Shared bottle with Timfoolery at City Beer in San Francisco. This was cherries and raspberries all the way. It was a solid brew, but not as sour as I was expecting.

arminjewell (5993) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Pour out of 750 ml bottle, hazy orange-red pour with white head, aroma brought notes of grape, oak, white fruit, red fruit, grass, nice lemon and lactic notes. Taste is a mix of lemon, lactic, dark fruit, cherry, nice berry, hints of earth, slight yeast, caramel, finishing fairly bitter, tart. Nicely done.
