Re rate during raspberry sour tasting, batch 2013. Pour is amber orange with a pink hue and a small amount of tight white head. Nose is fleshy raspberry, strong and bright, hints of oak and vanilla, just a touch of plastic phenol, not much else. Taste comes together a little better and offers a touch more temptation, the raspberries are again bright and not sugary. Semi sour finish, notes of leathery brett, a hint of acetic acid. Probably best to drink sooner than later.

A-pours a mostly tranparent bright orange color with tons of sediment floating around in it. The head is white, dense and creamy leaving a fair bit of lace
S-the funk is right up front, a dry woody manure, oak and a touch of vanilla transition to citric rind and tasty vibrant sour raspberries behind.
T-the taste is more muted than the nose. the funk is slighlty toned down. the manure funk is up front, the oak is there and very light, all the flavors are slightly muddled as the sourness is assertive in the back mixed with tart raspberry and biting lemon. the sourness is slightly strong and the fruit isn't as vibrant as the nose. still decently integrated and nicely sour with a fair bit of funk.
M-lighter in body and lively on the palate. the finish is very dry and the sourness accentuates that. the body is slightly syrupy and grainy on the palate.
D-the nose is fantastic and has a great balanced and integration of juicy fruits and nicely done funk. the flavor falls slightly short of that in that the fruits are more mild and the funk is slighly muddled. still reasonably good flavor, the balance is there it just seems to become ever so slightly messy.
