Ayup. Check the throat of the burner for cobwebs and insect parts and adjust the venturi for a
nice clean burning flame. The air to gas mix is off somehow and creating the soot.Pro-Tip: Take

I don't think the flavor is blackberry- it tastes more like blueberry to me. I think that a
lighter 65% barley, 25%wheat, 10% honey beer, fermented with lager yeast at 50 degrees, with
IBUs of about 1...

Upland Kiwi LambicSeriously though if you like lambics any of the Upland series is good.
