This one had the wonderful distinction of being enjoyed by me in a reasonably dark and very cramped closet!
The beer pours pink and reasonably hazy without looking gross, it’s got a pale pink head that rises and falls like champagne, it’s pretty... but not stunning.
The aroma is really big on funk perhaps moreso than I had expected it to be even considering the producer. It’s got raspberries for days though which is heavenly. It’s got oak and lemon zest... and more like jammy raspberry.
The flavor starts with a sort of tart berry thing, it’s earthy and it’s sour... it’s got lemon peel, then about mid palate the sort of jammy raspberry thing hits hard. It’s perfectly dry with a mild but pleasant bitterness. it’s oaky and pungent with a little bit of under-ripe tomato thing happening, but it’s chill.
It’s a complex and wonderful beer.

Pours light raspberry with no head. Aromas of raspberry, red currant, citrus, slight cherry. Nose is perfectly blended, just amazing. Taste is soured fruit, citrusy notes and slight earthy tones. Mouthfeel is light bodied with moderate carbonation. Insanely well balanced between tart, fruit, earthy notes and floral notes. Wow. KansaiBeerLvrs (5378) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 15, 2016

Sourish-fruity, moderately funky aroma of raspberries, some strawberries, red wine vinegar, some oak and some bitter almond. Quite sour, fruity and moderately funky taste of raspberries, strawberries, red wine vinegar and a bit of bitter almond, followed by a medium long, quite tart and woody-dry finish.

2014 bottle shared thanks to kermis. Murky dark pink to brown with no real head. Some hay, funk, raspberries, red berries and black currant. Light bready, mineral, green leaves and a touch of red wine vigegar. Over medium sour and very light sweet. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.
