Pour is dark clear caramel with a tan head. Nose is very similar to light. Lots of raspberry in the nose, hint of acetic acid, funk is faint. Taste is sweet, raspberry and a bit acetic in the finish. Very tart, light malt underneath. High carb and light body.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep ruby body. Small off-white head. Thin collar.

Smell - Raspberry. Kinda vinegary. Oak and deep caramel.

Taste - Pretty sour. Lots of oak. Dark malts come through with a bit of roastiness. Intense sour cherry and raspberry. Sourness overwhelms in the end.

Mouthfeel - Very sour. Well carbonated and medium body.

Overall - Upland sours are always intensely sour and this is no different. The flavors are strong enough to stand up, though.
