Sour patch kids with alcohol, low carbonation, syrupy mouthfeel, smell is fruity and heavenly, taste is sour with some good bite. I wouldn't call it "refreshing" without additional carbonation, but it does give a great taste sensation than is atypical from most beers. Worth trying at least once.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear ruby red color with a small white head. The aroma is sweet raspberries. The taste however is sour raspberries. An average Berliner Weiss.

from the brewery: "Acidulated white wheat, raspberries and an inoculation of lactobacillus in the fermenter give this American ale its tart, fruity taste. Low hop levels let the special sour flavors dominate, and rice syrup helps yield a particularly light finish and body. This is a real summer refresher."

Had this on tap tonight at Bar Gernika in downtown Boise... I was told this was the only keg to make it to Idaho... Thanks Jeff!!

Poured into a nice tulip... The brew is glowing cloudy reddish pink... the head was fluffy with a pretty pink tinge... nice lacing.

The nose is surprisingly subtle.. huge raspberry essence, but the lack of sweetness keeps things from ever verging on raspberry soda.

Flavor is like a raspberry sock to the salivary glands... very tart with just a bit of lactic acidity... tons of fresh fruit with just enough residual sweetness to really deliver the fruit... nicely dry finish makes me want another glass.

light body with a spritzy carbonation.

I had a glass and a half.... I probably could have had two, but that would be my limit... too much of a good thing.

This beer poured a pinkish orangey color into my tulip glass. The nose runs true to the name with a pleasant aroma of raspberries. The taste follows the nose with a nice tart raspberry taste. The carbonation is much better in this beer than in the Cucumber Crush. In my opinion this is a pleasant drinking Raspberry Sour beer and I would drink this again.

Pours a very pretty ruby/garnet color with a crackling two fingers of a pink head that quickly goes away.

Smell is like a rasberry hard candy. Not a lot of sweet but maybe more towards the tart on the nose.

Taste is a very tart raspberry crush. Taste is almost like picking up a fresh tart berry from a bush and eating it. Taste runs almost into a wine like category.

Mouth is puckering and tart with a very dry finish that does leave some bitter berry background in the mouth.

If you like raspberries this may tickle your fantasy. Otherwise the taste may be a bit to berry wine like. I really like it and find it so easy drinking it really is great! Note to self the berry tart does linger a bit like jam on the throat as you finish this sucker. Good stuff indeed!

This was lighter than I like and almost feels a little under carbonated. But it has good flavor other than that

thanks to TATURBO for bringing this beer back from the West Coast!

Poured into tulip.

Appearance: light red with a slight orange hue. 2 fingers of white head that quickly drops to no head.

Smell: Raspberry jolly ranchers if there ever was such a flavor.

Taste: Same as the nose. Raspberry Jolly Ranchers! Really simple, not very complex but I dont care because it is seriously delicous! Moderate tartness and a touch of sweetness to balance. Lots of fresh raspberry notes.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Really effortless and drinkable beer. A little better than Semi-dry finish. Crisp carbonation. bright flavors. WOW.

Overall: Plain and simple...this is seriously under the radar sour beer we have from a brewery I have never heard of. What a treat! Thanks again chris!
