Bottle shared by Americo via Sammy, 750ml bottle into a tulip.

Opaque darker orange, with a lofty white head. Great retention and good lacing. Nose is real tart, some general berry notes, oak and a small dose of vanilla. Taste has more of the same, less tart but nice oak, berry and a lightly sweet malt finish. High carbonation and a biting tartness. Pretty tasty, well done for a fruited sour.

Deep and cloudy pink colour with a generous retained white head. A wonderful tartness that is light and builds but never overwhelms. Fruity with dryness. Very drinkable, delicate. Some funk in aroma. One of a kind. Bottle from Campone's, sponsored by Americo.

Poured from a corked bottle at the Capones event into a 5.5 ounce snifter glass.

A: A hazy medium golden color with a half finger white head. Very cloudy and hazy with some minimal lacing.

S: Lots of fruit come through the nose with raspberry, apple, pear and straw mixed with some yeasty and earthy notes.

T: Raspberry is forefront with other fruit flavors of green apple, pear and maybe some cherry. There really is no sweetness but the yeasty funk mixed with some straw comes through midway with some woody flavor and stays on the finish. Finish is slightly sour but not enough to call it a sour. A little disappointing.

M: A little thin, good carbonation, slight tartness but not enough, no alcohol.

O: This was their first sour but it needs some work as it was not sour enough.

Overall I was disappointed in this beer, then mix in the insanely high price they charged for the bottle (per Matt Capone) and I can't do anything but leave disappointed. Sorry.

Pours like a cloudy grapefruit juice with a finger's worth of head that quickly dissipates. Some lacing is left on the glass.

Aroma is fairly complex featuring sweet raspberry and hints of oak.

There's a lot going on with the taste in this one. The wheat base makes itself known and there is definite raspberry flavor that brings a slight tartness to the party. The bitter flavor of raspberry seeds comes in at the finish.

Mouthfeel is pretty thin and a little grainy with just barely moderate carbonation. This one is highly drinkable given it's complexities... the glass has gone down much faster than anticipated.

Growler picked up at Gem and Keystone. From their website... "This is our first true "sour" offering; it is a blend of fresh Raspberry Blanche (whole raspberries) and going on one year old Raspberries (aged on oak) with some very intriguing local micro-flora."

Pours a pale, clear rosy pink color with a wispy, quickly fading stark white head and a few streaks of lacing. Aroma is very dry and fruity. More raspberry tart than sweet and balanced by a subtle dry earthiness. Pleasant, but a little boring. Medium bodied with effervescent, sharp carbonation. Flavor begins with a dominant tart raspberry flavor with a mild oaky sweetness. Finish is exceptionally dry, earthy and floral providing and interesting balance to the tart fruit. There is a faint lemon sourness but sadly not quite as strong as the description suggested. Fresh on tap this beer was even tarter with barely any sweetness. This lacks the complexity of the more highly regarded sours or even a New Glarus Raspberry Tart, but is still a pleasant offering and recommended.
