look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

looks awesome, better than the rest of it really, deep deep blood red with a high degree of clarity and a peculiar stillness to it that in this instance seems inviting rather than disappointing. the nose is cool, fruit first for sure, but definitely packs a pucker. the blackberry is robust in the taste too, which is hard to do, but it seems more like juice than beer, lacking any real grain or hop character at all. the stillness gets weird in the feel, its woefully under carbonated and with such a dense body, it just sort of feels heavy and lingers too long. if it was charged up better it would be twice the beer i think. wishing for more for sure. i like the flavor though, and the sourness is right there in the finish to clean up the fruity sugars, but its missing something for me, and is leagues below something like atrial rubicite for quality fruit sour, but is still worth trying.
