Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a clear ruby color with a large frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy sour yeast, wood and berry aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour fruit flavor with a medium to heavy sweet & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer for style.

375 ml bottle shared with the group in December 2013. Pours a hazy reddish purple color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have a great tart/sour berry character, wood, funk, floral notes, mild acidity, very drinkable while still showing nice sour components.
