Opened after Mexi Cake and domed by myself. Poured into a wine glass.

500 mL Batch 2

A - Shades of dark purple with mixed hints of redness that blend with the purp. Decent sized head on this that was mostly white + purple foam mixed together. Head recedes back into the glass at a good clip.

S - Smell is blackberries mixed with a little jammy nose. You can definitely smell the tart on the first pour and as it warms that smell dissipates and allows the more of the smells to come through

T - Taste follows the nose with a decent upfront tart sourness followed by the smooth sweet tastes of blackberries. My only complaint would be is to sour this up more! Really an easy drinker and finished this bottle in no time.

M - Mouthfeel is a little thicker which I like for these sours. The tart isn't over bearing what so ever. It makes this beer crushable.

O - Overall, Definitely enjoy AR and MvB better, but this was refreshing and definitely enjoyed every drop
