Draft. It's a sweet tart. The Brett is not as prevalent in its typical bathroom form. I love raspberry so it's solid on that front.

On tap at Ridgewood (Raleigh).
Raspberry red with no head. Raspberry aroma. Sour raspberry taste.
For those who like sours or fruity beer - enjoy. Sadly, I am not a fruity not sour beer fan.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the barrel-aged tasting at World Of Beer-Cherry Creek in Denver, CO during GABF week. Copper-colored pour with a very short head. Aroma of tart fruit and oak. Great flavor of tart fruit that is not distinct as raspberry. White wine characteristics are also detected. Lingering sourness on the palate. Well done, of course.

Bottle 65 cl, bottled on 11/12/11. Clear reddish amber in color. Strong raspberry notes in aroma at first. Tart raspberries in taste, but also some nice wooden oaky notes, almost like sweet vanilla kind of ones here. Nice vanilla in aftertaste as well.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2013 On tap at the annual CBS picnic. I believe that this was a single barrel, fruit infused version. Self served to a plastic shaker showing an orangy red color, with almost no head foam or lacing. The nose was expressive raspberry, light spice, barrel hints, and yeasty funk & tartness. The flavor was similar, with some vinous nature, and concord grape hints. Nicely astringent, almost sour, dry, but the carbonation was flat, and the resulting mouthfeel was skewed. Iíve sampled this normally spritzy Wild Ale since itís inception at many GI functions, so maybe this wasnít the best time for an honest appraisal, and maybe the fruit infusion affected the outcome? I will keep vigilant. Shared a 750ml. bottle the next go around, which was poured to snifters. Color and appearance were as before, but the effervescence and resulting mouth feel were perkier, and a more harmonious balance of notes was noticed across the board. +.4
