2014 vintage

A: Raspberry red, appropriately.

S: Wet straw, dusty hops, saison funk.

T: Slight tartness, berry sweetness, a wash of raspberry juice.

M: A hint of syrup but with a mostly dry finish.

O: Good, but not quite befitting the frenzy. Happy to have tried it, happy to have not had to deal with the craziness at Russian River to do so.

Really nice Framboise. The sourness/tartness is actually pretty well balanced by the raspberry flavor. Malt is barely there but also helps to balance. Overall its sour yet smooth and refreshing. I think the hype has made this beer into a little more than it is, but it's great and I would happily have this whenever given this chance. Definitely, try it if you can but don't trade your whole cellar away for it.
