Received as an extra in a trade. Poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a nice crystal clear reddish tinged golden hue with a thin quarter inch head that fades to leave thin light wisps. Nice color!

S - Aromas of blackberry tartness, nice vinous notes, light sour blonde like aromas. Light, light wheat.

T - Taste is nice soft blackberries, grapes, light tartness. Solid mustiness, light oak and vanilla. The fruit is nice, like a fleeting taste of blackberry. Nice seedy aftertaste.

M - Mouthfeel is quite dry, not too lightly carbonated like some of the other Rivertown sour offerings I've had.

O - Overall this was a solid wild ale. Would prefer the blackberries being a bit more prominent, overall though this was a fine beer.

I found this to be a terrific beer... lots of sourness with just the right amount of blackberries to swing this over with a touch of sweetness...

Not overly sour or tart but there is definitely an ample amount so that there is no guessing about what they were trying to do here...

A very nice available beer that would be great on a sweltering summer night...
