Riserva 2014; hazy reddish-amber pour with light lacing. Opens up with a wonderfully bright fresh raspberry aroma and flavor fading into a lemon juice and lemon peel overshadowed by both astringent oak tannins and alcohol that is a bit unpleasant. The raspberry is a bit sweet but is not immediately apparent given the acidity. This is one of the most acidic beers I have ever tasted. As a sour beer lover, even my system is shocked. The carbonation is active and prickly. The mouthfeel would be rated higher had the tannins and alcohol not been so harsh. Riserva has some marks of greatness but ultimately it is not very drinkable.
