The beer pours a soft hazy copper color with pinkish-red highlights and a well-formed head. Up front in the aroma you get blackberries followed by some doughy/bready wheat, and a hint of sour. Don’t expect much from the hops in this style. Regarding the flavor, you are taken on an interesting journey when you put this beer to your lips. Initially you get hit with a refreshing tart sensation, then quickly a salty and sweet blackberry flavor, then the beer finishes tart and semi-sweet with just a small touch of bitterness. Because of the tartness and salt, I can’t help but be reminded of a margarita in a way. I enjoyed this beer quite a bit, and could see downing a lot of it on a hot summer day. I really like that the blackberries are not overplayed. To me the beer could have used more body, but the high carbonation does make up for it a bit though.
