Purchased during a business trip to SF and take home to NC to sample with my wife.

Copper and hazy with a small head of large bubbles that dissipate quickly. Nice blackberry aroma. Excellent balance between the sour, tartness and the fruit. A light pucker response with a tingling of tiny bubbles escaping as they hit your tongue.

A mature American fruit sour with nice depth and balance.

Serving type: bottle

Bottled April 2014.

Deep, bright copper color, with a ring of froth leaving some lace. Looks very good in the glass.

Natural, restrained blackberry aroma, along with some attractive earthiness and dried leaves, and a bit of acetic tang. Quite nice.

On the palate, fairly sour and vinegary. Bright, tangy blackberry vinegar, and some underlying old barrel and earthiness. Not as pretty and delicate as the aroma, but well composed, refreshing, and quite tasty.

Smooth, cushy texture thanks to very tiny bubbles. Plenty of acidic tingle.

Nice beer.
