4.44/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 500ml bottle purchased at the brewery into an ALPACA MAGI GLASS:

Appearance: pours pretty dark and pinkish-purple in color, with very little white head. Loads of little bubbles, with constant carbonation visible. Beer is moderately hazy, with no visibility through the brew. Color matches the label on the beer.

Aroma: loads of berries, some oak, some vanilla. Lots to like here, and very inviting for a sour. On the tart scale, maybe a 5? Not super tart at all on the nose. The taste, however......

taste: extremely pungent berry flavor. Soft, fleshy taste, but also packed with lots more tartness than the smell would indicate. Pretty oaky, a fair amount of vanilla and lacto. On the whole, it's a berry bomb, with moderate to high tartness, and is a grand slam for me.

Feel: crisp as hell, but full-bodied and palate-coating in the middle and finish. Leaves some tartness on the palate.

Overall: maybe my favorite beer I've tried from Proclamation? It's an awesome, awesome sour, with tons and tons of delicious berry flavor.

4.58/5  rDev +1.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Look: Translucent ruby red with a pink head. Mild activity.

Smell: Tart funk, fresh raspberries, tart cherries, warm oak,hints of vanilla, blackberries, and blueberries. All the berries.

Taste: Mellow tart greets the palate with a pleasant farm house funk. This gets enveloped by tart cherries, fresh raspberries, fresh blackberries, and warming oak. Finish is lingering blueberries with funk.

Feel: Mellow tart throughout. Light-Medium body. Good carbonation. No booze present.

Overall: Wow. A fresh fruited sour that dials in the sour to compliment the fruit. The funk is enticing and fleeting making you want another sip. The berries are so bright and fresh and the warming oak really brings it all together. One wild trip of a sour. Excellent.

Shared a bottle on Saturday night.

A - Absolutely beautiful beer...magenta in color, very small whitish head that dissipates quickly.
S - I smell all the berries!! Raspberry, subtle cherry, blueberry and blackberry are all there. Smells fruit juicy!
T - Oh man...perfect amount of everything going on. Very fruit forward with a very balanced sourness to finish. Little bit of oak. Outstanding!
M - Fantastic...excellent carbonation, drinks crisp and somewhat dry.
O - Easily one of the best sours I've ever had. This is one of those beers that'll leave a lasting impression and have me wanting to get my hands on more. Dave, Josh and all the guys at Proclamation really have things dialed in with this one!
