look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Very pale golden body. Small white head. Thin collar.

Smell - Raspberries. Wheaty grain and a faint acidity.

Taste - Much more tart. Sour raspberry. Grainy wheat. Some earthy funk in the back from the brett.

Mouthfeel - Light and very drinkable. Pleasantly sour. Puckering in the finish.

Overall - Not complex. Very straightforward, but a very drinkable sour.

Big ups to rathakem for always hooking up the OR beery love. Enjoyed from a block 15 pilsner glass.
2013 vintage

a - beer pours a foggy yet champagne like golden yellow with a thin bubbly head that had some creaminess to it and hung out. Lively carb raced to the surface.

s - nose is dynamite. Eggy white wine and oak. Great fruitiness from the raspberries..floral even but with a great sourness.

t - taste matches the nose. Simply awesome. Golden raspberry, brett, oak, wine, with a wonderful sweet tartness.

m - easy drinker, nice carbonation. Great pucker but far from being overly sour.

o - was fortunate enough to have had the previous vintage of this brew before and loved it so i knew what i was getting into.

Big thanks to Jedwards for the final pre-move blowout cellar crash. Served in an Oerbier stem. Pours a tawny gold with a translucent clarity and no head. Nose expresses raspberries and cotton candy. Taste expresses some faint vinegary notes with the raspberries still present, but hidden in the background. Mouthfeel is light and bright with an easy carbonation and a pleasant, almost creamy acidity. Overall, the nose on this beer is nothing short of spectacular; however, this beer is an incredibly approachable and tasty sour. I'd love to get my hands on more of this beer.
