Bottle from hoppypocket for CanBIF Fall 2013. Bottled 05/2013.

A - Reddish/pink colour. Bright with intense carbonation that fades to slow later. One finger white head gone fast. For the style, the appearance is OK, just not all that great in general.

S - Raspberries, raspberry juice, sugar, some tartness.

T - Raspberry, some tartness. Lot's of raspberry stuff going on. Tartness is definitely there but it doesn't get too complex. Quite nice though, and fairly tart.

M - Tart raspberry finish. Fairly strong carbonation, medium body.

O/D - Guess what? This is a sour wheat beer brewed with raspberries. Just like the bottle says! This was pretty decent. Can't say it was worthy of the hype and my expectations, but not too shabby at all and seemingly well put together. One and done for me though.

Okay, I don't know where to start with this beer! Can I say a beer? Or maybe some fruit alcoholic juice, this is a weird freaky beer, not for my tastes but very interesting and fun too.

Appearance, is bright red, like you would have a strawberry juice, very nice color. The head dissapeard very quicky, too quicky as the white of the head and the bright red of the beer were beautiful when teamed together.

Smells like cherry, not too strong, not to shy, a balanced smell.

Taste, oh my, here we go... SOUR, VERY SOUR! The first sip I can assure you, you will go funny faces. It very acid and sour, reminding me of some gueuze/lambic /fruit. Then, you get curious and the taste get better.

It is quite an experience to try

Bottle: Poured a light pinkish color beer with a large pure white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of tart raspberries with some light brett notes. Taste is also a mix between some tart notes with fresh raspberries and light residual sugar. Body is about average with good carbonation. Well brewed with right mix between fresh raspberries, tart and funky notes. I wish this would be available on a more regular basis.
