Outstanding
Notes: At 5.1% ABV, Thicket as Thieves starts life as a sour farmhouse ale brewed entirely with local malt from Riverbend Malt House. It is then re-fermented on over 1 pound per gallon of blackberry puree for a delightfully tart and juicy flavor with a dry finish.

4.31/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Arrives with a raspberry jam color (though this is brewed with blackberries) and is capped by a mauve head that leaves a few squiggles behind

Smell: Blackberry puree, with a tart edge

Taste: Fruit forward, with the blackberry puree flavor building in tartness, through the middle; after the swallow, the flavors remain intense, with a dry, oaky finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation; somewhat puckery

Overall: This beer clearly benefited from its time in the foeder, as you can taste the oak in the finish; another nice sour from the Wooden Robot team
