Bottle: Poured alight reddish color ale with a nice off-white head with OK retention and light lacing notes. Taste of lightly tart fresh raspberry notes is very pleasant. Taste is also dominated by tart fresh raspberry notes with light acidic notes noticeable and light oak notes also perceptible. Body is about average with good carbonation. Great trade-off between sour notes and fresh fruit notes with good overall drinkability.

Framboise for a Cure (2014) - Russian River Brewing Company - Santa Rosa, California - American Wild Ale - 6.70% ABV - This delicious wild ale poured a ruby red color, with a small pink head that dissipates immediately. The nose featured aromas of tart raspberries and white wine up front, followed by undertones of oak, apricots, and peach. The mouth was very tart, with flavors of juicy raspberries, Chardonnay, oak, and peach that blend together nicely. The mouthfeel was light bodied, with an enamel ripping finish that was quite refreshing. This was a solid offering from Russian River, but I prefer Supplication (I'm just a sucker for that beer) and Beatification over this one. 98/100
