Ommegang Aphrodite to share. The beer pours a ruby red color with a thin filmy off-white colored head. The aroma consists of raspberry, yeast, pear, vinegar, cherry, and some brettanomyces. The taste is lightly sour with some raspberry pucker on the front end. There is a bit of vinegar, Belgian yeast, pear, and cherry flavors. It has a bubbly mouth feel, and the finish brings out a dry grassy flavor. The alcohol content is 8.9% ABV. This wasn’t quite as sour of a beer as I expected, but it was very delicious and had a good raspberry flavor with hints of vinegar.
