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.

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.

A barrel aged beauty of mature sour beer that had several hundred pounds of raspberries added it. It pours a dark ruby color with a little head that disappears quickly. The aroma of raspberry hits you immediately. The taste is initially sour but the tartness of the raspberry quickly overtakes that. It finishes slightly oaky and lightly acidic. It’s almost like a Berliner Weisse w/ raspberry syrup dropped in already. I'm generally not a sour beer fan at all but this brew is good. The vibrant and fruity flavor offsets the sourness very nicely.
