Wow, can't believe I finally got to try this extreme rarity. Bottle very generously shared by ipa247 on BA up in Santa Rosa. Big thanks to Jeff for this one.

Pours a cloudy reddish-brown color with a nice off white head and some lacing.

Excellent aroma - sour raspberries and cherries, sweet malts, and vinous notes.

Flavor is actually somewhat sweet, not as tart as I expected although the tartness is definitely there. Very fruity and vinous with lots of raspberry and cherry, sweel caramel malts and toffee, barrel notes, and a little belgian yeast.

Medium full body with a nice mouthfeel and average carbonation. Not too much acidity.

Extremely drinkable for the ABV. Overall this wasn't quite as mind-blowingly amazing as I expected given the RateBeer hype, but is a very good beer, one I would definitely want to try again.
