On draft at Trappist Provisions. It pours a super cloudy pinkish purple color with a massive pink head. Lots of sediment in this one. They poured about 20 glasses out of the keg and still had sediment problems. Oh well. The aroma is big time blackberry and raspberry. Good amount of acid on the nose. The flavor is also filled with tart berry fruit. Heavy lactic acid as well with some solid berry sweetness to balance it out. Not much barrel or funk, just tons of mouth puckering fruit. Not yeasty or muddled despite the cloudy appearance. Maybe it’s just pectin haze. Pretty delightful stuff.

750 ml bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a very hazy dark raspberry flesh with lighter pink head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells tart, fruity, oaky, and funky with a nice boysenberry presence. Tastes like it smells with a pleasant medium-bodied mouthfeel. Great stuff.
