750 mL bottle. Clear deep golden. No indication of fruit. Smells of raspberry, honey, vinegar acidity. Tastes of sweet honey up front, but immediately becomes very sour. Strong vinegar and sour apples. Some raspberry, but it's indistinguishable from the vinegar at points. Medium heavy. Unfortunately it's way too vinegary.

Pours a clear gold orange and smells of tart raspberries and another fruit (I assume the loganberries). The beer starts quite crisp and berry tart, but there is a pretty big acidic sour punch on the end that I don't get nearly as much from normal la tache. A bit of a disappointment compared with the other wonderful Ale Apothecary beers I've had thus far.
