Draft at the Barrel House into a branded stubby chalice, the beer is a ruby-red color with pinkish head. Blackberries upfront with lots of musty, tart, and earthy play. Nice oak presence. Good push-pull between sweet and tart. Moderate body and carbonation. Very well put together.

Serving type: on-tap

Poured on-tap in a 2oz taster at Cascade. Reviewed from notes. Wish I had more to go on, the notes might be scarce.

A- Half-finger white head, ringed white lacing. Burgundy with nice clarity.

S- Berry, sour and tart, some barrel aged scents, maybe pinot noir. Not picking up blackberry.

T- Sour with barrel aged flavors. Great flavor on this one.

M- Some light carbonation and wine-feel.

O- Tasty, subtle sour.

poured from tap. Pours a clear red color with a nice foamy head.

Very floral aromatics with some roses, violets, cherries, currants and a touch of fresh picked berries.

This has an excellent medium feel along with nice tart flavors of cherries, violets, roses and some currants.

A very tasty sour. Nice and tart without being overtly sour and more of the berry kick.

San Diego, CA

Dark violet in color with a very small dark khaki colored head. This leaves small dots of lace down the glass. Very pretty and unique color. I haven't seen many beers that look like this.

The aroma has quite a bit of authentic blackberry character, along with nice sour character, and distinct oak. This is complete, bright, and powerfully aromatic. Wonderful.

This is a marvelous blackberry sour. There is lots of juicy, bright, vibrant, authentic blackberry flavor, lots of acidic sour character, and distinct barrel. This is fantastic. I couldn't imagine a much better blackberry beer/sour.

Medium bodied with high carbonation. Perfectly appropriate.

Simply fantastic. This was everything I'd hoped for.

First had: on tap at Cascade, Portland, OR

Poured a cherry brown color with a big fluff of pinkish head. Scents of cherry, blackberry, and blueberry; moderately musty. Taste is full of berry goodness, tart and sour, with kind of a wheat beer acid profile, and a bit of funk as was detected in the nose. Medium-bodied, and a little harsh in the aftertaste, but very nice overall.
