This beer attacks of an absurd amount of tartness. While being familiar with wild ales, this beer is quite memorable in the sense is numbingly sour. The acid even burns down the esophagus.

Still, the rasberry fruit flavor is there and the beer is filled of flavor. I find that most will have a hard time with this one, unless they truly enjoy extreme tartness.

Clear and full red. A quarter inch of fizzy head.

Smells like unripe raspberries and vinegar.

Way sour. Raspberry and cider vinegar. It's more dry than sweet.

Thin mouthfeel, but works. Heavy carbonation.

It was ok. I would have liked more sweetness to cut the acidity but otherwise a decent raspberry lambic.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Served from a 750ml C&C. Bottle 12-20-13. Celalr Temps.

Appearance- Beautiful ruby with quick off-white bubbly head that left no lacing.

Smell- Tons of raspberry! Lots of funk and oaky smells. It's pure raspberry jam.

Taste- Holy jesus. Raspberry, vanilla, oak, tons of vinegar. Very sour raspberry jam. A good bit of funk.

Mouthfeel- Sharp carbonation with bracing acidity. Light body with tiny amount of heat.

Overall- Extremely sour, as I imagined it would be due to what I've heard, but tons of raspberry and oak. Very nice birthday treat.
