On tap at the 2013 Firestone Walker Invitational held at the Paso Robles Event Center in Paso Robles, CA.

Pours a clear dark red with a foamy reddish-white head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is sour and tart with raspberry and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with sour raspberry flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and refreshing.

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!
