3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours red with a reddish hued white head. Aroma was full of fresh raspberry and oak with a touch of catcus. Flavor had boatloads of oak, caramel, nail polish, toffee, and dust. Finishes a little flat for the style, but was drank right at release. Would improve greatly with a bit more carbonation...

OK, so this beer has raspberry puree added. There is a $hit load of puree inthe bottom of this bottle. I thought that it would be best to mix and suspend this addition to the brew as that was the way is was intended. Shook the bottle vigorously to break up the big chunks of sediment. Allowed to sit for several hours. Then inverted several times before opening. This suspended the puree in a very fine form. Thin light pink head of fine bubbles. Does not last long. Good carbonation. Heavily clouded dark ruby brown in color. Huge oak and raspberry aroma. Some light malts and a bit of ripe berry aromas. Very lively in the mouth. Carbonation explodes upon drinking. Lots of berry flavors and oak again. Moderate tartness and sourness. Noticable alcohol presence and warming. Some spicyness late swallow. Pepper and cinnamon. Very easy drinking brew. Finishes a bit sour and fruity with a lingering alcohol presence. A pretty good fruit brew. Not too much sour which is what I like.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle at Sea-of-Floydster tasting. Bottle from hopdog. I’ve been curious to try this beer. Seems very rare to some people, but then the ratings aren’t that high. Cloudy red amber color. Lightly sweet. Lots of fruitiness. Insanely easy to drink. Excellent.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750ml Bottle. Pours a hazy amber color with a small off white head that diminishes quickly. Nose is tart, sour, berry, musty. Initial taste is rhine bitterness that is over astringent and irratating along with the aggressive carbonation micro bubbles. Moving into a fruity funk, tart, oak and some brett characteristics. This beer was a complete mess. No balance, palate duration average. Body is light to medium.

Sampled at Backus’ Backyard Bash. Hazy brown with no head. Oaky and mildly sour nose, some berry. Just seemed weak overall. I have one cellaring - we’ll see what age does. Meh.

Pours orange/copper, with an off white head. Aroma is raspberries, oak, and is also a little sour/tart. Flavor is raspberries, alcohol, funk, oak, and earth. It is a little sour, but it ends more sweet. It’s better as it warms.
