Bottle: Batch 2. Thanks, Chris. Didnít know this was a separate listing from Batch 1, I would have taken more comprehensive notes. However this batch is much less sour & acetic, focusing a little more on the damp cheesecloth funk notes, more woody, & a more tannic finish. Still a really nice beer, but I prefer Batch 1. I think RU-55 makes a better base for a blackberry sour (even though I prefer ‹berkind to RU-55 on its own) as itís a little more acidic, tart, & rich.

Bottle courtesy of noodleuser, thanks! Beautiful hazy ruby purple color, off pink head. Nice aroma of berries and cherries. Taste is softly sour berries, reminds me of Rose de Gambrinus.

The beer is ruby hued with a small, bubbly pink cap. The aroma is cherries, musty basement, funk. Cherries, raspberries, mild acetic character. Soft carbonation and a delicate finish. This and Atrial Rubicite seem inspired by Cantillon, which is certainly a good thing. A cherry showcase and a fine example of an American wild ale.
