Brownish, tea-colored amber with a short-lived head in the tulip. Some swirls of foam carry on to the end, but the mouthfeel is not very spritzy. This immediately reminds me of a Berlinerweiss but less acidic. Brewer says this is made with "barley, corn, and rye using a soured mash."

Aroma is very sharp but not quite vinegar. Thin body but a little malt flavor. This is really woody and tart. I am struggling to describe this but it's a weak grainy taste with some very dry old apples. I can't say this is a hugely enjoyable experience but it's so much less offensive than a lot of Wild Ales.

From the 22 oz bottle purchased far north of Temecula in Bellingham, Wash. I was surprised this year to see Black Market beers all over the Puget Sound region.

Pours a clear copper with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is slightly sour with malt, grain, toast, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with sour malt, toast, and roast flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty, refreshing, and easy to drink.

Serving type: bottle.
