On tap at the KBS release. Out of all the beers we tried that night, this was my least favorite, but it was still good. Light ruby colored body. Taste of sour cranberries with some malt characters. I may have rated this higher, but living in Wisconsin and having access to New Glarus and there tart beers have really made all others tough to compare. Still pretty good.

I am drinking this exactly three months past its bottle date.
Big raspberry nose with a hint of light funk in the background. The glass is sitting on the table and I can still smell raspberries.
Brilliant ruby garnet, ½” pinkish foam cap quickly dissipates. Above average carbonation, slight oiliness, medium to medium light body.
Was afraid of getting a pop beer but it is surprisingly good. Big raspberry flavors are supported by a light tart touch over a hint of caramel and light bread.
A well balanced, refreshing summer beer.
