A: Fortunetely I didn't lose half the bottle due to gushing like others have. The cork was incredibly tough to remove as I feared the worst the entire time.
Murky redish brown. Like cranberrry juice. Big fizzy head. Leves a off white foam coating on the top that never stops. Just nicely carbonated. Tiny little bubbles keep the foam lasting long and strong.
S: As soon as the cork popped massive aroma of sweet raspberries exploded from the bottle. Very inviting and nice. Makes you want to take a sip ASAP. A little wood as well.
T: A great rich raspberry flavor that matches the nose. Mouth watering really. More sourness and tartness than the nose would lead, still not a ton, but enough so it's not a total fruit bomb. The sweetness of the raspberries really come out strong though. Maybe a tiny less sweetness and a tiny more sour and fuck.
My type of sour.
M: Light to Med body. Crisp. Great fizzy carbonation. Very smooth for a sour. The long tasting thin foam head gives it almost a slighty creamy texture when sipping. I can't stop sipping it.
D: Oh man, this wasn't so darn hard to get, I this could be my regular sour. (I do have ONE left!!) I would have guessed 5%, not 7% on this one.
I would be hard pressed to put down more than one or two at the most though. Def a sipper, but a darn tasty one.
I was honestly ready to be disappointed by this beer for some reason, but it came up big for me.

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.
