One of the best commercial raspberries on the market today, but very very expensive beer. Sour is just right for a seasoned sourhead like me, but maybe a little much for the sour virgin.

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!

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.

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.

On tap, sampled multiple times at 2012 Oregon Brewers Festival.

Hard to judge color due to opaque plastic mug, appears pink-orange, 1/2 finger white head small bubbles, some carbonation clinging to sides to plastic mug. Nose is a more tart than sweet, and not much sour nose due to plastic mug. Taste is divine, raspberries front and center, dry malts support the fruit, light floral hops. Mouthfeel is quite light, easy drinking. Wow. For fans of raspberry beers in general, not just American Wild Ales, but also Lambics, Mead. I'd like to see a barrel-aged blended version, this is an indication to the serious commitment of the brewer to this sour project. One of best beers I'll have in 2012. A real treat. Very Highly Recommended.
