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 Californiaís Santa Cruz Mountains and aged in wine barrels for many months. Pair with duck dishes and summer salads.

A tart smelling acidic aroma. An appearance that is a bit murky and rose colored. A sour to be sure but, very well balanced and beautify smooth palate make it an intense but pleasurable experience. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

luttonm (5448) - 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 didnít expect. A bit cloying sweet at the back of the tongue, but fantastic flavor. Bright, balanced, pungent. Lightest cream to the palate. Fantastic.

tom10101 (5760) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 9, 2017
Bottle (375 ml), split 2-ways. Iím not sure about the age of the bottle but I think itís 1+ year old. Clear golden with purple hues and a small white head, not much retention or lacing. Aroma is of berries with funk, oak and lactic acid. Taste is intensely sour with moderate berries presence, oak spiciness and light buttery oak. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Oak / vinous mouthfeel. Puckering finish. This is done the american way. Thereís a beautiful funk and fun fruit presence but itís so intensely sour that itís not enjoyable at all.
