look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Pours a cranberry/blackberry juice color capped by a one finger mauve head which fades to a collar; spotty lacing

Smell: Tart lemon and blackberry tempered by oak

Taste: Acetic blackberry flavors forward with a lemony tart aspect building; somewhat funky, through the middle, with the oak emerging after the swallow, drying out the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with low to moderate carbonation; prickly

Overall: Tarter than many of the Fonta Flora fruited sours but still has the strong fruit flavors that are the brewery's trademark

Dark purple-red with a fizzy pastel violet head that dies to a persistently thick and creamy ring.

Smell is just loaded with blackberries. A touch of herbal greenery and even a floral, rose-like accent drastically alters what would be a hint of funk that's present.

Flavor is bursting with fresh, seedy blackberries. Snug Glove is absolutely overflowing with pressed blackberry juice, possibly moreso than my favorite blackberry sour, Nocturn Chrysalis. It's so much so it's damn near a full glass of straight up blackberries and I love it. Mildly supporting accents of black peppery oak and slightly souring tartness are accompanied by hints of lime and green apple.

The medium-thin body is propped up by a crisp but firm fizz and a semi-dry, ever-tingling finish.
