Draft to plastic cup. Looks solid; a semi-transparent dark brown with light beige head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes good too; on the maltier side for a sour with a nice balance of blackberry, oak, acidity, and vanilla from the barrel. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied and pleasant. Tasty.

Deep plummy brownish Amber with a thin spotty ivory cap. Lovely blackberry depth with oak and spicy whiskey in there with a currant sweetness. Big bright blackberry flavor that’s gently sour and gently whiskeyed, mild oak and booze, and more bright tartness. Really lovely and fun and blackberry-sweet.

There is light-moderate butterscotch in the middle. The finish has light vanilla. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation and a sticky mouthfeel.

Growler generously shared by JW. Reddish/brown pour with a kaki head. Sour vinous aromas. Tasty with loads of sour vinous and barrel notes. Muted malt, vinegar, oak, and blackberry backbeats. Good body and mouthfeel.

3.9
DesertDevil (699) - Arizona, USA - MAR 21, 2015
Draft at World of Beer – Tempe. Aroma of wet leather, tart blackberry, barnyard, and musty oak. Pours muddy reddish-brown with a thin, filmy head. Very tart taste before the sweet, sticky blackberry flavor takes hold, accompanied by mild Brett and floral notes. Nearly of the whiskey flavor is swallowed up by the tangy fruitiness. Medium body and a sweet fruity finish. A well-done, balanced fruited sour.
