It pours dark red with not much of a head. The aroma is faintly fruity, with some cooked raspberries coming through but not as much as I would expect. The taste is fairly sour and acidic. Light body

500mL bottle from Sprayberry Bottle Shop (Marietta, GA). 12.99. 2016 release. Served in my trusty Phish snifter.

Pours a virtually opaque, orange-tinted chestnut brown with a rapidly whithering sand hued head. Within a minute of pouring only a couple small islands and narrow brim remain.

The inviting nose has plenty of raspberry pulp up front. Sour bread, funky wet wood, wine and chocolate.

A strong, sour blast of flavor hits the palate with every sip. Super tart raspberry jam, wine, acidic citrus, earthy funky wet wood and some vague chocolate. Somehow lacks any booze presence whatsoever and goes down quite easily.

Smoothly chalky, medium full feel with sizzly carbonation that quickly dissolves. Sour, lingering aftertaste of wine-laced raspberry purée with dashes of chocolate and wet oak.

Osa Frambuesa immediately finds a place as one of my favorites from Paradox. Amazing raspberry, assertively sour and all around excellent. I'll be buying more for sure.

Muddy burgundy with an off-white, almost pink collar.

Smell is cherry, toasty caramel and butterscotch.

This tastes quite sour of cherry, with toasted graham that is rounding, and a dry finish.
