Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Mahlik on 12-14-2011

This NW-style sour ale is a special treat from the blenders. We took a 20 month old Thai cinnamon version of the Bourbonic and aged it a further four months on Bing cherries. Dark cherries, Bourbon and spices greet you in the nose. Big, rich, dark cherries, dates, oak, leather and tobacco dance on the palate. Deep cherry notes, dark fruits and a warming Bourbon flavor finish this off as only the Bourbonic can.

A - Very dark cherry. No head after pour.

S - Sweet as well as tart cherries.

T - Gueuze-like lactic tartness. Earthiness and bourbon. Cherry reappears to lend sour fruit character.

M - Quite thick, with medium carbonation.

O - Earthiness lends complexity and interest. Worthy trying.

Poured brown in color with pale yellowish brown highlights and a thin head that had absolutely no head and left nothing whatsoever sticking to the glass. Plenty og bourbon barrel character upfront in the aroma with signs of vanilla, subtle cherry fruit, mild booze presence, dark fruit notes and a little citrus zing hidding in the background. The vanilla was more dominent on the palate with nice tasty cherry flavor, good bourbon barrel wood accents, mild booze notes, a touch of plum dark fruit and underlying brown sugar. The brew was medium in body with low amount carbonation which had a sweet, fruity, mild boozy, bourbon barrel and tart finish. Very good variation of the base beer ans very glad I got to try it. Good lookin out beezler!
