Pour is clear deep blood red with a white head. Nose is big time fleshy cherry and cherry pit. Almost a cherry pie filling aroma. Cherry flesh up front, the bret and acidity take over and make a presence not seen in the nose. Good carb and a very dry finish on a meaty body. Drink now, acidity will probably take over in time.

Good but not worth the spectacular ratings bestowed on it. Enjoyed MVB and Nocturn more. Look was a solid deep red with pink hues, smelled quite nice. Generic raspberry lambic flavor nothing amazing.

Blend 2, August 2013

Poured into a pair of JK snifters, the color is a striking ruby jewel tone, really bright and saturated, just beautiful. Momentary pink foam that lasts all of a minute, then fades away to a still glassy surface. Clarity is bright, there are some tiny particles visible.

Noticeable raspberry aroma, a little bit leafy and a touch citrusy. Not as pungent as Framboise Du Nord we just had. Not all that funky or tart in the nose.

Bright tartness, clean and puckering lactic acidity, light raspberry taste. Palate scrubbing carbonation. Not a lot of depth or complexity unfortunately, but tart and fruity. Seems like any other raspberry wild ale out there. Not sure where all the hype stems from. Raspberry Ananke is far better.

Bottle shared at The Full Pint 6th Anniversary.

A - Hazy red with light red head. Okay lacing.

S - Oak, Raspberries, and malt. Mostly raspberry.

T- Raspberries with some sour notes, and oak.

M - Decent mouthfeel.

O - Not bad, and a good entry into sours for JK. Definitely not the best Raspberry sour out there.
