Batch 3 shared on 3-31-18. Pours a dark violet, reminding me of wine. Smells great, with funk for days. Initial kiss of sweet followed by a smash to the face of tartness, and finishes with one of the best blackberry flavors I've ever gotten out of a beer. Could almost taste the seeds this was so flavorful. While I've heard from friends that b3 has been unpleasant, this bottle was fantastic.

Shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice dark purple ruby hue with a thin pink head that fades to leave light wisps.

S - Aromas of big seedy black raspberries, jammy fruit, nice tart berries, light vinegar.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with lovely jammy berry notes. Nice raspberries, good lightly flemmy vinegar, almost strawberry like, good red berries.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, crisp, but on the flemmy side.

O - Overall this was a very solid wild ale, great raspberries, though the finish is rather acidic.

Gorgeous beer that presents and immediate juxtaposition of colors - green bottle, deep purple hue. There’s just something appealing (even bold) about putting a delicate, well-crafted beer in a green bottle. Certainly speaks to the fact that Fencerow is a quintessential cellar beer and will never see a shelf at a store.

Purple, almost red, hue with a frothy cap of foam that dissipates quickly. Looks like a glass of red wine.

Aroma is spectacular - tart, jammy, raspberry pie filling, grapes, oak, fresh berries. More tart than sour; there’s a light funkiness to it that’s way down the line behind the fruit and wine-barrel flavors.

Heavy on the wine-like tannins, dry, woody, tart, sweet and earthy raspberry with hints of green apple and a melange of berries, from boysen to blackberry. Tartness hits like an electrical zap to the back of the tongue and corner of the checks. Huge berry taste but well rounded and not overwhelming. A classic.
