Review from notes. Tasted from bottle at Lush West Town. Pours peach orange with a fluffy and long-lasting tan head. Nose is fresh, tart raspberry with a hint of chewable vitamins and some funk and sweet syrup. The flavor is sweet and tart raspberry with a sour and funky note and solid acidity. The body is light with lively carbonation and a long tart finish.

Pours an amber color with a faded pink hue and a moderate amount of cloudiness. Head is a thin film and fizzy .

Smell has tons of cider vinager aromas with a mild tart raspberry finish. Malt is light and cracker like and adds a nice balance to the sour aromas.

Taste is sour forward in a very plesent crisp cider like tartness that fades quickly into a lot of funk mixed in with some oak flavors. More tart raspberries and some more funk in te finish.

Mouthfeel is good. Light but sticky from the vinager and cut with a high amount of carbonation. A mild metallic finish however not off putting at all.

What an interesting, funky, tasty beer. It starts out enjoyable but only gets better as it warms. The sourness is prevalent but not overdone. And the same can be said for the funkiness. Lots of strawberry and raspberry flavors, some maltiness,, and a smooth mouthfeel and aftertaste. Really cool and fun. Will definitely drink more of this when I get a chance.
