2011 bottle.

Hazy reddish-brown color into a large wine glass (Prairie 2nd Anniv. because it was handy). Big puff of foam, 2-3 inches of head, simmering down to about 1/2 inch, and finally settling at a thin well-retaining layer; dots of lacing on the glass. Aroma of cherry candy, little bit of cough syrup, lacto-lemon. Taste of sour cherries and dough--cherry pie, basically--lemony acid, yogurt, definite bourbon notes in the finish. Prickly mouthfeel, slightly puckering, medium body, slightly filmy in the mouth. This didn't help my already raging heartburn. Higher ABV surprisingly well-hidden. Very enjoyable overall.

2013 project on tap at cascade. Served in an oversized snifter. 8 oz on the dot. $8.50. Appearance is dark cherry red and hazy. Small ringing of foam around the edge if the glass. Smells like maraschino cherries-lots of almond/benzaldehyde notes. Taste is sweet cherry pie filling. The bourbon is overpowered by cherries. As far as sourness, it is present as it drys the mouth out a bit, but it is nothing like the in your face power of say their Kriek. Doesn't not taste like it is 11.6% ABV at all. Well played.
