The color is a deep purple-brown. The head is a wispy but strong off-white one that holds up pretty well and drops some lace.
This beer has a funky undertone, good for the style but suppressed compared to the true greats. Raspberry makes a nice appearance, certainly not sweet sweet but at a good level, not overpowering or understated. It's quite dry, some tart and dusty notes underlying. It has more of the overall strength and character than many, but not quite enough to put it in the upper echelon.
The body is firm, a medium body with lots of crispness, some smoothness, and a tight dryness running through. It remains consistent from beginning to end.

This was one of the driest beers that I've ever tasted.

Pours a hazy, brownish-cranberry hue with a murky clarity. Head disperses quickly revealing chunks of what I assume is yeast floating on the surface. Nose is subdued and expresses dull raspberries and medicinal notes. Nice flavors - tart raspberries and acetic acid. Mouthfeel is light and lively with a tart, pleasant astringency. Overall, a solid framboise - not overly fruity but a decent sour. Not a beer that I would anticipate having aging potential.

3.9/5  rDev +0.8%

Poured a dark red, almost purple body with minimal pink head and a mostly raspberry aroma with minor sweet and sour notes.
The taste isn't all raspberries but close as other fruit flavors are minimal at best.
Smooth, slightly woody, a sweet edge but mostly a sour, slightly acidic feel but beer is balanced so you'll get both aspects.
Dry, sharp finish and not a complex lambic/fruit beer but worth trying.

Deep red clear. No head. No hop presence or aroma but does bring sourness to the nose. Puckering mouthfeel with a tingle of acidity and tartness. Hints of fruit

A reddish pour with a bit of a haze. White head with a pink tint recedes to a ring.
Aroma is tart and full of berry and vinous notes. Vinegar and merlot on the back end.

In the taste, grape concentrate, sourness, berry, and hay. Definitely strong fruit with farmhouse touches. Faint oak and tannins, definitely blending the lines between wine and beer. Malt grains round out the flavor

Medium bodied, well carbonated ale, with a fruity, winesque finish with a bit of tartness. Overall, not a bad sour ale, certainly borders on lambic territory.
