2014 bottle shared by Brandon at Side Project release, thank you! Pour is cloudy pink with a medium light pink head. Aroma and flavor are funky and lightly tart with a spicy berry component. Not too jamy at the moment; more funk and spicy berry. A lot of subtlety in this beer.

2014 Vintage. Murky deep pink with no head. Explosive of bilberries, wild strawberries more so than raspberry. Very distinctive acidity, almost overwhelming, quite simple minded, not a lot of funk, but huge amounts of fruits and for me way to vinegary, great aroma though.

Pours bright red with no head. Aroma of fresh raspberries, wild strawberry and some vanilla oak. Slightly sweet raspberry flavor that ends up dry and tart without overpowering the raspberries.

Pours a deep purple rose color with some pectin haze and a trace of rising gaseous bubbles. Raspberry puree with that 3F funk ! Beautiful layers of tart raspberry flesh, musty old wood, puckering acidity. Everything I hoped it would be... could have used a touch more on the carbonation but delicious from beginning to end !

Bottle shared with CLevar in New Orleans. Beautiful red pour with almost no head. Low carbonation. Tart raspberry nose with some seed and funk. Massive raspberry taste, sour, funky and quite good. Would be a point or two higher if it were more carbonated.
