This NW style sour ale is the Cerise Nouveau of cherry beers. It’s a blend of red ales aged in oak barrels for up to eight months, then aged on fresh Bing cherries for an additional three months. This beer is best served immediately, and as such, will only be sold at Barrel House and Raccoon Lodge.

Draft pour at the raccoon brew pub. Pours the darkest possible red with a fresh sweet cherry aroma. What an awesome beer this is. Black cherry flavor with near maximum tartness. Finishes with a sweet and sour berry combination along with a red wine touch. This stuff is awesome.

Deep purplish red in color... Aroma of oak, red wine, dark fleshy berries... Flavor is like the best blend of red wine and Flemish red, berries, tannins, and Cabernet blend beautifully with light fruity tartness... Great beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Another expensive beer from Cascade, but another that was worth every cent. Took a leap of faith with this bottle as they were not serving this at the pub at the time. Significantly better than the very nice kriek. Elegant is the first word that comes to mind. Very refined and decadent even for a sour, but not at the expense of the funk. Fruity, but not very sweet. Adequately sour with lots of lingering oak. Deeelicious."

Bottle - pours dark ruby red. Sour cherry and tartness in the aroma. The taste is sour cherry with a very tart finish. A little vinegary like a red Flemish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pulled out by Jo+Doug, thanks guys .. . pours a dark ruby .. mild head ring .. . moptop .. sour cherry, unripe cherry flesh (FLESH!!!), and mild vinaigrette .. . very tasty but a bit too one dimensional to be great .. . . Looks fun. They never let me do that though. It’s always, "feet first" "no you can’t go down with a baby" "put your swimsuit back on"

Deep reddish pour with purple. Head is pinkish. Aroma is fruity, sweet tart cherry, and berries. Sour at first but finishes with jammy flavor of berries and cherries
