This is a tricky beer to rate.

It came out a few years ago and I never had it fresh. I has been a personal whale of mine since I got into the trading world and was lucky enough to randomly try some because of circumstance.

The beer is all about the nose. It reminds me of raspberry pie. Jammy is the most used term and it's on point. There is something else there, like a pepper or something towards the backend of the smell, but it blends perfectly with the brilliant black raspberry.

Taste was basically a stellar but clear aged fruited american wild. It has the same issues that older RR bottles have, but I think this has aged a much more gracefully.

In short, I have a habit of hating on beers that people want because they rarely live up to the hype. This beer is clearly past its prime, but one of the few beers that I've been more interested in seeking out after I've actually tried it.

Side by Side with VSB, Fencerow, Black Raz Bu
Thanks Tim for bringing this long time want

A - red, brown, pink colors here fairly opaque. Small foam head that recedes back into the glass.

S - One of the most natural and delightful smelling beers. Fresh black raspberries and funk here. Like someone picked them fresh blended them and presented it in front of you

T - Taste follows the nose here and definitely edged out VSB here. Tons of black raspberries tart acidic funk and a smooth finish

M - Light bodied crisp and clean, good amount of carbonation here

O - Overall this edged out VSB, although my first bottle of VSB tasted better than the one opened at this side by side.

Thanks again Timmy
