COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In the spring of 2006, I brewed 300 gallons of top-fermented beer using wild yeast to create a Belgian-style Lambic. We conditioned the beer in oak casks and then initiated a secondary fermentation in the casks using whole fruit from Huber’s Orchard in Starlight, Indiana. You should experience a tart, almost sour taste balanced by the aromatic and richly flavorful addition of whole blackberries - perfect to share with friends, and a platter of good cheese and fresh fruit. - Caleb Staton, Head Brewer

chinchill (2050) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 13, 2014
Upland blackberry from a bomber (thanks BShine) at the 2014 RBWG in Asheville. Sour funky blueberry/blackberry. Vinegar (which I can’t abide) but mostly gone in the taste. Too wild and unbalanced.

Leighton (11593) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2014
Bottle at RBWG Asheville Grand Tasting. Pours hazy pink with a white cream head. Tart, jammy berry aroma, some definite acetic kick. Quite sour flavor with moderate sweetness, blistering tart berries, high acidity. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Lip-pucker sour finish, loads of jammy blackberry. Ballsy.
