This is a malty smoked razberry ale, "Guaranteed not to put your eye out!"

On tap @ Depot Street Brewery tasting room. Pours a medium to dark clear brown amber, a little darker than expected, with a slight creamy head and nice lacing. Hint of raspberries upfront in the aromas with then a nice mild smokiness, toasted malts, and a very slight sour-type nose. Taste is light tart berries in the very front then the slight smokiness comes through. Complex, with a very slight Flemish Red likeness, but also like a brown ale and then some bitter in the finish. Wickedly different, very good. I wouldn’t want it in big doses but a pint here or there is great.

Draft at Brewgrass. Garnet tinged brown body with an off-white head. Funky sour aroma. Soured fruit. Slightly tart flavor that goes into a dry finish without achieving full sourness. Doesn’t really go anywhere. Not fully sour, not hoppy bitter, not sweet. Just kind of strange.

Well, this was easily the most WTF beer of Brewgrass 2010. Definitely a "everything but the kitchen sink approach. Smokey? Check. Sour? check. Fruity? check. Not really sure how it all meshed, though. I liked it, regardless.
