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.

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.

Bottle share at Hunahpu’s Day. I thought I had had this at the brewery before, but maybe not. Tart but not overly sour. Raspberry isn’t overpowering.
