a really awesome raspberry sour beer here, akin to some of the stuff crooked stave has been releasing with raspberries, some funk, a nice woody profile, plenty of acidity, but almost entirely defined by the intensity and flavor of the raspberries. the beer is crystal clear ruby red, a real gem to look at, bright as can be and really colorful, under just a half inch of mostly white fluff. it smells like raspberry from top to bottom, super fresh ones, with some tang and some more jammy preserved sweetness. there is also a little musty oak here, and some acidic sourness, but the fruit is by far the strongest element. thats true in the flavor too, like if it aged well it would turn into lambic, with more woody funk and layers of yeasty weirdness to it, but for now its young and clean on the yeast side, just a little bit of funk along with the sourness, but a lot of residual sugar from the raspberry to balance some of that pucker, although the fruit also has a bit of a tang in its own right. impressive depth of flavor here, lots and lots of raspberries, as intense as they get in beer. good carbonation and a somewhat long finish, mellowed out by a little oak and again the sugars. very delicious beer, great expression of raspberries in a wild beer, but maybe lacking just a little bit of the complexity and wildness we have all come to know and love from casey releases. i think more time in the cellar would resolve that pretty easily. top quality beer, delicious fresh fruit flavor.
