On tap at the brewery in Berkeley. Pours an amber color with an amazing fruity aroma. Well balanced on the palate and I definitely got the raspberries. Splendid!!
750ml bottle of Blend 38. Pours a reddy brown color without much head. Nice blend of raspberry with the medium sourness. Some nice funk to go with it.

Thanks Carl! Nice red pour with pink head. Raspberry, funk, tart, and mild acidity. Beautifully balanced. Awesome. fiery_1 (1026) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 25, 2017
750ml bottle @ the office. Pours a cloudy rusty brown with a thin off-white head. Nose is a nice tart raspberry note with an oak barrel influence. Flavour is acidic sour but the raspberry is nice and light. The lacto is prevalent while the oak barrel character is muted. Ferris (15288) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 25, 2017
Bottle - Prune and sour cherry, touch of balsamic. Cloudy copper with a small head. Balsamic and sour cherry, touch of acidity. Nice. Oakes (17680) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 25, 2017
Muddy, light brown, no head. The oak comes through, the raspberry comes through, some woody notes...all the elements here. Nice, oaky, light raspberry, tart...complex...I like this stuff. Very good. And for rare barrel to have this sort of balance, restraint and sophistication.

Extreme Beer Fest 2017. Pours a very clear copper or amber with no head and no lacing. Nose is of raspberries and just pretty cool overall. Spicy oak. Taste is a little jammy, moderately acidic and offering bright raspberries again. Body is medium, carbonation very low. Slight throat burn from the acid but not too bad. Not bad at all but the acid could be toned down a little or maybe balanced out by something else. ajnepple (6622) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 13, 2017
3 oz bottle pour at Hops & Pie, vintage 2016. Reddish brown and clear in appearance with a diminishing head. Aroma of raspberries, oak, sour funk, tart fruits and light vanilla. Similar flavor, sour, tart and puckering with a mild fruity sweetness. Light to medium body with a tart and sour finish. Pucker up. drowland (8730) - Georgia, USA - APR 4, 2017
