Beer Review: Arrowhead Ales – Raspberry Cheesecake Barricade
Arrowhead Ales’ brilliance shines in another sour. This time, it’s their Raspberry Cheesecake Barricade.
If you’ve been following along with our beer reviews, you’ll remember that some of us are going on a bit of a sour-craze. I’m on that train as well, and this new sour did not disappoint. Naturally, when the local New Lenox brewery announced the Raspberry Cheesecake Barricade, we had to give it a try. The previously reviewed Blue Raspberry Vagrant can be revisited here and believe me when I tell you, both of these will be guaranteed additions to your sour arsenal.
Sporting a 5% ABV and a low IBU of 8, the Barricade is an extremely smooth yet strong and flavorful, fruity taste. I was genuinely surprised at how good the taste was and how subtle the sour was.
This beer was great when poured into a breathable glass yet it tasted just as great straight from the can as well. It comes in a four-pack of 16oz cans and costs about $16. It was well worth the price and I am most impressed with Arrowhead Ales yet again.
My fellow sour-enthusiast BuzzOnTap enjoyed it quite nicely as well, which you can see below:
Be on the lookout for more adventures into the wonderful world that is Arrowhead Ales Brewing in New Lenox, as they are quickly becoming a big favorite with us at On Tap Sports Net. They have a key lime sour that is calling my name next!
