This beer surprised me. It has a great balance of a very pleasing sour lacto taste and a slightly sweet blackberry flavor that comes in towards the end. Neither overwhelms but works well in a very drinkable, refreshing beer. I also picked up a little bit of a wood flavor. Not sure where it came from but it adds to the overall enjoyment (for lack of a better word) and dare I say complexity of this sour. I would definitely seek this out.
