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.

A big thanks to Dan the man for this one. 12oz. bottle into Hill Farmstead stemware. Shared with schen9303.

Pours a foamy light pink colored head with poor retention. Beer is a clear, bright red. No lace. Average but a really stunning color.

Nose is a big burst of raspberry puree and seed with just the slightest touch of sweet yeast in the back. Enticing and very aromatic.

Opens seedy, sweet and tart raspberry. More raspberry tartness and a slight bitterness from the seed in the middle. Foamy and yeasty at the back end with a puckering sour fruit throughout. Mellows in the finish with a slightly tart and very dry aftertaste. Simple and enjoyable.

Light bodied with ample carbonation. Prickly and lively in the mouth and goes down dry, puckering and filmy. Bone dry finish with a sticky, lingering, dry aftertaste. Refreshing and just what I want from the style.

Perhaps not as good as the cerise, there's a touch too much seed and bitter pit presence in this one. Still, its a very enjoyable beer that displays the qualities of the fruit perfectly.
