Bottle shared by ygtbsm94. Thanks Brad!

The beer is a deep purple with a pink head. Huge blackberry aroma. Pie crust, wild yeast. Wow, this is tasty. Sour and puckering, settling in the jaws with a gentle acetic quality. Long lasting after taste. Huge blackberry and jammy quality throughout. While the rarity adds to the allure of this beer, there's no doubt this is a stellar brew. One of, if not the, best from New Glarus.
