3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Big thanks to cfh64 for the bottle. 22 oz. bottle served in a Half Acre snifter. 2012 release.
A: Pours clear ruby color with no discernable head. Light frothiness around the edges, but nothing special.
S: A lot more funk than acticipated. A little cheesy with some raspberry freshness. There is a mild tartness on the backend with a little wine grape aspect to it.
T: Tart raspberry upfront with an almost sweet tart candy like middle. Oaky and red wine-esque in the finish. Mild funk in the periphery, but taste was all about the fruit.
M: Light bodied with a prickly carbonation level to break tarness. Pretty drinkable.
O: The duality of the nose was something. Very funky in the nose, not as much in the taste and vice versa for the raspberry. I enjoyed this beer, but would have liked a little more balance between the nose and taste.

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.

2012 Bottle, bomber. split 2 ways at fridge temp and allowed to warm. red-pinkesh hues. Nose is bright fruit, minor fecal matter, a hint of tang soda and broken dreams. Taste is nice. very dry, semi-sweet finish. not a huge burst of raspberry but this is quite old now. hint of balsamic, great mouthfeel. has a nice backbone with spice.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle. lightly hazed brick red body with a shallow film of a white head and no lasting retention. medium to heavy oak with strong acetobacter and lactic acid aroma and flavor; mild to medium dryness and tart raspberry pulp flavoring with a strongly salivating acidity and a vitamin-like, chalky yeast residue left in the finish. overall it’s pretty well rounded, very quenching and satisfying washing of the tongue with the acid. nicely done. thanks Alan.
