4.8/5  rDev +7.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Pours rusty brown with a off white head dissipating into a ring with moderate lacing.

The sour cherries stand out in the aroma although it continuously changed as warmed. Lots of oak character as well along with just a kiss of bourbon and vanilla. As it warmed, more tannins came into play too

Flavors starts out with a big heaping of sour cherries. The bourbon is present throughout, but stays well in the background. Some oak, tannins and vanilla characteristics came out more as it warmed. The warmer it got the more the pinot and bourbon barrels asserted themselves.

Medium mouthfeel with good carbonation levels. Alcohol is very well hidden. Had I not known different, I would've pegged this at 6-7%

Been looking forward to trying this one for a while and it definitely lived up to expectations. One of the more complex sours I've had, every sip was something new and delicious. The evolution of it from slightly chilled to room temperature was also good as different elements shone through more at various temps. Absolutely phenomenal beer.

4.61/5  rDev +2.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a formerly corked and caged 750 ml bottle into a Cascade Brewing Barrel House branded snifter/short-stemmed tulip

Pours a murky burgundy-tinged mahogany capped by a light beige one and half finger head. Excellent retention and significant lacing. Oak, light lactic sour, wisps of general dark fruitiness and berry-like accents. Opens with both sour and sweet cherries, plums, and cranberries. Very light brown sugar and molasses join in. Pleasant oaky accents throughout. Finishes with juicy cherry tart and sour, continued pleasant oak, and just a tiny hint of underlying bourbon notes. Lighter side of medium bodied; smooth with moderate carbonation. It's hard to find a brewery in the U.S. putting out better sours than Cascade and Sang Noir is one of their best. Truly exceptional.
