Brazzle Sour Golden RaspberryBrazzle Sour Golden Raspberry
Notes: Some folks refer to the color of fool's gold as brazzle, a radiant hue much like the golden raspberry. A rare find and unique treat, these tiny nuggets are sweet and juicy. Brazzle Sour Golden Raspberry is aged in oak barrels with wild yeasts and 300 pounds of golden raspberries. Don't be fooled by the bubbly light mouthfeel and delicate raspberry sweetness. There's a subtle tartness that is not quite sour enough to make you pucker. But will prickle the back of your tongue leaving a crisp and refreshing finish.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

750ml corked and caged poured into snifter

A: a light head that disappears as quickly as it was poured light amber color good clarity looks like lively carbonation

S: vinegar, lemon, slight raspberry, some wine grape skin

T: mellow light vinegar slight raspberry taste not very tart more mildly sour than puckering

M: a little watery really clean finish

O: A little light on taste I like that it isn't bracingly sour but I wanted it to be a little more sour than that, if that makes sense. It really is a nice milder sour with a pleasant raspberry taste.

I picked up a bottle at 2nd St Discount liquors...$14.29.

Corked and caged bottle let out a pop when said cork was removed.

It sure is a golden coloured brew. Small layer of foam on pouring that soon dissipates to a few islands and a ring around the glass. Looks a bit on the hazy side.

Big woody notes with just as big sour notes from the raspberries. Through one nostril, I could swear that I notice some fruity sweetness. ;^)

Wow, the taste holds no undo surprises; fits the smell to a T. The fruit has such a freshness, tart and lesser..sweet, but I know the things been aging in the oak. Speaking of which, I dig the mildish, sometimes more noticeable, woody character.

Medium body? I think so. Good carbonation? Yes.

This is hella good!

Tasted as part of out first annual Sour Power Hour share. Wasn't sure how this offering was gonna hold up against offerings from Russian River, The Rare Barrel and Allagash. Pleasantly found this beer to be very worthy of being in the mix. The golden raspberry comes through as a subtle balancing note. The oak comes through much more prominently in this offering than in most sours. Gonna have to get me more of this one.

This is good but rather bland for a fruited sour, very tart but not a whole lot else. Pales in comparison to its brother friek

From backlog. 750ml bottle, April 2015.

Orange-amber, with a fizzy, snow white head. Tart and refreshing, but not as raspberry forward as I was hoping for.

Don't know if I have had another beer that smells so strongly of fresh raspberries.

A: Golden and moderately viscous with a moderate off-white head that dissipates quickly.

S: Moderate raspberry, lightly tart.

T: Medium sour yeast comes to the forefront of the palate complemented with moderate note of raspberry.

M: Moderately thin and crisp, nicely complementing the sharp tartness of raspberry.

O: Bold, sour raspberry beverage that goes down quite nicely without unnecessary sweetness.
