Pour is ruby/amber with no head. Aroma and flavor are both slightly acidic with notes of raspberry, sour funk, oak, vinegar, and yeast. Alcohol is well hidden behind the sourness.

2012 bottle, shared with my family over Christmas. Poured a deep reddish brown and was quite tart with a nice fruit finish. Iíd only had small shares of this beer in the past and it was nice to get a full 2/3 bottle of it. Fizzy with a little bit of funk, but overriding fruits, mostly raspberry. Good stuff.

2011 Bottle from Danís Taphouse in Boonsboro, MD. Pour is hazy burnt orange with a quickly dying off-white head. Aroma is fruity and acidic with definite notes of raspberry, oak, caramel, and fantastic bretty funk. Flavor shows sweet raspberry, vanilla, caramel, oak, orange zest, and more yeasty goodness. Overall body is moderate and sweet, followed with a drying moderate/heavy acidic finish. Great stuff. Imo, could use a little while longer in bottle to round out some rough edges, but overall a nice sour.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours blood orange with a lightly pink thick sheet. Smells of sour raspberries, some oak, graham and lacto. Flavor is sour with a slight sharp sweetness and a nice grain feeling. There are some vitamin flavors as well. I like the flavor of this one. Medium bodied with plenty of carb and an off dry finish. This beer is a surprise for me - Iím not a weyerbacher fan, but this vintage of this beer is good. Iíve got a "flat" 2010 in the cellar still, and hopefully itís nice, but this one was quite enjoyable. 3.5/4/4/3.5/4

Bottle, 2011 vintage, shared among my in-laws. Deep coppery amber with quite a lot of sediment. Sour raspberry aroma, lactic and oak undertones. Sour raspberry flavour with a lovely spicy funkiness, firm yoghurty acidity and sourness, light oak. Quite malty, but in balance with the other flavours-- quite reminiscent of a Flemish brown -- really excellent.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aromas of raspberry, lemon, and red wine. Hazy peach skin hue with some trub, almost like kombucha scoby, and with a fairly lasting off-white head. Dry and very acidic with flashes of raspberry mellowed by gentle oak spice. Crisp and cutting, with a light-medium body and an abrupt clean finish.

Bottle, caged and corked. Pours with a thin body, bright, shiny red and little head. The aroma is definitely fitting ... wild and outdoorsy, with a strong hint at the berries. This drinks with a puckeringly tart consistency, like candied berries and yeast, this drinks very nicely, and will definitely kill your sweet tooth! (#5292, 10/14/2013)
