Dark horse with a non acetone sour, very nice. Lots of raspbery, sharp and aciic.

Pouring at EBF 2014. Pours a clear ruby with a thin white head. Sweet jammy raspberries, candy on the nose. Raspberry jam empties out into acetone and an odd styrofoam funk. Lingering raspberry jam and funk. Decent stuff.

Draft at FoBAB. Pours a hazy reddish amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have tart raspberries, citrus acidity, funk, some oak with a lasting sour finish. One of the better Dark Horse sours yet.

Bottle shared by DrSilverworm- thanks again, Chris! Pours a clear berry gold color with a few bubbles around the edge. Aroma of vanilla, sweet malts, raspberries, funk, leather, yogurt, and cheesecake. The flavor is the same, but with more berries and more balanced sweetness. Medium-bodied, with moderate to medium carbonation and a sweet, mildly tart mouthfeel. Good sweet and sour ale.

12.7oz bottle. Mostly hazy red orange color. Thin off-white head, light bubbly head, a couple bits of lace. Despite the minimal head, a solid looking color and appearance. Good raspeberry aroma, some cheese cake like aroma, maybe light butter ( a lot of discussion about that at our tasting ). Smooth, creamy carbonation, more dry finish. Bigger body.. Very smooth. Good creamy raspberry aroma, nice light woody taste. Moderate tart taste, good sweet. Amazingly, these Dark Horse 4Elf beers have been way tastier to me than the rates indicate. I was actually afraid to open them from the current rates, but this tastes awesome. Really enjoyed it.

Draft to taster at FoBAB. Looks good; a mostly transparent light raspberry (reddish orange) with thin white lacing. Smells and tastes solid; tart and wild with notes of raspberry. Nice on the palate. Enjoyable; definitely the best sour I’ve had from Dark Horse thus far.

3.9
TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 18, 2013
On tap at FoBAB 2013 (Chicago, IL). Pours a deeper hazed reddish orange hue, decent haziness, some floaties and loose offwhite head dies to a ring, laces small. Aromas are pulpy raspberry, oranges and lactic acidity. Some firmer yogurt, more fruit and gentle oak. Initial is smaller body, quite crushable with a big lactic element up front. Spritzy lemony life, yogurt, and lemon rind, juice. Touches of oak, funk, straw. Gentle pulpy raspberry, straw, and some oranges grow, a touch sweeter but still nice citric acidity. Backend is still potently sour, raspberry and bgig lkemony lactic presence. Doesn’t cross over into the harsh realm, quite approachable. A bit grainy but some nice stuff. Pleasantly surprised and highly likely this is the best Dark Horse sour beer I’ve had.

Wow, I am really suprised by this one. Poured a hazy pinkish yellow color with a wite head. Aroma was loads of fresh raspberries, mild funk and lemon juice too. Falvor was very fresh raspberries again, tart, and seedy and earthy too, light cheese and llactic finish. Great stuff all around.

3.9
burg326 (5596) - Florida, USA - MAY 8, 2014
Poured a light reddish color with aromas of light cheese funk, tart raspberries and some malt. Flavors were light sour and hay followed by some tart raspberries. A solid sour beer
