4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour out of bottle at Winterfest 2012, nice pink-almost reddish pour with thin slightly off white head. Aroma hits you in the face with big, big raspberry, including the seeds and plant portions, with nice big funky notes with horseblanket and some basement, hints of lemon from the lactic but overall a nice big sour aroma. Taste lets down just a touch, with hints of funk and nice lactic notes but not over the top, some nice raspberry that is more restrained. Overall, well crafted.

750 ml bottle from goryshkewych- thanks again, George! Bottle 358/488 from the more recent batch. Pours a semi-cloudy pinkish peach color with a small ring for a head. Notes of raspberry, plenty of funk, lactic acid, sour candy, and floral notes. Light-medium bodied, with an acidic mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Awesome raspberry sour. Really worked for me.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
In short: A very fruity raspberry beer with a strong farmhouse character. Excellent.
How: Bottle 750ml, corked & caged. Consumed when probably 8 months of age. Bottle sent to me by tyler_mn, thank a lot Tyler.
The look: Cloudy pale red body topped by a small pink head.
In long: Big raspberry aroma, smooth semi-funky farmhouse notes, some red berries. Taste has plenty of fresh raspberries but also a surprising presence of tart cherries flavor (considering is not supposed to use cherries), lemony tartness, light oak presence, only a light tannins presence, an strong overall farmhouse sensation. Very satisfying beer successfully merging fruit beer and farmhouse ale with the barrels staying background. Easy to drink which is what is often lacking from this type of beer. An expensive beer, but whoever said the best thing in life are free was probably just a huge fan of little Heinz ketchup packets and individually packaged moist hand sanitizers.

Sample at WtWBA. Really pleasant raspberry sour. The fruit is dominant in the nose and the taste. The beer is sour but very drinkable. Fantastic beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ Armin’s bachelor party. Thanks Caleb! Pours a hazy pinkish appearance with an off white head. Somewhat tart raspberry, lemon, bubbly, somewhat funky, barnyard aroma. A bit juicy but quite nice, full raspberry/seedy, light cranberry, well carbonated, a bit citrusy, lightly funky, lactic flavor. Pretty tasty stuff. Thanks again to Caleb for opening this baby late in the night.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Big thanks to Dan for this one.
Appearance is great as is the nose. Very big raspberry and funk going on here. There barrel did this beer well. Taste is a little off putting very tart/dank but I taste a bit of cork in the flavor. I am enjoying this one though. Not sure if that cork flavor is because this beer is a little young (in the bottle) or if there was a problem with the corks they used. Regardless I think this is special and am happy to have experienced this beer. Merry Christmas!
