375 ml bottle corked and caged poured into a Darkness snifter sharred with a fellow BA.
A- Poured a 3 finger off white head that dissipates to a nice bubbly ring around the glass, burnt orange color, red hues off the bottom, cloudy cannot see through it, decent lacing.
S- Really nice aroma, fresh raspberries, nice oak comes out, some vinegar, nice funkiness, exited to try this.
T- Really nice, big tartness, raspberries upfront, oak, vinegar, nice acidity, really puckering, really impressive
M- Medium mouth feel, dry at this finish, puckering, well carbonated.
O- Impressive, love the sour puckering notes, was not disappointed, love the fruitiness, raspberries, nice oak, nice complexity, really enjoyable.

Thanks to eyebereej for sending this particular bottle! Reviewed from notes. Poured from 375 mL bottle into a Peg's snifter.
A: Deep hazy red with lots of visible carbonation and a two-finger foamy off-white head.
S: Tart, acetic, and fruity - sour cherries and raspberries - with moderate funk undertones.
T: Significant tartness up front. I get both acetic and lactic in near-equal balance. Sour raspberries, some funk, and a bit of barnyard. Finishes fairly dry with the lingering sourness.
M: Medium to a bit light-bodied. Good carbonation sensation. It seems a little hot for the style, but the ABV is higher than many similar beers - and it doesn't affect drinkability.
O: This was very good. I felt like it wasn't quite as complex as the best fruited sours, and the increased alcohol heat seemed a little out of place. But still quite enjoyable.
