Tap It Tuesday: Black Raspberry Reserve @ Cascade Brewing Barrel House

Cascade Barrel House Logo

This week’s Tap It Tuesday is LIVE: Black Raspberry Reserve, a favorite of the blenders. This NW style sour ale started out as blond ale that was barrel aged for one year before spending just 10 days on 60 pounds of blackcap raspberries: think Nouveau Boujoulais with blackberries. Vinous aromas of tart blackberries start this beer off. Sharp, acidic notes of tart berries on the palate lead to a sharp, dark berry taste that results in a finish with a prolonged dry fruit note. 7.25% ABV / $7.50 glass
