COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

dark gold with moderate white head. mild sourness and fruity/floral nose. moderate to low carbonation for the style. very little initial bitterness before some floral hops and fruity esters come into play, some brett-tartness, but nothing overwhelming at all. if told of the blackberries i can discern some presence, but overwise I would just consider it part of the hops flavor. not sour enough and not enough depth to the flavor. somewhat disappointing

Sample from ridgewood. Sour but nowhere near pucker power. Bare minimal blackberry comes through. Leaves the palate dry for a long time. Like it a bit better than the peach Halia ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer had a very tasty blueberry flavor along with the tartness of a sour. Flavor was still bright and well balanced. Nice clear color, good carbonation, and a tasty sweet finish.

22oz 2009 bottle (bottled Jan 09) from NobleSquirrel. Pours a very clear bright orangish ruby golden with thin white head that reminds me of Alka Seltzer, but disappears much quicker. Nose is a winey, fruity, light acetic mix with some woody tones laying under it all. Lightly tanic and you can definitely pick up the blackberries and some apple, especially as it come fully up to room temp. It also looses some of the tartness on the nose as it warms as well. Light vinegar and thin fruitiness, with some dry peppery wood bitterness on the end. Really kind of watery, lacks depth and doesn’t live up to the promise that the nose offers.

Bottle courtesy of decoman from TBS. Bottled 8/14/09. Pours a cloudy, essentially opaque reddish-brown. Very red, almost pink. Very bubbly, tons of tiny bubbles in the head. Taste is very fruity...raspberry, cherry. Not as sour as I was expecting - a very drinkable sour. Girlfriend liked it too.

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2012
Bomber from 2012, bottled 1.26.12. Pours dark orange and lively, dark pink and orange in the glass, with a small and short-lived beige head. Aromas of sour cherry, blackberry, and raspberry. Tons of fresh fruit and tart seeds, wet hay, and some ripe cheese. The flavor is sweet and tart raspberry and blackberry; tart seeds and berry funk build gradually to a tart finish. The finish has bright, unripe berries, cheese, and mild barnyard funk, with perhaps a splash of Pinot Noir. Medium carbonation and body, savory and mouthwatering, quenching, and bone dry. Solid, and very tasty. I hate cellular immunity. [1089]

Loved it...tart super funky and drinkable, this is a well produced sour. It puckers you slightly but there’s very good flavors from the barrel and the fruit. You get some of the berry as well as dryness from the oak now and I’m excited to see how this one ages.
