4.13/5  rDev -5.5%

Draft to snifter. Looks good; the color from the raspberries is definitely visible. Smell is the weakest attribute of this beer. It's got some sour raspberry notes, but too subdued for what it is. Tastes great; tart and dry with a great balance between the sour and raspberries. Mouthfeel is good too, although a little age would probably improve it. Overall, a great sour that's definitely worth trying if you're at the Cafe.

on-tap, maduro, 2 pours

appearance: served in a pint and also an awesome bells tulip - garnet body, light beige head, good clarity

smell: tart, oak, fresh raspberry, funk

taste: This was good stuff and it's no wonder the keg kicked quite quickly - funky tartness throughout, great pulpy raspberry presence, oak, bread

mouthfeel : good carbonation, nice puckering tartness

overall: very strong variation on the Wild One

Had this on tap at Savor NYC this past weekend. Pours a maroon color, little to no head on this. Has a strong smell of raspberry. Taste was surprising tart. I had this following Founders Rubaeus to compare the two and I was surprised by how much more tart this one was.

It was still a very enjoyable beer to drink, would definitely have it again, but probably will not get my chance living in nyc.
