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

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter. 2012 bottle. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Bright pink body with a pink head that settles to a pink collar. Beautiful beer.

Smell - Bright raspberry aroma. Acidic. A bit of wine and oak.

Taste - More wine forward. Less raspberry at first. Dry musty sourness. The raspberry comes stronger in the back end. Tart without being too sour. Wine and oak in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Dry, nicely tart. High carbonation.

Overall - The aroma builds anticipation that doesn't fulfill in the flavor, but the base beer is too good for this to be anything but tasty. Temptation is subdued, but holds this on its shoulders.
