Notes / Commercial Description:
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

Poured in a big Sante bulb at Sante. Big opaque purple beer with little to no head. Smells of tart blackberries and some funk, taste is mostly the same. Great beer that is reminiscent of FP#2 or (less so) de Garde's The Boysen.

Poured from bottle at brewery, initially too cold, let warm, great rich red color from boysenberries. Nice funk, with a solid tanginess from the fruit. Solid beer!

On tap at CBC 2016 - day 2. Hazy ruby with an off-white head. Fruit sourness, perfumey aroma with notes of dark berries.

On tap. Purple color with slightly pinkish head. Aroma has some acetic notes and strawberries. Taste is fruity, acidic with a generic wild berries flavor. Really dry and tart on the finish. Light body, quite effervescent.
