Poured from tap at Cascade Barrel House.

Another winner from Cascade. This sour ale is all about the sour and dark fruit. Lots of berry on the nose, a hint of cherry, and that funky sour lacto coming off strongly.

On the palate the fruit dominates. Black cheery, blackberry, currant, with a hint of flowers and lots of tart yeast.

Very balanced and good, viscous texture. Alcohol kept in check by the intense flavors. Lots of acidity on the finish to round things out.

Overall a great sour, just a little short on the finish.

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.

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.

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.
