12 oz bottle courtesy of dajtai007 pours a very clear reddish-brown color with a minute film of tan head. Nice.

Nose is amazing, raspberries shine so bright and vibrant, mild sourness and little nuttiness.

Fruity, tart goodness is bursting at every sip. Concord grape juice and wine barrels imparts clean flavors and a perfect balance. Awesome beer, I think Avery is getting this barrel sour thing down to a science.

Picked this up at Julio's shortly after release. Poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a darker brown garnet hue with a thin quarter inch head that fades almost immediately to leave light wisps and halo. Pours like an Oude Bruin.

S - Aromas just pop here. Fresh berries and big big jam notes. The wine is light as it the must. Soo much bright raspberry jam here without the cloy sweetness that say, a New Glarus Raspberry brings to the table.

T - Taste is equally as delicious. Great raspberries here, fresh berry, tart seeds, big jam notes. Did I say BIG jam notes already? The oak comes into play with big tannins and vinous notes along with light dusty funk. Super tart/sour towards the end with a very big lingering of tart raspberries.

M - Mouthfeel is super dry, nicely carbonated. Almost a teeth scraper.

O - Overall, this was a damn good beer. The raspberry is so bright yet jammy. A pleasure to drink this beer, a real pleasure.

Very little head. Color is a copper amber.

Flavor profile: acid, tart, and sour. Lots of raspberries. Reminds me of a sour brown ale. Cherry flavors. Very fruity. I am guessing this comes from the wine barrels. It has tanin flavors and oak in it as well. Lemon citrus flavors.

Mouthfeel: tart and mildly mouth puckering. Light bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall, a solid sour. Very Oude bruin like, except it has raspberries. Derfinetely enjoyable.

Hazy mahogany pour with a small tan head. Lactic sourness, oak, cherry, raspberry, plum, lemon, in the aroma. Tart, acidic dark fruits, raspberry, lemon peels, lactic acid, woody oak and a touch of malt. Medium bodied and strong tart ending. Wonderfully balanced. Great beer.
