3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours red in color with a big light pink head. Intense raspberry smell to this one. There is quite a bit of vinegar, too, however. Maybe a touch of acetone. The fruit aroma is very good, but it is diminished a bit by the flaws. Some lemon and grass in there as well. The flavor is similarly raspberry-heavy, which I suppose is the point. A nice bite of vinegar and lactic acid which give this an assertive tartness. Some acetone is still present on the palate, however.

On tap at Dark Horse takeover at Crunchy’s...A nice red color, smell was hard for me at first because it smells very much like vinegar. The taste is just wow I didn’t know a beer could be this sour. If anyone remembers them, to me it was like Warhead candy in your mouth. Great raspberry flavor though with a slightly acidic burn going down.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(750ml bottle thanks to bu11zeye) pulpy appearance, viscous body just by appearance, bits floating in it, a few bubbles and very cloudy. Nose of raspberry pulp/puree, funky, wet wood, smells tart too. Taste is very tart raspberry pulp, a bit acidic, grainy, thick viscout body with a decent linger. mildly acetic finish.
