2011 Vintage at the Barrel Room

A: small tan head with an edge of grey rapidly dissipates to a ring of medium bubbles. Murky red color.

S: Port and cherry aromas are detectable from a distance. Lactic tang, a bit of apple. A little bit of wood. Some whiffs of funk when swirling. Wish the Barrel House served their beers in glasses better suited to assessing aroma.

T: Woody and earthy, lots of lactic. Hard to pick out specifics, but there's lots of dark fruit and some wine notes.

M: Well carbonated, medium body. Good linger. Some mild astringency.

O: Rich, complex and tasty, although the flavors sort of blur together making it hard to pick out the details. Quite enjoyable, though.

Thanks to thirdeye11 for sharing this bottle. It was part of a great tasting that included seven bottled Cascade sours.

The beer pours a murky brown color with a tan head. The aroma is dark fruit with some tart cherries. The flavor is oak, tartness and cherries. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Review from memory, beer shared with friends about a year ago. Very sour and refreshing, with notes of cherries, vinegar, oak and lambic funk. We had this beer between two imperial stouts, and it was an excellent decision.

Enjoyed on draft at Cascade, poured into a snifter. Pours a deep garnet red with two fingers of head and oily lacing. Loads of tart cherries in the nose and a bit of funk. The taste follows suit, much more tart than I expected from the nose. There's definitely some notes of vinegar present. Like most of their beers, the alcohol is very well hidden. Lot's of stuff happening with this funky little brew. I recommend you try this one for yourself and let us know what you think. Cheers!
