Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Brewed with raisins and aged in bourbon barrels with sour cherries and currants added.

Track 9 began as a few barrels of Cuvee de Tomme that hadn’t matured enough to make it to bottling last year. To those we added currants and additional dose of Brett and let Nature do what she would. The result is a jammy brew with just the right amount of tartness and funk.

Had this at the brewery last week. 17.99 for 375 ml. This is from notes.

Pours deep glowing burgundy with a fizzy, off white head that lasts a good while. Sweet current notes mingle with a subtle sourness and a good dose of earthy, funky brett. The taste follows suit with the same sourness mixed flawlessly with fruity and funky flavors. Chewy malt flavors lie in the back. The alcohol is surprisingly well hidden, its basically not there. The mouthfeel is creamy with soft carbonation bubbles and fullbodied. The finish is tart and dry with a lingering soft sourness.

This beer is incredible. Very, very complex and easy to drink. Hits all the bases for a good sour ale. Excellent stuff.

A: poured dark brown in color with dark reddish highlights and a little head that left some wisps of lacing sticking to the glass.

S: definitely some cherries upfront in the aroma with some type of vinous notes I'm assuming are from the currants with a bit of acidic tart qualities, good earthy woody presence and sweet bourbon notes.

T: plenty of fruitiness consisting of what the description mentions such as currants and cherries but with nice warm bourbon barrel character alongside wood oakiness, a touch of vanilla and acidic sour notes.

M: the brew was medium in body with a fair amount of carbonation which had a semi sweet, fruity, woody bourbony, acidic and sour finish.

O: interesting variation of the cuvee de tomme with good fruit flavor and complexity.
