I really didn't like the berry addition. It was a bit too sweet for my taste. The tartness was nice and I suppose it balanced the sweetness but still not my thing.

I really liked this one. It wasn't overly tart and didn't have fake fruit flavors. I felt it was a nice balance. The color of the beer was as advertised, the first beer Ive had like it. Actually got another one to bring home.

The beer hits of berry flavor up front. A wonderful soft fruit flavor of berry skin, medium tart, and then covered with iced tea powder mix. A well executed sour without too much tart or berry punch.

Pours with a hazy purple body. Looks, smells and tastes like it was made with a substantial load of bosenberries. Mildly sweet but moderately tart.
Nice tart and fruity aftertaste.

32 oz. growler poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Bright deep pink body. Pretty. Lightly pink white head.

Smell - Yogurt and berries. Some lemon.

Taste - Strong berry. Like blueberry, but berrier. Yogurt flavor, too.

Mouthfeel - Medium light. Very mild tartness. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Lotsa berries, not much else.
