Hazy amber color. Very nice sour nose with amazing raspberry notes and touch of oak. Very tart, tons of fresh raspberries with cherries, green apples and oak. It’s so sour, it’s so intense. I wasn’t expecting the sourness. So nice for a fruit sour. Dry, sour and raspberry finish. JStax (6913) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - AUG 16, 2017

Thanks Carl! Nice red pour with pink head. Raspberry, funk, tart, and mild acidity. Beautifully balanced. Awesome. fiery_1 (1363) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 25, 2017
750ml bottle @ the office. Pours a cloudy rusty brown with a thin off-white head. Nose is a nice tart raspberry note with an oak barrel influence. Flavour is acidic sour but the raspberry is nice and light. The lacto is prevalent while the oak barrel character is muted. Ferris (15901) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 25, 2017
Bottle - Prune and sour cherry, touch of balsamic. Cloudy copper with a small head. Balsamic and sour cherry, touch of acidity. Nice. Oakes (17831) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 25, 2017
Muddy, light brown, no head. The oak comes through, the raspberry comes through, some woody notes...all the elements here. Nice, oaky, light raspberry, tart...complex...I like this stuff. Very good. And for rare barrel to have this sort of balance, restraint and sophistication.
