’13 vintage bottle. Golden pour with subtle pinkish hues and a white head. Sour raspberry bouquet. Wowzers, that is one tart tata saver. Copious sour raspberry notes dominate. Undercurrents of caramel malts, oak, and vanilla. Maybe some vinous hints. Good body and mouthfeel.

Bottle from my boy Jarod, thanks man! Pour is clear pink with a thin pink foam. Aroma is sugary raspberry with light funk and light tartness. Aroma is wonderful. Flavor is sweet and tart up front with a distinct raspberry kick followed by more tartness and sweetness. Just a little NutraSweet flavor in there that i don’t love. Overall very nice though.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a very dark pink almost red color with pink head. Raspberries, and lots of them, with some oak, light fruited chardonnay wine, and funk on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes tart and dry. Rivals Atrial Rubicite from Jester King.

Bottle tanks to a trade! Pours a clear reddish pink with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a great sweet raspberry note with a bit of yogurt and a growing tartness. Flavor is much more sour with raspberry backed by a nice funk with a touch of yogurt.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Metallic orange beer; very well-carbonated under a very thick-set off-white head, lots of UFO’s. Raspberry, yellow raspberry, lactic acid, Bretts and other wild yeasts. Quite sour, lactic acid and lemon. Finish is more mellow, mals. Lemoncookies, no sweetness; Dry, dry-out effect, long-lasting flavours. Very nice - as expected, maybe. Yet, I preferred the 2012 version. Many thanks to M & L V.!

Draft at Monks. Clear candy pink pour that nearly glows. Lasting white foam. Strong sweet and sour raspberry. Green grapes. Bit of pink vinyl. Slightly different character that past versions have had.
