A raspberry brown ale, soured only using lactic acid directly, not through lactic or wild fermentation. Almost certainly not technically a "wild" ale, but then probably neither is any beer inoculated directly with nice clean strains of Brett or Lacto. Had from a bottle at Penny Blue during their "Sourfest" event at GBW2013.

Pours a mostly brown hue, with a bit of red to it when held to the light or at the edges. Body is hazed but pretty solid. Head forms an off-white, solid slightly foamy ring that leaves some patchy streaks of lace. Overall, it looks pretty good.

Loads of banana on the nose: too much. Funky overripe fruit and cut grass with a thick sweetness like brown sugar. Only after a while can I perceive the sour: some acid and a bit of green vegetative character. That's about it. I'm not enthused.

Light and prickly with acid at the start, but soon after, there's stacks more banana and again lots of brown sugar sweetness. Finish is astringent and very dry: it's like chewing aspirin, with a little tartness but plenty of harsh bitterness as well. Finish is yeasty, somewhat Belgian in conception but with that medicinal finish.

Feel is also very dry, thin and astringent.

I'm not a fan. Really. The acidity makes it thin and the banana character makes it bloated. Together it's just a mess. I like the experimental nature (I'll always try interesting sounding beers), but this is not one I'll be in a hurry to reach for again.
