Oregon City Pub Crawl 2017 — photo 39 of 46: A sample of Boysenberry Semi-Sweet Tart which I tried at the McMenamins West Linn Pub in the southern Portland metro area suburb of West Linn. 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 IBUMy notes from that day read: “A so-so beer ... a bit bland, like the other McMenamins fruit beers ... I would not want an entire pint of it.” May 2017. Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Panasonic Lumix 12-35mm f/2.8 zoom lens.
