Red body with a white head. Tasted of raspberries with a great dankness. I thought the price paid was a bit much for this beer, but it was still very solid na enjoyable to drink.

Beautiful ruby body with a pure white head. Blackberry dominates the nose and flavor with the wonderfully bready and funky notes typical of Allagash coolship beers. A welcome addition.

Pours a vibrant orange crimson. Very little head as standard on a sour beer, nice stream of bubbles constantly rising.

Aromas of hay and oak, sour apple, hint of blackberry. Notes of vanilla from the barrel, slightly funky.

Taste has an initial pucker, like sour unripe berries. Hayfield, green Apple, berry, oak, lemony tartness. Little vanilla in the finish across a light wheat bready sweetness. Berry builds as it warms.

Light bodied, bright and sharp carbonation, tart, finish is right between dry and sweet.

Overall this is a tasty sour, refrains from being to tart and the barrel and funky characteristics add a good depth of flavor. The blackberry is pretty light, comes across more as unripe berries than any particular fruit, but it does brighten some as it warms.
