McMenamins Pub Crawl 2017 — photo 37 of 269: A sample of Boysenberry Semi-Sweet Tart which I tried at the McMenamins Mall 205 Pub in eastern Portland, Oregon. According to the brewer:
“An old favorite has finally returned, and better late than never I always say. As the cousin to the popular Purple Haze, this tart beer will have you begging for more. With a nice, subtle tartness and a clean fruit flavor, it’s the perfect pick for an almost summer day. All you’re missing now is a catchy haiku, like ‘Boysenberry tart / Refreshing beer with some fruit / Now I’m good to go.’” Measurements: 5.6% ABV • 20 IBUI forgot that I had already tried a sample ten days previously. My notes from this second time read: “Not bad ... maybe the best McMenamins fruit beer, but I wouldn’t want a whole pint.” May 2017. Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Panasonic Lumix 12-35mm f/2.8 zoom lens.
