The beer smells of an earthy red wine and berries

The flavor follows of cranberries, blackberries, cherries. It's a medium plus tart quality without too much to back it up. There's apple cider vinegar tart. A light clean finish.

An earthy and reasonably complex beer, but I really could have used more aggressive fruit qualities.

Fantastic beer, was probably better fresher but still great. I don't regret going after it.

Pours a dark red/black with a slight pinkish hue on the head. Head is not think but gives a decent half inch head.

S- super tart. Sharp fruit with a good dry finish.

T- tons of black berry. Super sweet and sour. Lots of dry wood and oak. A slight bitter ness on the back end that makes the sourness a little tamed. It literally tastes like those blackberry warheads that I used to eat as a kid, so it is slightly nostalgic.

M- medium body with a mid level carbonation. The sour ness of this beer is tamed a little bit by the woody finish.

O- an amazing lambic. As far as a blackberry beer goes I can't imagine this getting any better. The taste is definitely the highlight of this beer. Still seek out in the future.
