375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep reddish brown. Nice white head. Thick collar.

Smell - Intense spicy oak. Nice raspberry. Vanilla and acidic.

Taste - Raspberry, but it isn't that sweet. Spicy wood and vanilla. Raspberry persists. Some deep caramel malts blend well with the sour raspberry flavor.

Mouthfeel - Nice tartness. Medium body. Well carbonated.

Overall - The raspberry is almost too intense, but everything else balances it out really nicely. Superb beer.

Dark maroon pour, topped with a wispy layer of off white bubbles that rejuvenated with a swirl and left a few strands of lace on the glass. Lacto aroma, raspberry, lemon, red wine, yogurty, with hints of acetic acid. Tart raspberry in the taste, sour vinegar notes, but nothing out of control, lemony lacto, notes of leather and yogurt. Medium body, prickly mouthfeel. Not quite as good as the Dark Origins version, but still a tasty sour.

Bottle opened on 7.3.14

Sour brown, oaky with a raspberry finish. No sweetness at all. Something a bit off in the middle.
