Thanks to rudzud for sharing.

Small fizzy head notes, hint if lacing that fades quickly, slight pinkish golden straw color.

Nose is exploding with raspberries and tart Brett funk, big raspberry out front, with nice Brett funk and lots of nice lacto funk. Flash of strawberry, over ripe seedy soaked into the earthy strawberry, very bright fruit and sour funk, lots of seed and stem tannins, with a faint touch of oaky barrel. Light acetic acid with all the great funk.

Taste is again loaded with fresh raspberry, fresh fruity and seed stem tannin notes, etc. Into big barrel, vanilla toasted oak in the front this time. Nice sour lacto as well, acetic acid, tart fruit, and even a mild Brett funk with lambic style sourness. Mild vinous notes, tart fruit, etc. Finish is sticky little flemmy tart sour fruit feel, mild dried lactose feel too, long lingering tart fruit and fresh raspberry.

Mouth lighter bod but not bad, decent but lighter carb.

Overall awesome and fantastic!

Light, crisp, raspberry and tart, a touch of perfume in the finish.

Shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice light hazy pink straw hue with a thin head that faded to leave a light halo and thin wisps.

S - Aromas of raspberries, brett, sour tartness, great awesome lacto notes, earthy over route strawberry, great brett, awesome raspberry seed. Killer nose, not a fruity raspberry but still on the plant.

T - Taste is nicely tart raspberry, great oaky vanilla. Faint malts, More awesome brett, funk, faint smartie candy notes, really awesome lacto. Lambicus acid, missing that nice raspberry stem and seed that the nose had. Still, this is delicious.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, clean, typical for the style.

O - Overall this was pretty freakin awesome beer, great raspberry notes and awesome funk and lacto, incredibly.

A: The rose pink of a rosé wine. Crisp, sparkling, with no head.

S: Raspberries, vinegar, oak, green apples, and grapes.

T: The tartness dominates, eventually dissipating into an aftertaste of raspberries and oaky chardonnay.

M: Puckering and crisp.

O: One of the best sour blonds I've had. Although the tartness overpowers all other flavors at first, the aftertaste is pleasant and well balanced.
