I can hazily remember having a bottle of this at a tasting at Peg’s a year or so ago. Can’t say that I thought very highly of it, just lots of malt vinegar and not much else. So when I found one this year, I approached it with some trepidation. But… this was really good. Not stupendous, but just a good, gentle sour filled with raspberries (and I *love* raspberry beers). It’s a nice break from the face-melting sours that I seem to always open when faced with a choice. I wouldn’t have guessed that it was >10%, so that was a bit of a surprise. Not cheap by any means, but let’s face it, if you’re in this game then you have some cash to burn anyway.
