**REVIEW NUMBER 800**

Big thanks to Daemose for this bottle! Reviewed from notes. Poured from 16.9 oz. bottle into a Peg's snifter.

A: Pours a very deep crimson, quite hazy. Forms a thin off-white head with fairly low visible carbonation.

S: Funk, tart raspberries with jammy character. Sour and barnyard intermingle with dry oak tannins.

T: Juicy, jammy raspberries. Tart and sour and acidic. Oak dryness with the sour causes some tingly sensation, and has an understated barnyard funk. As it warms, flavors of underripe blackberries develop. All of the big bright flavors fade to a tart acidic dryness with residual yeastiness quite quickly - a bit of a strange sensation.

M: Nice full mouthfeel. Average carbonation sensation and alcohol content is well-integrated.

O: The raspberry flavors are so real, I caught myself having the check-for-raspberry-seeds-in-the-teeth sensation. But all of the rich flavors present here just disappear right at or just after the swallow - very odd, and not sure why. But this is good…very good. Perhaps not the complexity to the funk profile that Cantillon, etc. has. But more than enjoyable. Very glad I had the chance to try it.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A- Brilliant vibrant bright framboise, transparent. Minimal head quickly dissipates to large rose colored lacing. Medium legs.

S- Huge raspberry forward, slight acid in the back. Its raspberry, but comes off aromic as fresh flowers; deep dark and seedy

T- Big raspberry forward, a bit watery after that; then kind of a void. But the vibrant raspberry gets it to 4.25.

M- A bit watery again here, I like the thicker smoother styles of crooked stave batch 1 or framboos. The carb is about right, if not a bit too much. Nevertheless a great beer here.

O- Jester King is really doing great things, and I can see why they are highly regarded. Probably put this around #6 or so roughly in the belgian & domestic raspberry sour/lambic categories.
