750 mL bottle poured into a pint glass.

Appearance - Murky reddish brown. Not much of a head, if anything.

Smell - Smells pretty nice. Berries. Acetic acid. Red wine and oak.

Taste - Berry flavor is strong up front. Caramel malt. Sourness kicks in with some oak and red wine, but then it all drops off and leaves a cardboard staleness in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Low carbonation. Slick feel from the seemingly oxidized nature.

Overall - Promising aroma, but kinda feel apart.

Incredible beer. You can taste the fruit, but not overwhelming. They do no wrong at Rivertown

L: dark reddish brown
S: smells of soury sourness
T: mouth puckering sour with a bit of blackberry tart in the finish, they really mix well. The blackberry is not dominant or overpowering, just plays a supporting roll. A nice and dry finish.
F: bubbly and dry
O: damn good sour, surprised because I've had some rather bad ones from this brewery.

Appearance - The poured a copper color with a reddish tint. Bubbles clung to the sides of the glass, but quickly disappeared.

Smell - The smell most dominant was that of sour fruit with an overall sour profile.

Taste - My initial impression is that the beer is pleasantly sour. The blackberries present a nice tart taste with the oak adding a dry background. The dryness of the oak just makes you want to take another drink.

Mouthfeel - The carbonation is appropriate for the style, sweeping away the sweetness and leaving a dry aftertaste.

Overall - I did not have the highest expectations for this one, but enjoyed it a lot.
