3.55/5  rDev -5.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy burnt sienna color, with a soapy film that fades quickly; a few dots of lacing hang around

Smell: Cheese, sweaty socks and raspberry; heavy on the funk and light on the fruit

Taste: Fruit and funk forward, with raspberry and an underlying shortbread sweetness; the acidity blossoms, after the swallow, and burns the esophagus on the way down but that underlying sweetness is still there through the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with almost no carbonation

Overall: Can't say this is the most deftly handled sour I have ever tasted

Pours a murky orange-red with a foamy beige head that fades to nothing. No lacing on the drink down. Tiny particles of sediment are seen suspended in the beer after the pour. Smell is sour with unripe raspberry, earth, wood, acidic, and nail polish remover aromas. Taste is much the same with nail polish remover, unripe raspberry, acidic, funk, and wood flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and dry mouthfeel. Overall, this is an average beer with definite raspberry aspects, but the nail polish remover qualities and high sourness on this one make it hard to drink much of.

Serving type: bottle.

Serving Type: Bottle
Consumed: 2.6.16

A: 4.5 Pours a slightly hazy, pinkish-orange with a one-inch, white head.

S: 4.25 Tons of lactic tartness one the nose first followed by fresh raspberries, damp oak, mild vanilla, and vanilla. A bit of stewed raspberry or cranberry sauce comes through as the beer warms.

T: 4.25 Not quite a sour as the nose suggested, but still quite tart. A touch of oaky, vanilla sweetness balances out the sour raspberry flavor. Orange peel and spice show up next before some mild funk on the finish.

M: 4.5 Body is nice. The carbonation is on point though; it’s fairly low but small bubbles are everywhere making the beer feel light and lively.

O: 4.25 First Ale Industries sour for me and it did not disappoint. Bright, clean flavors and strong fruit presence. Reminds me a lot of some Rare Barrel beers in this way. I’ll be looking for more sours from them.

Cool pink appearance. Light pink, impressive. Aroma was mildly sour, raspberries in the background.

Taste didn't drop a ton of brett in the mouthfeel, chardonnay barrel wasn't too noticeable. Sour aspect far from complex, develops a weird scent down the pour. Good not great stuff. Could use some ratcheting with the recipe or bugs.
