ballast point sour wench. consumed at hunahpus day 2012....pours a purplish pink semi-transparent hue and topped with a thin wispy head... aroma of semi-tart blackberries and backing grains... flavors are sweet and sour with a blackberry essence. refreshing with a lighter than medium bodied with average carbonation. not terrible in any way but pales to some of the other offerings.

Pours reddish pink with white head. Aroma is tart berries. Taste starts strong with tart/sour berries but quickly fades to an adjunct maltness. Finish is strangely bland. Body is thin. Drain pour.

On draft poured a dark red color, aromas of tart blackberries. Flavor is the same but not overpowering tartness. It was a nice blend of blackberries and tartness that went well on a hot day in the sun.

Nothing too exciting about this beer. There was nothing wrong with it but nothing to stand out. Seem fruit and tartness in a red murky liquid.

Tap at the ColLAboration Winterfest 2012. It pours ruby, with a thin pink head. The nose is sweet blackberry, blackcurrant and raspberry. The taste is sour blackberry, blackcurrant, Granny Smith apple, pear, red apple, raspberry and wood, with pear in the finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Nice fruity tartness. Not particularly complex, but utterly drinkable. Delicious.

Draught at Tadg’s. Glowing blood crimson with lace. Aroma of blackberry, with slight funk and acid. Super dry flavor with light yogurt and wood, blackberry, and a nice sourness. Some caramel Interesting and drinkable with good sourness and dryness overall.

Draft at Beer Revolution - Absolutely gorgeous pinkish head. Ruby red body. Aroma of a milk shake. Clear sour flavor of berries. Not sour yeasts though. Thinnish body. Tartness on the palate in the aftertaste. Reminds me of a huckleberry beer I made once.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2015 Draft. Pours almost purple. Rich berry notes, relatively mild sweetness, light acidity, and a fresh tart fruity finish. Very enjoyable.
