4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2015 Rating 6100! 10/29/14. 500mL bottle with big thanks to djd07! Very deep red pour, almost purple, with a neat fizzy pink head that sadly sizzles away fast with no lacing. Otherwise pretty neato looking. I’ve been sipping this for awhile now and contemplating it as it starts to warm slightly, and discussing with Mrs. Owl. Overall, I dig it. Sour, raspberry, it delivers. Now, let’s dig deeper. Sourness hits my nose first, definitely sour, lactic, citric, raspberry, etc. Digging deeper, there’s a sort of weird meatiness, and surprisingly, given the low-ish ABV, a touch of alcohol popping through. Drinking and sipping for a bit now, the sourness and the raspberry pops and lingers. Pretty tasty, but perhaps a little one dimensionally sour. Reminds me a bit of a chalky Smartie. Tannic, bitter, seedy aspect, jammy. That meaty aspect is hitting me again. Lingers dry and tart with a borderline fecal funkiness. Interesting, tasty.
