Reviewed from notes. Poured from 11.1 oz. bottle into a Cigar City snifter.

A: Pours a pinkish copper, moderately hazy. Forms a thin white head with low visible carbonation. 3.25/5

S: Fruity raspberry, lactic tartness, acidic, and modestly funky. There's a light malt presence in the background as well. 16.5/20

T: Follows the nose - funky lactic tart, underripe raspberries, acetic undertones, a delicate light malt and what seems like wheat as well. There's a bit of funky barnyard with a touch of feet to it. Tartness lasts into the hang. 34.5/45

M: Medium body, very low alcohol presence. Carbonation sensation a bit on the low side. 8/10

O: I found this to be enjoyable. Doesn't compete at all with some of the best fruited sours, but a serviceable change of pace. The balance of between sourness and complexity left something to be desired. 16/20

On tap at Bittercreek's 2014 Funkfest... Hefty pour into a large goblet... orangish with a definite pinkish tinge... fairly long lasting white head... nice lacing.

Nose is big bretty funk.. damp basement and wet hay/wet leather... fruit is tart and emerges more toward the end.

Flavor is dank funk with a pretty bracing sourness that is punctuated by fermented out raspberry tartness and a bit of fruit tannins.

A lot of stuff going on in this one... I enjoyed it, but doubt I would buy it again.
