Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours a murky red with no head. No lacing on the drink down either. Smell is sour and tart with raspberry jam and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with a fruity berry flavor on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with some great fruity aromas and flavors.

Pours a muddy red color with a fleeting white head. The nose is outstanding. Bright, jammy acidic fruit with a ton of raspberry and cherry. The barrel brings a big vanilla note. Similar on the palate, huge juicy fruit flavors with slightly more raspberry than cherry. Nice vanilla and oak notes in the finish. A phenomenal fruit sour.

Huge thanks to ehammond1 for making this happen. Served in a Lost Abbey teku.

Pours a light brown with a mild reddish hue to it. The initial pink-hued head fades pretrty quickly into a thin collar around the edges of the glass.

The nose has some cherry and a bit of raspberry. Neither is nearly as strong as the fruit character from Box Set Track #7. Some additional earthiness in the background. Acidity is mostly lactic with just a very mild touch of acetic.

Flavor is earthy and mildly sour. Quite a bit of cherry skin. Moderate raspberry character underneath. Faint hints of black raspberry. Could use a bit more depth.

Mouthfeel is light-medium with an appropriate amount of acidity and carbonation. Very dry finish. Ever so slight tannins.

Again, very nice, but nothing out of control.

Another huge thanks to Rudzud for splitting this with me, and Alec for letting us get it.

No head, dark mahogany murky reddish color.

Nose loads and loads of raspberry, fresh berry and candied fruit, lots of seed with little tannin, and skin tannin, etc. Mild tartness but lots of fruit. Acidic like sourness and vinous.

Taste very tart, big sour raspberry and general sour berry, tart tannic seed all over, green berry, with nice sour raspberry and acidic bite. Mild sweet malt but on the drier side, and acidic sour lactic bite. Finish is sour with mild sticky tartness, bitter tannic note, tart raspberry fruit, etc.

Mouth med to thinner bod, decent carb, big acidic bite.

Overall ok but not amazing.

12.7 brown caged and corked bottle, no freshness date.

Muddled rusty burgundy hue, no head ... not much for lace either. Strawberries, raspberries, raw honey, tart, musty, parsnips, and funk make for a pretty complex and at least interesting nose. Very sour, both raspberry and cherry are present. Lots of fresh oak, estery, faint cracker maltiness, slightly sweet and very sour. Wood dryness envelopes the finish.

Love it or hate it aspects to this brew, smell and taste ... I am all for it. Look and feel, not much of a fan. Very lambic-like. Each sip is a bit more fun to take on.

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Murky red. Decent off-white head. Nice collar and wispy surface.

Smell - Tons of raspberry. Cherry is secondary. Musty and acidic.

Taste - So much raspberry. Cherry is still secondary. Musty and jammy. Very tart. Oaky finish.

Mouthfeel - Strong, clean sourness. Well carbonated and dry.

Overall - Excellent. More raspberry than Framboise de Amorosa from what I remember.

Lost Abbey track beer tasting.

Very excited to try this one, as I am a big fan of both beers used in this blend.

The beer appears lavender hued with an oily beige head. The beer smells fantastic! Raspberries and Lost Abbey funk. A nice blend of the two beers, with the Framboise playing the lead role. Sufficient tartness in the finish, with a lingering assortment of berries. Nice feel. Effervescent and tangy with spritzy carbonation. A dem fine beer, I say.

375ml cork and caged bottle poured into a matching Lost Abbey teku. The brew appears a muddy dark chestnut color with a head that fades pretty quick.

This smells fruity with raspberry and cherry immediately noticeable than some supporting earthen qualities and wild bacterial sourness.

The taste is tart with raspberry seeds, earthen and gets more sour with a hint of natural sour cherry flavoring. As more sips are taken, it gets progressively more intense but not in an enjoyable way.

This is medium in body with low carbonation. It is very sour, seemingly too sour just for the sakw of being sour. Fortunately the raspberry flavors are pretty firm in this. As I drink more, it seems quite similar to track 7 except more raspberry kick and no turpentine added. Final thoughts are that this is not that good, especially for the price.

Thanks to Todd for another .rar tick!

A - Quick-dissolving white foam settles to a partial collar, a few wisps, and no lace. Hazy dark red-brown body.

S - Big raspberry aroma, with a mild malt sweetness to it as well. Light oak and lactic sourness in the periphery, but quite tame. More jammy and funky than tart here.

T - The taste has a bit more of the Red Poppy tartness, and sheds a bit of the raspberry preserve sweetness of Framboise de Amorosa. I actually appreciate the balance here, as the oak and lactic acidity enhance the depth.

M - Smooth, medium body, with a tannic and dry finish. Some mild alcohol warming, which was a surprise, although I suppose it could have been from the mounting acidity in my digestive tract as well.

D - I liked this one. It's about 70-30 in favor of Framboise de Amorosa, but the acidity from the Red Poppy serves as a nice study in balance and contrast. I'd drink this one again, although I think you could get pretty close by blending the two beers yourself.

A: lots of color into the glass mostly a brown with reddish hues and dark crimson highlights that had a nice frothy half finger of head that left good lacing sticking to the glass.

S: wonderful fruity bouquet upfront in the aroma filled with fresh raspberries, cherries, and strawberry notes, but with nice bretty funk, some acidic character, oakiness showing it face and vinous wine barrel notes.

T: like the nose it had a very delicious fruit forward tart cherry raspberry flavor bursting through on the first sip alongside great oaky accents, vinous wine barrel character which added some dimension and some acidic notes.

M: the brew was medium in body with a good amount of carbonation which had a fruity, oaky, mild acidic, vinous sour and slight dry finish.

O: definitely one of my favorite from the box set and well balanced all around. Glad I got to try this sour fruit bomb.
