GABF 2012. Multiple tastes at GABF. So glad to finally try this! Pours a hazy purple appearance with a small off white head. Super juicy, tart nose with tons of raspberries, vanilla, and light funk. Super tart raspberry, funky, juicy, light barnyard flavor. It’s a burner but very nice for Sourheads.
