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.

Draft at 4 Elf Party 2013 - pours a transparent ruby red . Lots of barnyard funk with fresh raspberries. Fairly sour fresh raspberry flavor, not overwhelming. Very refreshing.

On tap at the Michigan Summer Beer Fest. A really good raspberry sour. Really wish I could have this again.

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.

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

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.

Another one from DrSilverworm or as I call him, the maaaaaaaaaaaaaan. This is a buttery beer...big butter touchdown Jesus, Hey-Zeus if you will. There are also raspberries, sour stuff, and some other stuff. It is pretty good.
