So this is my first review, bear with me.

Had 4oz of this in a wine glass on Sept 7 on tap at Jester King, when I was picking up my allotted three bottles. Wish they would have let me fill my growler!

Appearance: Beautiful shade of crimson, a small pink head that dissipated pretty quickly.

Smell: Wow. This is where the beer really shines. The raspberry really comes through here, it's as if they were just picked off the bush. Hints of the oak and farmhouse funk come through too, but the fresh raspberry is definitely dominant.

Taste: Very tart, raspberry flavor is predictably strong, and again very clean and fresh. Unlike some fruited sours, it doesn't get syrupy sweet. This is surprisingly dry. A bit of the funk flavor comes through, less so with the oak. I could drink this stuff all day, damn that 3 bottle limit!

Mouthfeel: Not thick and syrupy like some others can be. A nice balance of carbonation.

Overall: This beer will become famous, that I'm sure of. Certainly my favorite of Jester King's very interesting selection. I'm going to be drinking those bottles very slowly, it will be interesting first to see how the bottle differs from the Draught version, and second to see how the beer ages over time. I'm excited, will drink this only on special occasions, for sure.

Serving type: on-tap
