From bottle. Pours a thick purple with a white head. Smell is sweet blackberry with some seedy, stemmy notes too. Taste is super tart blackberry overrall with a creamy mouthfeel and medium carbonation level. One of the best fruit beers and New Glarus beers I’ve had the pleasure of trying!

Bottle at the radikal whale slaying. Thnx to Anton ! Pours dark, unclear red/purple. Smell is intense, very intense, juicy berries. Mild sournote. very full! Taste is intensely sour, but with a very decent complexity underneat. Fruits are full-on intense, very juicy berries, mild sweet notes . Not sure how many kg’s of berries went in here, but i’m sure there were A LOT . Decent mf and low ( perfect) carbo. Starts of dry ( perhaps a bit too dry for me) but as soon as the berries kick in, the dryness is countered by the full fruityness. Extremely good fruitsour indeed !

500 mL bottle . Originally reviewed 1/27/2014. Dark hazy reddish purple. Nice pink head. Pretty. Nose has tons of blackberry. Acidic. A little bit of funky yeast to it. Some oak. Tastes bright and grainy right up front. Sweet blackberry. Immediately sour. Tart and funky. Oak. Some lemony flavors. Strong sourness. Grainy. Medium body. Excellent. The fruit flavor that New Glarus is famous for but it has the complexity of a great sour beer.

Bottle @ The Levi Tasting. Thanks, Guerde! Deep purple pour with a sma offwhite head. Nose is super jammy. Loads of blackberry and raspberry meat. A bit of balsamic sharpness. Flavor is similar. Fruity with an appropriate amount of acid to keep it clean. Lightly salty, briny. Funky fruit skin. Light body, moderate carb. A great American fruit sour.
