PH8PH8
Notes: A perfect sour ale to indulge in year round, kettle soured and fruited with blueberries & blackberries. It is well-balanced with a firm, but not overbearing citrus tartness, crisp and refreshing.

Decanted from a 16 oz (473 ml) can into a Captain Lawrence muffin top pint glass; canned 04/24/20, code PH8 BERRY SOUR.
A: Pours a hazy, garnet red color with raspberry highlights, a short-lived frothy, pink head, rim retention, and essentially no lacing.
S: Aromas of various berries, especially cranberry, strawberry, and maybe cherry at first. Very vinous with a Pinto Noir element. Warms to a light sulfur note.
T: Dry and puckeringly sour at first. Flavor is, again, a berry melange although more cranberry along with blue-, black-, and boysenberry, but has plenty of lemon or lime citrus to boot. Bitterness not so much in evidence.
M: Light bodied with relatively low carbonation (although persists lightly throughout). Makes you want to take another drink.
O: This is my first beer from Transmitter and what an extraordinary first: this is a sour for the working man (or woman). Pretty, fruity, bone dry, puckeringly sour, but still fruity as all get out. If I could, I would drink this for breakfast every day and live to 100.
