This is hands down one of the prettiest looking beers ever. The magenta head color. The deep purple/black raspberry color. Musty, powdery and floral aromatics. Blackberry jam and yogurt.

This one pours a very dark reddish purple color, nearly black, with a small head, and a little bit of lacing.

This smells like a ton of seedy and slightly spicy sour black raspberry, with oak and red wine.

This has quite a bit of black raspberry here, as expected by the color of this beer. It still finishes with a dry oak taste, and a touch of jammy red wine. Though there's a lot of fruit here, it's mostly sour, with very little jammy sweetness. I only say this because the color just intimates an expected jamminess.

This is light bodied, and very drinkable, with a nice dry finish.

This is mid-tier for the series, but the series has been almost entirely a win, so that still leaves a great beer.

750ml corked/caged bottle served in a pair of Cantillon glasses. Handwritten date is 6-13-18. Don't see an ABV anywhere on the bottle.

Pours purple. Syrupy purple. Dark, inky purple. With a purple head that fades fast. I just drank a Grrrz earlier today and really enjoyed it, and this level of purple makes me excited about the level of raspberry I will find. Smell is tart, fruity, but muted.

Taste is moderate tartness, more of a fruit juiciness than a gueuze flavor. Has a bitterness that makes me think of the skin and seeds of raspberry, and maybe even leaves or stems.

Mouthfeel is very dry, light. Overall, it's a good beer, but the bitterness described previously is a little too strong for it to be great, and I'd like a little bit stronger tartness.
