On tap at Stoen sour fest. Pours a dark brown with a very small light tan head that has good retention and leaves light lacing on the glass. Looks quite cruddy in the glass. The aroma is huge fruit. The blackberry and cherry both come through strongly. Some light bourbon, oak, and acetic notes come through as well. The taste is sweet with big fruit. A lot of berry come through (blackberry, raspberry) as well as the cherry with a good tartness. Light bourbon notes come through in the taste as well. The finish has a bit of an acetic burn to it. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Overall, quite an enjoyable beer. I look forward to trying it in the future to see how it is as the fruit fades a bit.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured into an over-sized wine glass. Dark brown with a raspberry tint. Evocative notes of blackberries comes forward immediately. Allowing the smell to linger a bit, you'll find a touch of the barrel underneath the berry bomb. Very pretty in appearance and smell.
Slightly acidic with a balsamic note. Sour and funky, but fruity and complex. Lots of berry notes (including the clearly advertised blackberry and cherry). As it warms and opens up in the glass a bit, I do catch more malt notes, including caramel and toffee. Mouthfeel is pretty light and head retention is good. Carbonation is spot on for the intensity of flavor and helps the palate process the sour and fruit notes.
Makes my mouth water. All in all, a very nice sour. And damn, I am craving a nice beef or lamb stew to demolish with this.
