Great blackberry arms. Very tart and very acidic. Grea none the less as blackberries helped balance out sharp tartness.

2014 bottle. Purple/ruby, pink head. Nose is lactic blueberry, blackberry, some wood, light floral, light fishy, smarties. Flavor is blueberry/raspberry, lactic smarties, some woody tannins. Finish rounds out a bit but ends up a bit flabby / too wide.

Bright red with a pink head. Aroma of blackberries, blackcurrants, raspberry and more fruit, light yogurt. Taste is filled with blackberry, with a hint of caramel in the background. Very fruit forward and tasty, but not very complex, and way too pricy.

MacBoost (1563) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - JUL 23, 2015
Bottle. Puckering tart unripe fruit mixes with yogurt to form an orgasm of blackberry purée in your mouth. Seedy. Shady. Deceitful. Delectable.

750ml corked bottle pours a bright red color with a fizzy quick dissipating pink head that leaves only a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is blackberries with some lemon and light woody, earthy tones. Taste is a bold blackberry and lemon tartness with a light malty sweetness and a dry finish. Medium bodied with abundant carbonation that tickles the tongue. Considering the price, this is not an outstanding ale, but still quite an enjoyable brew.

Strong blackberry and lactic sour aroma. Taste is lactic sour maybe 5 of 10. Not the most sour cascade but still very sour. Blackberry, dark fruit, woody, not too sweet with a tannic dry bitter blackberry finish. Complex and really an awesome sour. Love the use of blackberry. Lots of flavor. Thought the body was a little lighter than some and I see it is a blend of wheat ales. Still a ton of flavor and amazingly complex. Love it ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Paigeturner (101) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 9, 2015
This brewery rocks!!!!Only down side is huge money for this 750 bottle....forty bucks ouch. Never the less worth it as it has so much going on. Huge blackberry aroma off the start. Poured rose red. Light head. Flavors of everything, from hay, awesome fresh blackberries and ending of very tart acids. After all that the blackberries cruise back in for the finish line. A+

On tap @ the brewery, RBSG. Lovely bright purple pink. Ripe blackberries and moderate acetic sourness. Juicy, clean, refreshing.

(En dégustation au Stone Sour Fest 2015): Des mûres affolées, confiturées qui finissent par se calmer dans une soupe minérale et assoupie.
