Been looking forward to trying this for a bit, big fan of raspberry sours.

Pours a vibrant red/pink color with a tiny ring of white head.

Smell is incredible, strong raspberry, oak, and lactic tartness.

Taste follows suit, though the soureness overpowers the raspberry a bit too much.

Mouthfeel is a bit thin, and could use a touch more carb.

Overall, a very enjoyable beer. I would like to see a touch of sweetness in this beer to give it a better balance. I considered running out and grabbing a bottle of NG Rasberry Tart to mix a bit, but was too lazy. Would love to try that combo in the future.

Blend 4 poured into a Jester King tulip glass.

Pours an almost ruby red color with a 2 finger reddish head the disappears very quickly. On the nose you get slight oak with really strong acidic raspberries. The taste is awesome. Great pucker from the raspberries. Great oak notes. Just what I expected. It is definitely sour. Mouthfeel is refreshing and then a little dry. Overall a fantastic beer!! Love the tartness.

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

500 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Batch 1 or Blend 1 or whatever. Had this next to batch 4.

Appearance - Bright red body. Small white head. Settles to nothing pretty quickly.

Smell - Wow. Oaky and acidic raspberry. Really nice.

Taste - Very sour. Almost too sour. Still has a great raspberry flavor. Extremely oaky, especially in the finish. Lightly yogurty.

Mouthfeel - Almost too sour. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Excellent and better than blend 4, but not by much. Just a more complex sour beer, even though it has less of a raspberry jammy flavor.
