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.

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.

Draft at Monk's Cafe in Philadelphia, PA.
Pours a very hazy and dark blood red color with purple/plum hues and a two finger, light pink head that slowly settles into a thin ring. Streaks of lace left behind.
Funky aroma with a nice lactic presence along with dry toasted oak and a blast of luscious berries. Very fruit forward with jammy raspberry, currant and other vinous fruits. Funky bugs/barnyard character counter the fruit sweetness and there's a subtle acetic character as well.
Fuller bodied than expected and really complex with lots of musty bugs, earthy oak, lactic funk and vinous dark berries. Luscious raspberry bursting forth making it seedy and jammy along with some chery and currant. Dry with nice acidity and lactic funk. Subtle acetone quality but not harshly solvent or over the top. Really complex and insanely drinkable. Very impressive.

Pours a muddy red color with a fleeting white head. The nose is outstanding. Bright, jammy acidic fruit with a ton of raspberry and cherry. The barrel brings a big vanilla note. Similar on the palate, huge juicy fruit flavors with slightly more raspberry than cherry. Nice vanilla and oak notes in the finish. A phenomenal fruit sour.

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.
