8 oz. pour at the Cascade Barrel House on 8/19/2014. Third of four pours (preceded by Sang Noir and Noyaux). Less complex than the previous pours. Low acidity and drier than most lambics, it lacked the complexity than my previous two pours. More interesting than most lambics, but not in the same league as Sang Noir or Noyaux. Raspberry with a bit of oak Light to very light body.

Cask, 8oz pour at the brewery, served in a snifter. Beer poured straight from the barrel.

A: Pours a deep shade of violet with a thin light pink head.
S: Rich and jammy notes of earthy raspberries. Very jammy and lightly bitter. Smells just like musty fresh fruit.
T: Follows the nose with huge and dominant flavors of fresh raspberry juice, raspberry jam, and raspberry preserves. Tartness is mild and berry-like. The barrel quality is musty and drying, but the berry sweetness balances. There's a touch of light wheat in the very mild and soft finish, with a jammy aftertaste that's quickly dissipates. Not crushingly sour at all, nor acetic or tart. Very balanced.
M: Very soft and fluffy body, with soft carbonation that foams up a bit on my palate. Medium-full body, chewy, decadent and smooth.
O: One of the most flavorful, balanced, and easy to drink sour beers I've had. Extremely quaffable.

Thanks to Skuter for sharing this one at his tasting.

2014 project.

Pours a murky crimson red with a foamy reddish-white head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is sour with malt, raspberry, raspberry juice, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with sour raspberry and raspberry juice flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with great fresh raspberry qualities all around.

Serving type: bottle.
