A: pours a clear orange with two fingers of cream-colored head that fades into a frothy ring with a little lacing.

S: sour and tart raspberry aromas dominate here with some underlying Belgian sweetness.

T: tart raspberries are strong here as well with a little lacto sourness and Belgian yeast flavors. The finish is dry and tart.

M: light body with medium carbonation, this beer is nicely carbonated and drinkable.

O: a solid sour overall. Not much depth, but tasty and enjoyable.

2014 Bittercreek Funkfest.... Pours a clear pink with a hint of orange... white head rises up and leaves a decent cap... no lacing to speak of, still a very pretty brew.

Nose is more fruity than funky/wild... light oak... a bit of residual pale malt sorta distracts from the fruity qualities.

Flavor mirrors the aromas.... fruity notes are pretty much in the background, the essence is there but it definitely doesn't clobber you with the berries... a little something that reminds me of leather. Seems like a training wheels sour. Light body and pretty drinkable.

On tap at Newhall Refinery in Newhall, CA.

Pours a hazy orange-brown with a foamy beige head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is sour with malt, grain, fruit, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly sour fruit and buttery wood flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is fairly refreshing and easy to drink.
