A - dark rose/violet color. Pour produces about an inch of loose white head that dissipates quickly. Very little lacing.
S - light vinegar, apple cider, berries, funkiness and wet hay on the back end which increases as it warms up.
T - punch of medium sour up front, then some raspberry which smoothes out into a blueberry flavor and some strawberry. As with the nose, there is funk on the back that increases in nature as it warms up.
M - high carbonation feel, even with the lack of head. Nice light mouth feel. Only (small) complaint is an increase in syrupy feel as it goes along.
O - I really liked this beer. It's about 2 years old at this point, which I think did it well. The blueberry definitely isn't prominent, which may have to do with the age, but the balance of berry flavors as well as the funkiness are very well blended. Very enjoyable, elegant almost. I would definitely pick this up again, limited only by the price, which is too high.
