Poured into a Bruery goblet.
Bottle opened with a nice "pop". The pour reveals a 1/2" white fluffy head that dissipates fairly quickly. Raspberries and slight vinegar on the nose. Slight tang and berry taste at first. Very well balanced sour.
This is the best beer that The Bruery brews. IMHO.

Shows off a magnificent apricot hue in the glass with a thin white head. Aromas of sweet and sour peach, great funk, fruity, sweet citrus. Awesome acetic flavors mixed with sour fruity pebbles, kick ass funk.
An amazing beer that's aging gracefully.

2013 batch. Tulip glass.
A: Pours a light pale color with a quickly fizzling, fluffy cap of bright white head, quickly receding to a ring. Minimal to no lacing but above average retention.
S: Nicely funky, lovely oak and cinnamon, vanilla, loads of raspberry, lime, berliner, and floral notes.
T: Dry raspberry and some citrus and green notes, wheat, oak, complemented by the funk and quite light tartness, with kind of a sweet and sour finish. The berliner definitely shows through.
M: This doesn’t drink like an 8% beer. A little milky, with medium body and medium-high carbonation.
O: Highly drinkable and very good complexity. The oak treatment is really nice, but I’m not entirely sure I can detect the red wine’s influence.

Opened at TN whales tasting 3/16/2013. Thanks to CurtisMcArthur for sharing.
Pours a very light yellow gold color topped with a nice white head, from the appearance you'd have no idea there were raspberries in this.
Smells of bread, brett, and some faint berry fruit. Really not much fruit in this though.
Taste is tart in an unusual way, fairly wheaty/bready, touch of faded raspberry, there's an oddness to the flavor I can't quite place. Pretty light.
This is very good but not spectacular. I don't know if there wasn't much fruit to begin with or if it's just really faded after two years, but I was expecting a lot more fruit and a bit more sourness.
