4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle… This beer rocks!… Hazy dirty-orange ale with a mid-sized, fizzy, white head. The nose is funky, acidic and fruity – raspberry and a suggestion of strawberry. Full-bodied and very effervescent. The flavor is fruity and sweet, but also nicely tart and a touch funky. Finishes crisp, fruity-sweet and then quite tart. This one is going to become more sour and funky with age. World class beer courtesy of northernbrews. Thanks, Jeff!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this handbottle.
The beer pours a hazy pinkish-red color with a white head. The aroma has a lot of sourness to it as well as some raspberries and some light funk. The flavor is a little bit different. I get a lot of sour and tart strawberries as well as some more of the barnyard funk that I got in the aroma. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A nice American-made sour beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: APR 18, 2011 Bottle: The aroma is dominated by sweet strawberries. There’s a hint of vanilla and the raspberry is virtually non-existent in the nose. It pours a hazy brownish-orange with a small off-white pink-tinted head that quickly fades to a thick ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts moderate-strongly sweet with strawberry. The finish has a sweet and tart raspberry presence with a touch of vanilla. The raspberry is significantly more prominent in the flavor compared to the aroma. Medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation and a somewhat sticky mouthfeel. This approaches Lindemens in the sweetness department. Overall it’s a little too sweet for me.
