3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle (22 oz). Shared by Seth and his crew at Hill Farmstead pre-3rd anniversary bottle share. Hazy red with pink reflects, small off-white/pinkish head and little to no lacing. Aroma is of raspberries, chardonnay, cherries, fruit tartness, light funk and oak. Taste is slightly sweet and moderately to heavily tart with raspberries & other red fruits, chardonnay and oak. Mouthfeel is dry and winey. Medium body. Mouth puckering. Very good raspberry Sour Ale. I preferred it to the regular Ananke (also shared by Seth). Really tart. Really good!

22 ounce bottle thanks to errl. Thanks! Pours a translucent red with no head. Fruity, bright raspberry comes through in the aroma along with a solid tartness. Clean and fruity with a soft tartness in the finish. Really nice beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft for GABF 2012. Pours a hazy pink-yellow with a white head. Nose is tart raspberries, some oak, light funk, and some vinous tartness. Flavor is similar with a burst of berries in a house of vinegar, sour, tart fruit, vinous qualities, and bits of oak. Light to medium in body and a nice sour overall.

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!
