Pours a hazy ruby red to purple with a light slightly pink off white head. Nose is jam jar like. Berries and oak with light citrus notes as well. Taste is fairly juicy for the 2nd use berries thing. I’d say you get a bit more of the pithy sourness from the berries skins than the juice. Lemon peel and orange zest are light. Notes of cherries and un ripe plums also. Nice light mellow funkiness throughout this beer. Really enjoying the level of funk on this one. It’s enougg to take notice but not overpowering to where it overtakes the beer. Nice bit of tart kick and light pepper spice to finish along with smooth oak. Medium to full body which I am joying. Jamba Juice smoothie like, okay obviously not that thick but you get the point.

White head. Faded raspberry red.

Light in flavor. Light blackberries. Some funk and Brett. Farmhouse notes.

All in all this was just a light beer. Easy to drink but I want more berries so I prefer NC to this.

Bottle pour at Jester King Brewery in Austin, TX.

This one pours a lightly pinkish- purple, with a small head and lots of lacing.

This smells like jammy blackberry, lemon rind, cherry, oak, and vanilla.

Even though this is second use blackberries, there’s still a good amount of solid fruit flavor. It certainly doesn’t be dominate, though, with nice lemon candy and funk, some vanilla, a hint of cherry pit, etc.

This is light bodied and clean, with a good level of carbonation.

Thought isn’t a primary fruit fermentation, it’s still a wonderful fruity sour.
