3.75/5 rDev -10.3%
375ml bottle at fridge temp poured into a pair of pilsner glasses. Left to warm for ~15 before sampling. Bottled April 2014.
Pours quite hazy with a few odd floaters drifting around. Amber, with a small white head that fades slowly into a creamy sheet. Smell is tart and fruity, smells nice.
Taste is very tart, very slight unripe berry flavor, almost makes me think of rhubarb. Very tart.
Mouthfeel is very dry, almost chalky. Overall, pretty good.

4.03/5 rDev -3.6%
April 2014 bottling.
A: Pours a clear orange with a good sized and very fizzy white head. Soda-like head dissipates very quickly. Decent little chunks of lacing for a sour. Halfway decent head retention despite the initial fizziness to o.
S: Distinct blackberry aroma (of course). Lightly tart.
T: Blackberries, sweet for a second and then BOOM, huge sourness. Bracing tartness catches me off-guard. After a few sips I'm accustomed to it a bit. Nice tart blackberries from start to finish. Light sour apples in the middle and a slightly dry lingering aftertaste. No real funkiness to it, just straight up acidic sourness.
M: Medium bodied, clean and mouth-puckering sourness.
O: Another nice sour from Almanac. Crisp and clean, very little to no funk. Pure fruits and tart ones at that. Drinkability is surprisingly high despite the sourness. It's got just enough punch to give it that crisp refreshing hit without making it over the top. Tasty.
