Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 01-11-2013

This limited-release beer, all 100 gallons of it, comes directly from our 500 liter oak sherry barrel in the famous CBC Barrel Cellar. A blend of worts from several different brews has combined over the course of one year, as the beer has been constantly topped-up to compensate for evaporation from the barrel.

First had: on tap at CBC

Labeled as a"100% Brett, sherry barrel fermented sour grisette." Possibly my favorite beer sampled at the brewpub.

Slightly hazy pour, copper in color, with a thin foamy head that sank to a ringlet and left a bit of lacing on the glass. Classic Brett profile in the nose, essence of stone fruit, with some toasted grains in the background. A little pucker in the taste up front, fresh fruit, toasted rye, and a mild drying woodiness. Very tasty. Medium body, and dangerously drinkable at 4%ABV. (521 characters)

On tap at the brewpub. Soured Brett and oaky barrels in the nose. Smells like a Lost Abbey or RR sour. Puckering rye grain doesn't impart too much bitterness; sweetness from the sherry cask balances nicely. Slightly buttery finish.

Surprisingly delicious, considering my last experience with CBC's sours. Gonna grab another pour. (330 characters)
