3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at SB. Pours a murky and very dark purple, nearly black, with that pinkish purple foam on top, settling quickly. Big sweet nose, jammy, tons of berries, minimal lemony counterpoint. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Brilliant sweet crystal clear forward powerful jammy blackberry notes all over the mid palate, tart, just slightly puckery. Finish is just slightly puckery. Very, very nice beer.

Listed simply as Ballast Point Sour Wench. Draft pour pint at Special Brews. Was unsure on the variation, until the first sio, then it was obvious. Pours an almost purple color with a thin bubbly head. Sour red grape, and mixed berry aroma. Flavor closely matches. Sour wheat finish. A little on the strong side. Iím suprised. Does not have any different feel than the typical sub 5% berliner. Thick body, full flavor. Quite tasty.

Draft. Deep cranberry hue with a fluffy pink-speckled head. The aroma leads with sweet Marion blackberry, followed closely by wheat, lemon peel and lactic acid. Some peppercorns as well. The flavorís very clean, with a snappy tartness that remains in balance with the fruit. The blackberries are a little subtle for me, though. Could use a boost in flavor, as itís a little lifeless.

Had on tap at National in Calgary. Pours a bright purplish red with no head but for a few off white bubbles. The nose is tart, fruity, a bit sweet and rather mild with a pinch of acetic sourness. Light, refreshing and oh so easy drinking like juice almost. The finish is a bit tart with light sour notes. Very easy going!
