A nice light frothy pink on the surface. Smells of raspberries, lemon, lactic, grass and some more raspberries and their pithy, vegetal character. This beer is very, very razzy. Plenty of raspberry notes, some dry tartness, lacto tartness, some gain and peppery sharp notes. It’s tart, but has a hollow middle for me. Medium on thin bodied with moderate on hi carb and a semi dry finish. This one is good, clean and approachable.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

2013 vintage. Tulip glass.

A: Pours light pinkish, but looks pale/golden in the glass, with two and a half fingers of pillowy foam which deflates at a glacial pace. Crystal clarity, excellent retention, and nice streaks of lacing.

S: Barnyard funk, earth, and minerals are the dominate notes, along with a little light raspberry.

T: Clean tasting, with light raspberry, then mouthwatering light/moderate tartness, moving to a little more raspberry on a lightly sour finish.

M: Medium body and carbonation, slight creaminess to the texture.

O: Easy drinking, tasty, refreshing, and a good level of sourness. A solid effort overall, though nothing out of this world, and not substantively better than their (excellent) shelf sours.
