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.

Dark brown in color, hazy with a thin head. Big sour aroma and flavor. This was a super brew with a terrific berry flavor. One of the best berry sour ales I have ever had.

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.

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.

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.
