4.16/5  rDev -2.8%

Appearance: Clear deep garnet/dark copper. Oranges, reds, and browns. Head is a very light tan/off-white. Creamy with decent retention. Tight bubble structure. Lively carbonation on the pour.

Smell: Tart and funky. Big barrel influence pushes oak and tons of vinous notes. Dark fruit, blackberry and currant. Raspberry in abundance. Lemon zest and raspberry jam. Macerate 'em good. Some acetic and lactic sourness to the whole thing. Fresh green apple. Builds a solid layered tartness fused with some earthy undertones. Loaded with berries.

Taste: Crazy acetic raspberry vinaigrette. Big pushes of leather through a slightly sweet fruitiness. Raspberry dominates with some deep blackberry and currant. Even some plum back there. Tart lemon zest. Runs citric with some lactic in the middle. Deep barrel influence with oak and a huge vinous character on the back. Building acetic bite as it warms. Completely obliterated raspberry flesh. Granny smith apple. Slighty funk in the back adds a mild earthy note.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with a moderate carbonation. Bracingly dry at times, with a puckering tart finish. Juicy on the sip.

Overall: Latin for ballin'.

Age will only make this beer better. Loaded with fruit (which will likely drop out over time), but with enough funk and bug influence to keep me excited for years.

4.06/5  rDev -5.1%

Appearance: Pours out with a garnet color and a pretty impressive head that delivers some lace

Smell: Vinous and tart, with green apple and strawberry tones

Taste: Very acetic from the get-go, with tart green apple, vinous grape and strawberry jam flavors; oaky elements develop in the middle and the acetic quaility builds into the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation; very puckery

Overall: Only for those who like their sour beers very sour as this beer hits that button
