look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Bottle poured into an Upland tulip glass.

A: Color on the is pretty unique, copper with a strong purple blend. Pours with almost a finger of white head the reduces quickly and leaves little lacing.
S: I get the blackberries and funk on the front, with a lingering wine aroma.
T: The blackberries have a strong presence, as does the wine barrel. This isn't exactly a fruity sour, but the fruit is there. I get the dates, and while I appreciate the balance they add, I wish they weren't there. They aren't off putting, I'm just not a date fan.
M: Carbed well, leaves a mildly dry finish which is most complimented by the wine.
O: I enjoyed this one quite a bit. It's unlike any other sour I've had, but simple enough to go down smooth.

A: Dark ruby color with medium-frothy head. Translucent.

S: Tart fruit is on the front of the nose. Notes of raspberries, boysenberries, red wine, cherries, and plums. A fruity wine component is noticeable.

T: The palate is much more subtle than the palate. Sharp notes of raspberries, dry grapes, wine-soaked oak, and blackberries. The oak is noticeable. Fairly tart.

M: Smooth, crisp, moderate body, moderate carbonation.

O: This is a great beer. A very fruit-forward sour with a great barrel effect. While it is very smooth and crisp, a certain aftertaste develops that makes it difficult to session. This is an up and coming sour, jump on the band wagon.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Bottle poured into a snifter. The brew appears a burnt copper color with an off-white cap that fades leaving patches of lace. The smell includes plenty of berry and a lactic note like yogurt and lemon but overall very clean smelling. The taste is tart of berries and a little woody. It is strikingly sharp and clean with a tannic dryness and cheesy funk. It is light bodied and modestly carbonated. Of the 10 or so bottled offerings I got to try from this brewery, this was one of the standouts.
