I love the raspberry flavor with a little oaky after taste! It looked like a pretty dark red. I would definitely recommend this beer.

on-tap, maduro, 2 pours

appearance: served in a pint and also an awesome bells tulip - garnet body, light beige head, good clarity

smell: tart, oak, fresh raspberry, funk

taste: This was good stuff and it's no wonder the keg kicked quite quickly - funky tartness throughout, great pulpy raspberry presence, oak, bread

mouthfeel : good carbonation, nice puckering tartness

overall: very strong variation on the Wild One

On tap at Hunahpu Day. Served in a wine glass.

Appearance - Dark red and brown body. Small white head.

Smell - Strong raspberry. Oak. Some sweet maltiness and a lot of acidity.

Taste - Very nice. Strong sour raspberry. A balancing caramel malt sweetness. Oaky finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Moderate sourness.

Overall - Excellent. Well made. Glad I got to try this.

Had this on tap at Savor NYC this past weekend. Pours a maroon color, little to no head on this. Has a strong smell of raspberry. Taste was surprising tart. I had this following Founders Rubaeus to compare the two and I was surprised by how much more tart this one was.

It was still a very enjoyable beer to drink, would definitely have it again, but probably will not get my chance living in nyc.
