The beer pours a dull, cloudy, dark amber with a sticky, foamy, off-white head that laces. The nose has a pungent berry sweetness upfront followed by whiskey barrel notes and a little orange juice concentrate. The taste is an amalgam of citrus-berry, semi-syrupy sweetness and harsh tannins from the oak and berry skin. This beer's medium, semi-sweet body is a bit more syrupy than airy and packs a bitter tannic punch, while having a slight tartness that makes each sip refreshing. A lingering berry-whisky flavor satiates and challenges the palate. Pairings with this beer would be tough, more of a novelty in my opinion, but worth sitting on for a few months before drinking.

Light brown in color with lots of small active carbonation bubbles. A half inch head of tightly knit off white foam is on top. Brussels lacing. Aroma is full of Brett and Chardonnay but is a bit subdued. The body is heavily carbonated and crisp. The sourness of the Brett pricks the tongue. I also get the tartness of the blackberries and raspberries and the Brett on the fade. It seems to lose complexity as it warms.

Pour was a brigt copper, light head, light lacing, fairly crisp.
Very dominant raspberry and blackberry, lighter funk and spice. Hints of malt.
Very combination of raspberry and blackberry. Lighter hints of dry red wine and grape. A bit of malt and spice beneath. Layered very well.
Light and easy, dry finish. A bit sticky.
For a first BA release, homerun. This is a farmhouse ale, half barred aged with raspberries and half with blackberries, then combined.
