Big thanks to SliverX for sharing this bottle...

A: This beer pours a translucent light red/pink with very little head. What foam does exist is relegated to the edges of the glass, and they fade quickly.

S: The nose is big raspberry, citrus, and familiar sour funk. This beer smells great.

T: The flavors in this beer are, as one would imagine, big raspberry. This beer is completely as advertised. A sour than has had a ton of delicious raspberries added to it. So good.

M: Medium bodied beer. This beer starts out with a blast of fresh raspberry and then the sour comes on to rip out your taste-buds. It finishes really dry.

O: I really enjoyed this wild ale. Loved the raspberry notes, loved the sour, and loved the funk. I will be "in search of" this beer, always.

Bottle: Poured a clear pink reddish color ale with a large foamy head with some average retention and some lacing. Aroma of fresh wild raspberry with some tart notes and light acidic edge is really nice. Taste is a super nice mix between some fresh raspberry with limited amount of sweetness but just enough to cut through some of the acidic notes with some tart and light oak notes also well discernable. Body is about average with good carbonation. Really well brewed with perfect addition of raspberry and some vinous notes well balanced.
