Pours a fizzy off tan head with a clear rich copper liquid (raspberry tinged). Smells bixuity malt. Toast with berry jam and some cigarette ash or playground gravel.

Tastes empty berry with noticable biscuit malt character. Flat weedy hop flavor on an empty dextrinous mouthfeel. Dry with a little bit of berry sour tang and seedy dry. Finish dries pretty sharply coordinated with a carbonation edge that stings the papillae. Left with a berry fiber, like the sweet sucked out of a mouthfull of berries.

Pours a straw, light amber hue with decent white head fading to a decent lace.

Really delicate nose with grains (oatmeal I assume) coming off immediately, with some nice blackberry and citrus notes. Mild yeast and malt character present.

The blackberry is very prevalent on the palate but not overwhelming. The berry works into the remaining flavors, lots of mild hops, mild yeast, and citrus all working together hand in hand. Really nice.

Texture is nice with a medium weight, nicely intense palate, good grip, lightly bitter, and well balanced.

A great, off the wall style of beer, and one that I really enjoyed. Doesn't have that artificial berry thing going on, just a nice hint of fresh blackberry to round out a solid core beer (reminds me of an oatmeal pale ale I once had, just with blackberry).
