Pretty bottle and it pours a murky guava hue with a frothy two finger head that doesn't stay for long and leaves some subtle tight sporadic lacing,the smell is raspberries,vinegar,funky feet and sour cherry,the mouthfeel is medium bodied,a touch rough and overcarbonated and I know it's raspberries but I get sour cherry and lots of it first up followed by funky white wine and vinegar finished with a über sour raspberry tartness and overall I was abit let down with this and it def needs some age on it cheers.

On-tap. Wine glass. Enjoyed on agt´12. Dark pink color, chill haze appearance. Pinky froth creates a copious, rocky & lasting crown. Aromas of toasted malts, molasses & fresh acidic/sour berries. Gentle malty upfront overwhelmed by strong acidic touch. Light body. Moderate to low carbonation. Oily texture. Tartaric/acidic apples & pears in the middle. Low sugary & fruity finish lingers into the aftertaste. Worth to try !!

375ml green bottle shared with wishuwerebeer. Poured into a cervoise, this brew appears a hazed ruby color. A creamy pink stained head appears across the top 2 fingers strong. The cap recedes to a thin lace across the top with spotty and leggy patches of lacework on the glass.

The initial aroma of this beer is peculiar. It smells very reminiscent of pickled red beat eggs... I can't say it smells that appetizing, but I have smelled worse. The smell of this brew opens up and evolves into raspberry, very natural with a scent that is somewhat over-ripe in nature and earthy. As the glass is swirled, notes of sulfur and diaper shit come out of the glass.

The taste is lightly medicinal to herbal with lots of tangy raspberry flavor. There is a light touch of citrus included. Mikkeller hit the nail on the head with this one and got it to be quite sour, it makes your mouth salivate... or maybe my mouth is just watering because I am about to puke, I cant tell the difference at this point. Faint indications of grass, earth, sulfur, cheese and rotten raspberries all come together in the flavor of this brew to make it quite tangy. The finish is quite bitter with faint indications of cardboard.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest level of carbonation. There is seemingly no indication of the alcohol in this brew. It is drinkable but a bit of a mess that never quite comes together to be an enjoyable brew. There are just a bunch of things about this experience that are off-putting. Worth a try? Absolutely. Something I would have again? Probably not. A 375ml bottle split between 2 people was more than enough.
