COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We love blackberries. Tart, sweet and complex but guarded by thorny branches, these alluring fruit have been a favorite of ours since we added them to our very first beer. This sour blonde ale is infused with loads of coastal Blackberries from Swanton Berry Farm in California’s Santa Cruz Mountains and aged in wine barrels for many months. Pair with duck dishes and summer salads.

Tognetta (849) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - MAR 14, 2017
Avermelhada de leve turbidez, espuma rosada de pouca formação e pouca persistência. Aroma tende a amora e cereja escura. Paladar de média acidez e leve amargor e dulçor. Corpo leve e média/alta carbonataçao. Final trás um leve amargor que as vezes parece vindo da casca ds fruta e as vezes um pouco de lúpulo.

beer-yum (1539) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 3, 2017
Restrained tart berry aroma in a crimson pour. Lovely balance between the sour base and the berry addition makes this the best of the three I had in a session (nectarine and raspberry being the others).

luttonm (5567) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 19, 2017
GG, Seattle. Rich, pretty cranberry red juice body, almost no head. Deep fruity tart nose, cran and blackberry. Bright fruit tartness. Astoundingly fresh berry flavors, in a distilled richness I didn’t expect. A bit cloying sweet at the back of the tongue, but fantastic flavor. Bright, balanced, pungent. Lightest cream to the palate. Fantastic.
