Sampled 10 August 2013
Hazy golden appearance. Smell is pleasant with sour and fruity notes. Taste is very light and almost watery. Very little sourness. Intended to develop over time and I guess a year isn't long enough for this one. Very vigorous carbonation. Overall a well crafted beer but not one that is all that amazing at the moment.

It pours a hazy golden color with very thin white head.

The aroma has some nice citrus, funk and fruitiness to it.

The taste was dry at first with some light bitterness but then the sour kicks in and rounds out the flavor.

The body was light and lively.

This beer really is maturing, the fruitiness and tart flavor have become much more pronounced in the last year.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a tulip.

A: Cloudy, golden hue. Giant foamy white head, settles quickly. No real lacing.

S: Yeast, raspberry, white grape.

T: Yeast and fermented raspberry.

M: Light body, slightly fruity, funky aftertaste.

D: Sip and enjoy.

Atmosphere is pretty good. Nice head, no real lacing though. Yeast and raspberry make up the nose. Likewise with the flavor profile... fermented raspberry is prominent... light grainy body otherwise. Overall, this is a good quaff.
