A bottle to the face after bar tending new years eve. Couldn't ask for a better beer to be the first to drink in 2012. I'm a newbie reviewer, and prob shouldn't since I'm in the industry but I love this beer i thought i might as well.

S: Murky ruby red color, not a solid color throughout, pours out of the bottle lighter than appears in the glass. Almost glows.

S: sour sour raspberry

T: Uniquely sour. The flow of the beer taste is sour that fades to raspberry, the raspberry flavor increases till the end at the same tine the sourness kicks bak in and increases until the end as well. the after taste is the sweet raspberries making you want more, and then you get the whole sour roller coaster again. Amazing. Absolutely amazing.

M: Thickish, acidic,

O: One of the, if not the most sour beers I have had. Like i said earlier, unique. This is the 2010 and there is a gold sticker that reads "Though its in the nature of a wild ale to be different each year, this year's vintage is exceptionally different, and may not occur again [I really hope it does]. Riserva 2010 is a very sour ale. Tarter than ever, the beer's acidity has inhibited carbonation which is very low. The taste is fantastic! Notes of cider vinegar mingle with an assertive berry palate. Cheers!" About sums it up. If you love sours like i do, this will be the beer you hope the next sour you land will live up to.
