Lukaduke (2689) - Gray, Maine, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Pours a purple color with two fingers of fizzy pink foam. The nose is lots of earthy berry, barnyard hay and some musky oak. The palate follows with a nice blackberry seltzer backbone that gains complexity from the musty barrel and imparts a touch of round toasted vanilla nuance that rounds out the acidity a bit and complements the dusty barnyard grain. Tasty !

wedgie9 (2507) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Tasted on 10/27/13 from a waxed and capped 375mL bottle, big thanks to Curtis for sharing. Pours blood orange with no real head, but some thin, bubbly lace. The nose is strong, nutty brett funk with tart, fruity blackberry. The flavor is the same, really more focused on the brett with tart, sour blackberry, and a touch of lemon acidity. The body is medium, nice tannic structure, with very light carbonation and a long funky and sour blackberry finish.
