Bottle shared by Dave tonight.

Pours fairly dark crimson brown, slightly purple, with a quarter inch head, and a not a whole lot of lacing. The color on this one is really amazing.

Smells very strongly of juicy blackberry, with some lactic sourness, oak, and leather. Smells quite tasty.

Tastes great. This is one of the more oaky sours I've ever had, delicious, leathery, with some slight vanilla, and some juicy, but quite sour blackberry flavors. I'm picking up other indistinguishable dark fruit flavors as well.

This one is medium bodied, with a full, and tart but juicy mouthfeel. There is a fairly low level of carbonation. It's quite drinkable.

One of the best sours I've ever had, it's cool that a beer this good could (sort of) come from Coors.

Batch 1, bottled 10/18/12.
Very tart, but smooth malt behind. Blackberry is ideal for this style, IMO.
Tart subsides as second pour warms, and the sour just sticks to your lips.
Don't know how much longer these should sit, hate to see it get funky.
