A- Looks like a dark Oud Bruin. So I guess a sh*tload of blackberries are in this, and you can see it. Very dark; and it is purple when you hold it up to the light. Very dark purple. Minimal lacing.

S- Great sour smell. That sour smell that makes your nose hair pucker. Definitely presence of blackberries. Some yeasty funk, but more sour blackberry.

T- Very sour blackberry. I would love to have that bottle along side this one. That is what I get.

M- Smooth, just the right amount of carb, maybe on the low side. Very well done.

O- This comes off as an Oud Bruin with lots of sour blackberries. Had this side-by-side with VSB a month after review of this beer with another beer buddy, and we both like AC Golden Framboise Noir over New Glarus Very Sour Blackberry

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Batch 1. Brewed 9/20/11. Bottled 10/18/12.

Pours a murky super dark reddish-brown with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is sour with malt, grain, funk, berry, wood, and earth aromas. Taste is much the same with super sour fruit, funk, and wood flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a great smell, but the taste doesn't match up in my opinion.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a bottle dated 10/18/2012 courtesy of Cestlavie into a Prairie Teku glass. Split with Abbbp.

Appearance: Dark reddish brown, with a beige head that disappears quickly and leaves no lacing or crown.

Smell: Lots of blackberry, dark vinegar, with some prominent oak barrel notes and a vinous quality coming though as well.

Taste: Mouth-puckering sour that hits you square in the jaw. Acetic, but not undrinkably so. Berry is a little weaker here than on the nose, but not too bad.

Mouthfeel: Dry, nicely carbed but not too much. A good balance here. The beer really makes me salivate, too. This might be one of the most sour beers I've ever had.

Overall: Really, really sour. Very good, but it's a sipper for sure. I wish the blackberry were stronger in the taste.
