COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Track 5 is a blend of two of our best fruited sour beers. An equal blend of Red Poppy and Framboise de Amorosa. Once the beers were blended we added additional fruit and let them rest in another set of French Oak barrels. The aroma is an explosion of red wine and oak notes. A jammy fruit presence dominates the mid-palate of the beer before a bracing tannin laced dryness pervades the finish. All told an exceptionally complex marriage between fruit, oak and red wine expressions.

Bottle. Murky reddish brown pour with an off white head. Big raspberry nose. It is exactly the blend of Red Poppy and Framboise de Amorosa. Delicious!!!!!

Enjoyed at a recent Seattle tasting. It was pretty late in the evening when we got to this one, so my ratings are less than detailed. That said: huge raspberry aroma, enjoyable fruity tartness.

Meilby (8274) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 20, 2014
Bottle 375ml @ fonefan
Pours clear amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is sour with notes of malt, caramel, raspberries, vinous and oak. Taste is medium sweet and medium sour with a long dry sour, raspberry and vinous finish. Body is medium to full, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

yngwie (14170) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 20, 2014
Bottle. It pours an almost clear body, dark amber to light brown in color, topped by a minimal sized light beige head. The aroma has a vinegary raspberry touch, some caramel roasted malt notes, lots of vinous hints, and also some leather and oak. Not vanilla though. Itís full-bodied, warming and tart, with a low but pleasant level of carbonation. Roasted malt hints, caramel too, with dried fruits, leather hints and a vinous, oaked touch. Raisins, raspberry and some prunes too. Lasting finish. Perhaps a bit low on aroma, but itís sure a fine one that I could have more of. 141220

Bottle @ fonefan tasting. Hazy deep reddish amber with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, heavy raspberries, wood and tart. Flavor is quite sweet and rather acidic. Dry and rather acidic finish. 201214

phaleslu (6843) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 12, 2014
Bottle shared by brew3crew - thanks again, Jason! Porus a muddy orange color with no head. I think I got the last pour of this one, so it wasnít as clean as the others got. Notes of berry fruits - sour cherry, mostly - with oak, lactic and acetic funk, brown sugar, yogurt, earh, red wine, and tannins. Light-medium bodied, with low carbonation and a sour, funky mouthfeel. Muddled. I like the elements better than the blend.

DrSilverworm (7001) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 10, 2014
12.7oz bottle, split with brew3crew and co. Hazy dark red brown color. Thin ring of off-white head. Whoa.. Big sour cherry aroma, really nice, nice tannic, kind of spicy and woody. Touch of cream. Moderate sweet taste, kind of a nice bigger sour taste, that buzzes in the back of my head a little bit. Medium-plus body. Smooth, kind of slick and syrupy texture, lighter carbonation. Really satisfying tasty sour brown. Very punchy. Like it a lot.

mcberko (7248) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 8, 2014
375mL bottle, pours a cloudy dark burgundy with a small beige head. Aroma brings out complex raspberries and cherries, along with oak, sourness, and wood. Flavour is really nice, with loads of raspberries, followed by cherries, intense sourness, and oak. Highly complex, very tart, wild, and oaky. Wonderful stuff.

Ferris (5009) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2014
Bottle - Smells like jam. Redish orange with a decent light beige head. Jammy, tart berries and a nice de sweetness. Nice, but very jammy.
