3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hand bottle with huge thanks to gorditoabd. Pours a lovely red color with a big soap sudsy head and sour and fruity aromas. Favor is a delightfully simple mix of berry patch and sourness... I wouldn’t accuse this beer of being overly complex, but it’s damn good. Mouthfeel was a bit chalky at first, but it seems to have fixed itself and is just plain nice now.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught Pink bubbles over gorgeous cardinal/Bordeaux red beer. Pure freshly picked brambles, but little else. Some taster say cedar. Rather thin, if nice, fruitflavour, again clearly blackberry. Tart finish. Dry, very dry, if a bit thinnish body. Nice... the AKA name, however is nonsensical, it is about as much lambic as Belle-Vue is, these days.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at the Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours reddish black (or purple?) with a slight pinkish head. Aroma of tart/sour berry - but some sweet aroma too. Near med body. Flavor is more tart than sour. Very berry. Goes quite astringent eventually. Tasty. Adventure: Mixed some 50/50 with the Berryessa Whippersnapper. Chocolate and blackberry = good!

On draft somewhere in San Diego... It pours red with a distinct aroma of blackberries and wheat. The flavor is lightly tart fruity and very effervescent. Good blackberry flavor and a bready finish. Nice refreshing beer.
