Had on tap at Sticks and Stones here in Greensboro last night.Poured into a goblet a hazed straw color with a nice looking half finger white head atop.Aromas are citric with some lactic raspberry and honey,the aromas really jump out at ya.Flavors are fruity with a toasted edge up front but then a healthy dose of barnyard funkiness hits and lingers in the finish.I like this beer but Iam just not a big fan of the funk,in saying that,this is a very well made beer.

Thanks to jtd1969 for sharing this bottle

A - murky, dark orange with a big, soft, white head that has great retention

S - oak, wheat, winey, some faint raspberries

T - raspberries, some faint malt, mild tartness, additional fruity esters, oak

M - viscous, medium bodied, well carbonated

This is an interesting beer. The raspberries are present but not alone. The wine barrels add some buttery, viscous, oaky notes that do a great job in complementing the raspberries. This is definitely better than the peach offering in this series. I would definitely have this again.

Served from bottle into a Mother Earth snifter (proper!). Poured a deep ruby red-orange with a one finger white head that subsided to half a finger very slowly. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, fruit, funk, raspberries, and white wine. The flavor was of sweet malt, wheat, raspberries, funk, wine, and wood. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation.Overall this was a decent brew. It more closely related to a wine rather than a beer if I am completely honest here. Only difference was in that it had a sweet note from the raspberries. Glad I got to tick it, but doubt I would buy another bottle in the future.

BIg thanks to rudzud for sharing.

Light fizzy solid head covering, hint of lacing, very hazy orange slight nectar colored beer.

Nose is ridiculous buttery oak, just pure buttery oak, little raspberry, nice sweat caramel candy apple like malts, wafts of booze and nice Belgian esters to go with it, light dusty oak, faint pear, the more I nose the more I get a nice raspberry, little seed as well.

Taste is nice too, again starts with the buttery oak, plenty if buttery toasty oak. Then light raspberries, like fresh raspberry with the seeds and hairs in, but still light. A light sweet candy malt, grainy slight husk like malt and wheat, definite wheat, light, semi sweet candy butterscotch and toffee caramel. Some warming booze that brings faint esters too, and touch of bready yeast and raspberry seed. Finish is sweet raspberry iced cream, berry seed tannins, more buttery oak, sweet sticky, and some wheat.

Mouth is med to a bit heavier syrupy bodied, plenty of carb and some warming booze.

Overall quite nice, slightly lower than the blackberry and fig and raisin but still very nice. Wheat, nice raspberry and fruit, and plenty of buttery oak, and a nice overall drink, but a bit boozy overall.

2014 vintage. Poured from a bottle into a snifter, the beer is a rose-tinted copper coloring with a tall, frothy, bubbly, off-white head. Aromas of tart raspberry, toasted grains, and subtle notes of dry and tart chardonnay. Flavors are very tart forward, with raspberry first and foremost, and strong chardonnay fruit and dryness in the backbone. This becomes a very tart, fruity palate throughout. The smooth, crisp body keeps it drinkable, but it is definitely a sipper. The aftertaste fades quickly, but it's all raspberry fruit. The finish has a tart linger on a smooth body. My guess is this would mellow out nicely if aged.

During a recent trip to NC, I picked a bottle of this up for $19. 750ml corked and caged offering poured into a snifter. The brew appears a clear copper color with a huge frothy white head that leaves a full wall of lace sticking to the glass. A swirl revives a finger of suds back to the surface.

The aroma is unmistakeable smelling of raspberry mingled with other fruity aspects. A bit more of a fruited perfume aspect emerges from the glass as it warms with some solvent alcohol. Across the back is a little grassy edge.

The flavor includes a spicy oak character upfront almost like cinnamon and charred oak with a mild vanilla sweetness. A bit of cheesy funk into the aftertaste and solvent alcohol that starts to warm things up. Sometimes when bigger sips are taken, you can up on a mild accenting spice of wit/belgian yeast notes with faint clove that blends into the previously mentioned barrel character.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. A little boozy at times for a wit and overall an interesting offering. It is raw with oak and cinnamon-like spice that was interesting. Having drank this immediately after the blackberry version I can undoubtably state I prefered this one. However, at this price point I would not buy again.
