BARLEYWINEO (106) - Tacoma, USA - APR 28, 2012
4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
A: Poured a deep purplish black color with great carbonation leaving a reddigh, purple cap with nice bubbles and lacing. Sexy.
S: Oh my. Creamed my shorts. Fresh blackberry and raspberry battle with a sting lacto presence coupled with vanilla and wood
T: Eventhought this beer by name boasts a raspberry note it seems to reveal big blackberry tasting notes with light raspberry secondary. It has a lacto/booze sting with fresh blackbeery juice. The back reveals a one time white fruit presence, like a pear, apple and perhaps even a white grape, not more so in the taste but in the feel, like remnants of The Vine feeling.
M: Decadent and delicous for a sour. Nice body, taste and well carbonated
O: Most excellent
