(On tap at the brewpub, Mar 18 2014) Pours a slightly hazy orange-tinged rose colour with a lingering head of fine white bubbles. Aroma sour, raspberry-forward, white wine and wood present too, a slight funk but more on the sour side of brett - good concentration of fruit in the nose. Palate again has lots of raspberry, sour and acetic, wood in the middle with a slight white wine character, more vinegar on the finish provides a sour core with some tart raspberry lingering as well. Bit of barnyard-y brett in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel light and slightly watery, carb soft. No doubt you have to like sours to like this, but the combination of barrel and fruit worked well. Maybe a little bit more body might kick it up that last level.

[Draught at the brewpub.] Pours a cloudy yellow-gold with no head. Aroma of sour fruit and wood, vinegar and white wine. Sour, vinegary flavour -- not for those who don’t like this, really nice though if you do. Average to medium bodied. Enjoyable.
