750 ml bottle. Bright pinkish purple color. Clouded through. Puffy but fizzy pink head. Big berry flavor, recognizably marionberry. It smells like berry juice with a touch of lacto, neutral oak and light funk, a touch poopy. Tart but not painfully so. Light body with some slickness. Oak is pretty mild but comes around in the finish. Fair bit of acidity, a little too much for my taste. Still, the fruit flavor is great. Sarlacc83 (2301) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 30, 2016
Bottle shared by Douglas. Thanks! douglas88 (9687) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 28, 2016
A: Purple in color with a pink head.
N: Marionberry, grapefruit, lemon zest, bandaid, cracker, and sweet-tarts.
T: Tart...and that’s about it.
M: Light body, sharp carbonation, no alcohol.
O: Decent, I guess. It’s pretty much the same as everything else they’ve made, unfortunately.
Bomber from the brewery. Pours a bright purple color with a medium white head. A big bursting berry nose, some oak. Vinous, sharp sour and super sweet berries, oak, tannins. Very sour at times, but the overall flavor is super cleat naturally sweet berries. Awesome. GT (10017) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 9, 2016
750mL bottle at a tasting. Low haze strawberry color with light pink foam. Super funky nose with green plant/aloe juice, juicy berries, blackberry cobbler. Really opens up nicely. Taste is high carbonation in front palate, high prickly acid bite, salty. But too sour for me with a hot, slightly acetic backend. Too biting and aggressive to really sit back and enjoy.

750 ml bottle to snifter (thanks Ferris). Looks good; a cloudy dark raspberry with ample fluffy off-white head that las a light pink hue to it. Smells good too; a nice balance of funk, blackberry, and oak. Tastes like it smells with a pleasantly tart and lactic medium-bodied mouthfeel. The blackberry presence is awesome on the tongue and bounces wonderfully off the well-balanced acidity. Delicious! jcartamdg (3539) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2016
Pours a deep reddish purple with a thin pink head. Aroma of berries, oak and vinous notes. Taste is sour, acidic, with berries and oak. Not bad but very sour, hard to drink a lot. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - MAR 21, 2016
750, capped. Pours a dark, dark purple burgundy with a loose fizzy head that fades. Balanced fruity/berry notes on the nose. Creamy medium body, lively carb, seems a little pulpy but that doesn’t really come through until the dregs (which ya might as well drink, ya dog). Beautifully suspended berry flavor, hovering right between tart and sweet, right between dry and acidic, holding a perfect balance. Long coating berry juice finish. Elegantly modulated fruit character. JBPortland (1564) - Hampton Roads, Virginia, USA - FEB 1, 2016
750ml bottle pours dark red violet with a finger of pink foam. Nose is huge bursting berry jam, light vinegar note, Smuckers jar, light barny funk. Taste is medium high acidity, lots of sweet juicy berry jam, blue raspberry candy and grape gushers, Dannon blueberry yogurt. Finishes sour with a slight balsamic note which dissapates as it warms, very sweet, light funk, huge fruit, basically jam. MrChopin (4305) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 28, 2015

hazy plum-cherry body, large bubbled cream head fizzles out fast. Yogurt heavy nose, sweetness draws out green acid and arsenic comparisons. Biting acid front palate, pithy Betty sourness. Body so full and carbonated that mid palate becomes difficult to swallow, extreme carbonic acid metallicity / bitterness. Sourness lasts through fruit skin finish, plenty of high acid berry and candy sweetness coating the end palate.
