3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by MrPickles...thanks Andy! - Pours murky rosy amber with a thin ring of head. Nose is berries, a bit of tartness, and I guess some rhubarb bitterness. Malty dry bread underneath. Taste is tart and fruity with dry malt and raspberries. Not pungent berries, and with a fruity bitterness that’s the rhubarb I guess. Fluffy, well-carbonated body.

The beer has a dark ruby body with an inch and a half of bubbly, beige head. The head hisses and fades rapidly to nil, giving a still appearance. The aroma does indeed offer both raspberries and rhubarb, each easily discernible. Sour presence is evident immediately. Puckering and piquant. This is my second time opening a bottle of this, and I’m definitely enjoying it again. I perceive less bread crust / pie character and more berry wild ale. Nice balance between the rhubarb and raspberry. Delicious. I’m looking forward to enjoying this nightcap.

On tap at the Bruery. It pours a reddish auburn color with no head. The aroma is strong with rhubarb, berries and tart pie. The flavor is thick with sour berries, alcohol and honey. Nice sour fruity kick at the end. I’ve had a couple rhubarb beers before, but this one actually tasted like it. Good stuff.

750, capped. Thanks j! Pours a murky ruddied medium amber with no head or lace. Sweet fruity nose, tart and jammy both. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Seeds, flesh, and acid of bright highly present fruit. Long tart acidic finish.

Draft. Hazy reddish amber pour, with an dirty red off-white head. Tart and quite strong acidity, lots of raspberry juice, light crackery notes, lemon, and some sweetness. Nice fruited sour, I would drink this again.

Hazy slightly orange pour at the tasting room. A bit of white head. Slightly muddled nose. Taste is interesting and is growing on me. More bread and yeast character. Slightly tart, a bit of raspberry but the rhubarb gets lost.

Hazy amber pour with a white head. The aroma is full of rhubarb, raspberry and cranberry. The flavor is very similar. I get a ton of fruit notes as well as some toffee and a medium level of tartness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

damn, this was a great beer- surprised it isn’t being talked about .. . deep pinkish plum tan .. . some solid foam .. . rhubarb, raspberry, and jam .. . very clean with a nice tartness .. . well done and fun like a naked party with strippers, but clean strippers- you know. high end escorts who do other things than just escort you to the annual company dinner. hell- so high end they don’t even do butt stuff. i’m talking high quality merchandise, man!......still whores though...

On tap at the tasting room. Best beer of the trip, very sour and a big pie smell. Nicely drinkable, for my palate.
