2013 bottle, thanks scot

The beer pours a dull blood orange/pink with a thin, foamy white head and touch of sediment. The nose is subtle tart raspberry with deep funk and touch of alcohol. The taste is definitely tart raspberries in the forefront with an acidic funkiness that really ramps up the fruit's juiciness. The mouthfeel is light bodied (but not watery), effervescent, tart/acidic, and definitely drinkable. This is a lighter bodied, subtle raspberry framb with a big funk presence and balanced acidity...just wish it wasn't so hard to get!
