3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Shared 12.7 oz. bottle poured to snifters, showing a slightly hazed, walnut/brownish gold color, with a modest & fleeting layer of tan head foam, with more persistence to the thin ring, and light spots of lacing. The nose was light yeastiness, raspberry puree, some spice, oaky/woody hints, and a tart to sour nature. The taste was similar notes, medium bodied, dry, with lively spritz, and a seltzery/wisp of salt character to the carbonation. Well done!

Bottle. Ruby mahogny in color with an off-white head. Funky notes, some raspberry and hints of malts and oaked cherries in aroma. Quite nice. Hints of vinegar as well. Tart mouthfeel. Funky notes again in taste, but the raspberries steps up here nicely after awhile. Red berries and some wooden notes in the end. Nice one.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared at a tasting. Thanks Jon! Pours a copper with a one-finger head of foam that lasts throughout. Very clear raspberry nose with oak and some light vanilla and grass. Light body with medium carbonation and a dry, sour mouthfeel. Hides the abv fairly well. A raspberry bomb on the palate with so much juicy flavor. A wonderful sour brown that accomplishes exactly what it sets out to do.

Poured into a wine glass showing copper rust with half a finger of clean white foam.
The nose shows big and heavy raspberry vinegar and a moderately intense oak background.
The palate is lightly carbonated and light bodied. Highly tart with a very good raspberry forwardness balanced by a harmonious and large oak and vanilla background.
