Damn! This is so complex I'm not sure where to start. The aroma is sour, woody, funky. The flavor is fruity, dry, and tart. Really good.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle thanks to PreisMJ! Pours deep, hazy red with a small, short lasting, pink head. Aroma has EXTREME amounts of raspberries. Unripe, ripe, tart, and funky raspberries. Really fresh, but with an almost jam-like sweetness to it. Taste has first of all lots of the ripe berries, but with a lovely, crisp tartness. Vinegar, a little rosé wine in the taste, dry bitter wood, leaves you with a perfectly cleansed, sour after taste.. Very big taste compared to many other sours. Pretty full body for style and ABV, but with a crisp carbonation and a fresh sourness. Good stuff!
