Cloudy brown beer. Light semi dry palate with moderate carbonation. Raspberry that is neither sweet nor tart providing a mellow start. A little mild sourness kicks in along with a balancing unsweet oak. Finshes mellow raspberry and warming alcohol. Best when a little chilled this one. Enjoyed it - not too bloody sour!
