Poured from 375ml bottle into glass. Label has 4.5% for ABV. No bottling date information found.
Cloudy, reddish colored body. Active foamer upon opening. One finger fizzy white head settles to ring and islands. Strings of lacing on glass.
Raspberry aroma with green grape and green apple. A little yeasty funk in the background.
Taste is mostly tart raspberry with touches of vinous green grape and funky yeast. Some oak barrel.
Medium mouth feel, some fizziness. Some berry sweetness. Quite dry on the finish.
This is a sour fruit beer of some complexity. Attractive appearance, with the funk yeast keeping this from being a total tart/sour experience.

375 ml bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy ruby reddish/pinkish orange color with a 1 finger fairly dense light pink head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big tart/sour raspberries, fruit skin/seeds, lemon, lime, green apple, red grape, white wine, hay, straw, grass, oak, wheat, cracker, and white bread; with light notes of oaken vanilla, leathery/musty funk, pepper, and yeast/oak earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruit/funky/acidic yeast, raspberries, oak, and light-moderate pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tart/sour raspberries, fruit skin/seeds, lemon, lime, green apple, red grape, white wine, hay, straw, grass, oak, wheat, cracker, and white bread; with light notes of oaken vanilla, leathery/musty funk, pepper, and yeast/oak earthiness. Light-moderate fruity/lactic tartness, fruit tang, and light yeast/oak spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of tart/sour raspberries, fruit skin/seeds, lemon, lime, green apple, red grape, white wine, hay, straw, grass, oak, wheat, cracker, white bread, pepper, light funk, and yeast/oak earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of fruit/funky/acidic yeast, raspberries, oak, and light-moderate pale malt flavors; with an awesome malt/tartness balance, and zero puckering/astringent flavors after the finish. Moderately crisp/clean finishing. Moderate increasing dryness from tartness, tangy fruit, and carbonation. Medium-high carbonation and light body; with a very smooth, moderately grainy/acidic/tangy, and lightly tannic balanced mouthfeel that is fantastic. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.5%. Overall this is an outstanding fruit sour ale! All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance fruit/funky/acidic yeast, raspberries, oak, and light-moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink with the modestly lactic/tangy/drying finish. Not as jammy as I would have liked; but this has awesome well rounded Brett/Lacto complexity; great authentic raspberry fruit and oak presence; with a solid malt backbone to control the acidity. A highly enjoyable offering.
