Bottles, batch 1 & 4. Batch 1 was the better of the two IMHO. Clear garnet pour with an off white head. Huge raspberry nose. Like eating a raspberry. Average body and mouthfeel.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
500 ml bottle via Texas trade - thanks again, Brian! Blend #1 from March 2013. Pours a deep, clear ruby red with a small pink-tinted head. In addition to a big, rich raspberry character to the aroma, there’s a heavy floral quality, mostly taking the form of rose petal. Earthy, too, with wood, wheat, and spice. Flavor of heavy raspberry, bringing more tartness and jam than the nose, along with oak, earth, florals (more rose petals) - nice in its simplicity. Light-medium bodied, with a rich, sweet, tart, jammy, earthy mouthfeel. Modest carbonation. Lovely raspberry sour. So well-made.

500 ml bottle with from a trade, thanks Santin! Pours a deep red with small ring lacings. Nose has some light balsamico and raspberries and more raspberries. Taste is jammy with tons of raspberries and some light tartness. Beautiful balance between the tartness and the sweetness! Beautiful bottle and label as well. The best sour I’ve had to date.

Dark burgundy thick pour. Vibrant aroma and flavors of tart raspberry and oak. Thick raspberry mouthfeel coats the tongue with a dry, pucker finish. Love this!

Bottle, B1, pours dark red, aroma is fruity and funky. Taste like a raspberry smoothy, with a sour funk finish. Loads of raspberry in the taste. Overall not mind blowing as I had hoped but still a very solid constructed beer

On tap at CBC 2014. Deep red with pink head. Aroma and taste of raspberries, sour, fresh, very nicely balanced with nice oak and brett notes. Top notch!

Given to the CK bar staff by an extraordinarily generous patron. Man, this stuff is so close to deserving its rating, but one thing was lacking for me. To begin.... cloudy vibrant ruby pour, minimal head. Nose and flavor are absolutely lovely, with puckering raspberry, citric acid, delightfully sour but very little vinegar. Palate was a deal breaker for me. Struck me as woefully thin, and not in the drinkable and delightful kind of way. Almost glorious, but that hurt it a bit for me. Still, a pleasure.
