yum, nothing like a blackberry sour from texas to kill it. Moderate-heay berry flavor. Its odd, I donít know exactly the blackberry flavor and couldnt guess it blind. Its just "insert stereotypical berry flavor here". MOderate tartness, dry finish.

Bottle shared at Butlerís place with Chris and Craig, thanks to Chris. Pours pinkish red with a slight head. Aroma is lots of berries and lemons. Flavor follows with nice tartness, somewhat sweet. Lots of berries. Really nice beer.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a hazy dark ruby color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy sour, berry and wood aroma. Medium to full body with a tingly texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer for style.

Bottle @ RBSG 2015. Thanks DJ! Deep purple colored beer with some pinkish foam. Juicy boysenberry and blackberry nose on this. Jammy fruits, lemon zest, and some oak. A touch of vanilla sweetness along with a touch of sweet fruity jam. Nice sourness of berry, lemon, and green apple. Drying oak and fruit skin finish. Solid!

Cask at Jester King. 8 oz. Pour, really pretty pour. Full pink head that coated the snifter all the way down. Aroma is BlackBerry right up front and turns into Sour oak barrel, and light Funk. The flavor is much like the aroma with the addition of a light BlackBerry jam character. The finish still has a good, sharp pucker after the sip. My taste buds only hurt slightly. The mild jam is over-taken by the tartness. I got to say, damn, fine Brewing. Really happy the line didnít take long to get through, thatís gets an extra point!!

Bottle. Deep purple-red color with a small pink head. Huge amazing blackberry around with some Oak. The flavor is equally awesome and fruit with good tartness. Medium body with an acidic bite and good drinkability. Great beer!

Bottle at RBSG. Thanks! A: Purple color, off-white head. N: Blackberry, cherry, grape, leather, grapefruit. T: Tart, lightly sweet. M: Light body, prickly carbonation. O: Enjoyable blackberry sour. I wish it had a bit more complexity, but blackberry sours tend to be tricky.
