On-tap at Bootlegger's

A: The pour is a deep purple color with a bit of cloudiness and no head at all.

S: The nose is very pleasant. There is a bit of lactic acidity and a nice tartness. The boysenberries don't make the beer overly fruity, but a nice hint of sweetness.

T: The beer has lactic tartness with a slight acetic character at first (though the vinegar dissipates with subsequent sips). The fruit skins provide some mild tannins and a bit of fruit flavor.

M: The lack of carbonation gives the perception of slickness on the tongue. The finish is moderately dry.

D: One of the better sour beers from Bootlegger's thus far. Boysenberries are a fruit you don't often see used, but they worked well here.
