Per the bottle, "Unlike conventional ales and lagers which are fermented by carefully cultivated strains of brewers yeast, Ojos Negros is instead produced by exposing it to the wild yeasts and bacteria that are native to the Senne Valley, of Brussels Belgium. It is this unusual process involving over a year of fermentation, and over 130 pounds of Fresh Whole Blackberries which gives this beer its distinctive flavor: Semi sweet, vinous, fruity and cidery with a crisp tart aftertaste." According to one of the brewers, it is their Lambic (agen in oak wine barrels) with blackberries added.

Tap pour at local BA Tap Takeover - orange-gold pour with a moderate white head - aroma is funky, but sweet and full of berry notes - a bit of wine character is notable as well. Pretty solid, as the berry feels authentic on the nose. Flavor is puckery sour - this kicked a bit harder than expected (not in a bad way) - the blackberry flavor is quite strong and enjoyable - very vinous - just a roller coaster with this one, as it is quite sour, but not one-dimensional in any way. Palate seems appropriate - quite mild carbonation...solid!

Un liquide pche lallure trouble est surmont dune mousse qui sesquive trs rapidement pour disparatre compltement en un clin doeil. Les fruits explosent au nez et sont appuys par des effluves boiss bien prsents. Un peu de foin, propre au style, est galement ressenti. Lacidit est bien sentie en bouche, quoiquun lger sucre rsiduel vient lattnuer lgrement. Trs fruite et vineuse, un peu de bois, une bire trs satisfaisant dans laquelle je ne fondais pas de trs grands espoirs, mais force est dadmettre que cest dlicieux.

DandyWolfFloyd (1202) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2016
Aroma - spiced wheat, Boo Berry, lactobillus yeast, and dried white fleshed fruit. Appearance - the body is a Mikado yellow. The head is not large, around 1/4" and white. The head settles straight away. Taste - nice tart splash of blackberries. There is a bit of Boo Berry marshmallow dust like flavor. There is a big dose of lactobillus yeast sour. There is some spiced wheat also present. Palate - body is on the light side of medium, the texture is vinous, the carbonation average, the finish sour/tart and white flesh fruit dry.

750 mL bottle shared with Doug. The pour is a nice bright ruby orange color with a thicker bubbly white head and no lace. The aroma is pretty interesting. It's definitely not as sour as I was hoping. There is a lot of fruit and a heavy funk. There is a hint of wine and some nice big fruit notes. I can't really get over the funkiness. The flavor is good. There is a big fruitiness up and a nice wineyness to go with a funky barrel. It's not bad at all. The barrel is throwing me because it's both winey and fruity at the same time. The mouth feel is light and crisp with a decent carbonation and a lingering fruity sour finish. It's good, and definitely not what I was expecting.

oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2015
Pours a golden amber color with barely a head...kinda flat. Aromas are vinous, horseblanket, and maybe a touch of berry. Flavors of vinegar, light berry...sour and funky as hell.

Warm amber golden colour, white head. Light fruity aroma, butter, diacetyl, ethylacetate, nail polish remover, vinegar. Sour flavour, somewhat fruity. Sour finish, fruity, butter. Rather unbalanced sour, bit disappointing really.
