So it’s been awhile since I’ve done a beer post, oops. Too busy drinking Aperol Spritz lately.๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ฌ Wanted to bring it back though with one of my local favs, Rare Barrel. An East Bay house of sours, ย these guys make some of the most mouth puckering brews around! ๐Ÿ˜™ That being said…they mellowed out ever so slightly with this dark sour. Still sour but softened a bit by theย aging in oak barrels and brettanomyces fermentation.

TASTE TEST: Minimal carbonation. Sour for sure but less then most extreme bright Rare Barrel beers.ย Dark cherry color. Ripe blueberry notes. Grapes (red not green). Not overly mouth puckering. Definitely notes of blackberry, and black currants. Hint of dark chocolate and raisens in the mouth but tart/tannic on the finish.ย ๐Ÿซ๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿ’

What’s the point of living in a city if you can’t enjoy rooftop drinking? Looking out over the cityscape on a warm summers eve….HA jokes on me cause it’s cloudy AF on this Sunday. Thank you, SF. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‘๐ŸŒ But that won’t stop me from living my best rooftop beer dreams.ย ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜

So….Roof beers anyone?? Sippinsundays? Let’s do it! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿบ
