The beer inside this bottle is our homage to the brewers who came before us; a tribute to those who paved the road on which we walk and discreetly left a breadcrumb trail for us to follow. It is for the beer geeks, the tickers and raters, and the newbies who opened their minds to try something new and unfamiliar. It is something that comes from our heart, an offering of appreciation for the supporting us and allowing us to play in the game. The beer in this bottle wouldn't exist with out you.

With appreciation,

SARA

SARA strikes again. So much fruit, perfect amount of tart. SARA continues to dominate this style in my opinion. This beer is so balanced, at the same time it has a TON of flavor.

750ml bottle poured into fluted snifter.

Ruby red, pink edges when held to light. Fairly opaque with whispy pink head that settles into small collar that rings the glass. A tiny floating island of froth and bubbly lacing clings to the side of the glass.

Aroma is fairly subdued, get a hint of tartness, jam, and sweet red wine grapes.

Flavor is not subdued. Layers of berry, red wine grapes both sweet and tannic. Tart berries, sweet jammy berries, modest earthy funk and hint mineral.

Dry, crisp, tart. A little bit of tongue coating, but overall a good mouth feel.

Excellent brew with tons of flavor. Layers of fruit. Tartness doesn't overpower any other aspect.
