lively citrus, hillside aroma; muddy red appearance; mildly- sour taste, heavy on the funk; late summer berry aftertaste; minimal head from draft at Young Avenue. Very drinkable, does not pack a wallop. Perfect at room temp on 68 degree day in Memphis.

Sampled at Bearden Beer Market / Embrace The Funk event. Murky red, with a white head. Smells citrusy tart, with notes of raspberry, stone, and balsamic vinegar. Nicely sweet, vinegary flavors mixed with peppery fruit notes. Some woody, oaky notes in the finish.

Growler at Home with friends, courtesy of curtismcarthur . Big thanks for this one man!!! Pour is hazy pinkish-amber with a small cream head and decent lacing. Cranberry, raspberry, nutmeg, cinnamon, pie crust, graham crackers, light strawberry, and a touch of funk in the aroma. Taste is red wine vinegar, raspberries, blackberries, spicy, nutmeg, peppery, tannic, and fruity with a lightly tart finish. Medium body with light carbonation. Not overly sour, balanced nicely with spice and easy-drink. Pretty tasty stuff.

Pours a beautiful ruby pink color. Nice crisp currant/cranberry aroma with subtle tartness present. Not quite as sour as I expected knowing this was blended with Oscar, but it makes for an incredibly drinkable beer. Fruity, dry finish, slight funk. Would buy this a lot.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
A lively sour, in appearance, aroma and taste. It’s very tart, feels like its derived from some nostalgic, dark wild fruit I imagine I found in the woods as a kid. Powerful but not overwhelming. The perfect companion for the patio or wherever summer may find you.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2013 This beer offers an interesting and complex palate that starts with a sharp, fruity tartness, turns funky, and follows with a nice pale malty flavor. My overall thought is that it is a nice beer that tastes crisp and a bit different, but lacks the punch that I was really hoping for.
