Split amongst family to celebrate the birth of my sister's first child. Nice blackberry notes but, like previous Uplandic experiences, the vinegar and sour serve to minimize rather than compliment the fruit.

The color is dark red with smoothie type look, low..practically no head after settling. The smell is strong with fruity ester and light berry aroma with wild yeast ester giving a sour lemon-type scent with funky and fruity mix. The feel is tangy with medium sour level with light citrus and juicy berry with medium amont of carbonation w/ semi-dry and slightly juicy funky finish.

The taste of this wild ale is acidic at first with juicy and tangy fruit flavor of the berry with a mild spice-like flavor and woody almost balsamic taste of acidity and woody tannin with a very dry yeast flavor in the finish. Overall I think this is a wonderful american wild ale with blackberry...not extremely sour and very drinkable with a lot of fruit flavor.
