Big blackberry juice aroma. Nice deep red cranberry juice appearance with slightly red tinted white ring of head. Very light refreshing sour base with the tartness of fresh blackberries on top of it. Crisp body that leaves a tart stain behind. Em (102) - USA - MAY 22, 2010
Raspberry and cranberry flavors mixed in with the blackberry flavors. Drank on tap at the brewery. Red pink in color, very fizzy. An excellent beer. bhightow (24) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 2, 2010

Sampled during the First Annual Stone Sour Fest. Another favorite of the day. Clear coppery purple color with a really nice head. The citrusy aromas were berry berry fruity. More berry on the flavor. Not as sour as the name would have you believe. Nice hop finish with blackberry infused. I really like it. gorditoabd (636) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 7, 2011
Growler from the Home Brew Mart. Pours a beautiful raspberry hue, almost like liquid ruby joy. No foam but lots of bubbles racing up the side of the glass. Aroma is all dark musky berries, rasp, black, cran... it’s like they’re all in here, along with a pleasantly musty, just the edge of sour, scent. Super sour initial taste, like cranberry juice with tart apple infusion, sweet kiwi mixture, and a blast of blackberries at the end. Whew! Worth the trip and the wait. Great, great stuff. Unlike a lot of sours, one I could keep on drinking. The only knock on it is that the finish seems a little muddled... Not really, just not what it could be. Still, top, top-notch stuff.

4 oz pour on draft at ChurchKey. Dark ruby brown with beige head. Aromas of raspberries and berries. Tastes of berry jam, tart raspberries, tart acidic notes. Medium-light body with a dry finish. Very tasty. Mep3222 (1617) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Fruity aroma with some lactic sour. Taste is on the light side but full flavored. Bit of a barnyard funk in the finish, but may be some of the fermented berry flavors. Tart finish. Not sweet, fruit sugars seem to be mostly fermented out. Different for sure but a great Berliner like beer with fruit.

Tap. Dark pink-red with a small pink head. Raspberry aroma, distinct citric tartness. Heavy raspberry flavor, mouth watering tartness. Subdued tartness fleshes out the fruit flavor. Residual fruit and pucker in the finish. Mouthfeel is light, rather dry. beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - AUG 10, 2008
Tasted on tap at O’Briens. This fruit beer pours a medium purple color from the tap. Small sized white foamy head. The aroma is blackberry, malt and some funk. A medium bodied fruit beer. The malts are caramel and fruity. The hops are earthy. Nice blackberry flavors, very clean and semi-sweet. There is a touch of funk and tartness but not that much. Nice balance. Good carbonation. It’s very good as a fruit beer, not so much as a sour beer. The funk is there, but very subdued. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter with a slight touch of sourness. Getbetter (1033) - East Palo Alto, California, USA - MAY 8, 2010
