4.06/5 rDev -0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Pours a hazy pinkish to ruby color, with lots of large bubble carbonation, soda-like. The head dissipates, but that isn't surprising.
The smell is mostly a funky sour. I get more cheese-mold type of funk cold, and the sour comes more as it warms. I do get a little fruit in the background, hard to tell if it's raspberry.
The taste starts a bit more fruity than the smell. The sour milk comes next, followed by the cheesy funk. However, it was nice to see the raspberry cone through more in the taste. The carbonation does die off eventually, but it does contribute to the feel, which is also a bit more chewy than I'd expect.
Overall this is a good beer, but it feels just slightly incomplete for me. The raspberry is hinted at, the sour starts to pucker, but then gives way to a cheese curd finish. Very interesting, and I would definitely have again, but it just needed something more to get to great for me.
