Draft at Stone Sour Fest 11. Dark berry colored pour, foamy whitish head. Light sweetness, blackberry, fruity, generic berry, and tart sourness. A really nice refreshing sour, I would love to drink this again.

Live from the barrel at the Portland location - Sweet, crisp and fruity in a complex and deep way. Good thick and milky sourness.

Taster at the brewery. Pours clear, dark rose, no head. Very aromatic nose. Palate is full of tart blackberry. Medium body. Leaves a sour taste on the finish as well, which isn’t shocking. I need more practice with these sour ales.

Draft at Uber in Seattle. Very pretty cranberry pour with minuscule filmy head. Big sweet fruity nose. The sour wafting off is very juicy, with just a touch of the funk. Light ale at first before a wave of heavy cider and juice. Beautifully tart, roundly red fruit. More raspberry to me than tart ripe blackberry. Very good

Live rate at the Racoon Lodge!!! Dark raspberry pour with a small white ring of a head that surprisingly left more than a spot or two of lacing. Aroma is lemonpeel, blackberries, dark fruit, and caramel undertones. Very drinkable. A bit of tart, a hint our sour, subtle funk, and lots of berries. Ample carbonation. Yum!!!

BlackForestCO (978) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - MAY 2, 2010
On tap. Poured a clear berry-red color with a thin pink head that quickly disappeared. Aroma of sweet blueberry pie filling, a light bretty funk, and some faint acidity. Crisp, lightly sweet entry leads into a moderate tartness paired with some berry sweetness before leading into a lightly dry, softly bitter hoppiness offset by a tart brett yeastiness that imparts a light lemon flavor on the finish. Fine carbonation and lightly bubbly, crisp mouth feel. Overall, it was a rich, fruity beer that was reminiscent of New Glarus’ fruit beers, but like those, it was a tad one dimensional.

bb (9657) - Alamo, California, USA - APR 12, 2010
Draft. Ruby red beer with a pinkish head. Red fruit aroma with tartness and some earthiness. Great tart berry flavor with oak and acetic notes. Medium bodied. Sour/tartness lingers with berry, oak, and earthiness.

Poured into a tulip glass. Clear pink, with a big fizzy head, it almost looks like a sparkling rose. It smells of berries, fruits and funk. This beer has a lot of fruit flavor, but a lot more tartness, this is perhaps the driest tasting berry beer I have ever had. My only Issue is the deeper I get into the glass the more I get an off brett flavor of plastic and bandaids. The beer is very fizzy almost like a champagne and it goes down well
