3.74/5  rDev -12.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

500 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep purple and reddish brown. Small white head. Nice collar.

Smell - Blackberry and an intense acidity. Musty berries.

Taste - Really intense sourness. Blackberry. Slight pale malt. And then more sourness. Lemony. Some musty grain in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Overly sour. Medium carbonation and medium body.

Overall - It's too sour for me. Most of the other flavors are masked, but what I do taste is good.

Serving type: bottle
