This brewery rocks!!!!Only down side is huge money for this 750 bottle....forty bucks ouch. Never the less worth it as it has so much going on. Huge blackberry aroma off the start. Poured rose red. Light head. Flavors of everything, from hay, awesome fresh blackberries and ending of very tart acids. After all that the blackberries cruise back in for the finish line. A+

Tap. Pours hazy candy apple red, large pink creamy head, dissipates slowly, nice lacing. Aroma is fructe de padure, a hint of must. Flavor is light tart, blackberries, stems, a bit of must, oak tannins, light funk. Medium body. Tasty.

On tap at the barrel house in Portland. Pours purple with an off-white head. Aroma of berries, some sourness, light oak, and some pale malts. Flavor the same. Average texture. A pretty good beer.

2014 project bottle. Pours a bright clarity, dark red to almost purple color. Medium sized white head dies quickly. Nose is a complex berry medley with some orange, pineapple, strawberry notes too. Taste is initially full of berry and bright fruit expression. Quickly switched to a lactic tartness in the finish that reminds me of soured milk almost. That seems to go away a little in the second sip but then comes right back. The finish is really weird here. Its not a clean sharp lactobacillus flavor, its like a weird yogurt or something. Maybe its just a strain I havent encountered before in beer. Overall the fruit expression is where its at and this beer hits it right on the head with a significant tartness but not too overpowering. I like it.

No longer noted as a sour red/brown on bottle. Just a "Northwest Sour Ale" for the 2014 project. Still rating here. Pours beautiful purple red color with a pink head. Nice aroma with some vinegar and funk, acidic, lots of blackberries. Flavor follows closely, with a big explosion of sweet blackberries and puckering sour. Yum. Nothing really "flanders red" about this though.

Bottle. Pours a hazy reddish amber with a thick layer of pinkish head. Aroma is sour and tart with berries. Taste is great, tart with some funk.
