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.

375mL bottle from Carwyn Cellars. Bottle 13/08/17 Beautiful colour to it - sort of a deep mauve(?)...kinda purpleish-red - white head dissipates. Aroma is funky from the get go - grapefruit, white wine vinegar, barnyard, get sort of rustic blackberry & dried fruit notes, kind of earthy spice, old wood, mature cheddar. Mouth-puckering sourness pretty much from the get go - not too aggressive (acetic), sort of lemon citric, natural yoghurt lactic, touch of unripe green apple too, long line continues well onto the finish with a touch of grippy tannin. Flavours of unripe berries, citrus rind, leafy herbs, oaken spice, with a odd floral almost rose petal character in there I've never come across. Pretty intense upfront, the fruit character isn't up in your face - there's plenty going on especially with that bracing sourness.

Erzengel (9899) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - FEB 7, 2018
Bottle from Beerdome.nl. Smooth sour nose. The beer starts nice sourish and fresh. Dry sour fresh blackberries. Tart and funky, wood with hints of white wine in the back. Lots of blackberries with a great funky sour ending. Deep and refreshing, but not too long in the aftertaste, quite mild, round and fruity sour fresh. Nice.

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2018 Bottle at home. Ive had this for a while now. So different to what I was expecting. Not too sour but lots of flavour from the blackberries. As you would expect has great colour of course this comes from the fruit. Another great beer from these guys.

rafax (488) - POLAND - NOV 25, 2017
Bottle. Beautiful, deep ruby color, just a bit hazy with small but solid light pink head, almost no lacing. Quite strong sour nose with some aromas of blackberry, wood, maybe a bit of vanilla and barnyard. Complex and changing while warming - more barnyard. Taste is sour, not very acidic and quite refreshing. Flavors of red wine and tannic feeling. Light to medium body and pretty smooth mouthfeel, very well balanced and a bit tart in the finish. Well done!

Braudog (6944) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - OCT 6, 2017
Bottle. Pours thin and with little body. It has a great color for a blackberry beer, and a pretty solid berry nose. But the blackberry doesn't hold up the tart, sourness of the baseline beer as well as the raspberry variant does. This comes across as a bit emptier, but still pleasant and enjoyable.

varanid99 (1419) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 23, 2017
Pinkish purple pour with a thin pale pink head. Big tart, sour blackberry, red fruit, earthy, funky, lemon aromas. Taste is sour blackberry, lemon, wheaty, earthy, more blackberry comes through as the tartness starts to fade. Like this one a lot.
