2012 batch #1. From a trade with arminjewell-thanks, man! Pretty cranberry juice brown. Nice carbonation. Wet wood, vinious, funky nose. Tart, puckering...feel it on your teeth, share with a friend-it’s a bit fatiguing. Some dry red raspberry flavors.

Bottle pour. Very deep dark red color with a light white head. Very sharp aroma, harsh on the nose. Bitter hoppy taste, more than I expected considering it's a sour. Not very oaky. Overall and okay sour.
