Pours a deep cherry red on tap with bubbly pink white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of sweet raspberries and tart light berries, hint of malty sweetness. Taste follows, almost like the new glarus raspberry tart, sweet and tart, awesome fruity malt balance, not sour but like training wheels for sours. Really nice.

TheAlum (6860) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - DEC 13, 2015
Flight pour on tap at the brewery tap room (Bend, Or). Pours a hazy darker ruby red hue, copper glow and firmer haze. Frothy offwhite head with fluffy ringer that laces ok. Aromas are a touch seedy, raspberry and a bit of fruit. Simple bready sweetness. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied, some gentle sweeter raspberry, some earthiness, subtle seedy appeal, faint vanilla, bread and mellow biscuit. Backend is subtle sweet, tannic appeal and raspberry skin. A faint cocoa appeal. Solid stuff

Sampled at the McKenzie River Taphouse, Springfield, Oregon. And it was good enough that I bought a growler.

Salmoniform (1272) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - FEB 27, 2014
Poured from tap to glass. Reddish orange hue with white head that dissipated to a thin ring. Aroma is cranberry, tangerine, vinegar, wildflower honey, raspberry. Taste is dry with a sweet following and a tart acidic finish. Mouthfeel is refreshing with a light body and good carbonation. Overall this is a nice fruity tart brew.

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2014 On tap at Special Brews, Pours a reddish brown color with a thin off white head that leaves light lacing. Smells of raspberry, chocolate and slight cranberry. Tastes of the same things in the smell with a slight greatness to it. Mouthfeel is oily with light carbonation. Pretty good use of fruit and chocolate malt. I also like the tartness. Good beer overall.

No head, scotch in color, cranberries come through nicely, reminds me of a wine cooler in a way with coco notes. Lacks character...

Draft at 16 Tons Taphouse, Eugene. Pours a medium reddish brown, small amount of pinkish red head. Aroma sweet, berries, wheat. Body kind of dull, finish slightly chocolate. Interesting but not a world-beater.

Amber pour with a tint of reddish notes. Off white head. Berries, wheat, cracker malts. Flavor is berries up front, mostly cherry/rasp notes. A bit muddled but refreshing.
