Hazy pink in a snifter. Modest white fleeting head. Lots do tart raspberry right up front. Dry and tart flavor. Tap list says it has some hibiscus in it. Also days it is a good introduction to the "sour world". True. It is tart but palatable. Lingering teeth squeeking feel.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
from the brewery: "Acidulated white wheat, raspberries and an inoculation of lactobacillus in the fermenter give this American ale its tart, fruity taste. Low hop levels let the special sour flavors dominate, and rice syrup helps yield a particularly light finish and body. This is a real summer refresher."
Had this on tap tonight at 10 Barrel in downtown Boise.
Poured into a nice tulip... The brew is glowing cloudy reddish pink... the head was fluffy with a pretty pink tinge... nice lacing.
The nose is surprisingly subtle.. huge raspberry essence, but the lack of sweetness keeps things from ever verging on raspberry soda.
Flavor is like a raspberry sock to the salivary glands... very tart with just a bit of lactic acidity... tons of fresh fruit with just enough residual sweetness to really deliver the fruit... nicely dry finish makes me want another glass.
light body with a spritzy carbonation.
I had a full tulip ... I probably could have had two, but that would be my limit... too much of a good thing.

On draft at the Bier Stein, Eugene. Pours a bright magenta, very little head. Aroma primarily raspberry, just a hint of yeast as well. Light body, very lively, finish satisfyingly tart. Nice; a really drinkable beer.

Drank at GABF 2012 in Denver. Pours a cloudy brown/red color with a small white head. A big nose of tart fruity and light brett. The flavor is light on the sourness or funk but big on sweet natural raspberries, a light dusty lemon bite. Good.

Tap @ OBF... Poured red with an off-white, pinkish head. Sugary, raspberry candied sweetness. Tartness and dry towards the finish for balance. Crisp, super refreshing. A lovely, vibrant fruit sour beer.
