A: The beer is hazy pale red in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation, somewhat resembling watered down ruby red grapefruit juice. It poured with a thin off white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of tart raspberries are present in the nose; these smell a little like a raspberry sorbet.
T: Like the smell, the taste has flavors of raspberries along with notes of oak from the barrel aging and faint hints of sourness. No sweetness or alcohol are noticeable.
M: It feels nearly medium-bodied on the palate and is a little tart with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is surprisingly drinkable considering its strength because it hides its alcohol very well.

750ml c&c bottle served in a Town Hall Tulip. Thanks to BenTenison for the bottle. 2012 vintage.

A: Pours a hazy grapefruit color with a thin white head forming on the pour. It recedes quickly to a thin ring with no real left down the glass.

S: Sour raspberry with a sugary sweetness, almost like a warhead. Oaky with some

T: Tons of sour pucker on this one. Slightly cheesy on the backend with some oak and vanilla. Tart raspberry with some enamel stripping sour notes. Definitely some funky and sour stuff here.

M: Light, but extremely teeth grinding, enamel stripping in texture. It just coats your teeth and the back of your throat with an intense sourness.

O: A little sour and the teeth coating qualities were a little much for me. A little one note.
