Pours a translucent copper with thin ring of lacy head that leaves light lace. Aroma is funky sour fruit and light raspberry tartness. Taste follows, awesome funk and sour mix. Really nicely done.

Pours a light copper with a pink tint, has very little head and lacing. Aroma is tart with light berry and vanilla character. Taste is tart with sour raspberry and some tannic qualities. Oaky and light vanilla with a dry wine finish. Mouthfeel is slick with a light medium body and medium carbonation. Very nice and tasty sour ale with good balance of tartness and barrel character. Nice dryness.

Huge sour funk aroma and opens up to some great tartness. Really great mouthfeel and the sourness does not overwhelm. Not a lot of the raspberry flavor but you can tell how it balances out the sour. Great stuff and really excited to try the rest of the series.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nicely sour, but limited contribution from raspberries or wine barrels. $19.19/765 ml bottle probably justified based on production costs---but a poor value in the sour market.
