4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a peachy pink salmon color with a trace of bubble. On the nose its ripe tart raspberry right upfront with some back notes of funky wood, jello, fruity pebbles and some lemon. On the palate its a perfect balance between sweet sour and tart. Round jello smoothness of fresh raspberries on the front sliding into a tart sour funky mid palate and a juicy fruit heavy finish. Nice touches of barrel funk and sourness... a real treat !

Bus beer at RBWG 2014. Pinkish red, no head. Smells like pink lemonade, with a whiff of balsamic vinegar. Nice clean, crisp citrus flavor. Hint of stone and vinegar, as well. Pretty darn enjoyable...

Bottle @ home with jcnielsen. Rotbox offering. Pours a bit hazy peach ruby appearance with little head. Cherry pie, somewhat tart, vinegar, rich raspberry aroma that is quite nice. Juicy tart raspberry, a touch cheesy, big raspberry flavor that is only moderately sour. Great beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear with a rose pink like hue. The head hugged my glass and was white, thin, sticky, and bubbly. The aroma had grains, wine like oak notes, a perfect balancing of tart and sweetness from the raspberry fruit, with a subtle yeast character. In the taste I noticed a medium level of tart raspberries, puckering citrus, sugar, and a mild level of malt flavor. The finish is crisp, very drinkable, and had a pleasant blending of flavor that didn?t linger with an acidic aftertaste like some beverages of this style. Overall this was a very well crafted drink. It was if a sour and a saison were blended together.
