Review from notes dated 8/2/14

Cheers to Bilco for sharing this

A: Deep, rich garnet red - borderline absurd, unbelievable color, pretty much the most red thing I've ever seen - no head, no carbonation, but the color is so rich that I couldn't care less

S: Raspberry madness - more raspberry aroma than actual raspberries, it's like fresh raspberry concentrate - fleshy, with some serious berry - nice tart edge, with some sourness - minimal sweetness

T: Raspberries, raspberries everywhere - lightly fermented raspberry juice, raspberry puree - light level of tart, sour - the emphasis here is really the fruit - the potent raspberry is so intense that it almost overpowers all malt, all yeast - like eating a bag of raspberries, minus the sugar - beautifully dry

M: Medium body, super smooth, virtually no carbonation, a lovely sipper

O: Holy raspballs!

So. Much. Raspberry. This is one of the best uses of raspberry ever, up there with New Glarus Raspberry Tart.

Big thanks to Alex for this one!

This beer is gorgeous. A dark ruby body with a nice pink head. I certainly don't select beers based on their looks... but you gotta give credit where credit is due... and this beer looks like Christina Ricci in black snake moan. Raspberries dominate the aroma. A slight sour kick up front in the taste but then the tartness from the raspberries takes over. A little bit oakey, acidic, with a touch of fruity sweetness. It's def a sipper but I think that's the point of most wild ales. You could tell it was unfiltered and unpasturized as there was lots of remnants left at the bottom of the bottle. I loved every sip of this beer and am very thankful I got to try it.

Incredible sour. Incredible color. Very clean and consistent. My favorite JK sour offering so far.

One of the most beautiful beers I've seen in the glass -- a luminous ruby/raspberry. Crisp, tart and dry. The raspberry fruit is absolutely huge and bright. Yet, it is not cloying in any way. World class.
