deep mango in color with a light head of white on top that was quickly fading and left a light ring around the outside of the glass. Aroma is insane, huge lemon and citrus notes, tart as hell, rich fruit, wet straw, hay, horse funk all over this thing. Insane is an understatement, but then you take the first sip and it is over. Wonderful notes of tart fruit, lemons, hints of huge lime notes, tart cherries and almost raspberry notes. Incredibly sour with a huge and almost insurmountable tartness. Light airy body makes it go down like water

Serving type: growler

Review #1500. I guess it shall be this beer. Snifter.

A: Pink tinged red with a finger of pinkish white foam. Really great color and perfect clarity.

S: Raspberry and strawberry with notes of raspberry seeds. Sweet with sugary characteristics and a pronounced lactic profile. Moderately sour.

T: Tart and lactic with raspberry seed and flesh. Tastes like raspberry lemonade with a little strawberry. The fruit profile is great. Finishes fruity with a lingering lactic sourness and a mild acidity.

M: Upper light body with high carbonation.

Overall: Really nice. Highly drinkable with great fruit expression. Very good stuff.

On draft for the Funky Buddha 1 year anniversary. This beer stole the show that night. I had tasted previous treatments but this was just incredible. The red ruby color really gives insight to what the aroma and flavor hold. Raspberries all the way, along with a solid sour presence as well. This should be label a sour in my opinion but whatever they call it I’m just glad they made it.

Thanks Chad! Pours a bright red with a hint of orange. Small white head that disappears quickly. Scent is...Holy Shit! Grapefruit up the ying yang. Why is this not a grapefruit Berliner? Anyhow, hints of orange peel, raspberry, and lemon. Slightly acidic. Taste is initially sweet raspberry, immediately followed by intense sour grapefruit. Mouthfeel is light bodied with puckering grapefruit finish. Drinkability is very high. Overall, love this brewery so far. Outstanding beer with intense flavors.

Beer presents pinkish red with almost no head

Smells of sour raspberries and funk

Tastes follows the nose. Sour raspberries with some subtle sour apple notes.

Mouthfeel is light with a dry finish that leaves my mouth puckering

Overall this is a very tasty brew. For their first sour style brew this dude is mighty good

Poured into tulip glass.

Appearance: Pours bright red, no head, no lacing.

Smell: Grapefruit dominates, subtle raspberry and passionfruit.

Taste: Again, lots of grapefruit, subtle raspberry, funk, sour.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, good carbonation, acidic.

Overall: A delight. The color is amazing. Not as much rasberry smell/taste as I'd hoped, but the grapefruit sour/funk is delicious. I'd love to get some more of this. Possibly misnamed as the rasberry is overwhelmed by the grapefruit. Think alcoholic ruby red grapefruit juice.

Thanks to Jason (and dimenhetfield) for making this one happen. Served in a Glunz taster glass.

A - Quick-dissolving white foam settles to a thin ring, leaving no lace. Hazy bright pink body.

S - Under-ripe raspberries, lemons, slight yogurt, hint of sulfur, touch of sharp wheat, and some acidity. Quite impressive - I just couldn't stop bringing this one to my nose.

T - Unfortunately, the taste isn't quite as amazing. It's still quite enjoyable - tastes mostly like raspberry lemonade but without the complexity and depth of the aroma. I was surprised to see this was 5%. Great fruit character, but could use more sourness.

M - Lower carbonation, light body, very dry, but with minimal pucker or tartness.

D - I liked this quite a bit, and I'd love to have it again. I doubt I'll get a chance unless I go to Florida though. I could drink a ton of this, but lowering the ABV a little and making it a bit more sour would make this world-class.
