Dark pink/red in color with a smallish pink head after a pretty vigorous pour. The smell had be a bit worried at first because it is dominated by sweet, jammy raspberries, much like Rubaeus and Raspberry Tart. However, the taste is very sour, and the sourness combines really well with the fruit to create a fantastic beer. Not the most complex sour, but very enjoyable.
