Had this beer on-tap at City Beer Store in a tulip glass.
S-right away I got fruit, cherries and berries up front, then slight vinegar and leather.
T-I really liked the fruit in this, which did interesting things with the base beer. I would call this beer an Old Bruin with Cherries and Blackberries. More sour than sweet, but the natural fructose comes through in a non-cloying way.
M-Nice carbonation, which helped this go down.
This was a beer to savor, it is complex and well-rounded, and made me want more. I agree that I should have brought my girlfriend to buy more beer.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured into an over-sized wine glass. Dark brown with a raspberry tint. Evocative notes of blackberries comes forward immediately. Allowing the smell to linger a bit, you'll find a touch of the barrel underneath the berry bomb. Very pretty in appearance and smell.
Slightly acidic with a balsamic note. Sour and funky, but fruity and complex. Lots of berry notes (including the clearly advertised blackberry and cherry). As it warms and opens up in the glass a bit, I do catch more malt notes, including caramel and toffee. Mouthfeel is pretty light and head retention is good. Carbonation is spot on for the intensity of flavor and helps the palate process the sour and fruit notes.
Makes my mouth water. All in all, a very nice sour. And damn, I am craving a nice beef or lamb stew to demolish with this.
