COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
You might think this is a Russian style girly beer (a little Nabokov for you), but instead it is a very sophisticated Raspberry Belgian Ale. Fermented with brettanomyces (the little guys who give us that tart zing) and fresh raspberries, this brew is bright yet deep with spices and edges of the fruits natural tart quality to give it a white wine kind of finish.

Draught. Pours a reddish brown color with a moderate light tan head on there. Nose is very sour, with some refreshing dark fruity elements to it. Taste is very sour with a tough bite to it, though it ends up feeling fresh and refreshing. I like it.

Caramel, brett on nose. Orange copper appearance. Very acidic. Tastes of hydrogen peroxide. Good debriding agent. Will never get you sour people.

Tap at spitzers corner and at $11 was happy my work was picking up tab. Pours lovely red and great nose of sour cherries raspberries and vinegar. Tastes quite similar of fresh raspberries, sour cherries, malt backbone, vinegar, vinous notes, and some wood. Pretty great brew.

The aroma is sour and fruity with tons of yeast and funk. The appearance is amber with no head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is typical. Overall it fits the style well but not my style.
