12 ounce can, canned on 08/01/2018. Served in a tulip glass, the beer pours a hazy reddish/purple color with about an inch pink head. Head retention is good and there's a small amount of lacing. Aroma is nice and fruity, it smells mostly like blackberries and raspberries, along with some vanilla. I think the taste pretty much follows the aroma, but there's also some earthy tartness noticeable too. It really is a fresh tart berry flavor in this brew, and it's nice and refreshing. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit slick and is easy to drink with a moderate amount of carbonation. Once again, Urban Artifact has put out a great fruity tart brew! Definitely pick some up if you come across it!

I've been a fan of these Urban Artifact fruity brews from the beginning. This one is yet another great cooking experiment.

It pours red/purple and cloudy, with a fair amount of fizz. The aroma is a skunky fruity smell. The taste is tart and fruity, as expected. A bit of yeasty, fruity sour has to be good for your digestion, no?

Recommended. I will just keep buying whatever they send up this way.

Midwest Fruit Tart brewed with 1280lbs of blackberries, 1280lbs of raspberries, and 30g of vanilla beans per 30BBL batch. Poured from a can into an Urban Artifact Thoroughbred glass. The pour is stunning. It's hazy and reddish-purple with a big fluffy pink head. It looks like a plum with cotton candy on top. The nose just reeks of raspberries. Just smelling this beer pinches my cheeks. I also get a hint of vanilla in there as well.

Medium-light body with a firm feel and a perfectly balanced tart, fruity flavor. Strong flavors up front of raspberries and grape juice, then a hint of vanilla at mid-palate. The tartness is at a perfect level. It's dry and mouth-watering, but not obnoxiously sour. The acidity is maintained across the palate and lingers on the finish, leaving flavors of dark berries, apple skins, and red wine.

Another awesome beer from Urban Artifact. I just love their approach to sour beers. They use tons of fresh fruit so that the natural flavors are emphasized and they don't feel the need to turn sour beer making into a pecker contest. They are pleasantly tart, but not over-the-top.
