3.98/5  rDev -11.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Beautiful clear ruby red color with a white head that sits atop it. Head falls gracefully until it just sticks around the glass. Aroma is largely of raspberries, but almost like a very light raspberry. I mean that in the sense that it isn't the over the top flavor and slight astringency one would get from actually eating a raspberry, it's more like a raspberry juice was used. There's also some definite cheesy notes in this that I find a bit distracting; various barnyard funk notes are also perceptible, but hidden beneath to me, which is unfortunate. Taste is another story, I actually enjoy it qutie a bit. Same thing again with the raspberry taste, there's no slightly astringent, kick-you-in-the-face raspberry flavor that I love, but it is enjoyable. Lactic tartness is one of the other things that comes right to the forefront, followed by some very pleasing funkiness. If this funkiness and/or the raspberries were a touch stronger, this beer would be much better, especially if some of the cheesy notes were no longer coming through in the nose. About medium carbonation with a decent body on the tongue, followed by a nice dry finish. A good beer that I'd surely have another of, however, price and availability do limit that.
