Bottle... Hazy burnt-orange pour with a small, fizzy, white collar. The aroma features loads of berries accompanied by an unobtrusive, woodsy funk. Full-bodied with zippy carbonation. The flavor is moderately sour and fruity with a small splash of red wine vinegar. Bottle courtesy of 50belair! djd07 (16452) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 1, 2016
Bottle thanks to Chris. Pours a hazy ruby orange with small frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is funky oak, cherry skin, funk. Thick mouth, oak, funky, tart, very good. 50belair (3718) - Florida, USA - DEC 1, 2015
Bottle. Clear reddish brown pour with a white head. Mild currant bouquet. Tangy black currant and then nothing else. One dimensional, thin, & flaccid ctipping (2299) - Florida, USA - NOV 30, 2015
750 mL bottle. Red body. Medium khaki head. Belgian yeast aroma. Currants and dark fruits. Oak and light acidity. Taste is lightly tart currant flavor. Some Belgian yeast and maltiness. Oak and acidity. Simple. Well carbonated. It’s not a real complex beer, but it’s decent. Ernesto987 (6050) - Arizona, USA - NOV 2, 2015
huge thanks to Drew for this one, Amazing beer. Top of the night and there was nothing but the very best here. Aamzing tart raisin flavors, complex grainy malts, moderate body and medium mouthfeel.

750 ml 2014 bottle generously shared by a friend visiting from California, thanks Ed! Murky dark ruby red with a finger of off-white head. Aromas of raspberries, berries, light funk and vinegar. Tastes of raspberries, berries, funk, oak, light vinegar and tart acidic notes. Light body with a dry finish. Fantastic stuff. ineedbeer (2329) - Oakland, California, USA - AUG 5, 2015
Poured from a bottle.
Aroma is fairly fruity with some really nice currant notes. Some medium light acidity with hints of citrus and tropical fruit. Light oak and wine notes.
Pours a hazy reddish color with some light brown hues and a medium sized, fairly thick, slightly pinkish tan head that exhibits nice retention. Medium lacing and small legs.
Flavor is moderately tart with some nice fruit notes from the yeast contributing berries and cherries. Medium light tannins with some medium light bitterness. Moderate currant notes with some light oak character. Hints of caramel and toasted bread. Light tropical fruit and stone fruit notes as well. Light alcohol spice and mineral notes with a nice, dry finish.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium high carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, this might be my favorite fruited beer that SARA released to the club in 2014 (sorry Westly). The fruit works really well with the malt in the base beer and the yeast qualities. Huhzubendah (3776) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 5, 2015
Bottle shared by ygtbsm94. Thanks Brad.
Ruby pink body with a thin light pinkish collar. Beautiful aroma of oak, must, fruit, yeast. Berries and oak. Tannic and yeasty. Mild acetic finish. Outstanding. joet (2678) - Wilsonville, Oregon, USA - MAR 22, 2015
Deep pink in color, holding a firm head of persistent fine white foam. Fairly clear, slight haze. Spritzy in feel but with a creamy edge. Aromas of berry, fresh wood, lacto driven, raspberry emerges, bit of salt and chalk. Lightly to medium tart. Big thanks to Edgar Hops for sharing. This is a stellar beverage. illidurit (2356) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 22, 2015
Guava color with pinkish white head. Soft fruity aroma, juicy currant and raspberry. Flavor is impressive, such nice currant, not devolving into raisin like other currant beers. Bright and tart, not even that sour but perfectly yogurty.
