4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
On draft at Bigwood 12/6/2012, from notes [2 of 11].
Muddy mahogany color. Big bubbly ring around edge. Thin patchy wispy/hazy head in center (like the last bit of fog from a dry ice machine). Sweet dark fruit aroma when swirled, otherwise tart raspberry. Not quite floral, but something bucolic, light, and airy about this. Taste/Palate: I wish I liked eating fruit more, because my vocabulary is sorely lacking, and all I can say is there’s more than raspberry but I don’t know what. The finish blossoms beautifully after a bracing tart start. Really amazing finish reminiscent of cherry/raspberry pie. Great lively carbonation and perfect mouth coating. This is beautiful. I can’t believe how it really seems to bloom in my mouth during each sip.

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.
