Huge thanks to Lum for securing this for me. Batch #: E!02I.

Pours a murky, dirty red color, with a two finger tall fluffy pink head, that falls to a tight cap, but never disappears and leaves a hefty amount of lace in its wake. There's a steady flow of small bubbles working up throughout the glass.

The smell on this beer is a thing of beauty. There's a great musty funk, tart berries, and a little bit of sweetness in there too. My sense of smell sucks, so I'm sure I'm missing tons.

The flavor can be summed up as amazing. Sour funk leads the way, followed with a light hit of bready malt, and subtle berry flavor. There's a tart funk that lingers long after each sip that begs you to take another. Again, I can't do the complexity justice, it has to be experienced. The carbonation is high, but it's perfect with the light body.

I feel like a scumbag giving a rare beer a perfect score, but it's completely justified. I wouldn't change a thing on this one, so it's earned it.
