A: Poured into a Duvel tulip to a deep reddish brown topped by a finger of cream colored head that fades quickly to a collar around the edge of the glass with minimal lacing
S: Smells of raspberries and sourness with some toffee like sweetness, oak and funk
T: Taste is a nice blast of sourness up front with some juicy raspberries along with some funk with notes of horseblanket and some oak. Swallow is more sourness and funk with some lingering raspberries and oak.
M: This beer is fairly light in body but it isn't watery. The beer has lively carbonation that is adequate for the style and the acidity gives it a drying finish.
O: This beer rocks the house. Great sourness, great fruit flavors and some really nice complementary notes from the yeast and the barrels. Definitely a great example of the style that is a must try if you can find it.

Poured from a 750ml bomber into a teku:

Appearance: pours a combo color of like brick-red and cranberry purple at the same time. Carries a finger or two of sudsy, off-white head that dissipates over thirty seconds or so into nothingness. No lacing to speak of. Pretty turbid in color, no visibility through the brew.

Aroma: lemon rind and raspberry, through and through. Starts with the tartness and lacto scent, and follows with some sweet raspberry notes. Maybe a touch of oak? It's quite subtle.

Taste: reaaaaaaally spot-on with the raspberry flavor in this brew. Lemony, tart, and puckering on the start.....got some red-wine/balsamic vinegar in the middle, and a super sweet, but totally natural tasting raspberry punch on the finish. This is a beautiful ode to raspberries, no doubt.

Feel: medium-bodied with a lot of chewiness for a sour that clocks in at 6% and feels super crisp on the finish.

Overall: this was an excellent sour; though at this point I'm not sure that RB puts out a bad one. Drank it at the beach, and loved every sip.

This is a great beer in the Echo Series. The fruit worked perfectly in harmony with the acidity, and the oak presence was absolutely incredible. This is one of their best oak aged beers.
