2.73/5  rDev -27.6%

750 ml bottle, bottled on 2014.01.27. Pours hazy pinkish red with a medium creamy light pink head that foes to a thin film and laces the glass some.

The aroma is strong tart raspberries.

The flavor is watery tart raspberries. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and watery.

Overall, OK watery tart raspberries.

750ml brown bottle.

Hazy pale rose hue, great lacing all around from a slowly dissipating head. Raspberry jam, mild tartness, and mild cellar funk in the nose. A little slick and thin with a decent amount of crispness. Mild tartness and an even raspberry flavor from start to finish. Dry cracker-like maltiness, faint yeast, earthy, musty, peppery, and more tartness in the finish.

On the lighter side for tart brews which only makes it that much more drinkable for me. Very sessionable without a massive puckering character.

Appearance - Being full of raspberries, this beer has a dark pink/red hue and is cloudy. Mildly creamy head with low retention.

Smell - A deep raspberry smell is complimented by the slightly sour smell of brett. An initial yeasty fragrance wears off with the head.

Taste - The taste is much more mild than expected from the smell. Doesn't make the face pucker or jaw tingle like lacto sours and seems to be even more mild than many brett sours. Also, the raspberry taste is not as bold as the smell would imply. Not much funkiness either. While the flavors of fruit and sour are well balanced, they are slightly too subtle, leaving a flat taste at the middle and end of each sip. This beer could benefit from more boldness in each of these flavors.

Mouthfeel - Good carbonation balance. Light, smooth, and airy as it travels around the mouth.

Overall - The appearance and mouthfeel are enjoyable. The smell yields decent expectations for the taste, which while well balanced, lacks boldness and leaves something to be desired.

Thanks to ablackshear for this extra!

750ml bottle sealed with "FW" logo pressure cap.

bottled on 2014.04.03

poured into HF Wine Stem

Appearance: this beer looks like a slightly dark color than what pink lemonade looks like. Thin and whispy white head. Drops down to a thin ring.

Smell: This beer smells fantastic. Juicy fresh raspberries and raspberry seeds. Also getting a hint of strawberries too. Very fruit forward. Not much else in the nose.

Taste: The taste is a bit of a let down. If the beer tastes like it smell it would be fantastic. Fruit forward beer that is almost, but not quite tart. It is very close to drinking liquified raspberries. With hints of strawberries and watermelon. As the beer warms you get just the slighest bit of cheesy funk. Not overly complex and does not have big flavors.

Mouthfeel: light bodied beer with very low carbonation. Feels a bit watery and thin. Extremely drinkable; probably the most crushable 750ml bottle of Wild Ale that I have tried, to be completely honest.

Overall: Provincial is a better beer than Raspberry Provincial. This beer needs more flavor and better mouthfeel that is similiar to Provincial. It is a pretty good option for a session beer on a hot day. Raspberry Provincial is label as a Wild ale and it would be an extremely great beer to introduce someone to a fruit beer or wild ales without it really being sour(if that makes any sense at all...).

4.42/5  rDev +17.2%

for a berliner weiss, not that sour at all, more sweet with plenty of raspberry, both in the nose and tongue. Body amazingly light and super-drinkable, like a great thirst-quencher brew for a super summer day.

Light and airy with great raspberry finish. Massively delicious. Definitely a must-try for berliner or fruit beer fans. I can see this one being real popular with the ladies.
