Dark mahogany red, Raspberry,and sour dry finish, some nice sour on the nose as well.

Like this very much as well as the other beers i had there. Closest to a Catillion i have had yet. Please Bottle this!!

P.S. They need to get FREE WI-FI. If you are going to have such a relaxing feel to the place.

On tap at Bells Eccentric Cafe, served in a snifter.

Pour: Mostly hazy deep ruby, with a touch of mahogany. Barely and eight of an inch of fizzy head that subsides quickly to a rim. No lacing.

Smell: Big burst of raspberry sweetness up front, followed by some lactic sourness and a nice funk. A touch of oak. Some white vinegar creeps in. Finishes with lots of raspberries and funk.

Taste: Follows the nose with a burst of overripe raspberries, but a smack of big lactic sourness. Lots of tartness and some oak and juicy pear and raspberry through the middle. Finishes with funk and tartness.

Mouthfeel: More tart than I was expecting, but very drinkable. Carb is very prickly, but refreshing.

Overall: I'm glad I made the trip to Bell's to try this. Delicious!
