500ml bottle. Tart raspberry aroma with notes of yeast funk, red wine and oak. Pours ruby-amber colored with a thin but retentive off white head that also has excellent lacing. Starts with tart raspberry flavors with a little bit of funk from the yeast. Finishes quite tart and dry but smooth with nice red wine tannins as well as a bit of oak. Another nice sour from Destihl.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
GABF 2016. Appears hazy amber/rose with a small head and light lace. Aromas of raspberry and oak. Hints of pepper, wheat bread. Taste has an intense sour note upfront with a load of raspberry tartness to compliment. Some pepper spice couples with the yeast/funk to provide a bloody mary-like note in the mid-palate. Full mouthfeel lets the fruit linger in the finish. Solid American sour!

Draft. Light peach with no head. Strong aroma of tartness with some berry fruit notes. Light body with intense tartness upfront and throughout, some sweetness and yeast funk, and a hint of raspberry. The tartness is a bit over the top but otherwise good.
