375ml bottle poured for onsite consumption at HF in September 2018.

Pours slightly cloudy with a careful pour and use of a second glass for yeast/fruit remains. Purple hued straw with big bubbled head. The head settles into a few floating islands with a bit of a bubbly collar.

Aroma is tart fresh berry, hint of earthy wood. Hint of sweet tart candy.

Flavor has a smooth but persistent tartness. The tartness is from the base beer as well as the fresh blackberries. Subtle berry sweetness and a hint of farmhouse funk.

Soft and smooth, moderate carbonation and a medium body.

Overall the blackberry is a great compliment to this excellent base brew. One of the better fruited variants.

Served from a 375mL bottle at the Hill Farmstead brewery taproom on 2/7/18. Bottle split into two bulb glasses, shared with Brian.

The color of this beer instantly stands out, it's somewhere between maroon and dark pink. Lightly hazy with a small light-pink head that reduces to a ring.

Aromas are immediately noticable and potent - raspberries and tart fruit with some oak and farmhouse funk, white wine. A punch in the face of raspberries!

On the tongue it's pretty dry with tart but not overly acidic raspberry notes. Citrus and champagne-like wine, light oak and lemongrass on the finish. Light, crisp body with medium carbonation.

Overall a real treat, one of my favorite Flora variants.
