Served from the bottle at Side Project Cellar's 2nd Anniversary party. Pours a beautiful light purple hue with small white head. Initially the beer is quite clear, but as consumed, the particulates cloud it up, making it look like juice. Smells have that typical Side Project funk. Good berry notes on the palate, with a good acidity on the finish, and at times pretty strong. But the fruitiness is the star of the show, and this is a very good beer. I've been told from a friend who had it "fresh", that time has done the beer well.

Semi-clear magenta with a bubbly ring.

Cheesy lactic scent gives way to blueberry, cracker, and a hint of maple.

Taste is a more acetic yet soft cherry-blueberry tang.

Quite sour, but not harsh, yet a little heartburny in the gut. Finish is very dry.
