On tap @ Rare Barrel. Orange in color with some white foam. The stone fruits dominate here, but there is a bit of tart berry that peaks through. A bit of spice, almost like cinnamon sugar, and a whole lot of apricot and peach. Kind of cobbler-esque. The flavor is...sour. Very sour. But there is still a good amount of fruit character to it and some more of the berry than on the aroma. It would be quite excellent if it wasn’t so sour.

EBF rating in the backlog. Bottle at James’. Pours a hazed amber with a thin white head. Big raspberry jam with some currants and a bit of fruit and wood. Medium bodied, Long lime and acid, wood, toast and acidity. Lovely, bright and fun.

joeneugs (6372) - Livermore, California, USA - APR 3, 2017
On draft at Caps & Taps. It pours a light orange color with an off white head. The aroma is strong with peaches, apricots and some light notes of graham cracker and barrel. Not getting the raspberry. The flavor is very intensely sour with a good balance of fruity of peach, apricot and raspberry. Little funk. The acidity is pretty clean with some light graham cracker malts in the background. A bit too strong with the acid, like most RB sours, but I enjoyed the five ounce pour I got. Any more would be too much.

PhillyCraft (7990) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 1, 2017
Bottle, hazy orange with small head and light lacing. Nose is better than flavor with some nice sour stone fruit skins and lactic funk. Taste is painfully sharp with fuzzy peach skins, acid, polish, pink lemonade and lime. Never been a fan of Rare Barrel sours...they bite hard. I drank a few ounces of this one, but most drained her.

From notes. Enjoyed on draft at Hunahpu’s Day 2017 on March 11. The pour is a nice hazy golden orange with a thin white ring of head and a lack of lace. The aroma is good. It’s a little funky on the front end, but the balance of raspberry and peach/apricot is just fantastic. It’s got a great stone fruit presence and the raspberry adds a little tartness and sweetness to it. It’s sour, crisp, and wonderful. The flavor is even better. The stone fruits take over and the tart juiciness of them is just fantastic. The raspberry adds a little depth and complexity to it with a great balance. The mouth feel is light and crisp with a little softer carbonation and a lingeringly tart and sour fruity finish. This is a solid brew.
