4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
12.7 oz. brown bottle. An unclear reddish brown with a fizzly head. the aroma is partially sweet but intensely sour with a good amount of berries. Like a field of fresh rasberries. The taste is mouth puckering sour with some sweet coming from the rasberries. The berry sweetness seems to add a nice character to the intense sourness. this cured my sour fix for the weekend. The carbonation is high with a fizzy mouthfeel. I really hope this makes it into some distribution because this is great. One of the most sour beers out there.

From the 3-4 oz sampling still available after itís top popped and spewed all over my bathroom, ALL OVER, I must say I am pissed I didnít listen to the warnings about this gushing problem because this beer is top notch. An amazing sour quality to it tagged by a fantastic raspberry sweetness. Excited to see how the other 5 manage over some time, but what a pleasant start.

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 thereís more than raspberry but I donít 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 canít believe how it really seems to bloom in my mouth during each sip.

From: KnB Wine Cellars in Del Cerro (San Diego), Calif.
Price: $7.00 (Wednesday deal)
Purchased: Aug. 7, 2013
Consumed: Aug. 7, 2013
Poured a plum, reddish brown color with one finger of gray head when I got it. Light spots lacing on the sides. No retention.
Smelled dark cherries, plum, raspberry, Red-Hooded Slut shot, grape and cranberry.
Tasted even better than the nose. Got raspberry, cranberry, dark cherry, Sweet Tarts and Smarties. So smooth.
Medium body. Oily texture. Average-to-soft carbonation. Long, smooth finish.
I always think this style is good, but this went down easy. So smooth.

Draft at Toronado. Pours a deep red-plum hue with light whisps of pink head. Nose is big raspberry and tart lactic tones. Flavor is definitely raspberry smoothie with a nice backbone of lactic tart sourness, light fruits and hints of wood fill out the sweet thick finish. Full body and modest carbonation. A solid fruit beer with sourness to compliment without dominating.

UPDATED: APR 24, 2010 This is re rated after tasting this beer from the bottle and draft at the release. Wow what a beer. Murky reddish color. Sweet tart aromas. Medium in body. Fantastic sweet raspberry flavor very nicely balanced with sour characteristics. Good length of finish. Could drink this all night. Love it .

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
375ml thanks to FlacoAlto. Pours a murky kinda ugly red with a nice pink head that leaves a long lasting foam for the duration. Nice lacing too. Nose is lactic and creamy with subtle raspberry and wood. Flavor is quite bracingly sour up front before settling into a super dry milky middle and a semi sweet raspberry finish. Despite the puckering acidity up front the middle and finish of this beer makes it very drinkable. As it warmed more wood and malt body appeared. Very very good sour.
