Big thanks to Jeff for this one. 22oz. bottle into a Cantillon tulip. Shared with schen9303.

Pours a very thin .25 finger coarse white head that collapses quickly. No lace and near no legs. What saves the appearance is the stunning clear, dark red color. Just above average.

Nose is tart raspberry and strawberry. Seedy sweet and tartness. Mellow Brett funkiness in the back with a nice, jammy fruit presence upfront. Nicely aromatic. Very straightforward and appetizing.

Opens raspberry sweet and tartness. Raspberry seed in the middle with Brett funk, hay, and some woodiness in the middle. Fruit presence is huge... like I'm eating Raspberry puree. Sour fades out a bit in the end, showcasing a nice, sweet juiciness from the fruit. Seedy, slightly bitter aftertaste. Very good. Definitely one of the better fruited Wild's I've had.

Light bodied with ample carbonation. Prickly and lively in the mouth and goes down aggressive, bubbly and bright. Finish is puckering with a lingering, lip-smacking aftertaste. Real nice.

Just like the non-fruited version, Raspberry Ananke is incredible. Great, lively feel with an aggressive, aromatic and enticing nose. Flavor is spot on too. Seek this out!

Thanks to Dan for sharing this one with us! Quick review from written notes.

Reddish amber color in the glass with minimal foam and lacing. Less hazy than Ananke, but it could have just been the pour (beginning of the bottle, versus the end).

Tart raspberry aroma with an earthy edge, whole fruit, seeds/leaves/stems and all.

Taste is crisp and clean, bold fruity raspberry flavor with a nice minerality there also that gives it some depth beyond the fruit. Moderately tart and slightly puckering. A super drinkable fruited Wild Ale. Thanks again Dan for sharing! Recommended.
