This pours a hazy golden tan with thin foam. The aroma is a funky wet stray hay sour tart with a muted fruitiness to it. I can't pick out the blackberry per se, but I get the bitter kick from it. A funky sour, good to start with.

Very sour, taste is similar to Nocturn from Jester King. Good stuff.

Appearance: Pours a brilliant orange with hints of pink; the head fizzes away quickly though it leaves some dots while it lasts

Smell: Lactic fruit sour tones; perhaps a smear of blackberry jam on wheat toast if you let your power of suggestion get the best of you; funky tones, too

Taste: The lactic sour fruit tones arrive first, with the fruit evolving into blackberry in the mid-palate; acetic, funky, vinous elements develop, after the swallow; toasted wheat bread is underneath, though very subtle

Mouthfeel: Medium body with low carbonation

Overall: Not a top flight sour but does the trick; I especially enjoy the blackberry tones

Thanks, CaliSooner, for the opportunity
