Guessing this is what batch I get. Anyway a great sour beer, though dryer than I would like. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Huhzubendah (2522) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 21, 2014
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.

nimbleprop (4869) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 18, 2014
375ml bottle pours a murky, bright purple with a ring of pink head. Nose has juicy berry, a little inky, mild dried fruit. Flavor has more complexity and depth, inky berry, juicy, some date, some mild tartness, a little orange juice. Finishes a little oily.

Brilliant purple reddish in color... Aroma of berry cobbler, can literally perfume my house with it... Flavor is light earthy tart wheat, lots of berry, vanilla notes... Finishes very dry... Light tartness, effervescent mouthfeel... Great beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cranberry aroma, cheesy funk underneath. Cloudy red, thin pink head. Tart! Cranberry and unripe cherries. Powerfully tart, but good flavor.
