4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
A tart smelling acidic aroma. An appearance that is a bit murky and rose colored. A sour to be sure but, very well balanced and beautify smooth palate make it an intense but pleasurable experience.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
375ml bottle via trade. Pours a hazed dark pink/orange with a scant head. Aromas of seedy blackberry yogurt and jam, although no sweetness detected in the nose. Taste is a mix of tart and semi sweet blackberries/non-script berries straight from the vine. Pretty fucken great. Did I mention seedy? Like a mix of unripened and ripe blackberries were mixed in a blender with Greek yogurt. Seriously seedy and floral. Great. Mid-mouth we have a lactic tartness which produces a pronounced pucker. The finish is semi dry, tart and full of berries. This is a worlds class beer and miles ahead of the dog patch entries from almanac. Kudos.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to Blake! Pour is hazy grapefruit-juice-looking with a very quickly dissipating head. Aroma is funky, tart, basement smells, and light fruit. Flavor is very very tart with light berry and light red wine. I like the tartness of this but it does not have a lot of depth. Fortunately, the flavor it has is great.

Shared at July 1st Sunday. Wow this series is sour stuff. Like this version better than the Strawberry as the Blackberry shines a lot brighter. Super tart, juicy blackberries, some funk, crisp biscuity. Good stuff.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle thanks to my local group for sharing. Amber pour with a small fizzy head that fades to a thin ring. Aroma smells like overripe blackberries, red wine, and lemons. Tastes like sweet blackberries at first then quickly turns very sour and tart. Some vinegar and red wine too. Very nice sour.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of Tart blackberries, sour lemon, white grapes, and vinous notes. It pours a transparent amber with a small white head that quickly fades to almost nothing. The flavor starts with a quick dose of blackberries. The finish has heavy sour lemon and sour white grapes. It’s light bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, I think this the sour Almanac I like best.

Draft. Hazy pinkish peach hue. Lightly fruity and slightly funky aroma. Lots of fresh berry. Taste is bright, fresh tart blackberry, funky and slightly puckering. Not overly sweet. Refreshing.

375mL bottle from Plumpjack. Hazy pink-orange color with a small bubbly white head. Big acetic and vinous fruit aroma. Blackberry and funk. Very tart and acetic flavor, sharp and crisp with blackberry and barrel notes. Nice mouthfeel, really biting and acidic with lively carbonation. Another great one from the Almanac guys.
