750mL purchased from Bottles last year. Split 2 years. This is the 3 year anniversary (since this is the blend of cherry and raspberry unlike the Sole Comp.)
A: Murky clay-brown. Lacing ends up with a ring of Saturn torn out of the middle. Not pretty by a long shot, but it'll do.
N: Stinging raspberries, acetone, vinegar, cherry, and oak. Oak is composed of a general woodiness. Not a penetrating smell by any mans. Floral elements abound as dust an attic mustiness.
T: Quite sour. Cherries are in concert with the raspberries - neither dominate. Lemon juice concentrate, tannic oakiness, some soapiness, and a lot of horse blanket and attic dust. Clementine oranges that were soaked in vinegar.
M: Surprisingly light and somewhat watery.
O: An enjoyable beer, but it's not a stand out in an crowded field. I miss the original's burst of fruit, so this might get unfairly downgraded because of that aspect. A balanced beer and not one to disappoint, but it's not their best. (Though, I don't find most of Upright's sours to be top tier.)
