3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler, thanks fredrik_ for setting up this tasting!
Between dark golden and clear red with a porous white head.
Aroma: raspberries, oak.
Taste: raspberries, wood, light tart with some apples, vanilla, not very dry, some lactose in the finish, perhaps light yoghurt. Not overly sour, tart, funky or sweet, instead pretty nicely balanced and drinkable.
Medium bodied, with above average carbonation.
I liked this quite a lot and went back for another glass.

: Pours pale pinkish with a sour, pippin apple nose. Little to no head. Anorexically thin plate and a dry faintly fruity finish. Overall, out of balance w/ not enough fruit.

(Draught) Pours a reddish golden body with a small off-white head. Aroma of raspberries, yogurt, caramel, and wet wood. Flavor of raspberries, funkiness, cheese, vinous, and wood. kbutler1 (1382) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Growler. Courtesy of Gabe, thanks for sending! Pours a clear reddish pink color with a slightly off white head. The aroma is tart raspberry with a mild lemon sourness. The taste is a not overly sweet or tart raspberry flavor with a medium level of sourness. I liked this beer until about 3/4 through until I got a light cream cornlike flavor that threw me off. Overall, pretty decent but not outstanding for me. Oakes (19013) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 16, 2011
Reddish-amber. Woody, Rodenbachish aroma with light raspberry. Bracingly tart on the palate, with light wood. Moderately fruity finish sweetens up a bit, but it is still fairly assertive stuff. When I had a glass at the Santa Fe taproom the wine came out a bit more. 3fourths (9358) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 12, 2011
eatery and acidic nose with mild perfumed raspberry fruit puree. prickly medium-high acid (lactic), fruity esters, mild oak affect, soft prickly acid with perfumed dry raspberries. acid and body work well, especially in the finish. mild touch of oak lingers late. sessionable and solid. craftbeerdesign (2254) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 11, 2011
