Aroma and Appearance: It pours a clear golden copper with a bit of foam and lots of tiny bubbles in the glass. The aroma is pretty much just blackberry and some peppery spice.
Flavour: The flavour is blackberry tart, sweet, some clove spic in there especially on the finish with more blackberry jam in the aftertaste.
Overall Impression: It’s a decent summer beer, but i don’t really love blackberries and they were pretty strong in this offering.
Rating: I give it an average rating 5/10, its drinkable, very one dimensional and the blackberries come through too strong for my liking.
Food Pairing: It would pair up nicely with some crackers and goat cheese.
As I am learning through trying a lot of different fruit beers, I don’t love the one’s that add sweetness to the beer. I like tartness (raspberries, huckleberries) without the sweetness.
