Bottle poured into a Cantillon Tulip. 2012 Bottle

A - Color is a deep dark Ruby red that reminds you of the color of fresh raspberries. There is a big frothy pinkish head that sits on top of this one

S - The main note in the nose is fresh raspberries that leans a bit to the tarter raspberry side. There is also lemon, balsamic vinegar and light oak.

T - Taste is pure sour raspberries up front. There is a strong balsamic vinegar and lemon that comes in the middle that makes you pucker up. The finish is mostly this balsamic vinegar presence that lingers on

M - Medium carbonation and it packs a lot of tingle on the tongue due to the sharp tartness. The finish is dry and leaves a tart, prickly feeling on the tongue

O - This is one of the better Upland sours that I've had as it is tart and packs a lot of the fruit flavor. It is definitely a tart lambic as it has minimal funky characteristics to it.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Not a gusher! Pink body with a big white head. Thick collar.

Smell - Lots of raspberry and a ton of acidity. Lactic. Grain. Very intense sourness.

Taste - Intensely sour. Good tart raspberry. A little bit of vinegar. Grainy wheat.

Mouthfeel - Highly carbonated. Strong acidity.

Overall - Better than I expected but reappy goddamn sour.
