Very satisfying raspberry sour, excellent scent and taste of raspberries but much more sour than sweet which is definitely my preference.

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.

375ml bottle dated March 2015. Served in a stemmed glass.

Lighter, hazy brownish-pink body. I know the colour combination seems inexplicable, but it's definitely a muddy pink type. One finger white head that is short-lived, minimal retention, no lacing. Smells primarily of raspberries, oak, lemon zest, lactic acidity, fair amount of leathery brett. Not particularly jammy, more nice and dry. Flavour is primarily dry oak, citrus zest transitioning to a brief grainy sweetness with a hefty raspberry flavour on the latter half of the palate that transitions into a lemon acidity. There is a good bit of raspberry but it goes nowhere near the point where it would be considered sweet. Nice dry acidity overall. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, lower in carbonation than I'd like, finishes quite tart and moderately acidic lemon, mildly grainy that lingers for a while. Pretty good stuff. Overall, I liked this one quite a bit; nice raspberry flavours, fair amount of tartness and acidity to it, decent complexity. I would have liked more carbonation, but as it is, it's very good and the raspberries seem to play well with the base sour ale.

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.
