COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belgian Abbey-style dubbel ale aged in a wine barrel that formerly contained lambic. This gives the beer a distinct sourness and the addition of fruit gives the beer a purple color and a dry acidic finish.

on tap at the Wilmington location. Body was pinkish burgundy and rose colored at the edges. Head was tall thick foamy and pinkish. Aroma was bad breath, wet matches, and fermented blackberries. Flavor was tart blackberries, a little sour & astringent, and a bit of tea like the NG Raspberry Tart. Faint malt/fruit sweetness in the background. Bummed I missed the blackberry saison but this was a great consolation prize since it’s more like a sour than a dubbel.

Draft at the Wilmington location. The pour was purple in color with a very thin pink-burgundy colored head, hard to get color in the dark Wilmington location. In any event, the aroma ws rich strong sour blackberries and that was pretty much it, a touch of cherries. The flavor was all blackberries with some cherries too. Sour and acidic, light caramel under it all. Unfortunately, there wasn’t enough caramel and/or chocolate type depth of the base beer. Tanins, faint oak, sour bite. Pretty good, but it loses points for not displaying enough of the base style and the malts. Really came off as a blackberry Flemish sour. But, it was quite refreshing for a summer night after volleyball. Good, just not really dubbel-ish. Body was light too for a dubbel. I wonder if Brian is out of blackberries now?
