2013 cork with 2010 sticker served at 55 degrees and poured into Hill Farmstead stem

Appearance is deep pinkish ruby red with pencil thin white head. Head dissipates quickly and the aroma of fresh raspberry immediately takes over. Taste is like fresh squeezed raspberry, not overly sweet with nice dry, sour finish . There is also a nice complex funk throughout. Mouthfeel is near perfect with slight carbonation.

Overall this beer is really remarkable and did not disappoint. I've had a few batches of Atrial, Lolita, Rosé De Gambrinus, Upland, etc which are all great but the complex layers of this beer really shine and push it slightly above the other raspberry sours. Definitely seek this out.

overall rating: 4.75

Burg shared this gem with everyone at the Swamp Head Batch 600 release. A huge want of mine. Thanks man! 2010 Sticker on this one pours bright red with a mostly white with a pink hued read on top. Aroma of barnyard funk, yeast, hay, dust, and big juicy raspberries. Flavor follows just the same with lots of dusty barnyard funk and plenty of juicy raspberries. Dry oaky finish. Body is light, pretty dry on the finish, and has medium plus carbonation. Oh yea. This is good. Glad I finally got to try it.

2011 at Moeder Lambic split with a fellow Murican I met.

Clear red and a persistent light pink tinged head.

Big ol' raspberry on the nose. Funky grassy and musty with some citric quality.

Light and tart on the tongue. Big delicious juicy raspberry on the flavor as is to be expected with this series. Musty funk. Finishes dry.

God this was great.
