From the brewer

Here it is folks, our raspberry sour with all the soul we could squeeze into it. This pours bright and red with strong raspberry and mature soured notes on the nose. It drinks crisp and dry with a slight ‘raspberry hard candy’ note on the front. This soon gives way to a huge acid content which pushes the edge of comfort on the back of the palate. The finish is surprisingly clean and lingering. Brewed and soured using one of our two house sour strains, “Angelica”, which we grew up from wild bacteria and yeasts native to the Skagit valley. Copious amounts of local, seasonal and farm direct raspberries were harmed year after year in the making of this beer.

Who's been drinking this

Vinegary smell. Effervescent, tart ale with definite raspberry notes and a sweet wheaty malt finish.
Very sour, with some nice raspberry flavors. Has a little of a pickled flavor though.
