Great combination by Jacks Abby to use blackberries on red wine barrels. Both balance out nicely and create a sweet and tart berry presence. Highly drinkable without making you tear up for acidity. Highly enjoyable!

I think I'm probably coming in lower than the norm here, and that may just be that I'm not a huge fan of the style. I liked the tartness, which I thought was a good level, but it was completely devoid of carbonation and felt rather flat. The flavors didn't really jump out at me either. But then, I wasn't a huge fan of the base beer, so perhaps this isn't surprising?

Sampler on draught from the brewery. Pours a dark purple/red and very hazy. Can't see through. Both the smell and taste are hugely berry, almost juice-like. Sweet but not to sweet, sour but not overpowering. An awesome selection.
