Pours attractive deep and clear ruddy brown. Nose is tart and slight oak. A bit of berry in the flavor with the funk and barrel influence. A bit single faceted. Not much of a barrel influenced finish either.

This beer had a very tasty blueberry flavor along with the tartness of a sour. Flavor was still bright and well balanced. Nice clear color, good carbonation, and a tasty sweet finish.

On tap at Brouwer’s for Migration Week. Pinky orange. Tart nose, wet flavor. Not really getting blueberries here, but it’s nice and dusty, with white wine and a decent pucker. Not bad at all.

On tap at crunchy's tap takeover. A bit sour and a bit tart. The blackberry finish really elevates this beer.

Notes of Brett, barnyard, and wood rise from a cloudy ruby grapefruit pour which produces a thin none-lasting off-white head and no lacing. The taste is very tart. Brett, sour dark fruit, tannins, wood, with hints of pepper/spice. A rewarding meld of flavors with a long lasting sour/tart aftertaste. Light body and crisp carbonatin. Crisp, tart mouthfeel. Overall, this beer is a winner. Well crafted, complex, and exceedingly enjoyable.

Deep, cloudy red pour with some fluffy white head. Aromas or ripe berries, oak, and funk. Flavor is tart and woody with a great sour finish. This is delicious!

Good, but not as good as Lolita. The fruit flavor here is more nuanced than in Lolita, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but has a more difficult time fighting the tartness. Perhaps a quibble tho.

Batch 2 bottle. Pour is slightly cloudy with a purple hue and a large very effervescent light pink head. Lots and lots of bubbles with a few floaties. Aroma is strawberry, cranberry, blackberry, champagne, light wood, tannins, and wine. Really enticing and light aroma. Flavor is intensely effervescent and very true to nose. It really tastes like it smells with a dry finish. Love the berry and wine flavors. Not too much sour detectable, just very well balanced.
