Bottle shared at the epic sour sourpuss tasting (thanks to trade with gEUS). Pours a murky red brown with a small pinkish head. Massive raspberries coming straight out in the aroma along with barnyard. I don’t just mean barnyard like a lot of sours have barnyard, I mean absolutely full on, I really am down the farm (with raspberries) barnyard. Manure, hay, jam, earth, horse blanket. Flavor is light to moderate sweet and moderate acidic. Some lemon citrus aspects lingering in the palate in the long dry finish. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Yes this is excellent. Really good.

Bottle poured into a wine stem. Enjoyed 12/7/2013.

Pour is a deep magenta with a wispy pink head, which recedes to a rim. Some effervescence. Smell is bright, juicy raspberries, cobwebs and funky blue cheese. Quite jammy. Huge raspberry profile carries over to the taste, with an additional increase in the level of cheesy funk. Quite sour. A bit of lactic creaminess, and a touch of oak on the finish. Very drinkable, despite being more sour than I expected. A top notch lambic for sure, but I think some additional time will do this well.

Bottle courtesy of the ever gracious HenrikO. A million thanks for the trade over the past summer.

Shared with family and friends to celebrate my MBA graduation.

When opened, the bottle could be smelled from 3 feet away. Just super fresh and funky raspberries. Pours a mostly clear purple/dark red. Great looking beer. The head is minimal, but there is some carbonation in there.

Smell is the best aroma on Any beer I've ever experienced. Jammy is the right descriptor, with a bit of butteriness that fits just right with the berries. This is seriously like smelling a handful of macerated berries, just glorious. Funk level is very high, with some oakiness and cheese lingering. Acidity is there, but not overbearing. Just wonderful. I wish I could rate this as a 6 in the smell department.

Taste follows the nose, but the cheese and funk is very prominent. The jammy raspberries are akin to eating the freshest and best raspberries you can imagine, only concentrated. The funk level is extreme as it warms, but I like it. Some in the group thought this was a detraction, but I'm not sure I agree.

Mouthfeel is full, with just the right amount of moderate carbonation. Not too prickly, but just enough to keep the liquid dancing on the tongue. Great

Overall, this is probably the best beer I've ever had. Completely lived up to the hype, and then some. Would love to see how it is doing in another 5 years, as I believe it has legs, but I doubt I will ever cross paths with this one again. Seek this out.

Bottle shared in NH. Pours rich purple with a creamy, light pink head. Heavy tart raspberry nose. Flavor is well and tart, with deep raspberry, faint funk, light dryness, hints of wood and grass, a few earthy touches. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Good, biting sour finish, a bit of funk, rich raspberry notes. Superb, delicious beer. Extremely refreshing.
