COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bramble Barrel is an American sour ale inspired by the Gin Bramble cocktail. This beer was brewed with a pound and a half per gallon of local blackberries and aged in NC made Cardinal Gin barrels, which contribute the essence of spearmint. Finished with fresh lemon zest, this sour is best served unshaken and unstirred. Cheers.

martin00sr (4796) - Haderslev, DENMARK - APR 14, 2018
Bottle @Ulfborg Tasting. Clear dark red amber, airy offwhite head. Arima has dark berries, some sourish notes too. Dark berry flavour, sour with light funky notes. Seems a little rough, carbonation is lively and does not really help with the roughness.

Skład zapowiada ufo, a dostajemy grzecznego dzika z czerwonymi owocami. Aromat niedomaga. Dzikość, jagody, nieco kurzu, pestki. W smaku fajnie, wytrawnie, z wyrazistą kwaśnością, czerwonymi owocami (niby jeżyny ale jakby koś powiedział mi, że to wiśnie to bym uwierzył) i lekko pestkowym finiszem. Nie czuję wpływu cytryn, ani beczki po ginie. Generalnie jest bardzo dobrze.

Bottle, december 3rd 2016. Dark red body with a tiny offwhite head. Aroma of blackberries, herbs, strawberries, vanilla. Taste is sour with mild oak notes, lots of berries, piny hops, slightly astringent. Wooden alchoholic finish with a lasting fresh sour aftertaste. Very nice!

BlackHaddock (8217) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2017
Cotteridge tasting #3 on 20th May 2017. Cheers Dave (WingmanWillis) for this offering. By the time the bottle got to me it had been poured into a few glasses already and my glass held a hazy reddy/bronze liquid with no head. Hedgerow berries in the aroma, taste also had red berries and a light citrus leaning, no spearmint or gin flavours for me. Liked it though.
