Last taster of the event - Port's Barrel Blast
A - Pinkish gold type color - more on the pink side, carbonated white head off the tap
S - Fruity, sour and sweet with light oakiness - didn't pick up a strong smell from the strawberries more of the sour and sweet with a little funk
T - Sweet and crisp with following sourness and hints of oakiness before the funk sets in and sneaks in the fruit sense - for being aged with strawberries it played with my palate and I picked up cherry and grape more than the strawberry. Picked up vanilla and oak but initially wrote it off to all the stouts of the day.
M - Tart crisp finish. Mix of flavors playing with you on this one - finished up the day with this and it was the light dry enjoyment to regain life in my palate. Picked up vanilla and some oak, and a mix of fruits though Strawberry wasn't strong I picked up more cherry and grape type flavors with the sour and tartness. Not as sweet as some of the other sours of the day. Medium to high carbonation.
D - Recommended, a few of these throughout the day would have been a nice crisp refresher - had some great sours and this one was nice and crisp and tasty - sour, sweet, funky, with a dry finish. A nice example and well worth a try.

draft at tasty in raleigh.
dark brownish red color with a very slight head. smell of strawberries, tartness. taste is lip puckering sour and tart with a great dryness on the finish. strawberry flavor is slight. hard to believe the ABV. easy drinking. bourbon barrel is slightly apparent.medium bodied and mild carbonation.
overall an impressive sour!
