Big thanks to Jon for sharing this bottle.
A: It's a great looking beer, a bit of a cloudy pinkish-orange with a small white head.
S: Getting a lot of funk in the smell, as it warms I get more raspberries.
T: WOW! Okay, I was a little concerned after the underwhelming aroma, but this beer tastes absolutely amazing. It's like if you took a berliner weisse, pumped up the flavor, made it more sour and added raspberries to it. Absolutely awesome and unique. One of the best tasting sours I've ever had.
M: Light and crispy with a lot of carbonation. Just perfect.
O: Hands-down one of the best tasting beers I've ever had. If the smell was a little better, this beer would be an all-time great if you ask me. Take this with a grain of salt though - this is coming from someone who loves Berliner Weisses, so it's right up my alley.

Reviewed from notes. On-tap for the 3rd Anniversary Party at the Phoenix Club. 5/29/11.
A: Pours a clear yellow under a huge 2-inch thick white head which quickly fades and leaves spots of lace.
N: Funky, wonderfully sour fresh raspberry, red wine, oak tannins, grass/hay.
T: Bite of astringency, tangy citrusy zest and sour with a wallop of sweet fruits, tannins and vinous notes.
M: Moderate body and semi-full carbonation. Finishes sour and tart, wheaty and fruity.
O: Very good. Went back for more.

A - Hazy golden yellow with a nice white head. Good looking sour
S - Light tart raspberries, lemon, sweet tarts, and oak
T - Soft Berliner Weiss with straw and a light earthy grassy up front. As it goes in there is a light tart presence, sweet tarts and raspberries. Nice soft and balanced
M - Soft mouth feel, light tart aspect, and slightly chalky like after you eat a sweet tart
O - Good sour that is well balanced with light tartness and some good fruit presence from the raspberries
