Serving type: 12-ounce bottle. A batch code is printed on the label but there is no freshness date. The bottle featured both a cap and cork. Also, this has to be the heaviest 12-ounce bottle I have ever held.
Appearance: Served in a New Glarus flute. About a finger of pink foam developed, but it did not stick around very long, leaving a ring around the edge and a skim in the center of the glass. The color is dark, raspberry red.
Smell: The intense fruitiness was impossible to miss after I pulled out the cork. I know it is supposed to be raspberry lambic, but it smells a lot like cranberry juice. However, the raspberries are very noticeable when I put my nose to the rim. The smell is of firm, freshly-picked raspberries.
Taste: Super, lip-puckering tart! And the tartness lingers in the aftertaste. Wow! However, after the initial shock it becomes much more palatable. At first I thought there may be more than raspberries — perhaps cranberries, apples, and grapes — but as the beer warms the rich, darker raspberry flavor takes over. There could be grapes and apples involved. Regarding the texture, mouthfeel, and overall experience, it is very reminiscent of sparkling cider.
Drinkability: Berrylicious! Very tart and fruity, but I like it.
Serving type: bottle
