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.

sebletitje (9348) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 25, 2016
Draft @ Borefts 2016. Ambrée, presque acajou col beige. Arôme au nez assez marqué niveau fruité noir, sureau en retrait tjrs avec cet accompagnement de boisé et de funk. Retrouve fines effluves vineuses sans pour cela qu’elles soient trop mises en avant. Palais est marqué entre son caractère malté, fruité noir avec un sureau qui est correcte mais où le côté aigre lactique ne fonctionne peut-être pas trop. Retrouve le côté aigre mais sans vraiment approcher la signature belge, on reste dans du fait US avec un profil centré sur cet usage parfois un peu trop abusif de levures sauvages forçant les papilles à avaler plus qu’il ne faut de ce côté aigre. Encore une fois, correcte mais certainement pas au prix demandé aux US et encore moins en Europe.

Sampled @ Borefts Beer Festival 2016, Day 1. Nice clear deep dark red to almost purple color, small to average sized white head. Smell and taste sourness, red berries, berries. Quite typical Flemish red-brown flavors, but not as harsh as they sometimes get, so fairly nice.

Of all the fruit styled sours from Cascade that I have tasted at Borefts this was the nicest. The sourness was perfect and the elderberry a good addition, really had the nice bits from the elderberry. Wonderful.
