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.

A pinkish blonde beer. Aroma and flavor are more tart than sour, and also more tart than fruity. Would have like the blackberries to be a little more heavy, but this is still a good beer, even without the fruit. Almost very rustic saison vs super scidic wild. Easy drinking and pleasant, but...I can get that for a lot less than $11 a bottle :)"

Grapefruit pink color. Hard to get a nose. Certainly acidic and juicy. Clearly blackberry. Had that classic almanac acidity and tongue wrenching sour not the most sour beer but it’s up there. Nice mouthfeel for a draft offering. Blackberry flavor is muted. Closer to peach and raspberry

Draft for the Almanac 3rd birthday tap take over at Toronado, SF. Strange pink, purple gold like color. Aroma is sour oak, light musty basement and tart blackberry.
Flavor has just enough berry to provide a tartness that helps counter balance the funky oak notes. Dont misunderstand, it still has plenty of sourness and lactic acid but the berry help cut through it and gives another layer of flavor. Not sure how old the keg is but I preferred this over the Reserve citrus I had 10 minutes before this.

Apricot golden red hued, ivory foam fine and persistent small head, slightly trace oily surface, hazy. Dominant clean lactic sour, milk cream, mild fruit berry aromas, hay pastoral, light wood, straw, raspberry tang, light chalky mineral. Feel is light mineral spritzy. sour lightly salty finish. Wonderful.

Bottle. Pour is almost pink, with little to no head. Pungent tart aroma. Taste is lip puckering! Tart and delicious. Very sour and the blackberries provide a nice balance to the light malt base. Slightly acidic and yeasty. Nice beer!

Wow...this is good. Beautiful peach color and tart funky fruitiness in the nose. Lots of carbination, super tart blackberry flavor with sweet oak lingering in there. The wine barrel addition make this great, especially with the Brett finish.

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.
