4.34/5 rDev +1.4%
Appearance - Very carbonated with a huge head. Dark purplish color that is quite impressive.
Smell - At first I didn't get much, but then the raspberries came out from behind the intense tartness.
Taste - sweet fruit right away followed by a puckering tartness
Mouthfeel - even with all the carbonation and tartness this beer is very impressive
Overall - this beer is phenomenal! for almost a session beer this one was great. glad I finally found one on the shelves

375 ml bottle from tread with Homer321. Thanks buddy! Bottle No. 2 of my Last Night of My 20s tasting. Pours dark reddish brown slightly murky, with a big airy khaki head on top. Aroma of lots of cherries, sour vinegar, oak, some toffee. Flavor is sour cherries, acidic tones, vinegar, and an unexpected wave of chocolatey flavors and vanilla oak tannins. Earthy spicy undertones. Interesting. Medium bodied, feeling a bit heft for only 5%, with lots of carbonation. Very interesting brew, and pretty unique.
