For the billionth time, thanks for sharing Sonny. Tampa 2015 weekend; full notes during consumption.

A- 500ml bottle poured to a snifter revealing a beer that resembles blackberry in color. A foamy cap rises and has good retention. Frothy ring donates a few sheets of lacing.

S- Berries run the show with hints a sourness and that signature tart blackberry note. Lactic acid comes to mind with a bit of lemons.

T- Blackberry flavor is dominant, fresh and authentic. Flavor of the juice, flesh and seeds of the berries. Actually not all that sour, more of a light tartness kind of like blackberries themselves. Vinous oak feel.

MF- Completely dried out light end body. The bubbles at a low to medium level for me. Finishes tart and a bit slick.

Blackberries probably just about as good as you can do them. Not all that sour or complex but still a great flavor profile.
