Tastes great, but this beer is so turbid that chunks of blackberry ( I hope its blackberry) are floating in it.

750 mL bottle poured into a pint glass.

Appearance - Murky reddish brown. Not much of a head, if anything.

Smell - Smells pretty nice. Berries. Acetic acid. Red wine and oak.

Taste - Berry flavor is strong up front. Caramel malt. Sourness kicks in with some oak and red wine, but then it all drops off and leaves a cardboard staleness in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Low carbonation. Slick feel from the seemingly oxidized nature.

Overall - Promising aroma, but kinda feel apart.

Incredible beer. You can taste the fruit, but not overwhelming. They do no wrong at Rivertown
