Poured from the 750 into a large stemmed tulip.
Pours a dark rub color with one finger of head, decent retention.
Smells of dark fruit and brett sourness.
Tastes great, huge flavor, sweetness from berry fruit and lots of brett sourness.
Finishes crisp and dry considering the sweetness in the beer.
I loved this beer.

look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

look - pours a dark brown/ruby red color. thick tan head. not so much retention or lacing

smell - raisns/grapes, malty, musty, sort of chocolaty, has that aged smell. overall a very strong, pleasant aroma.

taste - absolutely delicious. tastes like raspberries with some citrusy character and hints of raisins. the sour tickles the tongue. finishes sweet and savory

feel - creamy, smooth, tingly

overall - super delicious. am going to buy again and also try other versions of this style ale.
