BEER REVIEW #600!!

Reviewing Snozzberry, a mysteriously fruited wild ale from Block 15 out of Corvallis, Oregon.

Score: 94

April 2014 vintage bottle served in a footed De Garde tulip and enjoyed on 06/04/14.

Appearance: Pours a murky, slightly pinkish peach color with minimal head that totally settles off the pour. No lacing or retention. 3/5

Smell: Raspberry, hay, strawberry, mango, berry, oak and musty peach/nectarine. Really interesting mix of fruitiness with a young funk character that is very bright and slightly sweet. Super complex and funky fruit roll-up-esque. 4.75/5

Taste: Strawberry upfront and in the finish with a nice raspberry flavor in the middle. Some lingering plastic-like flavor in the finish. Super fruity. 4.25/5

Mouthfeel: Very juicy mouthfeel with a dry finish. Good tartness throughout. Light bodied, appropriate carbonation. Nice mix of sweet and sour fruit characteristics here. 4.5/5

Overall: A really tasty fruit-blast of a sour ale that would be legitimately excellent but for the plastic character in the finish.

Cost: $9.50 for a 375 ml bottle.

Poured from a bottle for our Snozzberry tasting, provided by Abbbp.

Appearance: A small fizzy head that dissipates quickly. Beer itself is hazy, somewhere between crimson, pink and orange. Perhaps a few hints of purple. Very interesting color here.

Smell: Lots of berries. Sour, funky raspberry. Maybe some blackberry. I was expecting a lot more fruit variety in here, based on the description. Still very nice though.

Taste: Berries, but not hit over the head with them by any means. Somewhat sour, in a Berliner type way. Hints of plastic, and cracker malts. Something vaguely salty going on here too. Very nice.

Mouthfeel: Prickly carbonation, somewhat dry. Very nice, it works well with the style.

Overall: Very nice. Nothing extraordinary, but a solid fruited sour nonetheless.
