Traded bottle via PUBíR. Pours hazy ruby with fizzy body and minimal head. Nose is tart blackberry, yeasty funk, lactic acid. Tastes tart, fruity, with authentic blackberry flavor, acidity, mild yeasty, earthy funk, and more tartness as it warms.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
My Bottom Line:
Fruit pith, lactobacillus and pediococcus converge on this softly carbonated Sour Ale, relying on high levels of acidity to build a memorable sipping experience.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam crowns the dark pink cloudiness.
-The intensity of the sourness lowers drinkability.
-I canít really tell if itís blueberry, blackberry, black currant, or any other type of berry in here. The bacterial character is too strong.
-This will still please lots of Lambic drinkers.

Bottle from Bine and Vine. Pours a hazy orange copper with a white head. Nose is big berry, some some skin, big funk, lactic, tart, and a big tongue-puckering sour. Flavor hits the same way with huge sour, berry skin, blueberry, some sweetness, and a nice vinegar character. Medium to full in body and delicious overall.

Bottle. Potent clean, lactic sour aroma with moderate blackberry and low white cranberry and white grape accents. Hazy light purple under no head. Sour blackberry and lemony lactic acid flavour that is clean and ends with a nice watery mouth feel. Light body, moderate carbonation, crisp and mouth puckering.

Tap into a snifter showing no filtration and tomato red with no head.
The nose shows a lot of tart cranberry and light blackberry notes.
The palate is moderately carbonated and light bodied. Flavors of very light blackberries but dry or a slight sweetness. Sweetness is harmonious and a moderate tartness throughout.
