on tap at Mohawk Bend, and it's been around LA a lot lately, which makes me think there's either a new batch or they saved a bunch for Valentine's Day...

A - bright, light red, almost pink with a small off white head that disappears quickly and leaves little trace. Love that color. Tiny bubbles constantly stream towards the top of the glass.

S - fresh raspberries up front, but I'd say the dominant smell is tartness and a bit of acidity.

T - The best word to describe this flavor is bright. The raspberries really jump out, and then there's a nice hit of sourness and acidity. It sounds one-dimensional, and it might be a little too much like a raspberry juice squeeze for some, but I loved it. Really great flavor.

M - lots of carbonation leaves it feeling prickly on the tongue, and overall. Very crisp and refreshing.

O - yet another awesome beer from the Bruery, and I especially admire their sour program. I'd put this up there with the likes of MA and ISO:FT, though definitely in a different sort of sour category. In fact, I think this is a pretty good approximation of a poor man's Rose de Gambrinus. Certainly it's no Cantiloon, but it's great all the same.

BeRazzeled had on tap @ Provisions

Look: Cranberry red in color with a 1/8 inch white head that settles to a 1/8 inch collar

Smell: Tart raspberries and a bit of funk

Taste: Tart and sour raspberries not much else

Mouthfeel: Thin body and fair carbonation tart and dry finish

Overall: Not bad I guess but I will not be having this again

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!

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.

Pours a vibrant reddish pink. I imagine that this is what a bottle of rosé would look like if you reduced it.

Tart and refreshing aroma.

Raspberries are more complimentary to the style than they are dominating. Slightly tart.

Delicate, effervescent.

I could definitely knock back a few of these.

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.

On tap at the source.

So imagine how good liefman's raspberry lambic sounded before you actually tasted it. Well what if it actually tasted as good as you had imagined? If you're sick of imagining get yourself some of this. Super balanced. Great tartness cut by a delicious raspberry sweetness.

Seriously so good. I hope The Bruery decides to bottle this some day.

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.
