Nice glow of lighter purple with a light lavender head that is pretty quick to dissipate. Ridiculously difficult to remove wax and cork (the lip of the bottle chipped under the force of my waiters corkscrew), but stylish presentation and informative label.

Smell is spritzy and sweet, with just a hint of barnyard. The huckleberry is pleasantly pronounced.

Taste is a punch of lacto up front with a quick, bone dry finish. Not getting the berry, but this was released in 2016 (3 years after brew), so even if they added the fruit before bottling, it's had time to be consumed by the bugs.

Mouthfeel is light and dry, this one is a real tongue curler.

Drinkability is ok, it's super tart, but also quite light. Really bummed the fruit had already faded on the palate, but it has a great nose.

Bottle from brewery. Color is mahogany / ruby. Bubbly head disappears. Tart fruity aroma, wine-like notes. Taste starts with sweet berry flavors, tartness follows soon after. Quite a bit of pucker too. Then it dries out, with some lingering sweetness.
