Bruery & Cigar City collaboration.
Appearance- Poured into a flute. Fairly clear, deep amber with a purple hue. A small, yet very creamy just off white head develops. Great sticky lacing.
Smell- Lots of tart, ripe berries right up front with some cherry. A sturdy oaky presence, some vanilla, slight vinegar. Smells sour, but not all that much “funk”. Very inviting.
Taste- Cranberry right up front in the taste, pretty tart. Light cherry, slight grape, and a hint of lemon round out the fruit aspects. That leads into the strong oak barrel notes. Woodsy, earthy, some vanilla, lots of leather, somewhat musty. Slight vinegar again. There is a lingering chocolate too lightly roasted coffee malt aspect as well. Sour throughout, but not bracingly.
Mouthfeel- Medium body with medium carbonation. Fairly dry finish, tart on the sides of the tongue, enough residuals and sourness to warm the cheeks, but it’s not over the top sour. ABV’s hid perfectly. Personally, exactly how I like my sours.
Overall- I was very excited to try this and it did not disappoint. A very solid example of one of my new favorite styles, and also my first Cigar City experience. Expensive yes, 25 bucks a pop (at the bar), but definitely worth trying at least once. I would definitely drink and buy this again if I have the opportunity.
