3.75/5 rDev -12.4%
Bottle pour at the post-FWIBF bottle share held at the Adelaide Inn in Paso Robles, CA.
Pours a murky reddish-brown with a foamy khaki 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 with malt, fruit, acidic, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with sour malt and fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty but has a slightly better sour presence in the smell to me.

Reviewed from notes:
On-tap at the TRB. Tulip.
A: Served a deep deep cherry juice red with no head. Awesome color.
S: Huge notes of raspberry dominate the nose with very jam like and fresh berry awesomeness. Faint caramel and cherry pits come through alongside tannic oak. There’s a decent tartness is as well.
T: Follows the nose. A very jammy and fruity flavor profile. The finish is dry and sweet. Nice tart bite and some buttery oak in aftertaste. Mild caramel.
M: Medium body, dry mouthfeel, good sweetness. Very awesome overall. A raspberry lovers beer, not overly acidic, and not cloying.
O: I’ve like all of TRB’s beers, but this is the first one that really took me aback. This almost rivals the flavors of some of the greats from Belgium. Very impressive.
