Thanks for Chris for this one. Dry and funky with lots of vinous notes-red wine, red fruits/berries, some cheese and cobwebs. Body is insanely soft and velvety. Finish is dry, sour and tannic. Superb.

Sample from Chris Q at woodshop, thank you so much for breaking this out man! Pours a hazy pinkish purple with zero head and no carbonation. Big tart nose full of strawberries, razz, boysen and even some tart cherries. Flavor was very tart with berries and some citrus peel with a nice underlying funk. Even with no carbonation the mouth feel was stellar.

cquiroga with the mad gem here! Man what a beer. Brown pour with some light pink edges. Berries, vinegar, tart fruit, funky as hell, my mouth watered just smelling it. Flavor is sour and fruity and funky. Dry and tart. Each sip envelopes your entire mouth and puckers you just enough to want MORE. Wow.

750mL bottle at Woodshop 5.0, generously shared by cquiroga. Thanks, Chris! Pours a hugely murky, pinkish brown color; mostly headless; very murky and pulpy. Absolutely gorgeous aroma: barnyard funk, tart strawberries, pittiness, wheat; perfectly tart and acidic; dense, funky, absolutely lovely. Medium body: lots of tart strawberries, wheat, and pleasant pitty red fruits; bone dry, lively acidity and pulpy red fruits and light tannins. A very lovely fruit beer with an absolutely beautiful aroma. Medium finish: tart strawberries, light tannins, and cherry pits; beautifully dry.
