COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Just really, really good. Oh, sure there is a laundry list of flavor and aromas, but just listing all the components wouldn’t do justice - really, the sum is much bigger than the parts. Tart, refreshing, even a little savory. I really liked this stuff. Thanks to Illinismitty for this one!

Bottle shared at BBQ with some buds. Was pretty excited to pop the top on this one. Ruby red color with very minimal head. Aroma was pretty intense. The fruit and citrus really jump out at you. Flavor is semi sweet with a nice sour tartness that hits you in the back of the jaw. A very stellar beer.

Dark rose with fair white head / Sour nose of blackberries and orchard fruit, oak, and brett / Light to medium body, tart and woody, with good balance and dry finish / Clean, mostly straight-forward flavors of fermented blackberries, apple, pear, cedar, straw, and a decent dose of barnyard funk / As always, I would prefer less new oak, and while it lacks the complexity of the best (Jolly Pumpkin), it is a fine brew.

This poured a nice dark red to light purple with a small pinkish beige head. Aroma was of nice tart blackberries, raspberries, bretty funk and definately vineous too. Flavor was a nice blend of fruity sour tartness, with some reddish wine notes, as well as light to medium funk. My favorite of the GI sours.

Pours red with a disappearing pink head. The aroma is very juicy and tart with blackberries, raspberries, red grapes, and a nice wild yeast funk and faint notes of oak. The flavor is at first very fruity with tart berries and then the brett funk and sour hits the back of your throat. Nice complexity with the oak coming through toward the finish as well. Pretty potent yet approachable. Good one from GI!

My birthday treat from Peensteen, and it did not disapoint. Great pink foamy look, great aromas of berries, cherry, raspberry. Large retained head. Well malted sour that enticed the palate. Tart, berry, great drinkability.

Bottle, 2010 - pre-AB. Beer poured a ruby red color with a almost no head, but a small white one that quickly dissipates. Aromas were fruity, tart blackberries. Flavor was pretty tasty, notes that were familiar to what you’d get in a wine, but not too wine-like. Very enjoyable

Bottle from hbmason...thanks Tim! - Pours ruby red with a thin off-white head. Smells really earthy and woody, with light plastic, a bit of sweetness and the dry twang of red wine. Taste is real malty and pretty lactic. Wine is present, with a hint of berries--I guess this is the blackberries. Finishes really carbonated with oak sharpness and a bit of balsamic vinegar. Not overly tart, pretty smooth actually. Drinkable but pretty forgettable.

Thanks Diego! File this one under "very very very solid sour ale". I didn’t get much blackberry in particular but some sweet ripe berries and a tart and tannic finish that comes down pretty comfortably. Good stuff.
