4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml bottle thanks to Steve. Following the Paxton with another stellar beer. Violet hued body and a soft pink head. Big berry aroma, some dry wooden notes and just enough sour elements. Taste follows the same pattern, sour and dry, some earthy barrel tones, all wrapped up in the berries. Nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(750ml poured from the bottom of the bottle) pure milkshake pour that’s dark purple and no head. Nose of rich berry, funky lacto, barrel, medium tartness. Taste is pure berries, thick and milkshakey, pulpy, berry seeds, touch of lacto but mostly tart from the fruit, linger is odd because of the tart berry. Just seems like juice and nectar.
