Draft. Small off-white head with clear red-orange body. Aroma is moderately sweet, raspberry, some tart, light funk. Taste is just what the nose suggests. Light-medium body, light acidity. More a fruit beer than a sour, as the sourness is very mild. Not bad, just not quite as advertised.

Draught at Churchkey. Ruby red color, off white head, solid lacing. Aroma of fruit. Taste is sour, tart. Unfortunately I had a Rose de Gambrinus the night before, and this one pales in comparison, but it’s still a nice brew.

Wow this one was interesting. I got lots of sour cherries, raspberries, vinegar, oak and yeast in the nose. Flavor is quite floral and juicy. Tart but not sour. Fun beer.

Growler… Pours clear and dirty orange with a small, creamy, white head. Spice-rack coriander or clove and a mild cherry note in the aroma. Medium-bodied and watery with very little carbonation. The flavor is quite sour with a splash of lemon juice and a lesser spice component. Finishes tart and a touch stale.

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2011 Rerate from an older sample. Bright ruddy pour. The nose is loaded with cherry skin and lots of soft supple chewiness. Very intense tartness. Bright lactic acidity backed by some earthier flavour. Light funkiness backing the tartness. It’s quite clean and simple, but it’s very tasty. The acidity has really picked up in the intervening weeks. Some soft fruit skin astringency. Nice stuff. Tap at Blind Tiger. Deep clear red pour. The nose is pretty light with a touch of raspberry character. A light clean tartness and a quite lactic character. The fruit is definitely there but it’s got an odd youngness to it. A little bit herbal and quite dirty tasting. It smells okay but it tastes awful. 6 3 5 3 10

Tap sample at Smuttynose brewery in April 2010. Nice to get a pre-release sample. Only trouble was I misheard the name as just "Roostershire" so, without any proper badging to go on, I had some difficulty identifying the beer subsequently. A little surprised to see some relatively low scores here. Tasty juicy fruit - didn’t seem particularly artificial / syrupy to me. Plus a tart, modestly sour bite. Not the sourest thing I’ve ever tasted but enough to provide a decent counterpoint. I liked this a lot.

On tap at Frisco Grille as Short Batch #9: Pours a bright ruby red with a thin ring of spotty-lacing white head. Aroma of lightly sweet, tart raspberries and some lactic notes with some fresh oakiness. Starts a little light on the carbonation but has a nice viscous fullness with some fresh raspberry seed flavor and tart complexity before a drier somewhat sour oaky finish. Very true to style and enjoyable.
