Got this one from the brother for my birthday!

A&S: aroma on this one is intoxicating. Very aromatic, I am getting a lot of black currants followed by acidic sourness and blueberries. Not sure if I'm getting boysenberries, but I haven't had too many boysenberries to compare it to. Color is great, cherry crimson but the head is so-so dying very quickly and leaving nothing.

T&M: Overall the taste is pretty good but a little on the medicine side especially in the aftertaste. Very fruity upfront and not as sour as I expected from the aroma. I get the black currents as it fades to the aftertaste. The body is pretty amazing. Medium to highish carbonation, and the body is medium light.

Overall: Pretty great! I am not sure of the price, so I can't give a recommendation. But I would say anything under $10 per bottle would be worth it for me.

Unknown vintage (release #5?); drank 9/17/17 @ the Yarchives.

See-through purple appearance.

An even pour yielded a small white head; almost no lace.

Blueberry, strawberry & mild tart lemon notes in the nose.

Medium thin mouthfeel.

Blueberry & dry strawberry flavors up front; mildly tart lemon notes on the finish.

Fruit forward, tart but not puckering & easy to enjoy. Well done!

A - Pours a lightly hazed ruby red with a two finger fizzy pink head.

S - Aroma is tart blueberries, boysenberries, black currants, lactic acid and oak.

T - The taste follows the aroma. Bleuberries, boysenberries, black currant, leather, ligh lactic acid and oak.

M - Medium body with medium carbonation. Soft mouthfeel with a crisp dry finish.

O - This is a very nice fruited wild ale. The balance of sweet and tart is excellent and the 8.5% ABV is hardly noticeable.
