Big thanks goes to the beer guy at Marty's in Newton for fishing this last bottle they had out of the basement for me. Poured in to a DFH snifter a murky strawberry color. This one looks more like one of my sister's cosmos than a beer. Almost the way a cocktail looks after some ice has melted in to it...very interesting. Nose is dominated by raspberries, but some musty cellar smells and green leaf also come through. Taste is also dominated by raspberry, bit of hard booze (reminiscent of Stoli Raspberry Vodka), earthy tones, great mix of sweet and sour. Mouthfeel is cool in that the carbonation adds a bit of burn to the boozy aspect of it. Still strikes me as being medium in body. A good sipper for sure, I would drink this with one or two friends. Boy, lately Weyerbacher have been batting a thousand with their beers. This one is another home run for me.
