On tap at GTMW 2013. Hazy copper-amber with a minimal head presence. Aroma is spicy and hoppy with fruit, citrus, caramel and mild tannins. Taste is sweet with tannins, caramel, illegible hops aroma and a mild sour finish. TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Draft pour on tap at GTMW 2013 (Madison, WI). Pours a deep orange amber hue, gentle haze but pretty light. Striking glow, mellow frothy whitish head dies to a film. Aromas are gentle sweetness, raspberry, firm oak and gentle spirit. A touch wild, mellow sour fruit. Initial is gentle, a touch warm, bready and bretty. Some wild elements. Firm oak tannins, a bit of tartness into the middle. Gentle red fruit, oak, spirit. Backend is a bit dry and tannic, funk. A bit hot as we round the corner. Finish is dry, tannic, hot. Some mellow fruit, mellow wild presence, messy and unfocused. Ok. crossovert (13724) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 11, 2013
VEry nice flavors, fleeting fruit/bourboniness, like a drunken cake desert. cbfobes (2885) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - DEC 8, 2012
On tap at the brewery, pours a clear dark golden with a white head and some spotty lacing, the aroma has some nice fruit touches with a little bit of the whiskey coming through, the flavor has a front end of a tad bit of sour fruit with a finish of oak and whiskey, was hoping for a little more out of this but not bad by any means. deyholla (12021) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Sampled from the tap at FOBAB 2012. Pours a hazy amber with a light brown head that dissipates to the edges quickly. Aroma has a bitter raspberry note with some sweet grains and a bit of whiskey. Flavor has bitter raspberries with a nice barrel note and a nice fullness to the beer.

Draft. Pours a cloudy dark amber with a finger of white head. Aroma of raspberries and whiskey. Taste is the same. Light bodied with a thin texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, awesome.
