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.

On tap for Beachwood Sour Fest at Beachwood BBQ & Brewing in Long Beach, CA.
Pours a murky crimson-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is slightly sour and tart with malt, red wine, wood, and berry aromas. Taste is much the same with sour berry, red wine, and wood flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp and dry mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a fairly prominent red wine and wood presence alongside the elderberries.
Serving type: on-tap
