On tap @ the brewpub. Looks like cranberry juice, a pink-ish red color. Taste is very tart, sour raspberry. By no means poorly done, just not really my style.

Reddish pour, light pink head. This is tasty as hell. I am very glad I finally got to try this. Raspberry jam, yogurt sourness, some good funk, lemons, yeast. Damn good beer!

On tap at Huna day. Red pour, solid raspberry nose, a little bit of funk. Jammy raspberry taste, not cloying or over the top. Nice and tart as well I had never had a bells sour ale and I must say I would buy it if they bottled it. Pretty good stuff

On tap at Roll Out the Barrel at the Eccentric Café. The pour is a beautiful deep red with a light link head hat a down to a ring leaving some sporadic lace. The aroma is very tart raspberry backed up by a great combination of sweet fruits and delightful sour from the yeast. The flavor is also very good. Heavily fruited with a strong sour background. Not a lot happening, but very good. The mouth feel is a touch light, but a great carbonation helps this cling to the mouth and enhance the sourness happening. The aftertaste is sweetly fruity, but still packs a sour punch. Very well done!

Aroma is sour, raspberry, some yeast. Appearance is a beautiful red, light red head. Taste is sour raspberry, like a raspberry warhead candy, some breadiness, yeast. Mouthfeel is perfect, a carbonation presence that isn’t overwhelming, and a sourness that took me aback. Overall, for a style I typically am against, this blows me away.

~5oz pour on tap at Maduro during GTMW. Mostly clear raspberry red color. Thin ring of off-white head, slightly pinkish. Leaves decent loose ridges of lace. Awesome bigger tart raspberry taste, nice big raspberry aroma, lightly spicy in a raspberry way, slightly woody. Medium plus body. Kind of slick. Good long tart cherry aftertaste to savor. Awesome stuff.

Sample pour at the Great Taste of the Midwest. Clear red pour with a nice head. Huge raspberry nose. Nice tartness, some earthiness as well. Raspberry in spades.

On draft at Stone House Inn. Poured a deep ruby with just a skim of head. Not very lively. Flavor is of funky, sour raspberry that finished a bit tart. Interesting and refreshing.

At the Barrel thing. Pours a deep violet with a pink head and a fair lacing. Nose involves some prominent wild berries and horseblanket, underlying root beer, sourdough, oak, zesty spice, and light pine. Somewhat sweet, waaay tart, lightly bitter. Medium bodied, fairly active, with a big jowl pucker factor and a long, tangy dusty tart hay finish. Really intense brew, definitely worth trying, and absolutely worth trying again. Nice brew.
