Pour is a dark opaque purple with a pink head. Nose is faint, touch of oak and a very fleshy blackberry, a bit seedy and pitted. Taste is similar, the blackberry is seedy, the Brett is very strong, a little too strong as it drowns out the blackberry. Very faint in flavor. Strong carb on the light body.

Blend 3 - great combination of sour and blackberry. Feels jammy, tastes of fresh blackberries finishes dry.

some serious deep purple pour, like someone took Barney and Grimmace, fed them to a dragon and it shit them out in a blackberry patch. Agro tannin from the fruit/oak, almost a cloying dryness on the tongue, but a gorgeous fruit flavor with a mild acidity and funkness from JK cellar love. One of a kind for a blackberry sour/wild that I've tried. Dig it

Jester King brings another dry and less sweet version of a fruited sour and are very successful. There are real marriage of the fruit and base beer, hard to tell where one ends and the other begins. batch 2 Apr14'

What an amazing sour! Deep purple. Mild funk and berry on the nose. Smooth and crisp. Sweet, tart, berry, Brett! Sour on the back end. So drinkable and amazing. Give me more!
