4.2/5  rDev -4.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Deep dark body that you can tell if it weren't so dark would be a rich cherry red. Kind of merlot coloured. The head which swells up on the pour is a beautiful sultry lipstick red that lives hard and dies young settling into a vacant nothing that really seems a metaphor for our brief splashes on this planet, and absolute absence once it's done.

Nose is primarily sweet with a bramble of raspberries, maybe boysenberry, and a slight red wine tartness. Rich and sweet.

Flavour comes up with more of the same. Berry sweet and tart with a tart finish. This is all bramble with some red wine and a nice tart finish.

Fine points of carbonation in a dry body with a good tart finish...
I like this. I've professed my love for various berries on these pages before, and this one is a well executed berry wild ale.

Appearance - pours deep purple with dark pink head that quickly dissipates to nothing, no lacing.

Aroma - Oak, tart raspberry. light vinous aroma, mild lemon, slight funk. The aroma is very mild overall nothing is super strong.

Taste - Nice tart raspberry up front along with a mild oak. Lemon, the taste is very balanced no funk in the taste just mostly mild sour.

Feel - Medium bodied, pretty dry syrupy finish that really sticks to your mouth.

Overall - Really mild sour, nice flavors does not destroy your palate.
