Man, if you had the reserve to hold on to a bottle of this for this long it's drinking phenomenal right now. Its just the right amount of acidity and the raspberry has tappered a little to result in a fantastic beer. This is definitely a 98+ beer right now. It's as good or better than atrial if you drink it right now. if you have no desire to drink it and still have some left please hit me up. I will trade you for it. Great job SCOTT!

Big thanks to SliverX for sharing this bottle...

A: This beer pours a translucent light red/pink with very little head. What foam does exist is relegated to the edges of the glass, and they fade quickly.

S: The nose is big raspberry, citrus, and familiar sour funk. This beer smells great.

T: The flavors in this beer are, as one would imagine, big raspberry. This beer is completely as advertised. A sour than has had a ton of delicious raspberries added to it. So good.

M: Medium bodied beer. This beer starts out with a blast of fresh raspberry and then the sour comes on to rip out your taste-buds. It finishes really dry.

O: I really enjoyed this wild ale. Loved the raspberry notes, loved the sour, and loved the funk. I will be "in search of" this beer, always.

Bottle: Poured a clear pink reddish color ale with a large foamy head with some average retention and some lacing. Aroma of fresh wild raspberry with some tart notes and light acidic edge is really nice. Taste is a super nice mix between some fresh raspberry with limited amount of sweetness but just enough to cut through some of the acidic notes with some tart and light oak notes also well discernable. Body is about average with good carbonation. Really well brewed with perfect addition of raspberry and some vinous notes well balanced.
