Notes: This one-of-a-kind NW sour is a blend of Belgian strong blondes aged in white port barrels with raspberries, then blended with select barrels of strong blondes that were aged on the toasted meat from the apricot nut, or Noyeaux.

2015 bottling into Grimm tulip.

Poured a beautiful deep, translucent orange with a finger or two worth of head. Little to no lacing.

Smells great. Big, sour citrus notes, not much beyond that. Warmed up to a spruce pine tone. Solid

The taste is where it comes together, super refreshing with a mellow apricot complementing the tart berry affront. Hints at oak and white grape for me

Effervescent, borderline champagne feel, soon sidelined by the spunk and funk of yeast cultures.

Very complex, surprisingly. good on a sunny late spring/early summer afternoon. Will most definitely have another. Delicious!

Pours golden orange and extremely fizzy to start most likely because it’s a 2013 project. Aroma is fruity and tangy. Taste is complex with hints of raspberry and apricot lined with the barrel. Sour ending and oaky finish.

The closest I've come to loving a soda-adjacent sour (this was the "Frutopian" Noyaux, suggesting an awareness of this). The tangerine pumps up the Runts quotient.

Bottle: Poured a reddish color ale with a small bubbly head with no retention and no lacing. Aroma of vinegary notes with some raspberry and acidic notes is quite intense. Taste is a mix of vinegary notes with strong acidic content, some raspberry and light berry notes are also noticeable. Body is about average with good carbonation. There is some sign of a great beer but it is buried under a ton acidity and come close to resembling to vinegar.
