Tastes nothing like beer but pretty easy to drink. Was hoping for more of the dark flavor to permeate.

Looks full and creamy, poured from can into glass as a brownish ale with a white low head with nice whitish/ purple lacing, initially.
Smells fresh and berrylike, okay, some malts.
Taste is berries, mostly blackberry/ some raspberries, vinous, with tartness.
Crisp, medium, nice sour aspect.
Pretty fun to sip.
