(Draught) Pours a clear pale pink body with a medium off-white/cream head. Aroma of raspberry jam, wood, horse blanket, and subtle leather notes. Flavor of raspberry, pedio, white grapes, and lacto with a moderately dry wood finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Multiple pours at GABF ’12. Appearance is deep copper with a light pink tint and a small white head. Another funky aroma from Freetail; cheesy, waxy, woody, a touch of tannin, and urine with some raspberries rounding out the back-end. Taste is not quite as funky, sour fruits, raspberry, some strawberry, oak, grapeskin, with light earthy and waxy notes. Medium body with high carbonation. Another great sour from Freetail and I really appreciate the quality these guys are putting out. Well-done!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bright raspberries in the nose with some funky sourness and wheat. Gorgeous body is deep pink with a scant head. Flavor is excellent. Nice, young tartness that should increase with age given how well regular Ananke ages. Big, vinous raspberry notes are fresh on the palate with a puckering sourness. Crisp mouthfeel, well-carbonated, dry but not taxing on the tongue. An excellent job by Freetail--exactly what I wanted from a ’berried version of this beer.

(draught) bright red, ring of white bubbles. Nose of fresh raspberry purée, tart, nice barrel notes, raspberry seeds, light funk, smells great. Taste of fresh raspberry, light chewable vitamin, lactic acid, deliciously refreshing.
