Beautiful pour of this ale. Exudes fruit, and based upon the color is mild in nose and flavor, which is perfect. Dont want a lambic. Enjoyable both from 40-60 degrees. Matches well with a medium strength cigar.

Bottle. Pours a deep purple ruby color with a pinkish hued head. Nice aroma of fruit in the nose, obviously blackberry but raspberry and lemon notes. Medium/light mouthfeel. Nice fruit forward note transitioning to a tart berry sourness. Very solid.

Lots of sweetness, zest, and sour zing in the front, sweet berry body, but doesnt last all that long.

Served in a Teku from bomber. Served the day bottle hit the shelves. Aroma brilliant aromatic qualities! Berry-like, fruity esters exude from surface of glass. Smells like a concoction of sour berries! Aroma stands out among other sours Ive encountered in my life and contributes remarkably to overall sensation. I have never given a beer a 10 for aroma. Appearance gorgeous, almost framboise-like appearance: frothy pink and purple head, which lingers for hours in glass and does not dissipate. Taste juicy, ripe, sweet blackberry sensation consistent throughout each sip. Extremely refreshing on all fronts. Oak barrel and base beer wheatiness tough to decipher through rich, ripeness of berries, which dominate overall experience. Addicting, sensational, reinvigorating lacto strain consistent throughout each sip. Lovely taste. Palate tart, semi-sour sensation in back of throat. I consider this brew more of a Wild Ale than a Sour, but brew still exhibits pure, one-of-a-kind lacto strain. So refreshing, so delicious. Wish I had more of these. Overall price point is fair for this brew. Not the best Blackberry Ale I have encountered, but damn impressive. Most romantic color Ive encountered in a beer. I am certainly satisfied.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear ruby with small pinkish head. The aroma is strong berry, funk, oak. Thin mouth with jammy blackberry, light funk, oak, tart finish, really enjoyed this one.

750 cc from WH PM. Magenta pour with fizzy pink head. Nose is earthy, tart blackberry. Tastes very tart, with fresh blackberry flavor. Complex and champagney mouthfeel. Outstanding.

Bottle. Murky brown pour with a purplish tint. Kaki head. Big blackberry aromas. Tart blackberry notes. Average body and mouthfeel. A bit pedestrian from Cascade.

750 ml bottle. Pours brown with some purple highlights and a medium sized beige head. The aroma was blackberry fruit goodness, lightly tart with some light woody notes. The flavor is much of the same; good blackberry fruit, mild tart, light acidity with a hint of wood. This drinks more like a fruit beer and less like a sour.
