Thanks Markus! Raspberry nose turns plasticky quickly. Taste is promising: tart and refreshing, bold, fruity, delicious. Solid once you get past the aroma.

187 ml bottle served in a Cantillon Taster. Big thanks to time4lunch for the brew.
A: Pours a solid ruby red color with a chilled haze to it. An off white head forms on the pour and recedes quickly to a thin ring. No lace.
S: Fresh raspberries with a little dirt. Funky cheese with some light oaky notes. Tart berry notes with a little bit of sour pucker to it. Really nice. Light jammy berry.
T: Funky cheese, oak barrel and some raspberry pop. Tart raspberry notes throughout the middle with some definitive sourness on the back end. The finish is mouth puckering with a combination of sour raspberry, some white wine, oak and light barrel sweetness. Slightly jammy as well in the sweetness department.
M: Light bodied. Medium high carbonation with a sour and sweet finish. A little drying in nature.
O: This was absolutely delicious. I sincerely enjoyed this one and wish I could have it again. Really balanced across all fronts. Tart, sour and sweet. Wonderful.

Bottle I took to Andy’s to watch football with him, Paul, Max, and Pearl. Pours the same color that it is in the clear bottle – a hazed ruby tinged dirty orange amber with a very thin white head on the edges. Huge raspberries on the nose with a touch of white wine, wood, soft acid and a bit of musk. Softly lactic, beautiful touches of raspberries, gentle acid, smooth funk with a touch of cheesiness. Jammy and thick cheesy raspberries. Beautiful. Long funky acid and raspberry funk. Wonderful.
