Pours a darker muddled cola with auburn hues while topped with an off-white beige head... Aroma of dark berry jam with the expected cascade sour note. Little sweet tart action again but a deeper dark berry essence... Flavors pack a decent dark berry sour punch with the typical cascade sour qualities. Medium bodied with semi-lively carbonation. Nice and enjoyable.

On tap at the barrel room yesterday but as a live barrel version (called Wild Elderberry)

A rather pinkish pour, this smells like a very buttery pie crust with cherry brightness. Tasted like buttered cherries and raspberries, enjoyable even, in small quantities.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. 2011 project.

Appearance - Deep red. Thick collar after a medium head dissipates.

Smell - I don't know what an elderberry is supposed to smell or taste like, but this has some blueberry and cherry aromas. Lots of caramel and some oak.

Taste - Deep caramel. Fruity. Again kinda like cherries. Oaky.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Sour. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Wish I knew what an elderberry tasted like. Enjoyable sour.
