3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Tonightís theme is pink beers. Itís dark pink with a high, mixed-grained, lacy, mashed-potato head. Nose is pungently raspberry with floral and citrus notes; it smells like real raspberries, not like candy. On the tongue, it starts out gentle, so gentle that I wondered where everything was -- then the sour and the berry kicks in. Itís a delayed reaction beer; it never gets terribly sour, but itís refreshing and bright and carries a lot of fruit very well. Really clean and not at all heavy. Definitely a lighter sour; very nice.

From provincial mix pack...maybe my favorite. Pretty purple red color, sweet, fruity, nicely tart, totally crushable. Summer perfection.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled on 2015.09.08; Sampled February 2016
A steady pour produces an eight-finger thick light tan colored head that I have to suck foam off of quickly, & repeatedly in order to not have it foam over the sides of my glass. The beer is a pale pink tinged, amber color that shows a hazed, golden tinged version of the same when held up to the light. The aroma smells of floral raspberries, a touch of hibiscus, as well as a solid backing of pale-nutty, cracker like malt character.
The beer is fairly tart, but not overly sour, and has a tart raspberry flavor to it that is a bit floral, a touch tannic, but definitely with a ripe fruitiness. The fruit character is a bit muted since the beer is quite dry. It is also light bodied, with an effervescent carbonation, and a clean finish that is helped along by the acidity. The malt character is not quite as noticeable as it is in the nose, but does add a soft, rounded, cracker like maltiness, and perhaps a touch of whole grain bread character.
This is quite clean in its character and is certainly a Sour beer, more so than something wild. With its clean fermentation character, this is clearly a fruit focused beer; it is dry, supportingly tart, and works as is, I wish this was the standard for simplistic fruit beers (rather than the non-sour, sweet, wheat beer based that started the fruit trend in the 90s).

Pours a dark reddish pink with a light pink head. Aroma of tart raspberries and farm house. Taste is also tart raspberries. Clean and simple. Lacks the overwhelming cloying sweetness or off-putting finish of many other fruity beer.
