L: Muddy red maroon color, with very little head and no lacing on the glass. Not the prettiest beer.

S: Leads with a very strong note of raspberry, followed by a strong tartness and sourness, slight bit of vinegar near the end, and a slight note of vanilla.

T: Strong notes of raspberry lead the way with a note or two of blackberry, followed by a strong tartness mixed with a bit of a puckering sourness.

F: Lighter body and a little lower carbonation than expected.

O: This is a nice sour, lot of tartness and sourness.
