Pour is a transparent red with a mostly white head that has a faint pink hue. Nose is almost all raspberry. Very fleshy sweet raspberry without the tartness. Taste is heavily sweet raspberry with a faint tartness and a sour finish. Puckeringly sour and dry, fairly assertive carb. A bit sugary and sweet and very singular with huge raspberry flavor.

From 01/25/14 notes. On tap at the brewpub.

a - Pours a clear pinkish red color with one inch of lightly red-white head and low carbonation evident. Looks great.

s - Smells of sweet and sour raspberries, fruity malts, spice, grains, yeast, and floral notes. Very nice nose, I like it a lot.

t - Tastes of lightly sweet raspberries, fruity malts, lightly sour raspberries, floral notes, and earthy notes. Taste is nice but pretty light...reminds me of jolly ranchers candies.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Not acedic at all, easy to drink.

o - Overall a nice crisp fruit/sour beer. Not too sour overall but I liked it, with a nice mix of sour and sweet raspberries. Worth checking out but don't expect a sour bomb.
