Track #5. 12.7oz bottle. No date.

Look: Murky brown, no head

Smell: Raspberries, strawberry preserves, estery, musty, oaky

Taste: Tart attack, raspberries, sour cherries, okay, tannic, lemony, fruity, jammy, pithy, earth, hay, bone dry

Very fruited Lambic-like. Aroma and flavor are solid. Not much to look at and it lacks effervescence, but I dig it.

12.7 brown caged and corked bottle, no freshness date.

Muddled rusty burgundy hue, no head ... not much for lace either. Strawberries, raspberries, raw honey, tart, musty, parsnips, and funk make for a pretty complex and at least interesting nose. Very sour, both raspberry and cherry are present. Lots of fresh oak, estery, faint cracker maltiness, slightly sweet and very sour. Wood dryness envelopes the finish.

Love it or hate it aspects to this brew, smell and taste ... I am all for it. Look and feel, not much of a fan. Very lambic-like. Each sip is a bit more fun to take on.

12 oz bottle.

Pours a muddy ruby brown with a transient like pink head. Nose is fruity and lactic acidic with some seedy raspberry and tart cherry. Fruit is mild and earthy. Flavor is less fruity than the nose, with a strong earthy and chocolate malt like background under light acidity and earthy fruit seeds and skin. Medium light body with low carbonation, pleasantly sour in the finish but not too intense. Sufficient.

Huge thanks to ehammond1 for making this happen. Served in a Lost Abbey teku.

Pours a light brown with a mild reddish hue to it. The initial pink-hued head fades pretrty quickly into a thin collar around the edges of the glass.

The nose has some cherry and a bit of raspberry. Neither is nearly as strong as the fruit character from Box Set Track #7. Some additional earthiness in the background. Acidity is mostly lactic with just a very mild touch of acetic.

Flavor is earthy and mildly sour. Quite a bit of cherry skin. Moderate raspberry character underneath. Faint hints of black raspberry. Could use a bit more depth.

Mouthfeel is light-medium with an appropriate amount of acidity and carbonation. Very dry finish. Ever so slight tannins.

Again, very nice, but nothing out of control.

Thanks to Todd for another .rar tick!

A - Quick-dissolving white foam settles to a partial collar, a few wisps, and no lace. Hazy dark red-brown body.

S - Big raspberry aroma, with a mild malt sweetness to it as well. Light oak and lactic sourness in the periphery, but quite tame. More jammy and funky than tart here.

T - The taste has a bit more of the Red Poppy tartness, and sheds a bit of the raspberry preserve sweetness of Framboise de Amorosa. I actually appreciate the balance here, as the oak and lactic acidity enhance the depth.

M - Smooth, medium body, with a tannic and dry finish. Some mild alcohol warming, which was a surprise, although I suppose it could have been from the mounting acidity in my digestive tract as well.

D - I liked this one. It's about 70-30 in favor of Framboise de Amorosa, but the acidity from the Red Poppy serves as a nice study in balance and contrast. I'd drink this one again, although I think you could get pretty close by blending the two beers yourself.

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Murky red. Decent off-white head. Nice collar and wispy surface.

Smell - Tons of raspberry. Cherry is secondary. Musty and acidic.

Taste - So much raspberry. Cherry is still secondary. Musty and jammy. Very tart. Oaky finish.

Mouthfeel - Strong, clean sourness. Well carbonated and dry.

Overall - Excellent. More raspberry than Framboise de Amorosa from what I remember.

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours a murky red with no head. No lacing on the drink down either. Smell is sour and tart with raspberry jam and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with a fruity berry flavor on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with some great fruity aromas and flavors.
