3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate berries (Iím getting more cherry than rapsberry) with some light oak, barely a hint of lemon, and alcohol. It pours a murky brownish-orange with a small pink head that settles to a very thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. The flavor starts with moderate-heavy raspberry that builds in tartness towards the finish and mixes with moderate lemon, light oak, and alcohol. Itís medium bodied with mild carbonation.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
DATE TASTED: December 24, 2015... GLASSWARE: Duvel snifter...OCCASION: Christmas Eve celebration done...time for a worthwhile ending to the night ...APPEARANCE: dark brown, almost iced tea in appearance, like muddied water... head swiftly descends to a thin white ring of bubbles... AROMA: powerful fragrance of flowers and funky yeasts... the Bretts paint a woody, oak-laden impression--big, bold and demanding...the second flavor is raspberry and puckering sourness...PALATE: vibrant, active at the teeth and bubbly throughout the mouth; a long, lingering, dry finish--a full-bodied sour that drinks with relative ease and without the hint of its alcoholic weight... TASTE: thick raspberry, a dessert in itself--the oaken casks create a woody, lightly spiced, slightly toasted back end that compliments the fruitiness; apple, berry, and malty...the sourness is intense and dominant...OVERALL: bigger and more demanding than the usual sours encountered during the year... a wonderful gift from Jeff that isnít wasted on me...this is where Weyerbacher belongs, in a big beer with room to work.... intensely fruity and tart, with enough candied allure to bring upon the next sip....strong and sippable...

2015-08-15. Murky pink body with a small head, last of the bottle. Aroma of year raspberry and yeast. 7+ Flavour is similar, pleasantly tart raspberry, lightly yeasty and acidic. 7++ Oak character doesnít really come out much. Smooth average bodied palate, soft carbonation. Solid, enjoyable. Bottle (possibly aged?) at Campground Brewdown.
