12oz bottle I got awhile back from George, the only difference is the bottle is labeled #7. Rating #3. Dark brownish red pour with an off white head. Tart berry aroma with an almost wine like thing going on. Very light flavor, fruit juice, but watered down fruit juice, kind of bland.

Thanks to goryshkewych for this one. Pours dark brown with reddish highlights. Nose is sweet raspberry, earthiness, some roasted malt, a hint of sour, tart raspberry, and some more misc sweetness. Flavor is similar with a tartness, and I agree with IBrew2or3 there is some flavors that remind me of berry skins, but it is a pretty enjoyable beer overall. Medium body and a relatively thick mouthfeel for a fruit beer. Interesting minimalist label. Great beer, Kuhnhenn Ibrew2or3 (8748) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 14, 2009
Thanks to markwise for sharing this 12oz bottle. Pours hazy deep amber with thin off white head. The aroma is fruity with apricots, berries, sour fruit, earthiness and some sugar sweetness. The taste is raspberry fruit and some berry skin tannin tartness to go along with moments of musty fruit mixing with a dash or two of sweet malts. It ends thin and mildly tart. The tartness lends itself to a refreshing sensation. I say Yum! I love this brewery.
