This beer was presented as a White Sour Ale with blackberries and blueberries.  It poured clear and pink with modest head retention.  At first whiff the aroma announced that this was a serious sour ale with plenty of brett funk in the nose.  The berries played a background role in both the aroma and flavor profiles.  The initial burst of brett continued through the finish unabated.  This ale evinced medium body and carbonation, and seemed to be sessionable in that there was no alcohol warmth evident.  A complex and refreshing brew, this is decidedly a beer for sour lovers and not at all for those who have not yet acquired the taste.
