This live barrel of NW style sour red ale was initially aged for six months in French oak wine barrels, then additionally aged on elderberries. Sharp wine, dark raisins, red grapes and cereal notes greet you on the nose. Tart dark fruit and grapes on the palate lead to a sparkling crisp dry finish with hints of fresh elderberries and grape skins.

Dégustée chez Alexandre Mathieu. Cheers buddy! Teinte brune semblable à celle d’un BarleyWine américain offrant peu de mousse. Arômes de petites fleurs blanches des champs semblables à du muguet, malgré les vapeurs acétiques importantes. Goût prononcé de bleuets, sucre modéré mais une acidité beaucoup trop intense qui m’empêche d’apprécier ce fruit délicat et raffiné. Difficile à boire.

j12601 (8700) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 20, 2015
Bottle at Max & Jess’s Taco Party! Pours a deep brown with a thin tan head. Cheesy and funky, berries on the nose over malt and funky acid. Medium bodied, tart and funky, a bit of dark malt, long tangy berries, a hint of sweetness and tangy acid into the finish. Very tasty, big acid.

On tap at the barrel house in Portland. Pours brown with a small head. Aroma of berries, some sourness, light oak, more dark fruits, and some malts. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not bad at all but sort of weird on the finish.
