RB

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.
