Bottle pour at the release, a blend of 4 different beers (ranging from 3-25 months aging)
The beer pours a cloudy coppery amber, with little sediment, and a tightly packed, white head that shows mild lacing before fading. The nose is tart with notes of vinous raspberries, oak, and definitely some funk, but no component of this beer's aroma seems overpowering. The taste is surprisingly bright and fruity, with tart berries upfront rounded out by the oak aging and malt backbone. I'd say this beer has a medium body with its big, rich flavors and modest alcohol, but it finishes lighter than expected, with a lingering, dry fruitiness. Each of the four beers blended stretch the palate on their own, but together they seem to work quite well. I'm very interested to see how this beer will evolve over time.
