Riserva pours an odd pink shade of amber, which is obviously due to the raspberries. There is a nice light pinkish head that retains well. Mildly cloudy.

Nice aroma of fresh raspberries and tart vinegar. Undercurrent of earthiness, but the fruit really shines through nicely with some sweet vanilla highlights. The taste carries over equally well. Initially sweet, but the tart acidity comes through well. The oak comes and goes with some vanilla and coconut.

Mouthfeel us nice with a rich creamy carbonation. Excellent American wild ale and use of fruit. Not too sweet or overly tart. Falls just short of the depth and complexity of the finest Belgian wild ales.
