Dry and not tasting like a beer. Can't get much beyond the first sip. Mango chutney and burnt hair to a raccoon. Drinkable to a person dying of thirst.

Easily the worst CS beer I've had. Score would've been way lower, had I not mixed in the dregs with the last ~3 oz. Lots of issues, hopefully it goes the way of other CS problem beers and greatly improves with age.

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Pink hazy body. Small white head and a thin collar.

Smell - Light raspberry. Smells pretty acidic. More raspberry than anything else, really, but it still isn't very strong.

Taste - Pretty intense sourness. Lemon. Light grain flavor. Raspberry starts as a sour flavor but becomes a little more juicy. The finish is lemon sourness.

Mouthfeel - Medium carbonation. Very light.

Overall - A very pleasant, but simple, beer.

Beautiful strawberry martini pink blush with a bubblegum pink head. 80% opaque.

Smells very acidic and sour with vinegar, brine, stone fruits, and limestone. And yes, horse blanket. Reminds me of childhood there.

Flavor is sour forward, following with acidity, and then wild carbonation. The raspberry flavors mix with citrus and lime, some lemon, and hard water. Some baking soda also follows. Ends with squirts of lime and some tints of sour apple.

Feel is light and crispy, easy, and a drying finish.

Overall, it's okay, but nothing I'd be in a hurry to revisit. Nice limited brew.

Bright fruit punch ruby red color. Aroma is sour tart raspberry candy and a slight almost wine like smell. Taste is identical but really tart and extremely dry. Was an extremely well made beer but a little too tart and dry for my tastes

Pour is hazed deep orange with a hue of brown and white head. Nose is strong raspberry purée and a bit artificial with an assertive oak/wood presence. Some light hints of bandaid. Flavor has the bandaid and slightly artificial raspberry, albeit still fairly nice fruit. Oak is there, a bit more of the rich oaky flavor, moderately sour finish. Light body, nicely carbonated. The petite sours have been very solid.

I'm not a big fan of wilds and this one got a bit sour for me.
So no review.

Pink color and clear. No head really with a single steak for lace.

More sour than raspberry but true to form.

The taste is like a low sugar framboise. Lots of sourness. Good body with ample carbonation. An easy to drink sour.

7/1....pours a bright red, very bright, backed with a light pinkish ring of foam. Strong fruity nose, definitely raspberries. Fruity sour, puckers more than others. Tasty.

Pours a beautiful red hued pour with minimal lacing. Wild yeast phenols apparent on the nose, however not as much tartness on the flavor profile as I wish there was
