3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A: The beer pours a completely opaque purple-red color with a fizzy pinkish head that is poorly retained.
S: Pure raspberry on the nose. Really, not much else to talk about. The nose is dominated by the sweet fruitiness and maybe there’s a bit of raspberry soda. Only a mild sourness.
T: As with the nose, a mild sourness and lemon character that is almost overwhelmed completely by the intense raspberry flavor. There is a bit of grass to it, but it’s really a really simple flavor profile. As it warms up, there’s a slight acetic note.
M: The body is medium with a medium carbonation.
O: This wasn’t bad, it just didn’t have much going on with it. If you really like raspberries, it would be great. I was hoping for more sourness.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at The Bruery thanks to BMan1113VR. Clear, neon dark pink pour. Weak to no foam. Low carbonation. Nose is nice seedy raspberry, pretty jammy, moves to bright popsicle, flashes of Berliner-esque sour mash dough. Taste is juicy, seedy, bright lactic and citric acidity. Mild berry tannin balance. Really nice, refreshing, on point.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Woodshop #6 (and on my kegerator). Pours with a hazy red to pink hued body and a small head. Aromas are tart, sharp raspberry. Very real fruit. Very fresh and inviting smelling. Not much aroma beyond the fruit. Flavors are tart, very fresh, with a medium sour. All raspberries and absolutely delicious. Medium bubbles, dry. Very thirst quenching.
As purely a complex sour, I would not rate this nearly as high, but as a beer I want to drink, I thought it was awesome. Medium acidity, but real fruit and absolutely thirst quenching. In the heat this was more enjoyable than even Hottenroth, and that says a lot!
