11.2oz bottle poured into a tulip glass.

A - Medium sized cap of tan head. Color is brown but has great clarity and a beautiful red glow when held to light. Adequate amount of lacing.

S - Popping bright unripe raspberries. Muddled chocolate malt. Slight hint of funk. Mild grassiness. Hinting some vinegar.

T - Zing! Wow that first sip made me pucker. Extremely tart upfront. Once I adjust, I find those underrippend raspberry flavors. Got some sweetness midway which cleans up near the end giving a crispness to it. The later half is where there is a slight window for other flavors to come through. I get some faint caramel malt and grassy hops. Leaves my mouth with a dry feel but tons of raspberry flavor when I even lick my lips.

M - Tart, medium-light body, medium carbonation, semi-dry.

O - Nice looking beer with a complex nose. I knew there would be a bit of sourness to this but the aroma left me vulnerable to the taste onslaught. After I finish my sip I can still pucker up simply from licking my lips. Fun beer and though I love my sours, this was reaching my threshold.
