Slightly dull, rusty reddish pour with no visible carbonation, head retention, or sediment. There are blackberries in the nose, but it's much more of the tannic skin than the sweet juice. In a way this reminds me of royal tannin bomb from pizza boy, but more funky. The taste is subtle tart blackberries with a hint of wood and grain to follow. This has an incredibly approachable mouthfeel - blackberry forward with appropriately dryness, modest funk, and a light, effervescent body. There's surprisingly ample carbonation, though you'd think it would be totally flat based on appearance. This is another crushable fruit sour from almanac, highly recommended if you've enjoyed the others.

Loved it. exceptionally tart, nice berry flavor that meshes well with the barrel. Couldn't ask for more.
