3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is bright and fruity. There is no mistaking the tart raspberries in this beer. Some lactic acidity hiding behind the fruit. A light oak note is also present as is a touch of mustiness, but the Brett character is very low.
Pours a beautiful golden orange with absolutely zero head. Fairly cloudy but I did drive with this bottle a couple hours ago; definitely disturbed the yeast. A hint of a red hue in the edges.
Flavor is incredibly tart; it's so mouth puckering that its hard to allow your entire palate to experience this beer. Once you get past the acidity, there is a nice tart raspberry note and a touch of oak. Once again the Brett character that you might expect to find is very minimal. Finishes very dry.
Medium bodied with no carbonation which really accentuates the body of this beer. If there is any astringency it is hiding behind the acidity and is difficult to detect. Very low alcohol warmth.
Overall this is an enjoyable beer, but you have to really love sour beers. This isn't your typical fruit lambic. This borders on the level of acidity that I can handle and almost drowns out the fruit.

The beer pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma is full of funk and raspberries. The flavor is down the same road. I get a lot of tart raspberry notes, as well as some funk and oak. The beer is very dry. Medium mouthfeel and low carbonation.
