This is a nice idea but it comes across tasting too much like a flavored malt beverage or a soda pop. It needs some sour, wild yeast, more hops or more roast to work well.

Draft. Enjoyed at Town Hall Brewery. Another nice infusion beer! Poured into a small goblet a dark brown reddish color with a light tan head. I wouldn’t pick out blackberry specifically in the nose but you definitely pick out a fruit note in the nose. Sweet upfront notes with a little bitterness to it. Fruity. Medium mouthfeel. Really refreshing. No abv apparent. Would like better head retention. No lace.

Served in a chalice.

Served with little head. Leaves a bit of splattered lace. Color is a murky chocolate bark brown with a bright copper hue to it.

Aroma: Fresh blackberries and fruit show the most. Not sweet, but not tarty. No hops really show. Just fruit and malts.

Taste: The blackberries show a lot more here. A little more sweet, but a touch of tartness shows. Malty. Caramel and oats.

Mouthfeel: Sweet, lightly tart, and refreshing. Lighter bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Ends a bit malty.

Overall, this was a decent infusion, but it didn't stick out compared to others. Still very enjoyable and quite tasty. Easy drinking.
