4.11/5  rDev +1%

12 oz bottle procured several months ago
A: Poured into a large tulip. Giant amount of carbonation. Quickly receding head light-tan in color. Zero lacing on side of glass. Very red-ish amber color. Lots of particulate matter visible.
S: Sour cherries, malt, kind of a mix of beer, wine and champagne notes.
T: Wow. Lots of sour cherries. Sweetness from the malt. White wine and champagne. Almost no bitterness on the aftertaste but it is making my mouth water a lot and it makes me definitely want another sip.
M: An explosion of carbonation gives it a lot of crisp bite like champagne. I think the particles in suspension are the cherries and that being left on my tongue and its sourness is making my mouth water like crazy. I like it.
O: A very unique beer. The first I have had of this kind. This is the only one I had and it was a one time brew so I guess I probably won't be having any more of it. Too bad because I like it quite a bit. I would hhave rated it higher except there is not enough backbone to balance out the champagne characteristics. Its really pretty interesting and it could pass for champagne almost. For more information visit this page I just found: http://www.saintarnold.com/bb/

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep orange amber with a big head. Lots of wisps and a thick collar.

Smell - Cherries and some barrel funk. Some wine barrel. Caramel.

Taste - Lots of cherries blended into the pale malt. Not a ton of depth to it. Cherries and some white wine. A touch of acidity.

Mouthfeel - Overcarbonated. Medium to light body.

Overall - I don't get any old ale from this. Just cherries and wine barrel.
