West Sixth Brewing Sixfold VI: Blackberries
What the brewers say
"Aged in red-wine barrels with whole blackberries."
What our panel thought
"Ripe blackberry nose with additional layers of oak and cherries atop an underlying barnyard Brett character. Well-balanced mouthfeel. Initial jammy berry flavor quickly overtaken by strong oak, which becomes dominant. A wood beer with fruit flavor."
What our editors thought
"Sharp tannic wood nearly overwhelms the berry notes on the nose. The sip is biting with wood and fruit tannins piling on to a sharp acidity."
