4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft from unknown, courtesy Joe. 2013 vintage. Pours a dark reddish brown, aroma is almost all raspberries, very little of the cherries or the barrels, lacto funk is there, though. Body is medium/lively, thought it might have been a little bit more tart, actually. Wood comes in huge, crashing through body and hitting roof of mouth. Might have wanted a little bit more liveliness but overall a really great beer. Upright does it again!

Sampled at DLD 2013. It poured a deep, reddish amber color with an off-white head. The aroma was raspberry tartness with a bit of blueberry and a slight underlying funk. The taste was a rich raspberry note that becomes tart with backing wine and light funk. Mighty tasty.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a clear ruby color with a minimal to average frothy white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy sour fruit and yeast aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & tart flavor with a medium to heavy sour & tart finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer for style.
