Beautiful, bright pink with minimal head. Wonderful, fresh, sweet and tart raspberry aroma. Simple, yet powerful. Fresh and natural raspberry flavor with a candy- like tart quality. Medium acidity adds a comforting dryness to the palate while leaving the fresh berry flavor. So authentic, I can almost feel the seeds in my mouth. Moderate body. Bone dry. Well carbonated. Overall, one of the best fruit sours I've tried.

This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a hazy burnt amber/almost pink color with a lasting finger’s worth of white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. Stringy light/somewhat messy lacing roams around the glass. The aroma takes genuine red raspberries to bleed into a nice sour to tart to sweet authenticity. Subtle sweet grass, sly lemon rind (slightly bitter). The flavor is balanced nicely between the sweet to the tart to the sour - all between the red raspberry; fully all of the way on into the aftertaste and riding on into the finish, nicely. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionable to sipping quality about it. Carbonation rides at a nice speed hitting my tongue just right. Overall, what an absolutely damn nice authentic American Wild ale. It’s as if they put real red raspberries right in the beer.

L: pours bright and red, little to no head. Large carbonation bubbles. Nothing really special on appearance.

S: Fruity raspberry with a nice sour nice. Really exactly what a good sour ale should be.

T: Sour raspberry that is exactly in the right balance.

F: it has that simple sour feel of being slightly flat, full of clean fruity flavors and the alcohol content is perfectly balanced into this beer.

O: Extremely enjoyable sour. Not over the top amazing but nothing missing fron this one. Perfect for a nice drink on a warm evening. Highly reccomended.

My bottle says 4.5% abv. I opened my near room temperature bottle and it started to gush. Lost not a drop. Dark red liquid with, initially, a big head of pink foam. That died down leaving some islands and a ring around the glass. I smell raspberries that are tart, the woody notes from the oak and mild funk.I needed to take really deep whiffs to pull out the last one. Diving into the tastes now and my palate is hooked. The delicate tartness is in no way coming across as artificial. There’s a sour thing going on as well..akin to what a wine’s tannins bring to that beverage. Woody oak notes round off of what I would call a fine drinking experience. All at 4.5% abv. Light bodied and a bit bit watery in the finish but that’s a minor gripe. More than worth the $7.50 I paid. Oh, I almost forgot to mention. Mild horseblanket in the taste.
