On tap at the brewery. Aroma is fairly raspberry forward with some lighter dark toffee and caramel notes with a hint of chocolate. Light acidity with a hint of citrus and pineapple. Light oak notes. Some cassis and cherry notes as well. Pours a murky, muddy dark brown with some red hues and a thick, small, dark tan head that recedes to the edges where it lingers. No lacing or legs. Flavor has a moderately strong acidity with a light sweetness. Some caramel and toffee with hints of chocolate. Moderately strong raspberry notes with light citrus and hints of pineapple. Hints of cherry and cassis. Light oak and low bitterness. Some tannins. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a nice dark sour with good raspberry notes that are balanced with the acidity and malt character. Acidity is well rounded and only a bit sharp.
