A – Murky and dark ruby red appearance. Minor level of haze and1 finger head that faded fast. Surprised at the lack of carbonation in this. The tight bubbles stuck around for a while.
S – Wow. Up front huge raspberry jam scent. Naturally, it’s funky but not over the top.
T – Nice level of lacto and solid raspberry like a jam or more like raspberry yogurt. Not very sweet though, more acetic than sweet. Funky, dry and mellow at the finish.
M – 25% carbonation. Medium body. Earthy and dry finish. Grape skin tannins sort of puckering finish.
O – This beer reminds me so closely of Hommage. Naturally, it’s more raspberry than the hommage. Still, it’s an exceptional beer and happily shared among a group of friends. Delicious.
