every bit as good as cherry origins, and one of my favorite of the cellar reserve series. the raspberry is really forward in this, and way more tart than sweet, playing well with the burgundy malt base of this beer, and only exacerbating and enhancing the already extremely sour finish. its never really fruity exactly, which is cool, but the raspberry is very forward in this. its hard to explain, but the berry is assimilated into the base beer seamlessly, it doesnt seem forced in any way at all. quite a lactic finish to this thing, citric acidity too, and less funk than other crooked stave beers, this one is all sourness and pucker, dry and harsh a little in the finish. i like that its a red sour that avoids the vinegar hit of the flanders style, my palate prefers this type of bacterial integration much more. the berries give it life, and both this and the cherry edition take regular origins to the next level. truly astounding beer.
