I found it more acidic than sour. Nevertheless overall a good beer. Easy to drink. Tastes more like a cider than a beer due to the pronounced berry flavor which is expected from a blackberry sour ale

A puffy, soft Pepto pink head rests atop a dark red chill hazed body.

Smell is strawberry and blackberry Gushers with a hint of spice or pepper.

Taste is tart sour blackberry-cherry exclusively, through a medium-thin body with a crisp dry finish.

From a bottle, pours a lovely raspberry red. No head or lacing to speak of. Smell isn't overwhelming, but there is tartness and a hint of berries. The flavor doesn't disappoint. Quite tart with just the tiniest bit of sweetness. It's slightly mouth-puckering, which is what I like in a sour. Well carbonated, and all around enjoyable and refreshing.

This is one I will definitely get again.
