Spilt with rudzud
Light fizzy bubbly off white head fades fairly quickly, clear mahogany maroon cranberry color

Nose tart souring bacteria funk, big tart marionberry and boysenberry, very faint lemon, huge buttery oak and weird yeasty bread thing

Taste very tart, big souring bacteria funk, toasted buttery oak, tons of berry, boysenberry, marionberry, general sour berry, little lemon on the back end, little tripel spice, a touch of alcohol, candy like sweetness flemmy acidic finish, lingering berry

Mouth is med bod but a bit syrupy, flemmy acidic, medium carb, little alcohol

Overall pretty good, most of the expected flavors are there, aroma muted a bit and overly oaked

Split with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice dark ruby hue with a thin white head that fades to leave light wisps.

S - Aromas of some buttery oak, flashes of sticky berries. Not much lemon and as it warms the buttery oak comes out even more.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with loads of tart berries and bright lemon peel. Finish is super tart lingering almost berry pie like. The tripel is really just there as a high ABV base, though the alcohol is slightly noticeable.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, good tartness, alcohol hidden well. It is quite flemmy though.

O - Overall this was a very solid sour ale, the berries are quite nice along with good lemons. Very enjoyable.

L: Dark red hue.
S: Weak smell of berries.
T: Soft berry notes lead to a strong lemon kick in the middle that fades in the end. Extremely sour ending that fades away.
F: Very sour lemony punch. More sour than anything else I've had.
O: Unique beer that's worth trying. It is very sour with lemon flavors but isn't just only that flavor.

That alcohol and residual fruit just dominate the tartness for me to love it. I like the flavor, but just wish it wasn't so unbalanced. Maybe aging would help

2017 Vintage

Appearance: Slightly cloudy violet-purple color with yellow undertones. The beer has a modest-sized light violet head that dissipated fairly quickly. Very appealing appearance.

Smell: Berries, I'm assuming marionberries, are the featured attraction, but I also get some citrus notes, a touch of mild grassy/hay notes and very mild funk notes.

Taste: Tart marionberries, citrus notes, mild hay notes, and very mild funk notes. The beer is modestly sour and finishes on a dry citrus note.

Mouth-feel: Body is on the lighter side of medium with a modest level of carbonation.

Overall; A tasty wild ale. The color is appealing and unique and all the flavor notes complement each other well.

Pours an interesting color, I'd call it purple. Aroma of berry sourness. Nothing specific about marionberry that makes me proclaim you can discern this berry as opposed to a blackberry or whatnot. Its a berry fruity sourness you smell.

Taste is plenty yummy, good dry aspect paired with the berry juice, lactic sourness all over it. Hides the alcohol amazingly well. I know its easy to bag on Cascade and the Bruery's sour program, but I thought this really showcased what they both do well: make lactic, somewhat acidic sours that are clean and bereft of wet dog in a phone booth funkiness.

Drank this on tap at the brewery and in the spa suite for Jesse's bachelor party. Drinks so easy for something that is similar strength wise to Bigfoot!

750ml capped bottle served in a little snifter, side by side with the Cascade version. 07/21/17 might be printed on the bottle, but it's ghostly, so it's hard to tell.

Pours a clear purplish/red with no head and little carbonation. Definitely clearer and stiller than the Cascade version. Smell is tart and fruity, with a more distinct berry characteristic than the Cascade.

Taste is more astringent tart than the Cascade. Still berries.

Mouthfeel is flatter, drier. Overall, it's good. I like the Cascade better.

Quick review at the breury. Very berry foward on the nose and taste. Very tart with more berry character. Lactic tartness most present. Can't specifically identify the madionberry, but tasty nonetheless. It gets a 87.5/100.
