Draft at Churchill’s. Dark amber pour, thin off white head. Cherry, raspberry, stone fruit, acidic sourness, light oak, white vinegar, and some sweetness. Very fruity, strong sweet fruits in the aroma, and pretty strong sour. Not for the sour newbie, but good.

Pours a dark amber color with a small tan head. Nose is a bit on the sweet side with a nice vanilla, bourbon, and fruit jam note. Plenty of raspberry and cherry with a bit of peach and apricot aromas. There is a mild oakiness, maybe some strawberry, and a bit of caramel. The flavor is also a bit sweet with the bourbon/vanilla, malt, and fruit notes. But, there is a good tartness to it, too. Plenty of cherry flavor, some raspberry, and a hint of strawberry jam.

Barrel at the Barrel House. Crazy fruit cocktail nose, vanilla yogurt, funk. Exquisite nose, though somewhat faint. Watermelon dark pink color with lace. Quite sour, lots of lactic yogurt, good fruit: apricot, raspberry, strawbeery, cherry. Light dust and barnyard. Fantastic.

Barrel at the Barrel House. Pours hazy/murky dark apricot. Odor is sort of tinned fruit juice - sharply sour - certainly apricot is present. Flavor is nicely sour with apricot and cherry. The bourbon/vanilla/oak is rather overcome by all the excellent flavors. Finishes smooth,tart and sour.

On tap at Cascade Brewing, pours a cloudy / opaque orange with a small white head. Aroma of mixed berries, bourbon, slight tartness and slight sweetness. Flavour brings out a lot of the mixed fruit, especially berry-wise, not much of the bourbon, but I think the barrels take out some of the sourness. Very nice.

Oh lord is this good. Orangish pour with little to no head. But just a bomb of fruity goodness. Numerous flavors are coming through with a nice tart and sour finish. Awesome!
