Bottle… Hazy rose-colored ale with a small, fizzy, white head. The aroma is sweet and fruity with moderate funk. Mild fruity sweetness on the palate, alongside medium pungency and light, stale hop earthiness. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and restrained carbonation. Tart, bone-dry finish. The high ABV is expertly hidden. A shout goes out to IBrew2or3 for sharing his bottle with the Tampa crew!

Courtesy IBrew2or3. Thanks Dave! Pours a clear light red color, with a small white head. Smells of some sour cherry notes, some floralness, and acidity also show up as well. The flavor had some definite sharp acidity to it. The cherrieswere there, but not overly sweet. Seemed to be balanced fairly well between the sour and the fruit. The monster alcohol was masked really well, I would have never guessed it was 15%. Pretty nice fruit beer. Thanks again Dave for sharing this rarity.

This ‘fruit’ beer pours a pink color from a 22oz bottle. Medium sized pinkish white foamy head. Aroma is funk, barnyard, horse blanket, cherries, malt and fruit. A medium to full-bodied fruit beer. Touch of cherries, touch of caramel and toffee. Lots of funk and horse blanket. It a lambic, no it’s a barleywine. No it both and neither, Interesting and complex. The 15% alcohol is not visible in all this funk. I like it. I need the FUNK… Mouthfeel is full. Finish is crisp and clean. Aftertaste is funky and tart.
