Nice smooth pop upon moving the frozen cork...

Killer crisp clarity in a deep red/pink brew. 1/2 finger soapy/foam head rises very slowly and is damn snappy. No lacing, but fantastic legs.

Great berry nose. Tons of hearty, fresh, and ripe fruit. Acid doesn't show in the nose. No farm funk or anything off. Quite floral, almost rosy. Raspberry is wonderfully released upon irritation.

The flavors and mouthfeel are truly amazing...well-blended, tart, floral, light, crisp, airy, clear, bright... It's crazy the variation from aroma to flavor. Aroma packs a serious fruit punch and flavors are a serious tart, robust, round, wallop to the senses. Flavors are full of ripe berry, green apple, tart cherry, chewy dry blackberry burred in deep tart raspberry rind. Hardly any unfermented sugars. Carbonation is forward and super full, fitting. Drinkability is simply amazing; ends crisp and refreshing drawing you to your next sip.

This has to be close to the pinnacle of sour beer. Smooth, well rounded, nicely blended, and thought-out. Not a sugar bomb. This beer simply kicks ass. I could not recommend high enough. It's a must try for any connoisseur, seek out.

Thanks for sharing Jeff!

A: Pours a cranberry juice red that's fairly flat looking. Very faint minimal head. Damn near flat.
S: Super fruity notes of raspberry puree and mild funk. Strong notes of raspberry jam dominates.
T: Very tart and dry notes of raspberries and biting acid. Extremely fruity and musty, slightly tannic, with flavors of smashed raspberries through and through. Solid tartness with a musty finish. Tart raspberry preserves linger in the aftertaste.
M: Drying and tannic mouthfeel, low carbonation, with a good dose of biting acid that is still fairly smooth and definitely drinkable. Works well.
O: Super flavorful and smooth. Not crazy complicated, but one of the best raspberry berry flavors out there. Very good, thanks again ipa247.

Reviewing the infamous Southampton Black Raspberry Lambic from the Southampton Publick House out of Southampton, New York.

Score: 98

2012 vintage bottle served in a snifter and enjoyed on 04/25/14. Review is from iPhone notes.

Appearance: Pours a murky, brownish dark raspberry color. Minimal head off the pour. Minimal lacing and retention. Nice color, however. 4.5/5

Smell: Lightly musty raspberry jam with a kiss of lacto. Simplistic, but effective and appetizing. 4.75/5

Taste: Tart and dry raspberry jam with a kiss of lacto, just like the nose. Has a high quality mineral water character to it a la Cantillon and Drie Fonteinen sours. Lasting raspberry finish. Really nice. 5/5

Mouthfeel: Light-plus bodied, great carbonation. Very dry finish. 5/5

Overall: A superior American wild ale on par with the likes of New Glarus R&D Very Sour Blackberry and Perennial Blueberry Flanders. Definitely a top three overall beer at our pre-Dark Lord Day 2014 whales tasting, which featured many heavy hitters. This beer is a perfect example of how sometimes less can be more.

Cost: $15 for a 750 ml bottle.

This poured out as a deep purple color with a pink fizzy head. The foam settles quickly. The smell of the beer is very Fruity, the black raspberry aroma is awesome. The taste of the beer is tart and jammy, very juicy yet finishes dry. Overall the beer is excellent. I doubt I'll ever see or have it again due to its rarity. However, I really enjoyed it.

Thanks to Jon2465 for sending a bottle my way. This was my top want for a long time.

A- Pours a gorgeous slightly hazy purple with no head.

S- A very inviting aroma with notes of ripe blackberries, yogurt, hint of cheese, musty funk, barnyard, red grapes and oak.

T- Extremely jammy with fresh blackberry jam standing out that is not overly sweet nor tart. The blackberry flavor is so authentic, I feel like there are seeds somewhere in this beer. Lemon yogurt, musty funk, oak, and red grapes at the end.

M- Medium mouthfeel with a low carbonation. Really nice finish with the blackberry tartness and funk lingering .

O- Well damn, this is a fantastic beer. Certainly one of the best US fruit lambics and one of the most memorable beers I've had recently. Incredibly balanced and complex. I sipped on my pour for over an hour.
