pale brown. nose has a medium tartness and a strong note of raw,
unsweetened berries, which also happens to be the dominant flavor.
Woody, earthy, dried leaves and nut flavors provide an interesting
contrast to the husky dried berry note throughout. Base malts are
clean, simple and straightforward.

Crushed with Jakebra at the tasting room. Got some nice roast, coffee, vanilla on the nose. Flavor is roasty with the raspberries really coming through. Pretty damn nice.
