look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Appearance - rich dark dark almost oil like with 2 fingers worth of reddish/ caramel foam. Beautiful pour for a sour!

Smell - bitterly sweet tartness going on. Wow, lots and lots of raspberry as well.

Taste - PUCKER UP! Lots of tart going on and funk all over. Slight sweetness coming from the raspberries as well.

Mouthfeel - this one leaves your mouth and you are puckered up, but wow is it good.

Overall - this beer is NOT for everyone, but if you enjoy a sour this one was great. Cannot wait to see how this one will age a bit!

this is easily the best of the origins variations i have had so far. the raspberries and whiskey barrels do a lot for this. in the base beer, i never really loved the type of sour it was. all front of tongue flanders red type acid, and not as much other flavors as some other crooked stave beers, but those issues are resolved beautifully here. the raspberries give it a pinker look than it usually has, but the bubbles remain prominent despite barrel treatment. the nose of this is great, fresh raspberries meet oak and vanilla, along with lactic tartness in high degree. the flavor is berries first, sourness second, a nice one two punch. the fruit gives it some sweetness, and make it have a late summer vibe. the sourness is still there, but the acidity seems reduced, and i like it for that. well oaked finish with some warming booze and vanilla properties, but i am not getting whiskey specifically at all here. i would like to try the other fruit versions, but this beer already has a lot of cherry flavors to me, so the addition of real cherries may not add as much (i have not yet had that version). the raspberry seems the perfect companion for origins. well carbonated, medium bodied, and the alcohol shows just enough. really well done.
