Served on tap into a snifter. 2012 vintage

A- Poured a murky reddish brown color with no head or lace. Not the prettiest beer, but you don't really expect it for the style so I can't hold it against the beer.

S- Very astringent aroma with tons of sour cherries, nail polish, and acidic pinot noir notes.

T- Very astringent and sour. Lots of sour cherry, pinot noir, nail polish, and wet paint taste. Definitely some bourbon, oak, slightly chocolatey notes in there.

M- Very dry, high carbonation, and pretty big warming on the finish

O- I like the flavor quite a bit on this beer but it was pretty fatiguing so not something I would really seek out again. Definitely a good beer to sit with and sip on

Serving type: on-tap

on-tap, beermongers in Portland

A bourbon-barrel aged kriek is a risky proposition - the bourbon has the potential to overpower the fruit and zing of a nice kriek. New Glarus nailed one, but they work with cherries better than anyone in the business. The block 15 effort was a little wonky - kind of buttery, bourbon provides some complexity but the clash of direction this beer were not appealing.
