Draft. Pours murky purple with an off-white head. Some retention/little lace. Aroma of funk, berry, floral notes. Taste is very tart, berry, funk, earth, medicinal notes. Palate is average carbonation, slick, puckering finish.

Not very good beer. But sounds good. Good descriptions but not that good of a beer. Flavors are Belgian like. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at brewpub. Quite sour, but the fruit and some sweetness still comes through. A little too sour for my tastes but casual sour fans will enjoy it and even hardcore sour fans will find it acceptable.

Draft @ brewery. Belgian yeast, and tart berry aroma. I don’t really know what a boysenberry smells like, but this did smell like some sort of berry. Hazy deep rose with a small white head. Light banana, tart berry, slightly funky Belgian yeast, and light spicy flavor. Body on the light side of medium, moderate carbonation.

crossovert (7403) - Illinois, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Draft. Wanted to really like this one,a boysenberry ale. It is a bit weak overall, nice boyseberry flavor but just a weaker sort of saison-like brew.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 28, 2012
Draft at GTMW 12. Gotta say, I was disappointed by this one overall. Pours a hazed reddish copper with a thin head. The nose is lactic, fruity berry notes and caramel then an odd hit of acetone? A bit of heat. On tasting, it is on the sweeter side, medium bodied and dries out. Fruity overall, light acidity. Really odd beer.

madvike (2733) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 24, 2012
On tap at GTMW - Pours rosy amber, hazy with no head. Nose is honey berry, real fruity and not sour at all. Taste is real sweet and fruity, not sour, with mineral and blackberry. Smooth and slick in the mouth, but thin. Looked forward to this, but pretty disappointing.

vyvvy (3996) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Sampled at the Midwest Belgian Beer Fest 2012 - Pours light amber with an off-white head. The aroma has lots of boysenberry and sweetness. Seems high on sugar and low on beer. Medium smooth rich body with a light amount of carbonation. The flavor starts with some spice, fruit, mild sourness and some malt and then turns into rich boysenberry pie filling that seems to have piths and all. The finish dries out a bit and has a very true berry taste. Nice beer, but would have rather had more sourness involved.
