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.

#500! Love this sour! Big big raspberry taste upfront with the right amount of sour to go with it. Beautiful purplish color with a great nose. Well worth waiting for to have it at 500!
