Palme (3533) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 4, 2013
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013. This is a near murkybrown plum-blue one with a small pinkish and grey top. Doesn’t really smell all that much or blackberries, more of flour, old still water and something light sweet. When I think of it, that sweetness has a light fruity nuance. Great refreshing flavors with a soft sourness, I get some light brett tones and here the dry blackberries actually shines through. The acidity is kinda mixing in between the blackberries. Dry flour-ish finish and the aftertaste is lovely tart. 04.05.2013

Scopey (7193) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2013
Keg at Euston Tap. It pours darkest purple-brown with a small pinkish head. The nose is sweet grape juice, over-ripe blackberry, blueberry, earth, light jamminess and candy. The taste is black grape skin, cherry pip, berry, earth, tart lemon, lime, earth, moderate acidity, sherbet, vinous and granny smith apple with a dry, tart finish. Light-medium body and fizzy carbonation. A bit sickly sweet on the nose after a while, but deliciously tart on the taste. Tasty.

Keg at the Euston tap. Dark black red colour with a pinkish cream head. Aroma is tanin grape skin dry. Flavour is super dry tanin. Nice fruit presence. Some woody expression. Very enjoyable.

MartinT (8024) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2013
My Bottom Line:
Juicy and resolutely sour, this Brodie’s brew shines through its clear depictions of blackberry fruitiness moving effortlessly towards an acidic, puckering finish.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam floats atop the purple-hued darkness.
-The mouthfeel is lean and very bubbly.
-This may not be the most complex sour fruit beer out there, but that doesn’t mean it’s not expertly crafted and exactly what someone ordering a beer with such a name wants.
-A mineral twang accompanies the sour finish.
-The fruity bouquet is truly beautiful.

On tap at The Evening Star, Brighton.
