Bottle @ The Levi Tasting. Thanks, Guerde! Deep purple pour with a sma offwhite head. Nose is super jammy. Loads of blackberry and raspberry meat. A bit of balsamic sharpness. Flavor is similar. Fruity with an appropriate amount of acid to keep it clean. Lightly salty, briny. Funky fruit skin. Light body, moderate carb. A great American fruit sour.
