375 ml bottle, shared by Saeglopur, many thanks. Pours a milky orange with a quickly disappearing white head. Aroma of citric acid and raspberries along with some funk. Medium body with a medium to medium-heavy sourness and a low to medium carbonation. Flavor of lemon and raspberries, grapes, red currant, some woody notes and some tart berries. Dry finish and overall balanced and complex.

375 ml bottle from Beergium, bottled 08/08/16.
Orange-pinkish body, with a small, light pink head.
Aroma of fresh, sweet-sour raspberries mainly, medium wood, some vinegar.
Tastes of sour raspberries, wine barrel, vinegar, subtle vanilla
Medium to light, slick mouthfeel, with a lively carbonation.
Finishes acidic, wooden, fruity, with lots of raspberries again, vinegar.
Tasty. Lots of raspberries, but also quite a lot of wine barrel, especially in the taste. Pretty complex more on the acidic side, while also with subtle sweet notes. One of my favourite Almanacs I've had, really lovely stuff.
Bottle. Pours a heavily sedimented and muddy light pinkish-hue. The aroma is rife with berry and alcohol. Super tart and puckery, this lives up to every characteristic you'd want from the style. Despite it's "lightness" it's far from light.

Draft at Almanac Taproom. Hazy bright ruby-red with a small whitish head. Aroma is rasp city! Funky, fruity, some oak. Flavor is also tart, biting raspberry in your dome piece. Medium-bodied, crisp, acidic, well-carbonated. Ghostface killah! I can drink the rasp berry until I'm raspy. I'm raspy now. Life is good. j12601 (13035) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - AUG 25, 2017
