Reviewed from notes from 7/14
A- Pours a gorgeous purple/ruby with a light pink head that slowly recedes to a collar, leaving some lacing. Some lively bubbles rush to the surface. Simply stunning!
S- Nice fresh black berries, some barnyard funk, oaky tannins, yeasty, and slightly soapy.
T- There is a lot of the base sour blonde beer evident right off the bat. Some fresh and some under-ripe black berries and wild berries come in through in the middle. Moderately tart, and very dry. Some of the soapy dishwater flavor noticed in the aroma comes through unfortunately, but it doesn't hurt it too much. Slight funk as well.
M- The mouth feel is light, slightly puckering, very dry, acidic, and well carbonated. Just about spot on for the style.
O- A very nice fruited sour that quenches thirst and makes you want to take another sip. Some slight flaws that can be fixed, but still very good.
