Fruity. Sweet and tart. Rich. Doughy. Pours a dark caramel brown with an sudsy light tan head that leaves a thick ring of bubbles around the edge. Dry. Very tart. Lots of berry. Lots of oakiness. The tartness lingers for a good while. This is really nice.

This isnt a bad beer, and its actually better than Id expected it to be, given that I found it at Sams Club for a fairly low price. But its definitely a stepping stone kind of beer. More aggressive than the light, crisp tartness of a goze or Berliner Weiss, but without the strong, intense, multi-faceted bombast of a Flanders style sour brown ale. This beer pours brown with reddish highlights and a decent amount of crackly foam. The aroma is heavy on the raspberries, but some oak is on the nose, too. The flavor is woody and dense up front, and closes with a blast of the raspberries and oak again, before a mildly malty exhale. I could do without the raspberry notes, I have to wonder if the raspberry flavoring is added to punch up an otherwise slightly muted sour brown. But, overall, it certainly isnt bad beer.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours reddish with a very thin white head. Taste sour/tart, raspberry, fruity. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Scipio (989) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - FEB 22, 2017
Pours an odd clear, dark, ruby color with a bubbly, off white head that recedes extremely quickly. The aroma is tart and contains heavy raspberry, cherry, vinegar, and oak. The taste is very dry, acidic, and has traces of sugar. This hits you with a short and powerful sour punch. Lots of raspberry and cherry, and a healthy oak presence is found here. Mild raspberry aftertaste. Its lighter in body, with a sticky texture, and has some lively carbonation. This one is pretty intense.

[2/3/17] Draught/Bottle at Extreme Beer Fest in Boston. Red-amber. Berries, oak, wine, vinegar, lacto, sour, quite juicy. Really good.
