3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at the brewery. It pours a copper color with an off white head. The aroma has some butter, oak and raspberry syrup. The butter is troubling. The flavor is better with some nice subtle raspberry, oak and balsamic. Pretty good despite the buttery aroma.

Iím a huge fan of Raspberries so how does this one compare? Also, do these guys only have "sour red / brown" beers? only a couple of goldens (which I prefer) maybe they have some american-lambic coming up soon but I felt like the list was all sour brown and itís not really a style I seek out.
typical sour brown with red hues. no head or there may have been one but it faded fast. really big raspberry pastry nose. Taste is acetic with more fruity berries and crusty dough finish is vinegar and sour candies.
