Shared with JLindros and Francois.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice dark hazy purple garnet hue with a thin white head that gaffes to leave a thin halo.

S - Aromas of blackberry jam galore, rather sweet, light barrel notes. Just super berry jam goodness.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, great blackberry notes, jam, tart seeds and skins. Incredible blackberry jam notes. Super tart yet sweet.

M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, tart, lightly flemmy.

O - Overall this beer had excellent blackberry characteristics, really excellent jam notes.

Beautiful blackberry color. Little to no head. Blackberry tartness. Mouth puckering. Acidic with vinegar. Very sour and very easy to drink. I haven't had vsb yet, but this was up there for blackberry sours.

By far the best offering from ac golden. This is the beer that first turned me on to sours and it is holding up great 2 years later. sharp acidity, lots of blackberries, some wood.

Shared at DLD15. Thanks Tim for sharing this bottle with me and Dylan.

Pours a medium-dark shade of brown, perhaps a bit purple. Half finger white head that dies down fairly quickly. Smells of tart, acidic blackberries and plenty of oak, mild funk. It reminds me a bit of La Folie; but with an assload of blackberries. Very nice sweetness that is dry. Flavour is similar, tons of blackberry fruitiness, fairly sour and tart. Dry, not particularly jammy, but plenty of oak. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, not quite jammy, fairly dry and smooth, good carbonation. Overall, a very good beer with quite a bit of blackberries. Not sure it's better than New Glarus' rendition, but this is pretty dang good.

Bottle shared by Curran tonight.

Pours fairly dark crimson brown, slightly purple, with a quarter inch head, and a not a whole lot of lacing. The color on this one is really amazing.

Smells very strongly of juicy blackberry, with some lactic sourness, oak, and leather. Smells quite tasty.

Tastes great. This is one of the more oaky sours I've ever had, delicious, leathery, with some slight vanilla, and some juicy, but quite sour blackberry flavors. I'm picking up other indistinguishable dark fruit flavors as well.

This one is medium bodied, with a full, and tart but juicy mouthfeel. There is a fairly low level of carbonation. It's quite drinkable.

One of the best sours I've ever had, it's cool that a beer this good could (sort of) come from Coors.

Batch 1, bottled 10/18/12.
Very tart, but smooth malt behind. Blackberry is ideal for this style, IMO.
Tart subsides as second pour warms, and the sour just sticks to your lips.
Don't know how much longer these should sit, hate to see it get funky.
