From 07/27/12 notes. I've actually never had this one and saw it on tap at Rattle n Hum so figured I should try it.

a - Pours a deep, dark pink purple color with one inch of raspberry colored head and moderate carbonation evident. Looks awesome.

s - Smells of a ton of raspberries and dark fruits , lightly sour, sweet fruity malts, yeast, and some light spice. Very nice and very sweet.

t - Tastes of a sour-sweet raspberry overload. Tons of sweet raspberries and other dark fruits, some Belgian yeast, spice, and fruity malts. Kind of like hard raspberry juice.

m - Medium body and low carbonation. Body is super smooth and very easy to drink. Great mouthfeel.

o - Overall I liked this beer a lit. Unlike a lot of sours and Belgian lambics, this one is really not that sour, and is very sweet. Reminds me of sweet raspberry juice that is syrup based. That being said, I still really enjyoed it, and would definitely have it again. If you like sweet fruity beers it is great, but if you're looking for a sour beer this isn't it.

Poured from a small bottle into a proper Lindemans glass. Color is clear and dark reddish-amber with a really fine, tight pinkish-white head that leaves some outstanding lacing on the sides of the glass. The nose has some strong raspberry notes. They hit me hard the moment the cork was out of the bottle. I don't get any funk or barnyard notes as the nose is incredibly sweet - almost like raspberry pancake syrup. I can almost taste it just from the nose.

The mouthfeel is firm and lively from high carbonation and the flavor is super intense. There's a slight wheaty graininess that supports sweet and tart fruity flavors. The sweetness and the tartness are wonderfully balanced, with the sweetness coming out just a bit ahead and lending a bubble-gum like flavor. In the back of the palate, the flavors get a little woody and the tartness starts to take over, leading to a fairly acidic, mouth-drying finish. As the beer warms, the sourness becomes a little more assertive.

I have had this beer a few times over the years and finally got around to reviewing it. It might not appeal to fans of super sour lambics (or people for whom availability equals mediocrity), but I thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a marvelous mid-afternoon treat on a hot Saturday afternoon.
