375 ml bottle shared by Mark- thanks again, Mark! Wow, first rating. And I知 not even a member. Pours a cloudy ruby color with some scattered bubbles that don稚 accumulate into a head. Aroma of berries, mineral notes, florals, funk, and sour mash. Flavor of blackberries, tart grapes, sourdough, and some oaky funk. Light-medium bodied, with a dry, tart mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Nice sour.

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.

12.7oz bottle shared by alexsdad06. Hazy, dark raspberry kind of purple color, looks cool. Little ring of white head. Awesome oaky tart fruity berry aroma. Kind of floral. Great nose. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Great light sour tart taste, light sweet. Very enjoyable, fantastic sour. Great one to end a tasting of heavy beers with.

Pour out of 375 mL bottle, dark reddish purple pour with thin to no off white head, aroma brought notes of big berry, blackberry, tart raspberry, nice oak, vanilla, slight bretty notes, hints of tropical fruit and doughy notes, pretty nice. Taste is not as tart as I thought, but nice red and dark berry, nice lemon, biscuit, bready notes, slight earth, grassy notes, hints of slight tart note, finishing fairly bitter, slightly tart, hints of more berry.

Bottle to snifter (shared by alexsdad06). Looks good; a somewhat hazy reddish blackberry with off-white lacing. Smells good too; fruity and funky with a notable raspberry presence. Tastes like it smells with a nice, dry mouthfeel. Good beer!

Kinda cool that i am the third rater - thanks Felipe! Pours hazy purple red, burgundyesque with a tiny off white head that neither sticks around nor laces well. Aroma is bretty, funk, barnyard. Fruity but not specifically blackberry, oak. Flavor is light plus tart, some initial sweetness with a dry finish. Light bodied. Interesting.
