Bottle from the brewery shared at Campground Brewdown. Poured maroonish brown body with a smaller foamy light beige head. Aroma of fresh crushed raspberry, sweet syrup, toast. Medium bodied with average carbonation and a dry sour finish. Flavor of raspberry, dry crusts and hint of barnyard, sour and tart overall. Good but maybe more time will bring out a touch more sourness.

Bottle shared by Ari, thanks! Pours a cloudy amber with a light brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a nice deep raspberry note that is slightly tart and a bit of oak, funk and grains. Flavor has a good amount of raspberry that has a nice tart note and a good backing oak and funk backing.

Bottle, pours murky amber off white head. Aroma has raspberries, vanilla, nutty. Flavors have raspberries, seedy, vinegar, vanilla, acidic finish. Spritzy feel. Pretty decent but rather muddled too.
