96pointsArea Two Black Raspberry

This deep purple ale has a rouge foam that rings the edge of the glass, which is enough of a reason to buy this beer—It's mesmerizing to look at. The blackberry in this lambic, created by Area Two, a sour project by the brewery, is the star of the show and shows off all the versatility of the fruit. It's tart and sweet, assertive yet subdued. With mellow acidity and a dusting of chocolate, it's slightly thick and jammy. It's a beer that is made by years of honing a skill, not just a lucky one-time batch. John Holl
