Reddish liquid, white/pink head diminishing to a ring.
Nose is very raspberry forward, jam. Woahhh Amazing! I literally can't stop smelling it.
Like a sweet raspberry dessert, a bit of cherry getting in the way.
Mouthfull of fruity tartness, it is awesome, raspberry a lot!

From the bottle into correct glassware at 't Brugs Beertje.

Pours a deep red with soft, fine foam.

Smell is massive, with a pillow of raspberries hoding a few cherries on top. Tart and clean.

Taste is even better than the smell. A rich, deep flavor of raspberries is augmented slightly by some cherries and a tiny bit of almond. Very sour, very complex and just amazing!

Mouthfeel is thin and prickly.

Overall, an outstanding fruited sour. Worth every penny!

Poured from bottle at the Brussels Beer Fest. Pours a pinkish color. Nose is sour, funk, and citrus. Taste is sweet, and sour cherries. Somewhat mouth puckering, with lemon. A bit funky for sure. Mouthfeel is medium and sticky. Overall, a really nice beer.

750ml cork and cage bottle poured into a snifter

A- pours a deep ruby color with a small foamy off-white head head that leaves some bubbles behind floating on top

S- smells of freshly pressed raspberries and cherries, along with some barnyard funk elements; dried hay, horse blanket, earth

T- semi-dry up front followed by a bit hit of raspberries and tart cherry. Mid-palate gives notes of dried hay, earthy and some musty notes. The finish is dry with flavors of drier hay, yeast funk and more berries

M- medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a slightly foamy mouthfeel and a dry tart finish

O- awesome mix of berries and funk
