750mL bottle acquired through the Reserve Society. Bottled 10/24/13. Served in a Bruery snifter.
Pours an opaque burgandy chestnut with a fluffy two finger off-white head. A small halo remains but not much else in the way of retention, including a lack of lace.
Smells sour with vinegar, tart cherry, funk and a subtle barrel sweetness.
Puckering array of flavors. Tart cherry, semi sour berries, funky, mildly yeasty and strong lacto sourness. A vague sweetness creeps in on the back end including oaky vanilla and a little brown sugar. Any alcohol is covered by the sourness. Almost seems too tart to allow the cherry and blackberries to shine.
Medium body with some pretty hefty carbonation. Cherry lemonade and funky tart aftertaste.
Not as sweet and significantly less berry flavor than I'd hoped but pretty good nonetheless. Nothing wrong here at all but despite the being enjoyable in it's own right there are plenty of other barreled Bruery sours that I prefer over this one.
