Nice tart funk. Raspberry and blackberry notes overtaken by the funk in the taste and smell. Nice dry finish and a slight burn too.

Honestly the berries aren't working together as I hoped. Not a smooth flavor

Pours a clear, red/pink color. One inch head of an off-pink color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of raspberries, hint of blackberries, strong yeast, hint of sweet malt, sourness, and slight floral. Fits the style of an American Wild Ale. This beer was similar to a very good Lambic. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with a high carbonation level. There was also a strong dryness and tartness. Tastes of citrus (raspberry and other), hint of sweet malt, slight yeast, and strong sourness. The body was noticeably lacking in sweetness, which is rare and major selling point. Similar to some of the best Cantillon I've had; a great beer.

A - Beautiful reddish, purple color. Clear with a minimal white head.

S - Wonderful aromas of funk and berries. Very inviting.

T - Crisp and fairly dry. Lots of fruit in berries and cherries. Some funk too. I like both the fruity freshness and the general complexity.

M - A slight pucker with a nice fine carbonation.

O - This is probably my favorite WW sour so far.
