Pours a brownish-pink hue with no head - just a tight band around the shoulders. Huge raspberry aromas on the nose. Taste expresses raspberries, albeit dry and not too sweet. Mouthfeel is light in body with a lively carbonation and a semi-dry finish. Just an all around great framboise - not overly sweet with a pleasant dryness.

On tap at Hunahpu Day. Bright red. Smells of raspberry and a little bit of fresh green grass. Tastes of raspberry. Lemon sourness and tart raspberry. Oak. Medium body with medium carbonation. Dominated by raspberry and I maintain that these later batches don't hold a candle to the older versions, but this one is still nice.

750ml corked and caged bottle into a Surly teku. Shared with schen9303.

The color is great but everything else is not. Save for the pop of the cork, you'd think this wasn't carbonated. Nearly no head or lace. The nose more than makes up for it though. Huge raspberry notes. Lightly tart, sweet, juicy and seedy. Fantastically aromatic. Flavor is just as advertised too. Opens big raspberry notes up front. More sweet than sour though the pucker builds with a cobweb and wet wood funk throughout. Again, seediness imparts a light bitterness and almost a tart/salty presence. Fairly straightforward but again, the fruit presence blows me away. Body is light with moderate carbonation and a puckering, filmy, juicy finish.

Certainly one of the better Grrrz variants and definitely one of the better Framboise Wild Ales out there. This one's both worth trying and worth sitting on to see how it develops.
