Roses by the Stairs Brewing Blackberry-Picking

What the brewers say

“Quick sour with active and mixed culture of Lacto and kveik. Berliner-style with Arizona-grown blackberries.”

What our panel thought

“Bright expression of ripe blackberry, full of earthy hedgerow notes on the nose, hinting at bramble. A deep, satisfying sweetness on the palate, with a malty undertone of bread or pie crust—blackberry tart. Long, dry finish, with distinct tartness balanced by a hint of sweetness.”

What our editors thought

“Sweaty, musty locker-room nose with woody hints of berry. Brighter in the sip, with real fruit and near-dryness that brings out a wine-like berry crispness.”
