Bottle that I took to the Where the Wild Beers Are event graciously hosted by Mission Dolores. Pours a tawny brown with a thin beige head. Blackberry, toast, acid and vanilla on the nose. Sweet and sour with some acid through the middle. Supple and smooth, nice long acids.

RBSG Tasting. Definitely blackberry in the aroma and flavor, but not a whole lot. Highly carbonated. Weak palate. Nice brett, might be just blackberry character.

boFNjackson (4191) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 11, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2010 Bottle [Purchased from Bottleworks, probably a 2008, maybe 2009, but I’m guessing most likely a 2008]... Poured deep, burgundy, very cloudy, opaque, with a beige head. Aroma was faint fruit, tart, yeast, spice complexity. Tasted of cocoa powder, tootsie roll, candy sweetness with fruit and berry coming in. Very tart, dry, and puckering on top of all that. A sincere pleasure to drink.

Shared at the 2010 RBSG Grand Tasting. Poured dark blueberry purple with a brown head. Aroma had a bit of sweet grain but lots of dark berries, particularly blackberry. Flavor began with sweet grains but both sweet and tart black berries quickly took over.

Dirty maroon body with a small beige head. The nose is nice and fruity- lots of berries with light caramel. Moderate to light sweetness, lightly tart with berry and cola. Medium body is soft with light carbonation.

Courtesy of HOPSHUNTER. It pours mahogany with rose hues and tan head. The aroma is inviting with sweet and spiced apples, yeasty spices, berry notes and growing tartness on a deep pull. The taste has pleasing notes of spices and red apple then picking up pear notes as well as sweet berry and growing tartness. It gets Brett like from time to time and it ends refreshing.

Thanks to Hopshunter for the share. Pours red-brown with a white head. Nose is berry and slight vinegar. Flavor is fizz, berry, vinegar, and mild acidity. Finish lingers with tart berry. Light to medium-bodied and fizzy from start to finish.
