The beer pours out a dark pink color with a tan head that has great retention, but isnt very fine...sparse bubbles. The color is very murky. The aroma is incredibly balanced between the high acidic sourness and the raspberry. Great sour smell! The raspberry is very noticeable an compliments the beer's flavors very well. There is no acetobacter and the sourness is absolutely spot-on. What a beer. One of my favorite styles when done the right way (this being a killer American fruited sour). I'd love to try the base beer also. In the mouth it has a medium body which is lightened by the high carbonation, which combined with refreshing sourness, acidity, and tartness from fruit makes this super drinkable. I wish it would last longer.

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.
