3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Wild gamy aroma plus raspberry.
Color is a dark, somewhat cloudy reddish brown. Head is fairly large, though not long lasting, off-white but a bit reddish head.
Taste is very dry and quite tart.
Palate is dry and acidic; fairly lively carbonation and a very long, dry acidic finish.
An excellent example of the style but just not a style I particularly like - too dry and acidic for my taste. The gamy aroma of the wild yeast is interesting.

On tap at Sabatini’s Bottleshop in Exeter, PA. It pours a reddish amber color with a pinkish off white head. The aroma has strong notes of raspberry, both sweet and tart. Very fresh and authentic. Not too funky. The flavor is the same. Strong raspberry character dominates with some nice light toasted malt underneath. Very sour and clean. It has a substantial body, but not sweet. Awesome fruit character. Loved this one.

Excellently balanced flavors - sour, fruit, malt all present in enjoyable amounts. Beautiful color, too. The smell is pleasant, just fruity enough with a great tang. This beer gives the best sours a run for their money.
