750 ml bottle - 2015 bottling. Brilliant looking cherry red body with a soft pink fizzy head. No lacing and only a thin retention ring. Aromas of cherry pie, blackberry, sour, and funk. Flavors are bright fruits; cherry and blackberry are dominant. Gooseberry I have never had alone so I'm not sure if I can pick it out. Plenty sour and funky. Does taste a bit young now, but wow it is ready to drink. I would love to revisit this beer in a few years.

Lovely peachy-orange-red. Tons of funk with some berries and fruit on the nose. Taste is similar with some old dank wood. Jeffo, you sexy sexy man, can't thank you enough.
