3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub.
This was poured into a pilsener glass.
The appearance was a nice looking hazy dark amber, almost pink color. Nice frothy white head. Slow dissipation.
The smell had some tart cherries, semi-sweet yet sour. Underscore of citrus. Sweet to sour grapes. The taste was mainly the same bringing together the tart and the sweet and the sour. Citrus to sour cherry aftertaste. Semi-smooth wet sour cherry finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it. Carbonation runs fairly light. Sour harshness hits my tongue just right.
Overall, fruit beer or sour beer, doesn’t really matter too much to me as I’d say this was very good and I’m sure to come back to.

Sample on tap at Brewpub (Burlington). Pours ruby red. Aroma is a great mix of rasberry and cherries. Taste is bit thin unfortunatey. Some sourness. Probably more interesting in a pint. Good fruit beer.

Pours a light pinkish gold with a small white ring. Aroma is raspberry and light grain. Taste is more raspberry juice than anything funky. Tiny oak characteristics provide dryness.

First off, if your drinking it now, I’m jealous. You can’t get it anywhere but in the Vermont pub and brewery. I fell in love with sour mash beers there. The moment they set it in front of you, you can tell it’s something special. It’s raspberry red color is inviting. The nose is a blast of fresh raspberries and hint of oak from the casks. So smooth and refreshing, it screams beautiful summer days in burlington. At 6.2 percent, it’s like a beautiful woman who loves you then tears your heart out. Cheers.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2013-04-28. Crisp red Body small pinkish head fades. 3+ Fruity Aroma of tart raspberry is quite nice. Flavour is similar, tart raspberry dominates the flavour, fruity. Ephemeral cherry undertones are likely just raspberry in disguise. Average to light bodied palate, carbonation is a bit too low. 2+ Simple but tasty for a fruit beer. On tap at the brewpub
