What the brewers say

“Blended barrel-aged sour ale with raspberries.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Raspberry jam on toast, with some roasty chocolate and coffee. Behind that is some funk and earthiness and lactic tartness. Slightly sweet, with just a hint of lime—like a Sprite.”

Flavor: “The raspberries aren’t too sweet, are nice and tart, and carry through the entire taste. The tartness is right in line with the flavor, with light Lacto and a touch of cherry and lime. Moderate dryness and a roasty and toasty malty backbone. More Brett here in the flavor—nice and earthy.”

Overall: “The lingering raspberry is nice, and with it is that light sourness and tartness. The balance of the fruit, malt, acidity, and funk is right down the middle of the road—nothing really popped, but nothing was out of place, either. A bit more fruit would’ve been nice, but it’s a very solid beer overall.”
