Batch 4

Thanks for Mike for this one

App- Well color me pink. I didnt think this would be such a wonderful color. The pinks and reds and purples intermixed into a liquid raspberry (in no other words to say it) jam color. A small pinkish white head with only about 1/2" in of thickness was there and then gone. Didnt leave any stick or cling.

Smell- I liked the nose. A bit sweet and cloying but that was expected. A nice aroma of sour, oak and raspberry filled the nostrils. A bit of sugars permeated as well and wofted up. As it warmed it became a little thicker and more sweet vs. pure oak.

Taste- This was pretty good. I enjoyed the raspberry flavor intermixed with a solid oak and barrel flavor. Almost like a jam flavor but suprisingly light. The flavors melded well and created a lush flavor. A very good after dinner beer.

Mouth- Light bodied with a light and fizzy carbonation level. Delicate and flavorful.

Drink- Glad I traded for it.

Amazing color, had a nice dirt and grassy flavor, plenty of funk, pleasantly dry without being overly sour. An experience

Batch 4, poured into a wine glass at a fantasy football draft.

Unbelievable color of pinkish reddish beauty. Thin pink head. The smell is amazing. Just amazing raspberry, oak, and funk. Taste is perfect, with acidy raspberry jammy goodness. Funk comes in waves between the sweetness of the raspberries. A phenomenal beer.
