Really hazy red color with pink head. Aroma has intense unripe raspberries with a hint of grassy yeast funk. Taste is quite sour, really fruity, some fermentation notes, berry pits spicy bitterness. Light body, medium carbonation. Overall it's a really fruity and dry sour ale.

Appearance: Pours the color of raspberry jam, with an aggressively lavendar head; the foam fades quickly to a ringlet, though it leaves a spotty pattern behind

Smell: Funk, oak and raspberry jam combine to deliver a perfume-like aroma

Taste: The sweetness of the raspberry fruit hits the tip of the tongue, with the tart aspect following quickly; the lacto aspect builds through the middle and then the funk takes over the finish; very dry and oaky in the aftertaste

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation; somewhat puckery

Overall: An incredible experience and one of the best sours I have encountered

Thanks, CheChe, for the opportunity

Quite tart up front, then mellows and is delish. Enjoyed, but liked their other fruited Sours more.
