Straight purple drank in color. The nose is blackberry and mangy fox. Tastes like 10 lbs of blackberries crushed into the glass with an astringent finish and heavy Brett funk. Not the most complex sour, but it's deliciously refreshing. Perfect for a summer pour.

So much Blackberries. I would recommend this over most of the crooked staves I've had.

Reviewing as I'm drinking it.

375ml purple wax top bottle that has been split with my brother while watching LSU stomp all over Kentucky.

Enjoyed from a 7venth Sun tulip and donated by my friend Dr. Love.

A - Dark purple/reddish hazy colored. Head lasted apx 30 seconds then quickly dissipated to nothingness even after a year of aging.

S - Berries, tart, oak.

T - Big dry tart flavor to start, followed by fizzy berries and small hint of oak & wood at the finish.

M - Found this one to be very light with a hint of mouth pucker to it. Tongue tingled from the carbonation, not very sour but the tart was noticeable.

O - Not overly complex. Beauty in its simplicity. My first CS brew and I am very pleased!

(side note: brother is not a beer snob and when asked for his review he stated "It's good. Like they made Sweet Tart's candy taste like drunken berries." Pretty accurate I think.)

Apparently I am too much of a CS homer, as I am failing to understand why this doesn't have higher reviews. Had this with DB Huna, Fou Foune, BB Cherry Origins and this was the highlight of the night for me.

A- Blabaer colored hue, perhaps a little lighter. Minimal head and lacing.

S- Blackberry funk, not an overpowering S on this sour.

T- Absolutely amazing! The blackberry comes through with the golden sour. Glorious!

M- Very light, almost like drinking water.

O- The best CS sour that I have had to date. Thanks Jer!
