thanks to duff27 for the share!

poured into Cantillion wine stem.

Appearance: opaque beer that looks almost identical to pink lemonade. Thin cap of white head that quickly turns into no head at all.

Smell: Lots of raspberries with a decent amount of lacto notes. Lots of cheesy and greek yogert funk.

Taste: Mild tartness. Lotso fresh juicy raspberries. Hints of that cheesy / greek yogert funk that was found in the aroma of this beer. Yeah its simple, but its still remains very tasty!

Mouthfeel: light bodied beer with low carbonation levels. Really refreshing and easy to drink.

Overall: This beer is conflicting between a really mellow sour beer with raspberries and a raspberry berlinner wiesse beer. Its hard for me to decide. I have seen both ends of that spectrum and it really in a gray area. The bottom line is this: its still a good beer brewed with raspberries.

The beer is a pretty shared of garnet / pink with a thick, white head. The aroma brings raspberries, cherries, jam. Tart and fruity. Nice flavor. Lots of berries with a light puckering sensation. I haven't tried Atrial Rubicite yet, but this makes me excited and optimistic about opening it. My chief complaint is the mouthfeel. thin and watery. the beer is enjoyable, but even a low abv/wild/Berliner type beer should retain a bit more heartiness in the palate. All said, this was solid. Everyone enjoyed it and the bottle was bone dry at the end of the night.

Batch 2

A- Light creamy head quickly disappears. The color is like grapefruit juice and it has a similar texture. Cloudy and yeasty, this is like fresh squeezed juice. 4.25

S- Citrusy, slightly tart and funky. There's a toasty malt aroma too that is great. 4.5

T- Tart, lemony and grapefruit-like, plus there's a grassy, earthy flavor as well. Really reminds me of Texas's rolling hills. 4.25

M- Light and refreshing with a pleasant tartness. The finish is highly earthy. 4.25

Excellent light drinker. Something I could drink all day.
