On tap at Stoneyard Beer Hall and Grill in Webster, NY.

This one pours dark-ish purple/blue hybrid, with a small head, and no lacing.

Smells like blackberry vinegar- it's super sour, but also kinda vinegary, which is a problem for me.

This honestly tastes like blackberries soaked in vinegar. There's a bit of oak here, but it's honestly too sour, and too vinegary. I like sour beers, a lot, actually- but this seems just poorly made to me.

This is kind of thin, with not a lot of drinkability. There's a normal level of carbonation.

This really did not do it for me.
