A 2017 16.9 oz bottle

This review will be with the caveat that my bottle had virtually no carbonation. I know they had problems with this causing several delays in the release so it wasn’t a total surprise, but the cap basically fell off when I touched it.

It is a deep pinkish rose color. Even with dump of the bottle I only got a few soapy bubbles, but otherwise it looks like fruit punch.

It smells wonderful. Tart berries and oak with a slight acidic aroma.

It is puckering sour with a much stronger acidic vinegar flavor than I would have guessed. Lots of raspberry that takes over once you adjust to the sour bite up front. Then you get the wine notes with distinct grape flavor. It finishes with some lingering oak and light wheat.

It is not a real sharp beer overall, but it has its moments. Fairly crisp and dry finish. I think with normal carbonation my biggest thing would be that it has a fairly dry wine quality to it.

Due to the flatness this was pretty much like drinking a spiked punch at a wedding reception. The raspberry really shines though with a nice amount of barrel character. Still pretty enjoyable.

16.9 oz bottle poured into a tulip glass.

A: Amber reddish body with great clarity, very little head soapy and small fairly lifeless body.

S: Tons of raspberries and some vinegar woven in with some light oak and a tiny bit of crackery malts.

T: Mouth puckeringly sour, the raspberries come in mid palate after the sour and vinegar dies down as it warms it settles down a little.

M: Dry with a bracing amount of sour and though it finishes almost with a little sweetness as it warms.

O: I thought this was a good beer, but not something I would want to drink a lot of it was too sour for me.

I've had a lot of sours and this is by far the most sour beer I've ever had. Difficult to drink it's so sour.

Dunno why this hasn't gotten reviewed much in recent years, because it's still delightful. 2017 bottle, poured into a Westy XII goblet. Even when not pouring the entire bottle, I can see some sediment and seeds at the bottom of the glass. A pinkish pour with splotches of color in the foam that remind me of a vitamin C packet. Fortunately, the rest of the experience is much better than the appearances would suggest. Raspberry tartness and biscuit for days, not the most complex sour but a really bright and flavorful one. I think I enjoyed it more on tap at the brewpub than from the bottle, but either way, it's one of the best raspberry sours I've had.

Pale salmon with no head.

Aroma is both raspberry gummy and also fresh fruit that is slightly sharp and seedy. A zest of lemon is sprinkled in, but this is not as sharp and popping or herbal as Houndstooth.

Seedy oak and raspberry lemon are the primary flavors, with toasted sesame seed developing as it warms.

This is a bit acetic for me, with a thin to medium body, low carbonation and sharp sting on the semi-dry swallow.

22 oz bottle. Golden/rose colored body with a spritzy, fast dying head. No lacing or retention. Lactic aromas, raspberries, pale malts and funk. Flavors aren't as "sour" as I was expecting but there is some nice pucker, raspberry is there, too. Good, but I am thinking this might be past its prime.
