4.55/5  rDev +12.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

2009 vintage thanks to fbm115.

pours a deep amber, almost light brown with golden edges when backlit. The head is off white and recedes so quicly I barely got a look at it. The center of the beer continues to bubble at the surface long after its poured. strong tart raspberry smell that is at one and the same time enticing and repugnant. super funky (whatever that even means). lots of alcohol in the nose.

mmm. awesome. this is quickly becoming one of my favorite styles. very impressive. very tart raspberry all the way through. strong alcohol in the middle and finish. lots of oak up front and in the aftertaste. ridiculous sourness. perhaps a little sweet for the style, but I dont mind. overall, its just bursting with awesome fruitiness (raspberries and strawberries especially). great beer.

mouthfeel is medium-bodied and a little under-carbonated (cant believe i just said that). drinkability is great. at 11.4%, I'll be drinking all 750mls no problem.

Picked up a bottle of this on the recommendation of both bartenders at Always Ron's in hagerstown. They absolutely nailed it. I gave it a perfect taste, and perfect overall as I could not believe the ABV. Unbelievably drinkable for over 11%. Awesome, hope to buy again despite the cost.
