750 mL bottle. Aggressive pour yields a murky deep red body with a few bubbles, but no head. Smells of raspberry. Maybe some cherry? A little bit of sweet caramel. Smells very acidic. Green apples. And definitely some oxidation. Tastes of sour green apples, raspberry, and just a hint of cherry. The cherry is a little sweet. Oxidation behind the sourness, but not excessive. Completely flat. It's well past its prime, but it has some redeeming qualities still.

750 ml bottle generously shared by ipa247. Big thanks to Jeff for opening up this rarity. Pours a cloudy amber with almost no head. The aroma is sweet raspberry, a bit of cherry, some funky mustiness, and a hint of honey. The taste is quite tart with some sweetness. Lots of raspberries, smarties, and some cherry. The finish is tart and acidic with more raspberries and a bit of astringency. Medium body. This was very sour, but very drinkable for how sour it was. Quite nice.

Thanks for sharing, ipa247! Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a murky ruddy brown tea color with a short-lived head that disappeared into nothing.
S: Acidic raspberry all the way. I get hints of citrus and maybe some other fruits, but raspberries definitely dominate.
T: Extremely acidic with dominant flavors of raspberries just like the nose, including both fresh fruit and preserves. Lingering sourness in the finish, puckering aftertaste.
M: Acidic but not harsh, some acetone, medium body, smooth mouth for how acidic it is.
O: This rivals some of the great Belgian framboises. Perhaps my favorite Veritas I’ve had to date. Thanks for your generosity Jeff.
