Intense bright salmon color. Amazing strong raspberry flavor. One of the best aromas on a beer I’ve had. Dry tart raspberry flavor. Really nice fresh fruit flavor. Good sour finish, but not overpowering or acetic. Amazing beer. jredmond (8648) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 21, 2012
Sampled along side the 2010 batch as well. Bottle pours a super, bright pink body with no head or lacing, a hint of carbonation. Aroma is ridiculously delicate fruit, funky oak, raspberries and tartness. Mouthfeel is soft and gentle with wonderful notes of raspberry, jam, fruit juice, funky wood, and sour fruit. I will try this again. DYCSoccer17 (3708) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 18, 2013
2011 Vintage purchased at Ledger’s in Berkeley quite some time ago. Rating #3000. The aroma is very strong and quite pleasant. Dominant raspberry, but there is enough light tart musty acetic funk to make this more interesting. Really nice. Gorgeous moderately hazy candy-apple red body with a large, bubbly pink head that dissipates quickly, but then it maintains a nice head for a while afterwards. Absolutely stunningly beautiful beer. Starts with significant sour tartness. Light acetic notes. Some sour raspberry flavor comes through in the middle. It almost has a light medicinal flavor, though. Finishes with a dry, barnyardy tartness. This beer is badass.
