A tasty funky treat enjoyed on tap at Volo Funk Night II. Funky and fruity aroma. Very sour. Pink and lace appearance, the Belgian yeast giving it such. The raspberries really sour it up, I would want more yeast character to really make this one. Still a good effort and a great name.

On tap at the brewpub, described as a "Belgian Raspberry Sour."

Murky orange body with some pinkish hues. Light white head, leaves a small bit of lacing and minimal retention. Nose has sweet raspberries, a bit of berry pie filling and cheerios dust (you know at the bottom of the box?) and a touch of yeast. Taste has some light tart raspberry, bready malt, a bit of yeast and some lactic sourness. Medium body with some texture to it. Lower carbonation but sourness supplies a bit of bite. An OK fruit beer, but I'm not sure I'd reach for this one again immediately.
