375 ml shared by Heather_B, thanks much. Cloudy reddish color with soft level of carbonation. Light raspberry, rustic grain, mild acid aroma. Taste is softly sour, mostly mild tart, raspberry is balanced by sour wheat.

Tartness is mild with a decent amount of berries. The mouthfeel is nicely tart. Pretty damn nice overall.

My bottle says 4.5% abv. I opened my near room temperature bottle and it started to gush. Lost not a drop. Dark red liquid with, initially, a big head of pink foam. That died down leaving some islands and a ring around the glass. I smell raspberries that are tart, the woody notes from the oak and mild funk.I needed to take really deep whiffs to pull out the last one. Diving into the tastes now and my palate is hooked. The delicate tartness is in no way coming across as artificial. There’s a sour thing going on as well..akin to what a wine’s tannins bring to that beverage. Woody oak notes round off of what I would call a fine drinking experience. All at 4.5% abv. Light bodied and a bit bit watery in the finish but that’s a minor gripe. More than worth the $7.50 I paid. Oh, I almost forgot to mention. Mild horseblanket in the taste. 7

glennmastrange (2858) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAY 31, 2017
Bottle. Moderate grain and hay for the malt, light herbs for the hops, moderate musty farmhouse for the yeast, with vinegar and raspberry. Head is small to average, frothy, light pink, with fair lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is clear dark cranberry. Flavor starts heavily acidic and sour, then finishes heavily acidic and again sour. Palate is light, watery, with a fizzy carbonation and a very tart finish. Excellent Sour Ale with a really deep and bold taste.

RasmusOtt (2740) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 27, 2017
Tap. Pours clear red with a tiny white head. Aroma of raspberries, lactic tartness, slight pithy, jam, weak vanilla and oak. The taste is fresh and Raspberry forward with a rather pithy feel to it. Also slight vanilla and a big amount of refreshing tartness. Good stuff.
