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.

Bottle shared in London - many thanks to Bruce. Pours clear, blue-brown with a froth, beige head. Leathery dark berries on the nose, some decent funk, toasted wood. Medium sweet flavor with assertive tart berries, cleansing acidity, light herbs, pepper. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Finishes with strong acidic burn, some further ripe berries, a bit of tangy wood, a bit of alcohol warmth. A punchy Cascade sour; or, in other words, a Cascade sour.

Reddish in color with small head to it. I don’t get all that much elderberry, but there is some grape and nondescript berry aroma to it. Lightly floral with plenty of wood and acidity. The flavor is lightly acetic, but still maintains a good lactic character as well. Plenty of fruit, some spicy wood, light tannins, and a bit of booze. Really different.
