12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Pours close to pink. Deep red, maybe. Clear. No head, no life.

Smell - Sour raspberry. Straightforward. Slight malt aroma.

Taste - Really sour. Less prominently raspberry flavored, though. Sourness covers up anything else. Grain in the back and a vinegary kick at the very end.

Mouthfeel - Really sour. Medium low carbonation.

Overall - Eh, I don't love how sour it is, especially at the very end. Not a complex sour.

A - Well it's definitely pink... Spending some time with this brew, the color of the rosewater peach / mellon body really grew on me, and the complete lack of head didn't seem to detract from the overall appearance.

S - Wow, great nose. Tons of sour cantaloupe supported by fruit punch, lemon, and sour apple.

T - Now that is tasty. Sour apple warheads, watermelon, tart raspberries, plum, lemon, and a really interesting tangy greek yogurt finish.

M - Paradoxically smooth with a bright carbonation, sharp acidity, and crisp finish.

O - A surprising find. A really nice American Wild with a unique flavor profile.

A: pours pink with a small off white colored head that fades fairly quickly to a collar around the glass in a Duvel Tulip
S: smells of raspberries, lactic acid sourness and a bit of funk
T: tastes of tart raspberries, some lactic acid, and a nice slightly bready and wheaty maltyness with a bit more lactic sourness and funk. swallow is more rasberry and that same maltyness
M: lighter side of medium with nice and slightly vigorous carbonation. refreshing finish with a bit of pucker and slightly drying at times
O: definitely not the sourest or the most flavorful but what it does it does well. I liked it enough on tap that I bought a bottle of it.

Bottle poured into a tulip glass. Beer pours a dark hazy red color with a finger of loose pink foam head. Head dissipates quickly with no lacing. Plenty of fine carbonation floating up from the bottom of the glass.

Nose is plenty of fresh sweet raspberries, a little malt sweetness. Not much other than a red berry tartness, not much wild character in the aroma.

Taste leads with a nice hit of raspberries, sweet and tart, a little bit of oak, sweet biscuit malt. Finish is light tart raspberry, but a strong buttery flavor (I guess it would be diacetyl) that takes away from the taste.

Light body with a lively refreshing carbonation. The heavy buttery flavor takes away the emphasis from the raspberries though.

Pours a brownish pink color. Somewhat cloudy. The head is off-white and small, and it fades away after a few minutes. The aroma is dominated by a big raspberry flavor, which is quite pleasant. The fruit smells tart, bright and fresh. There's also a touch of oak. When the beer was cold, I couldn't pick it up on it, but as it warmed, a buttery diacetyl note came out more and more. The taste starts out with a big tart raspberry flavor. Some oak enters the fray afterwards and dry things out with a nice tannic note. Some mild buttered popcorn kicks in around the middle and then increases significantly in the finish. The finish and aftertaste are a blend of buttered popcorn and sour raspberries. It's not as bad as Unity as in Edward, but it hurts things quite a bit for me. That lingering buttery flavor is just unpleasant. Mouthfeel is prickly. Medium to medium strong pucker. I would really like AI to figure out their diacetyl issues because they have good prices and are going in a fun direction.
