Yellow body, mild haze, quarter inch of white head. Pleasant raspberry aroma. Mild sweetness tempered by medium sourness. A hint of funk. Simple and straightforward. Good stuff.

this is a great little beer right here, heaps of fresh raspberries bursting through in the aroma and the flavor, really fresh and ripe and tangy fruit, less jammy and preserved and concentrated and sweet, really dynamic, more summer than fall, but oh well. less red in color than many, just barley pink through the hazy pale golden, creamy white head on top but it doesnt last long, the fizzy carbonation breaks it down pretty quickly. this is incredibly sour beer, really puckery, citric and lemony, but a little caustic on the lacto, sour past the point of the sourness contributing anything else to the flavor, but not way over the line, and none of the weird vinegar sourness, its much cleaner than that. the fruit has only a little balancing sweetness, but there is some fresh cereal grain in here to dampen the acidity, and awesome carbonation to keep anything from lingering too long. this is bright and clean beer, maybe a little less complex than i like saison and wild beer in general to be, but i dont miss it not being too funky, i like the sort of streamlined tidy nature of the beer, and have been quite impressed with all of the beer i have had from toolbox so far. this is a little something different as the raspberry sours go, definitely a bottle to share though with all the acid!

Beautiful beer, cloudy orange with some pink hue from the raspberries. Tons of raspberry on the nose. Not getting a ton of barrel, but it's a nice lemony tart aroma. Super light and refreshing, with a great subtle raspberry flavor. More citrusy sour notes. Not getting a ton of barrel/oak, but it's a very nice flavor. Mouthfeel is silky smooth with very little sour bite. Great beer.
