Notes: Oak aged sour ale conditioned with raspberries. Bright, oaky, fruity. Delicious, ripe, red raspberries are intertwined with a balance amount of lactic acidity and subtle oak barrel nuances to round out this delightful sour ale.

Served from a 16.9 oz (500 ml) bottle into a Willi Becher glass; purchased at the brewery in Summer of 2020 (yeah, I went there).
A: Pour a hazy, tarnished brass to dark gold color with pink or at least rose gold highlights, a no more than one finger, white head, rim retention, but basically no lacing.
S: Tart side of tangy. Aromas of raspberry, cranberry, lactic acid, vanilla, and chardonnay grapes.
T: Tart and more semisweet than semidry. Flavors essentially follow the nose (in a very good way): this is what a raspberry wine should taste like.
M: Light to medium bodied with light to moderate carbonation.
O: An enormous treat. I am kicking myself for not buying a case. An extremely well designed, fruity, flavorful, gorgeously complex AWA. What a raspberry sour should taste like IMHO.

Bottle from the brewery in BK during the 2020 COVID pause. Pours an opaque orange amber with a flash of off white head, smell is intense sweet acid stone fruit preserve, marmalade, and hints of sour raspberry seeds, taste is warm acidic sweet malts up front with a blast of bright sour raspberries, finishes with a nice oaky dryness, feel is light, bright, and dry. An excellent assertive sour with a great raspberry flavor, probably one of the better of the raspberry sours that I have had.
