Reddish copper from the bottle. Pretty sour for them, with a little more acidity.
Raspberries and oak with a hint of darker fruitier malts. Quite nice. djd07 (16512) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 3, 2017
Bottle. Pours a hazy copper with small white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is oak, funk, berry, vinegar. Thin, berry, oak, acidic, vinegar, puckering sour. nickd717 (5079) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 3, 2017
Bottle pours a brilliant clear crimson (roll taaaaaahde) with amber hues and a quickly fading head. Big sharp nose attack, raspberry, cherry, vinegar notes, touch of funk. Hints of beer. I know this barrel previously held beer, and I must say the beer comes through nicely in this beer-bal aged beer. Beer^2 if you will. The flavor is quite acetic, but that’s the style, so whatcha gonna do except bend over and say bring on more vinegar. Great fruit, and a good intense tart bite reminiscent of unripe aggregate fruits. Nice feel, crisp, puckering, active carbonation. Well done. koleminer20 (4371) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - DEC 31, 2016
From notes. Enjoyed at a tasting Kyle finally made it to at Mickey’s on December 01. 750 mL bottle. The pour is a strange ambery copper color with a thinner off-white head and a good bit of lace as it sticks to the glass. The aroma is pretty good. There is a lot of raspberry am a heavy red wine. The barrel is a little bit of a wet oak addition, and then a light cherry poked in. It’s pretty good. There is a hint of vinegar on the back end that I’m not crazy about. The flavor is a little better. The raspberry and cherry are great and just pop. The wine character fades a bit, and the wet oak holds throughout. The vinegar fades on the flavor, and that’s a good thing. The mouth feel is a little heavy and syrupy with a brighter carbonation and a lingeringly tart and sour finish. This is a damn good beer.

Bottle. Clear amber to copper pour with a thin off-white head. Aroma of sourness, tart berry and malt. Malty flavor with sour raspberry before a tart vinegar finish.

Bottle from California, courtesy of Michael (misterburd) -- cheers, buddy! This is one of the best sour/wild beers I’ve ever come across. It’s sourness is complex, with a balanced acidity that is staggeringly well integrated with the raspberry flavors. It starts off tart but the fruit asserts itself quickly, giving a great sour raspberry flavor at the end. Top notch. brokensail (16696) - Dublin, California, USA - JUN 20, 2016
On tap @ Rare Barrel. Lightly hazed, deep amber colored beer with some off-white foam. There’s a lot of sour fruits here like cranberry, raspberry, and sour cherry. Certainly a lot of lemon juice and some red wine vinegar as well. Light sweetness, sort of a mild barrel character, and a bit of vinous currant. The acidity does become a bit much here, which is sort of their thing at this point. rxeight (3344) - Illinois, USA - JUN 17, 2016
